Using Contracts With Contractors

2 Replies

Hello All,

I was wondering if anyone had a blank contract that I could reference and use when working with a general contractor for my first flip. Some type of contract that would obviously protect me. I am just getting started and would love to have an attorney draft something up, but I am pressed for cash right now. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you...

@J Scott has the answers for this type of question. I'd recommend his Book (see also http://www.biggerpockets.com/forums/517/topics/85441-biggerpockets-presents-the-book-on-flipping-houses-and-the-book-on-estimating-rehab-costs---now-on-sale and http://www.biggerpockets.com/store/ebooks) and if I recall correctly there are details in there that address the question you ask...
