A Nevada subcontractor agreement is a legal document contractors use to hire subcontractors to assist with a particular job or project. It includes relevant details designed to protect the interests of both parties, including but not limited to the scope of the work, how long that work should take, and how much and how the contractor will pay the subcontractor.
A contractor may need more specialized skills or other resources to complete a job. In those situations, they could enlist the help of a subcontractor to fill in any gaps and ensure they meet the job requirements. In Nevada, a contractor who enters an agreement with a property owner or client is the “prime contractor.” The subcontractor works for the prime contractor and not the owner.
“‘Lower-tiered subcontractor’ means a subcontractor who has agreed in an oral or written agreement with a higher-tiered contractor to provide work, materials, or equipment for a work of improvement.”
