Spotlight on Pre-Show Education: Construction Contracts & Law


Many construction and remodeling companies are not
equipped to have a full-time lawyer on staff or a law firm on retainer. This,
at times, can make handling your business from a legal perspective a bit tricky.
You have a deep desire to provide an amazing building experience for your
customers, yet you know you need to protect yourself, too. 

The NAHB course, Construction Contracts and Law, is
designed to help small builders and remodelers successfully protect your
business against legal problems with a well-written contract. This course will
provide you with a step-by-step explanation of how contracts sustain positive
customer and supplier relationships, provide a resolution for disputes and
minimize the risk of litigation.

After completing this course, you will be able to: 

  • Describe elements, benefits and
    interpretation principles of contracts.
  • Gain a solid
    understanding of contracts recommended for builders and remodelers, such
    as sales agreements, construction contracts, remodeling contracts and
    subcontractor agreements.
  • Understand mandatory and optional
    provisions, warranties and arbitration.
  • Identify
    additional resources related to construction law.

This is an all-day course and counts for 6 CE hours for
all NAHB designations except HCCP. The American Institute of Architects (AIA)
has also approved this course to qualify for 6 CE hours. 

Additionally, all registrants for this class will get 10%
