Commercial contracts are pivotal documents for non-residential building projects, detailing specific agreements between involved parties, from contractual obligations to the scope of works. These contracts, often employed for business ventures, come in various forms. The fixed-price contract, for instance, has the contractor completing the project at a predetermined price. Contrarily, time and materials contracts bill according to the actual costs of labour, supplies, and equipment, whereas cost-plus contracts reimburse the contractor for project costs plus an agreed-upon fee. It’s important to choose the best option because each has advantages and disadvantages. A commercial contracts lawyer can guide you in making an informed choice, ensuring clarity, comprehensiveness, and legal soundness.
