a contract or buidling a new house / written or verbal? and References?

Post by Sherman on Sat Apr 28, 2018 9:47 am

In talking to building contractors, i've gotten a wiiiiiiiddddee variety of responses in how they bill and how they do their pricing. Some of you must have gone through this and have some lessons learned .....

One builder - no written contract, pay week to week, pay IMSS. Did give a start and ending date. One reference said he was good in meeting his schedule.

Another - charge is based on which 'level' you select ..... basic, standard or luxury. He can only give me a kinda/sorta response as to what is included in the basic, standard or luxury. I've asked for something in writing, but there is some resistence.

Another - $12,000mx per sq meter (actually that has come from 2 architects)

Another - cost plus 10%, and someone else was cost plus 15%.

What roughly goes into a contract?
I'm assuming an attorney writes this up?
Is it enforceable?
Or do you just make deductions in money to make sure the work is completed on time?

I've asked for 2 references from one guy with whom I have a tentative agreement to start. So far, i don't have them.
He was recommended to me by an architect who turned out to be someone I would not use. So that has cast a little shade on the recommendation.

Life here ... I appreciate your input!

Surely there must be someone on this board that has had a new house built and either had a formal contract or informal agreement and can comment on the parameters?

Just make sure you are there EVERYDAY...ALL DAY.....our contactor came in on time, on bid but because I had to split my time between the house and caring for my husband, corners were cut which we discovered after moving in.
