SQL to select certain fields then set a column 'price' depending is there is a match, or a difference 'price' if null

Hi

I need to be able to build a list of address references (UPRN) and cross match with another table looking up the same UPRN .

If there IS a match on the 2nd table then I need to set a price column to be 10.00 otherwise if there is no match (null) I want to set a price of 20.00

This code lists all the UPRN data from t_blpu and then if there is a UPRN match in t_refuse_garden_2014 also lists that in the column next to it.

Really all I want is every c_uprn from t_blpu then a set of prices next to each one depending if there is a match or not.

For info the c_uprn in t_blpu is prefixed '0000' hence the addition.

SELECT     t_blpu.c_uprn, t_refuse_garden_2014.green_uprn
FROM         t_blpu LEFT OUTER JOIN
                      t_refuse_garden_2014 ON t_blpu.c_uprn = '0000' + t_refuse_garden_2014.green_uprn
ORDER BY t_refuse_garden_2014.green_uprn DESC

Something like this perhaps:
SELECT  b.c_uprn,
        g.green_uprn
	CASE 
		WHEN g.green_uprn IS NOT NULL THEN 10.00
		ELSE 20.00
	END Price
FROM    t_blpu b
        LEFT OUTER JOIN t_refuse_garden_2014 g ON b.c_uprn = '0000' + g.green_uprn
ORDER BY 
	g.green_uprn DESC

Thanks Anthony, its giving me this error when I paste it and try to run it. Apologies my SQL is ok at getting things with a select and join but nothing else :(

Error in SELECT clause: expression near 'CASE'.
