Contract Documents

It still remains a mystery why so many of the MBA’s members both Principal and Subcontractors and clients continue to enter into Building Contracts without using one of the several Standard Forms of Printed Contract Agreements which are available to suit every type of project and drafted by experts. 

 

Contracts continue to be entered into on “a wish and a prayer” or the back of a cigarette box leaving many questions unanswered and creating a contractual time bomb loaded with risks for both parties.

 

The cost of buying a Standard Form of Agreement is inevitably a fraction of the costs involved when the “wheels come off” yet many chose to ignore this vital step and use unsatisfactory home grown documentation or none at all.

 

The MBA provides a variety of contract documents which have been developed over many years.

Always insist on an MBA contract document.
