The course explains contracts specifically recommended for builders and remodelers: sales agreements, construction and remodeling contracts, warranties and subcontractor agreements, including mandatory and optional provisions.

Participants get a step-by-step explanation of how these contracts work and why they are a useful and important tool for developing better relationships with customers and suppliers, dispute resolution and risk management. Special emphasis is given to troubleshooting contracts to help minimize any loopholes.

Additionally, participants in this course will be able to:

  • Describe elements, benefits and interpretation principles of contracts
  • Identify additional resources related to construction law
  • Earn continuing education credits if you hold an NAHB designation (six hours toward CAPS, CGA, CGB, CGR, GMB, CSP, Master CSP, CGP, CMP, Master CGP and MIRM)

A veteran instructor of the classroom version of this course, Mark D. Shifton will lead these online sessions. He is a senior partner in the Princeton, New Jersey and New York City offices of Seiger Gfeller Laurie LLP. Mark represents owners, design professionals and contractors in construction disputes and serves as the marketing chair of the Defense Research Institute’s Construction Law Committee, as well as the co-chair of the New Jersey Defense Association’s Construction Law Committee.
