Owner / Builder Agreement
Fixed Price Contract: This is the standard owner/builder agreement where a plan and detailed specifications are drawn up. The builder adds his overhead and profit into the cost to establish a fixed price. The builder would pay all the bills and could provide the owner with paid releases of all subcontractors and vendors.
The advantage of this agreement is that the owner is tied into a set price in case material and labor costs rise. Draws are given to the builder in relation to percentages of work completed.
