A South Carolina Subcontractor Agreement is a legally-binding document a general contractor uses to enter a relationship with a subcontractor.
This contract outlines the work the contractor hires the subcontractor to perform and documents the pay due to the subcontractor.
General contractors may hire a subcontractor to fill in skill gaps they may have, such as electrical or plumbing work they cannot perform.
Note that just about any construction-related project on a house would easily fall under South Carolina’s definition of a contractor-subcontractor relationship.
General contractors and subcontractors should always use a subcontractor agreement when doing business because it protects both parties by recording responsibilities and deadlines everyone can refer to in a dispute.
