Contracting with a builder (pack)

About this service

This pack provides the key documents required to create a basic legal record of the agreement you make with a builder when you engage their services for work. It provides a request for work estimations that should be completed in order to document the scope of the work that will be undertaken for the agreed price, and a small scale contract that will dictate the terms under which the work will proceed. See the individual information associated with each document in this pack for a full description of their use.

Included in this service:

  • Request an estimate or quotation from a builder
    Use this letter to request an estimate or a quotation from a builder for undertaking building work. An estimate is an educated guess at what a job may cost, whilst a quotation is a fixed price for the work completed. You may find that a builder is more likely to give you an estimate than a quotation - this document includes guidance about how you might convert an estimate into a quotation. There is also information about how to assess whether the estimate/quotation you have been given is a good price for the work involved.
  • Small-scale building contract
    Use this document to create a contract with a builder to complete small-scale building work in a domestic environment. It is intended to encompass minor alterations to the home including decorating, garden design, and other small jobs. It is not suitable for the construction of a new house or flat, or construction where the services of an architect or engineer are being used. For use in the UK only.

Most documents take about 15 - 45 minutes
