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 agreements typically include the general contractor’s and subcontractor’s name and contact information, the scope of the work, the start and end dates or milestones, the payment amount, special requirements like who provides materials, and the signatures and dates of both parties.
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.
