A Utah subcontractor agreement is a contract that outlines the terms of a relationship between a general contractor and a subcontractor.
It covers details for a specific job, including payment, insurance, warranty, liability, dispute resolution, and other important provisions. A subcontractor agreement helps protect both parties from disputes. It also clarifies the expectations, responsibilities, and obligations of each party.
“‘Subcontractor’ means a person that contracts to provide preconstruction service or construction work to:
- a person other than the owner; or
- the owner, if the owner is an owner-builder.”
What if a subcontractor has an issue with receiving payment for their work?
While subcontractors do not contract directly with a property owner, instead through the general contractor, not that the subcontractor has the right to file a lien on the property for unpaid work or materials under the Utah Preconstruction and Construction Liens Law (Utah Code § 38-1a-101 et seq.).
This law specifies the rules and procedures for filing, enforcing, discharging, or waiving liens.
