A Maine subcontractor agreement is a contract by which an individual or company (the “subcontractor”) is hired to work on a general contractor’s project. The completed document sets out the services that the subcontractor will need to provide, the amount and schedule of their payment, liability insurance requirements (if applicable), and the timeframe of their contract.
The general contractor will be totally liable to the primary client if any aspect of the subcontractor’s services is insufficient, defective, or not delivered on time. The subcontractor is liable only to the general contractor. Furthermore, the primary client is only responsible for paying the general contractor at the completion of their contract, whereas the general contractor will need to pay the subcontractor when their portion of the work is completed.
