Understanding Fair Trading Contracts
The Fair Trading Contract is a standardised building contract issued by the New South Wales government, aimed at creating a balanced agreement between homeowners and builders. It is particularly relevant for residents of Penrith and its surrounding suburbs, such as Cambridge Park and Claremont Meadows. The contract is updated periodically to align with legislative changes and industry standards.
Key features include a well-defined scope of work, a comprehensive progress payment schedule, and robust provisions for dispute resolution. While it offers advantages like being homeowner-friendly and easy to use, it may not be suitable for projects requiring specialised work. Overall, it serves as a reliable framework for reducing the risk of disputes and safeguarding homeowners’ rights.
At Contracts Specialist, we offer a wide array of services tailored to meet the distinct needs of homeowners in Penrith and its surrounding areas like Cambridge Park and Claremont Meadows. Our services are designed to provide comprehensive legal support in the realm of Fair Trading contracts.
Engaging with Contracts Specialist for a contract review entails two key steps:
