This Contractor Agreement Template is suitable for use where you are the Customer and you are engaging a Contractor to provide you with a one off service.
Content and Importance: The importance of this Contractor Agreement Template is to set out in clear terms the services you require to be performed by the Contractor, the standard of the services, the time period in which the services are to be completed and what you are to pay for receiving those services.
Guarantee: This Contractor Agreement Template gives you the option to include a guarantee and indemnity. You should always consider whether you need a guarantee particularly when you are dealing with a Contractor. Ideally the guarantee should be given by a director of the company or the owner of the business. A guarantee is only as good as the financial capacity of the person giving the guarantee to pay pursuant to it. You should make your own inquiries as to whether the person giving the guarantee is a person with assets sufficient to meet any claim you might need to make under the guarantee.
Alternatively you may wish to consider requesting a bank guarantee from the contractor's bank for a fixed amount and for a realistic figure, having regard to the fee being paid and the associated risk relating to the project.
This Contractor Agreement Template is not suitable as a master building contract.
