A Minnesota subcontractor agreement is a document used to outline the scope of a working relationship between a contractor and a subcontractor. It details the terms of the agreement, when the subcontractor must complete the tasks, how much the contractor will pay the subcontractor, the payment due date, and often other critical information.
The contract sometimes includes requirements regarding insurance coverage and whether or not the subcontractor will pay for his or her travel expenses to get to the job site. Documenting all this is necessary before work begins so the subcontractor and contractor can refer to it in case of a dispute.
“Subcontractor: A person or company hired by a general contractor to complete a portion of a construction project for which the general contractor is responsible. Subcontractors are typically paid directly by the general contractor from payments made to the general contractor by the homeowner, although, in some cases, the homeowner may wish to consider paying the subcontractor directly to avoid the subcontractor filing a mechanic’s lien action. A subcontractor is not required to be licensed as a residential building contractor, residential remodeler, or residential roofer.”
