A Virginia Subcontractor Agreement outlines the working relationship between contractors and subcontractors within the state.
It details the subcontractor’s work when the contractor will pay the subcontractor and how much, and relevant information like insurance and materials requirements. Once signed and dated, the agreement becomes a legally binding contract in the event of a dispute.
A subcontractor is a person or business a contractor selects to perform certain tasks within a larger project, such as electrical or plumbing work on a home renovation. The subcontractor is accountable to and in a contractual relationship with the general contractor, not the property owner.
While subcontractors often provide specialized skills like electrical or plumbing expertise, they may also provide access to equipment, labor, or other resources.
