A Kansas subcontractor agreement outlines the terms by which a subcontractor is hired by a contractor (the “prime” or “general” contractor) to carry out a specific job contributing to the completion of a larger project. The terms of the agreement will include the type of work for which the subcontractor is hired, the amount and schedule of payment, and the date by which the contract must be fulfilled.
The subcontractor will not have a contract with the primary client, and therefore, the general contractor will be liable for any deficiency in their work. Once the subcontractor and contractor have signed the agreement, they will both be bound to its terms until the work has been finished or the contract terminates.
