This contract is for a home owner/occupier who has not appointed a consultant to administer the contract. The customer deals directly with the contractor.
It is suitable for small domestic building work, such as extensions and alterations.
This is a consumer contract for a residential occupier; therefore it is excluded from the provisions of the Construction Act. However the contract does provide for adjudication in the event of a dispute between the home owner and the contractor.
The works are carried out for an agreed lump sum (including VAT), which can be paid in a single payment on completion, or agreed interim payments.
Part 1 (The arrangements for the work) covers:
The work to be done, Planning permission, building regulations and party walls, Using facilities on the premises, Price, Payment, The working period, Product guarantees, Insurance, Working hours, Occupation and security of the premises, and Disputes.

Contractors responsibilities, Customers responsibilities, Health and safety, Changing the work details, Extending the working period, Payment,

5 of 5 JCT homeowners contract September 16, 2020
Reviewer: Carol Whitehead from Seaford, East Sussex United Kingdom  
Malcom was able to advise me on exactly which contract I needed for a very small simple extension. I had been told I needed to use the JCT Minor Works but the JCT Homeowner Contract was just as valid for my particular simple build job and easier for me to use with our builder with no administrator / architect on site. Simple and clear to use. Prompt delivery. The house insurers  for buildings and contents like you to use JCT contracts when you do building work! I didnt know this so that was a bonus when I was sorting that out.
Thank you Malcom
