Construction Contracts and Law - Live Online (March 10, 17 & 24)

Includes a Live Event on 03/10/2020 at 1:00 PM (EDT)

Many construction or remodeling companies are too small to hire full-time legal staff, so it's important to understand basic contract law. This course provides a step-by-step explanation of how contracts sustain positive customer and supplier relations, provide for resolution of disputes and minimize the risk of litigation. You will learn about mandatory and optional provisions, warranties, and arbitration procedures. Special emphasis is given to troubleshooting contracts for detrimental positions.

Participants in this course will be able to:

• Describe elements, benefits and interpretation principles of contracts
• Describe contracts recommended for builders and remodelers (sales agreements, construction contracts, remodeling contracts, warranties and subcontractor agreements), including mandatory and optional provisions
• Identify additional resources related to construction law
• Explain how contracts sustain positive customer and supplier relations, provide for resolution of disputes and minimize the risk of litigation
