Look Who’s Shacking Up Together!

Your contracts will always be up-to-date and iron-clad! They were the best contracts that could be had saample the expense of an attorney. State-Required Documents Each state’s program has every single form required by that state. And once again I haven’t even touched on the many copies of the boiler-plate subcontractor contract you’ll need. The only way that boiler-plate contracts will ever be truly suitable ‘for most projects’ is when contractors all start doing the exact same work and all the construction projects are exactly the same.

Unfortunately though the prices on these documents are astronomical – almost like the AIA thinks its forms aren’t just the gold standard but that they’re actually made of gold! There was a time when the AIA contracts were considered ‘the gold standard’.

I’m also pretty sure rather presumptuous I am at times ;o that it’s rather obvious to you, an zample contractor, that there are waaaaay more project sizes than the AIA could ever account for with contracts. When using a contract that an attorney draws up for you it would be reusable an unlimited number of times presumably and would most likely be in Microsoft Word format.


And how can it possibly take into account every type of trade you’ll ever need, and every subcontractor you’ll ever hire? But really – how can boiler-plate zample be “sufficient” or “good enough” for any contractor or any project? The form s reside in your library at PDFFiller waiting for you whenever you need them.

And I haven’t even yet taken into account all the contracts that you have to purchase for each sub on the job! Nothing on my websites is to be considered legal advice.

Obviously having a contract that you can fill in with your computer and re-use is a definite pro as opposed to a con when it comes to hiring an attorney.

It’s a way for the AIA to ensure that you purchase new forms every time you samplee one; they know that the red text isn’t something you want to put in front of your customers or your subs.

Everything is written from “in the trenches” experience. And if you sakple to use photocopies beware that there’s a line of red text at the bottom of the document that warns the user and recipient that if the text isn’t red then the document isn’t original and could be out-of-date. Sure it’s written for your company but how can it possibly take into account every project that you’ll ever do?

You’d pay probably about the same as 5 to 10 AIA documents would cost you – but after those 5 to 10 uses you’d have to spend more money to get more AIA documents.
