Recent legal blog post from Law Firm ALTERNA’s attorney-at-law and partner Siret Siilbek discusses the contractor’s obligation to inform the customer.

Cooperation between contractor and customer might sometimes become complicated. The contractor is often looking for customer’s feedback and decisions, but the customer is not ready to decide due to insecurity.

Siret writes in her legal blog post about the Supreme Court’s decision no. 2-16-16481, where the court emphasised that the contractor shall ask the customer, what is the intended use of the building in order to ensure the contingency of achieving the objectives of contract. If this has not been done, the contractor who is relying on the instructions from customer shall not be exempted from liability of deficiencies of the work.
