The method of agreement with the contractor is the process of negotiating with the contractor. It begins before agreeing with him and signing the construction contract and not after the agreement as is common to most people. Negotiating terms and obligations for each party prevents conflicts from occurring or reduces their occurrence at the very least. Toward the other party and the courts have many issues between litigants on the contractor’s issue and in order not to reach this stage, you must negotiate and agree on everything before starting work and we will introduce you through this article to the most important things that you must negotiate and agree between you and the contractor.
Negotiate the quality of work:
Quality of work is a relative and different thing from one person to another, as a certain quality may be expected, while the contractor sees less quality that it is supposed to do.
You should be obligating him with a certain quality of work, and the matter is with the rest of the works, as the agreement facilitates you and avoids you problems.
Negotiate the cost of modifications:
Some contractors offer a cheap price to win the building construction deal because they know that you will require some adjustments and additions during work so they offer you large prices for the adjustments to compensate for the small price difference and to avoid that negotiation you should be write in the contract that the cost of making adjustments is according to the market price with the possibility of adding only 10% if it does not You reach an agreement and that there is a judgment between both of you you when there is no agreement in the price.
Negotiate a price reduction when deleting something:
Negotiate and persuade the contractor that you will reduce the amount specified for something that you have deleted according to the price set for this thing. For example, the agreement was for the contractor to perform gypsum decor for all rooms and the salon on specific forms, But during work I decided to cancel one of the rooms from gypsum work, the amount will be reduced by the amount of this room.
Impose a penalty clause for delay :
Leave the contractor to determine the time for handing over the work, and after setting the time and you are satisfied with this specific time, tell him that you will add a clause in the contract that requires him to pay a specific amount of money for each day of delay in handing over the work, for example $200 for each day of delay with the exception of days that do not enter such as Nature factors (rain, storms, etc.) or any other cause.
Negotiate the right to cancel the contract:
This friendly contractor, who I was convinced of before signing the contract, is now indifferent about his bad work, which is behind schedule, and on some days she sits to wait for him and never comes.
Reducing the services of a contractor during work can be a real problem if there is no cancellation method negotiated and registered in advance.
Negotiate and contract on:
In the event of a breach of contract, you can terminate the contract based on a written warning giving him a number of days during which he can remedy this breach.
If the breach is not fixed, you can have another contractor complete the project.
When your project ends with the contractor you chose, the main contractor will pay the difference between the contract price and the costs you incurred to finish the project.
