Why do I need Contractural Advice ?
Under almost every circumstance, a Formal Building Contract is recommended above simple exchange of correspondence and certainly above verbal agreements.
There are many alternative forms of standard contracts issued by a number of differing bodies.
The alternative forms are designed to cover the simplest elements of work through to the most complex with their respective range of project values, but all the alternative forms are designed to clearly establish and set out the intention of the parties.
The advantage of a standard form of contract is that the document will generally be acceptable to all parties. The employing party normally raises the documents, but occasionally, one party will seek to amend the standard contract terms, or impose their own form of contract or terms. Whichever party you are to a contract, you need to be very cautious if the other party is attempting to invoke the latter elements.
RBC can offer advice, guide you through the alternative forms of contract and if required prepare all Contract Documents on your behalf, be you Employer, Main or Sub Contractor.
RBC can then Project Manage your project by managing all day to day aspects including payment recommendations, adherence to programme and specification and ensuring that all third party inspections are undertaken, right through to completion and then the maintenance period.
Remember that we make no charge for an initial consultation.
