Contractor Agreement

California

Asked on Oct 23, 2023

Can a contractor agreement be transferred?

I am a homeowner looking to hire a contractor to complete a renovation project. I have been given a contractor agreement from another homeowner who has completed the same project, and I am wondering if the agreement can be transferred to my project. I am curious to know if the agreement needs to be amended or rewritten in any way in order for it to be legally binding for my project.

Luiza D.

Answered Dec 1, 2023

While it may be tempting to just use a "template" agreement, It is essential to ensure that the terms are appropriately tailored to your specific renovation project. The success of the agreement hinges a lot on its accuracy in reflecting the unique aspects of your situation. To determine the suitability of the existing contractor agreement, it's advisable to review the document thoroughly and assess its alignment with the particulars of your project. Factors such as project scope, timelines, costs, indemnification, attorneys fees provision and any specific requirements relevant to your renovation should be carefully considered. If there are significant differences between the completed project referenced in the agreement and your renovation, it may be necessary to amend or customize the terms accordingly. It's crucial to address any project-specific details, potential changes in scope, timelines, payment schedules, and other pertinent elements that might differ from the original agreement. Engaging with a legal professional experienced in contract law can provide valuable insights. They can assist in ensuring that the agreement is comprehensive, legally sound, and fully aligned with the intricacies of your renovation project. Remember, the key is to have a contract that adequately protects your interests and outlines clear expectations for both parties involved. If you have any further questions or need assistance in reviewing and customizing the agreement, seeking legal advice would be a prudent next step.

Contractor Agreement

Washington

Asked on Oct 22, 2023

Does a contractor agreement need notarization?

I am a property owner who recently hired a contractor to complete a renovation project on my home. I have been presented with a contractor agreement that needs to be signed by both parties, but I am unsure if the agreement needs to be notarized. I am seeking advice from a lawyer to ensure that I am correctly following the legal requirements in this situation.

Merry A.

Answered Nov 10, 2023

I have never heard of this type of contract being notarized - what is far more important, however, are all the terms of the agreement - especially such things as timelines, milestones, cost overruns, etc. If you are signing a contract for more than a few thousand dollars, I urge you to have a construction contract attorney review the contract before you sign it. I come across SO many problems with residential contractors I couldn't begin to list them all!

General Contractor Contract

Massachusetts

Asked on Jun 16, 2024

Can a general contractor include a clause in the contract that allows them to terminate the agreement without cause?

I am a homeowner who recently hired a general contractor to oversee a major renovation project on my property. We have signed a contract that outlines the scope of work, payment terms, and project timeline. However, I noticed a clause in the contract that states the general contractor has the right to terminate the agreement at any time, without providing a specific reason. This concerns me as I want to ensure that the contractor will complete the project as agreed upon. I would like to know if it is common and legally permissible for general contractors to include such termination clauses in their contracts, and what my rights and options are in this situation.

Mark L.

Answered Jun 19, 2024

Other than the terms that Massachusetts requires to appear in a home improvement contract between a homeowner and a registered home improvement contractor, the parties can agree to pretty much any other terms. The GC is probably including this "termination without cause" right in his standard agreement in case a more lucrative job comes along and he'd lose out on it if he continued on your project. I would strongly recommend that you insist the contract be amended to remove that clause. Here is a link to the Mass. Office of Consumer Affairs and Business Regulations' guidance on this topic: https://www.mass.gov/info-details/required-contract-terms-in-a-home-improvement-contract. And assuming he is a registered home improvement contractor, while amending the contract to strike the termination language, you should also add any of the Massachusetts-required terms that are missing, or update them as appropriate. Hopefully, you have a good relationship with your contractor and he will agree, at least to the removal of the termination language. If the contractor has integrity, he should agree to remove the language and add/update any missing required terms.
