Despite the JCT contract being the most common standard form construction contract in the UK, accounting for about 70% of building projects, proper contracts are rare in domestic and residential jobs.
This is due to standard contracts being more associated with design and build or standard building contracts, rather than so called mixed projects or home improvements jobs.
However, failing to comply with fundamental legal regulations such as distance selling, cancellation rights, unfair commercial practises and consumer rights is asking for trouble.
