Price: $35.00

Found the perfect house plan and ready to break ground? Congratulations! You are about to initiate an undertaking that will transform a plot of earth into the home of your dreams. As you move through each stage of the development process, many contractors and subcontractors will apply their skills to transform your home drawings into a beautiful home your family will enjoy.

Home building can be a complicated process, however, and legal regulations can be confusing. Misunderstandings between contractors and owners can often be prevented with a detailed document signed before work begins.

House Plans and More wants you to have a positive building experience. We developed a Legal Kit, that contains proposal forms, bid proposal forms, contractor proposal forms, construction proposal forms and general contractor forms, to help you build with confidence. The kit contains contracts and forms that cover several owners to general contractor and contractor to subcontractor arrangements. The Legal Kit includes:

  • Request for Proposal Forms
    • Fixed Price Request for Proposal, General Contractor to Subcontractor
    • Cost Plus Request for Proposal, General Contractor to Subcontractor
    • Fixed Price Request for Proposal, Owner to Contractor
    • Cost Plus Request for Proposal, Owner to Contractor

  • Legal Contract Forms

    • Fixed Price Contract, Contractor to Subcontractor, Exhibit A, Contractor/Subcontractor Scope of Work and Cost
    • Cost Plus Contract, Contractor to Subcontractor
    • Cost Plus Contract, Contractor to Subcontractor, Exhibit A, Contractor/Subcontractor Scope of Work and Cost

    • Change Construction Order, Contractor to Subcontractor
    • Change Construction Order Form, Owner to Contractor
    • Waiver of Lien/Waiver Lien Form

  • Other Forms
    • Itemized Cost Estimate
    • Warranty

We include instructions on how to use your Legal Kit. The documents are universal, so they are designed to be used with all building trades. Review by an attorney before signing any major agreement is always well advised. Since there can be up to 40 categories of work, each with a contractor or subcontractor, we allow you to make as many copies of the forms as you need to construct your home.

A contract is a two-way document and protects both parties. Accidents, material price fluctuation, local ordinances and code requirements can affect your relationship with a contractor. These documents can assist you in establishing a solid working relationship by creating, in writing, an understanding of the scope of work and payment method whether you are acting as the owner or the general contractor.
