Understanding Fair Trading Contracts
The Fair Trading Contract is a standardised building contract provided by the New South Wales government. This contract is regularly updated to align with legislative changes and industry best practices, ensuring fairness and balance for both homeowners and builders.
Key features of the Fair Trading Contract encompass a comprehensive scope of work, well-defined terms for progress payment schedules, and provisions for effective dispute resolution. Standard clauses address common issues such as scope changes and project delays.
One notable advantage of the Fair Trading Contract is its accessibility and user-friendliness. Its standardised format simplifies the contracting process and contributes to reducing the risk of disputes between homeowners and builders for Central Coast and surrounding suburbs.
However, it’s essential to note that while the Fair Trading Contract offers homeowner-friendly features with clear dispute resolution provisions, it may not suit all construction projects. For more complex or specialised work, this standard form contract might not provide the level of detail required. Builders seeking greater flexibility may explore other contract options tailored to their specific needs.
At Contracts Specialist, our Fair Trading lawyer provides a comprehensive array of construction contract review and advisory services, tailored to the specific requirements of homeowners for Central Coast and its surrounding suburbs, including Avoca Beach, Picketts Valley, Copacabana, MacMasters Beach, Bateau Bay, Berkeley Vale, Chittaway Bay, and Glenning Valley.
