  • Building Contract - Essential clauses

    Hi,

    I am about to enter into a building contract for an extension and wanted to double check essential clauses that should be included in the contract.

    Having been burnt before concerning delivery dates my primary concern is re delivery dates and how I enforce these and subsequent penalties if they are missed, so any help to ensure this is water tight would be much appreciated.

    Thank you

    Very wise move. Have the building company offered to supply a standard agreement or are you wanting to draft one specifically for this job.
    "Although scalar fields are Lorentz scalars, they may transform nontrivially under other symmetries, such as flavour or isospin. For example, the pion is invariant under the restricted Lorentz group, but is an isospin triplet (meaning it transforms like a three component vector under the SU(2) isospin symmetry). Furthermore, it picks up a negative phase under parity inversion, so it transforms nontrivially under the full Lorentz group; such particles are called pseudoscalar rather than scalar. Most mesons are pseudoscalar particles." (finally explained to a captivated Celestine by Professor Brian Cox on Wednesday 27th June 2012 )

      I am wanting to include something specific in this regard hence why I am asking. I am not sure if I would want to trust their 'standard' format so I need to be clear what is going to ensure I am covered should they delay. Something that introduces a penalty on a rolling basis, something i.e if they are a month late then then the bill is reduced by 20% etc.

      I want something that will make them focus and not get distracted with other jobs, plate spinning as usual builders do.

        I think the JCT Homeowners Contract contains penalty clauses and sets the liquidated damages for all circumstances
