Defects fixing period
The RIBA Small Project Work Plan defines the defects fixing period as:
‘Generally a 6 or 12 month period following Practical Completion in which the Client reports any defects to the Contract Administrator who may issue instructions to the Contractor to make good the defects within reasonable time. At the end of the Defects Fixing Period the final account of the Building Contact should be settled.’
