This latest title from the author provides comprehensive guidance to RIBA's two updated building contracts: the RIBA Domestic Building Contract 2018 and the RIBA Concise Building Contract 2018.
Introducing the contracts' features and benefits and covering all aspects of their use, from choosing and forming the right one for your project to guiding the parties through all its various stages, the Guide has been expanded with increased assistance on choice of form, tendering and contract formation. Additional detail on role and liabilities of contract administrator has been added, along with a new section on practical completion and completion, including certification. Assuming no current knowledge of the law or contract administration, this acts as a standalone guide for new users of the RIBA contracts, as well as a valuable update for previous users. It is an ideal companion for anybody using the latest building contracts.
