Your Home Extension Builders contract should be up to current standards.
Many ‘home-grown’ in house contracts are at risk of not keeping up with the latest requirements or have these requirements easily identifiable.
Extensions unlimited recommends industry produced contracts specific for the purpose which are user friendly for the owner and clearly spell out the responsibilities of all parties.
These include clear ‘fixed price’, a maximum 5% deposit for works over $20k, clear start and finish dates and a cooling off period.
The Contract should have a clear appendix defining each stage in layman’s terms and should clearly identify works attributed.
Extensions unlimited use Master Builders Contract HIC-5 (Home improvement Contract 5).
Don’t settle for anything unclear or illegal.
