Contract Documents

There are numerous contracts available and your builder should be able to give you one they use, tailored for you. Be wary, however. Not all contracts are equal and may not safeguard your interests.

NZ Standards provides a contract (click here) which you can buy for around $70, or you can go to the Build Safe site, run by the Building Disputes Tribunal, who also run an escrow service - where the homeowner pays into a trust account so the builder can see funds are available and can build confidently, but the money doesn't get paid over until the work has been completed satisfactorily which protects the homeowner from shoddy work.
