PAYMENTS TO THE CONTRACTOR
You must be in control. Never pay him up front “for work he will do by Friday”, because this leaves you open to misunderstandings, arguments, and possible loss.
Explain to the contractor from the beginning that you do not want to steal his money and that you undertake to pay him for the work he has done, but that you will not pay him for work upfront.
HOW TO MANAGE AN ALTERATION
It is very complicated to draw up a contract and to manage an alteration project, because it has so many facets like demolishing, new work, changes to existing work and remove items for reuse. The best possible contract needs to be drawn up to avoid misunderstandings.
Record as much detail as possible in the contract. Make as many notes as possible on the plan (this forms part of the contract and MUST be signed with other contract documents).
TIPS WHEN DOING ALTERATIONS
1.1 If your house has cracks and you have, doubts about the soil employ the services of an engineer for the new work.
1.2 The minimum size of the outside trench for a single story building is 600 mm x 600 mm.
