Construction projects can be complex, time consuming, and expensive. If you are managing a construction project, you may be considering hiring any number of specialized contractors from carpenters and roofers to plumbers and electricians. Rather than negotiating, executing, and managing all of the contractors involved in a typical construction project, you may want to consider hiring a contractor.
A contractor can help make sure your next construction project moves forward quickly and efficiently. However, in order for this to be possible, you must have a clear agreement explaining the terms, conditions, and scope of responsibilities of every party involved. This interactive construction contract will help you create an agreement that is clear, accurate, and easy-to-follow. By setting out a framework for the time and manner a project will be carried out, this document is an important first step toward the completion of a successful construction or renovation.
This construction contract creates a binding agreement between a property owner and a contractor, and the construction project must be carried out according to its terms. Any delay, cost overrun, failure to perform, or defective material can give rise to legal liability on behalf of the contractor, so parties should customize the terms of their construction contracts according to what works for them.
Also consider using this construction contract as a standard business form for your contracting business. You can use this interactive, step-by-step guide to develop a standard agreement that includes terms regarding important business practices.
