    Construction Contracts (Why Bother?) and Lien Rights (Do I Have Them?) for Design Professionals

    This seminar will provide information on lien rights and breach of trust provisions under the Act. The Top five (or 10) contractual words or clauses to watch out for in a contract and are of particular concern to design professionals will be identified. Holdbacks - when to have and not to have - will be examined.  "We'll pay you when we get paid" vs. getting paid according to percentage completion of the work per contract and its legal ramifications will be discussed. Document retention requirements and the use of digital documents will also be discussed.
