Construction Law/issue of Billing of Scaffolding Works


Dear Sir,

Good Day,

Currently,i amm deployed in Qatar working for a Scaffolding Company

I have got an issue here on our billing

Our Contract is a remeasurement basis and rates consisits for Erection & Dismantling per Cu.m,Rental per day/cu.m and hourly rate for Scaffolders in the event of any modifications or Erection & Dismatling

At initial stage in october in some part of the works was agreed to perform on Rental + Manpower instead of Erection and dismantling + Rental
(E+D - Charged on Time sheet basis for scaffolders)

After 5 Months (Upon submitting our billings on rental + manpower basis)we received the first Payment certificate from client for the above jobs on Erection & Dismantling + rental and they do agree for the same only
And payment was released and we convert our billing in line with their PC

after another two months they provide the PC;in that PC they have removed the Erection+Dismantling Cost even from the beginning(Paid amount) and saying that it must be rental + MP

It is really confusing and waiting for your piece of advice to tackle this issue

Dear Prem
In the contract, there is no provision for any change in payment condition without mutual understanding. In any contract parties are entered with an agreement between two or more parties.If there is an agreement, then no party has the power to change the provisons of contract agreement.

you are welcome for any follow up in this regard.
