Disclaimer

NAHB Electronic Contract Forms are crafted for use in residential construction projects, and have been vetted by experienced residential builders and remodelers.

However, no general information or legal tool can fit every circumstance, accordingly, the contract forms are provided "as is" and without any warranty, express or implied, of fitness for a particular purpose under the assumption that those using the documents will make sound and reasonable determinations as to suitability prior to their use. The contract forms so provided are generic documents, and are not state specific. BE ADVISED that some states mandate specific language or notices to be included in residential contracts, and by law may also require a certain location, font size, bold type, and/or capitalization for said language or notices. You understand that each form and any applicable instructions or guidance is not customized to your particular needs. For these reasons, and because the endorsement of contract documents can entail significant responsibilities and legal or tax consequences, it is recommended that an experienced attorney be consulted for advice on questions regarding proper usage. By providing these forms NAHB is not engaged in furnishing legal, accounting, or other professional advice, and nothing should be construed as a recommendation to use NAHB Electronic Contract Forms for any particular purpose or application. In no event shall NAHB be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental or consequential damages arising out of the use of NAHB Electronic Contract Forms. This site and applications are not intended to create any attorney-client relationship, and your use of NAHB Electronic Contract Forms does not and will not create an attorney-client relationship between you and NAHB.

Before you use any generic NAHB form contract, please be advised that some state home builders associations (HBAs), including Texas, Wisconsin, Alabama, Mississippi and South Carolina, and some local HBAs, currently provide state-specific residential construction contract forms. Should such a state-specific form be provided in your jurisdiction, you should consider using that form if it corresponds with your needs.
