The contract can be used by either the Customer or the Contractor for sites in England, Wales or Scotland.
The contract is suitable for works up to the value of £50,000 and can be applied to extensions, minor alterations, conversions, maintenance and repair work.
It is advisable to have a written contract when embarking on home improvements as this will help avoid misunderstandings by providing a clear definition of what work is included, the cost and key project dates. As a homeowner, it is particularly important to have a written contract as this will provide protection from unscrupulous tradesmen. A homeowner should be wary of engaging a builder who is not willing to enter into a contract.
This document sets out the precise arrangements for the work and provides for a seven day cooling off period after signing.
