During the general renovation of a building, a conflict between the owner of the property and the company commissioned to work in the area of building technology resulted in a Supreme Court hearing. Background: The owner refused to pay the wage due to deficiencies and also failed to deliver the bank guarantee requested by the contractor. Due to this, the contractor withdrew from the contract, meaning the desired repair of the deficiencies were no longer covered by contract until the wage was payed. The owner still held the view that the wage was not payable until the correction of all defects, and the case ultimately ended up at the Supreme Court, which adjudicated that the wage is due upon the withdrawal from the contract and that the contractor is released from duty of fixing all possible deficiencies.
