16 SPECIFIC STRATEGIES TO ASSIST MASSACHUSETTS HOMEOWNERS IN GETTING WHAT THEY ARE ENTITLED TO FROM AND UNDER THEIR HOME IMPROVEMENT CONTRACTS AND PROJECTS
A seminar to be given by Jonathan Sauer, construction lawyer, on January 12, 13 and 19, 2019 at Sauer & Sauer, 284 Main Street, (Route 1A) Walpole, MA 02081 from 10am to 1pm.
Why should you go to this seminar?
Homeowners want to add an addition, make some renovations, or, possibly, add a second story. The banks interests are primarily to protect the value of the collateral - your house: not in making sure that you get what you are supposed to get and are paying for. The home improvement contractor is interested in making a profit. An architects interest is for a profitable project, even though you may not actually purchase the services you need from an architect. Simply because you dont know what you really need. What homeowners typically get from an architect - just A drawings - are almost useless.
So, really, its not the bank that is going to take care of you. Its not the contractor who is going to take care of you. Its not the architect who is going to take care of you. You are the only party who has any sustained interest in your getting what you have contracted and are paying for.
A significant piece of home improvement is a construction project. And, the question is, what do you know about organizing and then running a construction project? What do you know about dealing with an architect? How do you find and negotiate a contract with a home improvement contractor? What are the elements that should be in that contract? How do you ensure that construction proceeds properly without your overpaying? How do you deal with change orders/problems as they arise during construction? How do you finish that last ten percent of your contract work - the hardest part of any construction project? You already know that youll be writing checks to the bank for a very long time. Lets make sure you are writing them from your new, properly-constructed addition!
This seminar will teach you what you need to know to give you the best chance of getting through this process with the quality of construction you were hoping for, with the project being on time and on budget. The emphasis of this seminar is getting this right for the homeowners interests, from the period of contacting contractors for bids right through the commencement of construction and beyond. This seminar could save you thousands of dollars by doing things properly from the start.
