Welp, you’ve come to the right place.

Hey, JP Moses here!

This is the right place because it’s where you’ll scoop up another awesome resource that you can Swipe & Deploy.

Yep, we’re giving you a free, handy-dandy tool to better your business (yay!).

So, what goodie are we going to give away this time?

Well… how about a clear, simple template that you can (and should!) use as often as you like for agreements between you and any subcontractors you ever hire for renovations or rehabs on any of your properties?

Before we get to the actual agreement, let’s back up a smidge for some basic info…

Subcontractor 101

What’s a subcontractor?

Well, you hire a general contractor for a rehab project, and the GC then hires their own subcontractors. Think plumbers, electricians, carpenters, brick masons, and so on.

The GC manages all those people, which will typically cost you about 25% more for your project.

Some investors swear by GCs, and others cut them out and hire their own subcontractors, saving money.

And if you hire them directly, you need an agreement…

Why?

Because verbal agreements are risky, people’s memories might not be solid, and people remember conversations differently.

So you definitely want the details in writing — it’s not to imply that you don’t trust them; it’s just to make sure that it’s there in black and white to avoid any misunderstandings.

This agreement not only specifies the work to be done but it also documents that your subcontractors are not employees. They’re independent contractors. That matters for tax purposes.

OK, that’s the quick dirty…

But we’re not only handing you this super-useful agreement. I’ve also created an awesomely informative video walking through the various sections of the document.

Like what, you ask?

  • I’ll explain in layman’s terms what exactly subcontracting is
  • I’ll define and differentiate general contracting vs. subcontracting
  • Why it’s so important to use a contract
  • Laws you should know
  • How to ask subcontractors to sign a contract without it being awkward
  • How you can download and fill in the blanks of today’s contract template
  • And fuzzy areas that a subcontract agreement will clarify and which areas of the contract need to be specific.

OK, I bet you’re ready to get the low down on today’s swipe and deploy…

Press play, friends…
