Amending Standard Forms of Contract

A summary of the process and potential pitfalls

The advantage of using standard form contracts, such as the suite of JCT Building Contracts is that tried and tested wording, familiar to most practitioners reduces both negotiation time and cost and subsequent disputes. 

However, it’s likely that you will need to include specifics about your project in the contract and amending a standard form gives you the opportunity to do this. Despite the best of intentions of all parties, changes made without due consideration can cause problems during the project.

This seminar will cover:

  • Is there a precedent for the amendment?
  • Does it match the parties’ requirements?
  • Unintended consequences
  • Document management
  • Cases to understand
