The amount which a quantity surveyor is entitled to claim, in the absence of any express contract fixing his remuneration, is a reasonable reward for the work and labour expended by him. The fact that a licence may not be obtainable to enable all the work to be carried out should not affect the surveyor's remuneration1.
Quantity surveyors usually charge a percentage on the contract price, but there is no custom binding on the persons employing them to pay on such a basis
