What is the importance of Special Conditions?
It is best for Special Conditions to be incorporated into your contract, to protect you against potentially unfair terms. Standard form construction contracts issued by building and construction industry associations are generally written for the benefit and protection of their builder-members, hence, they tend to be more favourable to themselves than to the homeowner.
You may include special conditions in your contract as a precautionary measure against one-sided stipulations.
