The Residential Cost Plus Contracts Pack contains:
2 x Cost Plus Residential
Head contract for work undertaken on a cost plus fixed fee or percentage margin basis.
1 x Standard Trade Contract
Compatible with most MBA head contracts. This contract is for use between the builder and the trade contractor. Can also be used for residential work to create a written record (contract) between the head contractor and the trade contractor.
1 x Confirmation of Variation Form (Pad of 20 duplicate forms)
Assists with keeping a written record of all changes to the original scope of works in the head contract. Facilitates compliance with the Home Building Act 1989 (NSW) which provides that all variations must be in writing.
1 x Extension of Time Claim (Pad of 20 duplicate forms)
If the project is delayed you need to tell those affected and you need to do that in writing! Notify the cause and period of delay. If a delay is ongoing, it is best to provide an interim notice to the parties affected followed by a later final notice. If the delay is for a known period of time, then advise what the delay is. Remember a delay can be greater than just the actual event. E.g, Rain for 2 days makes the site inaccessible for 3 days. The delay is 5 days i.e. event and consequence. Does your contract allow you to claim compensation for the delay? If yes, do not leave this claim outstanding for too long! Time bars can stop claims being approved. Advise quickly as this will reduce problems.
The Master Builders Extension of Time Claim form is the perfect companion form for notification of delays.
This form comes in a pad of 20, unique colour duplicate copies. White copy - Contractor's Copy, Yellow Copy - Owner/Head Contractor's copy
