Subcontractor Agreement basics

As a general contractor, there may be times when extra help is needed to get a job done. Whether you're a subcontractor or just hiring one, a Subcontractor Agreement helps protect the interests of all parties by outlining expectations for the job so that your construction project is completed successfully.

What is a master subcontract agreement?

A master subcontractor agreement is a written agreement made between a contractor and subcontractor. Contract clauses in a master subcontract agreement will apply to future subcontracts made between the contractor and subcontractor.

How do I write a subcontract agreement?

Making a Subcontractor Agreement online is simple. Just answer a few questions, and Rocket Lawyer will build your document for you. Consider these questions beforehand to make the process speedier:

  • When will this agreement become effective?
  • Where will the services be performed?
  • What is the date and for what services was the original contract entered into?
  • How will the subcontractor be paid? How much will the subcontractor be paid?

Please note that this agreement is designed to be used in a construction context only. If you don't have all of the details you need, you can skip questions, and save your document for later.

What should be included in a subcontractor agreement?

As an agreement between a general contractor and subcontractor, a Subcontractor Agreement should describe the services and materials provided by the subcontractor, price of the work, and warranties of the parties. Other important clauses a Subcontractor Agreement should have include: insurance, default, change orders, and indemnification.

Do subcontractors get a 1099?

Yes, subcontractors get a 1099 Form. In general, you are required to send a 1099 Form to vendors or subcontractors if they are paid more than $600 from working with you during the calendar year.
