Time Bar Provisions

Anglian Water Services Ltd v Laing O'Rourke Utilities Ltd [2010] CILL 2873 TCC Laing O'Rourke's solicitors had confirmed safe receipt of a faxed notice of dissatisfaction and Notice of Intention to Refer to Arbitration from Anglian. They then sought to argue that these were not validly served and therefore Anglian were time-barred in pursuing the arbitration. The court held that the service was valid but confirmed that Anglian would have been time-barred if this were not so. They could, however, have then sought an extension of time under s.12 Arbitration Act, since it would have been unjust to apply the time bar inflexibly when Anglian had been led to believe that the service was validly made.
