An Ohio Subcontractor Agreement is a legally binding document that establishes the relationship between a contractor and a subcontractor.
It outlines both parties’ rights and responsibilities concerning a specific project, usually a construction job.
The subcontractor agreement details the scope of work, how much the contractor will pay the subcontractor, the payment due date, and specific requirements for the job, including insurance needs.
In many cases where a property owner hires a contractor to complete work, the general contractor hires a subcontractor to perform part of the tasks. For example, if a contractor is remodeling a house, he or she could hire a subcontractor to take care of the project’s electrical, plumbing, and painting portion.
