The RIBA Domestic Building Contract provides a simple and clearly laid out contract between a customer (client) and a contractor. It is suitable for all types of non-commercial work, such as work done to the customer’s own home including renovations, extensions, maintenance and new buildings. The contract is endorsed by the HomeOwners Alliance.
Innovations in the RIBA Domestic Building Contract address areas that other small works contracts do not cover including provisions for naming a subcontractor and compliance with current consumer regulations. If you are using other small works contacts, particularly for domestic projects, check that they are suitable for your project.
