Bring a copy of your Contract to be reviewed in class. Lunch is NOT included (with the exception of BIA of Whatcom County classes).
The Contracts portion of the class will teach you the important terms you need to address in your contract in order to minimize the occurrence and magnitude of problems that inevitably arise with customers or other contractors. You will learn how to write an improved contract that contains the required legal notices, limits your exposure to claims and liabilities, provides for economical resolution of a dispute, establishes a practical method of handling change orders, gives the customer a limited warranty, and precludes your customer from firing you and hiring somebody else to fix or complete your work. All good things you need in your standard contract. This seminar also explains the significant terms of the standard commercial subcontract and how these terms can present unwanted risk to the subcontractor. You will learn that these terms should be negotiated rather than blindly accepted. The Contracts seminar comes complete with a 238 page course book in a durable 3-ring binder that is totally current, accurate and explanatory. You can go online at www.linvillelawfirm.com and view the complete table of contents for this book.
The Lien section of the class will teach you how to prepare, record and foreclose a lien on either a commercial or residential project. The seminar will also teach you how to prepare, file and foreclose your lien against a payment bond or a retainage on any federal, state, county, or city public works project. Both liens and public works claims generally require a preliminary notice. This is all explained at the Lien seminar. The Lien seminar comes complete with a 343 page course book in a durable 3-ring binder that is totally current, accurate and explanatory. All necessary forms are included. The course book is an excellent reference guide, designed for practical application. You can go online at www.linvillelawfirm.com and view the complete table of contents for this book.
