A Virginia subcontractor agreement authorizes a subcontractor to work under a general contractor and complete a specific area of a client’s project. Entering into an agreement helps to create a working relationship that suits the preferences of both parties and provides a layer of legal protection if one side fails to uphold their end of the contract. The completed document will feature a description of the subcontractor’s services, how they will be paid, the obligations of both parties, and the liability clauses that indemnify the appropriate parties from loss caused by forces outside of their control.
The document will state which party, if any, is authorized to terminate the contract early; otherwise, the agreement will remain in effect until the subcontractor has completed the assignment.
