Lets Talk Contracts

Does anyone recommend having an attorney look over a standard AIA 101 and tweak it for your business?

Anyone have trouble with the standard 101 and regret not ammending something?

My typical project is contractor-owner,residential, under 1 million,fixed price.

Re: Lets Talk Contracts

Every business should have an attorney review and revise contracts every year. Especially, since laws are always being added and no canned contract has every protection. Even after an attorney reviews and revises you can bet that there are still many things missing that can put you in hot water.

Re: Lets Talk Contracts

For the record we are using aia 107/ now 104. Not sure why I? originally typed AIA 101 looking back.

Have decided to have it reviewed. It is probably Cheaper to spend some money protecting myself than spend money defending myself...
