An adjudicator will give a copy of the decision to both parties after payment of their fees has been paid. Both parties are equally responsible for paying the adjudicator’s fees and expenses unless the adjudicator decides otherwise.
The maximum fees including expenses an adjudicator can charge for deciding an adjudication application relating to a progress payment of no more than $25,000:
|Maximum amount||Reasonable fee including expenses|
|If progress payment is not more than $5,000||$620|
|If progress payment is more than $5,000 and up to $15,000||$930|
|If progress payment is more than $15,000 and up to $20,000||$1860|
|If the progress payment is more than $20,000 and up to $25,000||$2070|
|Above $25,000||If no amount is agreed for fees and expenses between the adjudicator and the parties, the adjudicator is entitled to an amount that is reasonable having regard to the work done and expenses incurred by the adjudicator.|
