Contracts With Direct Owners: Essential Steps

When you have a written contract directly with the owner of the property or business (“contracts with direct owners”), adhering to specific steps is crucial to ensure that the terms of the contract are carried out by both parties. First, it is imperative to promptly record your Notice of Contract at the appropriate Registry of Deeds after both parties sign the written contract, irrespective of whether the work concludes before or after the specified completion date. Additionally, recording your Statement of Account at the Registry is a necessary step. Ensuring timely compliance with these requirements strengthens your position and protects your interests when contracting with direct property owners.
