A South Carolina subcontractor agreement defines the terms under which a contractor hires another party, the “subcontractor,” to complete a portion of work initially assigned to the contractor by their client. The form outlines the services the subcontractor will render, when the agreement begins and ends, the amount and frequency of payments, and whether the contractor will provide the tools, materials, and other equipment needed by the subcontractor to complete their assignment.
In addition to establishing project specifics, the agreement implements an official procedure for handling disputes between the parties. It also contains an indemnification provision that protects the contractor and their client from any damages the subcontractor may cause.
