The term Quantum Meruit Report comes from a Latin word that means “what one has earned” , or in building terms “what the job is worth”.
A Quantum Meruit Report is used to measure the sum of the amount of works that have been performed during the task of Building & Construction, were the works have not been given written approval and verbal agreement were reached at the time of construction, but disagreements arise when the final invoice is provided to your client.
As the law see it, a Building Contractor or Sub Contractor are entitled to be paid a fair and reasonable sum for works performed and materials supplied.
This is called undue enrichment, when the Home Owner have gained extra value to the property, whilst the builder was providing labour & material that was not included within the contract. Or when a sub contractor provides services & materials to the head contractor, not included in there sub contract agreement.
