The ContractStore document B152 comprises:
- a one page form of agreement that you and your builder will sign
- standard Terms & Conditions (17 clauses)
- an Appendix with space for details a list of specific items such as the completion date, amount of insurances etc.
- Schedules to be completed with the scope of work, the contract price and payment terms.
