As I sit down to write my annual list of resolutions for contractors, I am amazed at how much things changed in 2020. Construction was going well and then, in March 2020, COVID-19 hit. At first, we thought it was going to be a disaster for the construction industry. States, cities and towns shut down projects and many applied for PPP loans. Then, something amazing happened. Construction was considered an essential service and everyone was back to work.  That said, the work world changed: companies were donating their PPE to frontline workers, COVID-19 protocols had to be followed and paperwork had to be filed. Everyone was scrambling to figure out how to comply and keep their businesses going. So, you may or may not ask, what was I, as a construction lawyer doing? I spent March and April thinking about the new risks contractors/construction companies were facing and developing contract clauses to protect the industry. I wrote a number of blog posts with clauses to add to your contra

Make Sure You are Protected.
I Can Help.
The new Lead-Based Paint Renovation, Repair and Painting Program Rule went into effect on April 22, 2010.  The law is continuing to change.
Are you protected?  
Contractors need to protect themselves by adding clauses to their contracts with homeowners and maintaining good contracts with subcontractors.  
Contractor agreements for renovation projects must also comply with the State Home Improvement Contractor Law and include additional provisions that protect you and your company.
How I can help: 
I have developed contract clauses that take all applicable laws into account.  
* I will insert the Lead Paint provisions into your homeowner and subcontractor contracts, and review these contracts for compliance with state and federal law.
* I will make recommendations for improvements and additions to your contract and quote a flat fee for these updates. 
* I can also provide pricing for developing new home contractor/homeowner, general contractor/subcontractor and other construction contracts.
One Time Fee:  $495 (lead paint clauses only)
