Parris's Standard Form of Building Contract: JCT 98 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Joint Contracts Tribunal Standard Form of Building Contract, JCT 98, is now a well established and widely used form. That is not to say, however, that it is always well understood. It is a large, complex contract with a number of particularly difficult provisions. It is not surprising, therefore, that not much guidance has been published on the form.

This book, first written by John Parris in 1982, and revised in 1985, was widely regarded as a valuable commentary on the Standard Form. Unavailable for some years, it has now been substantially updated and completely rewritten by David Chappell.

Major changes have occurred since the last edition, including a raft of amendments to the contract itself, much new legislation including the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996, and substantial new case law. The book covers all these as well as the complex performance specified work provisions and the difficult problems of nomination. The nominated sub-contract conditions are referred to where appropriate, and the book contains guidance on related matters, such as warranties, letters of intent and quantum meruit.

The book is not simply a re-writing of the contract in simply terms. It contains very valuable insights and much needed guidance on some of the lesser known implications of the current form

The book will provide a valuable reference for clients' professional advisers and contractors, as well as for lawyers needing an introduction to the contract.

Synopsis:

"Look, if you are taking part, or even thinking of taking part, in a JCT98 adventure, buy the book, but don't put it on the shelf. Read it! And if you don't read the rules, I look forward to seeing you in court"

Tony Bingham, Building, February 2002

"this is the sort of book which construction professionals and building lawyers should have ready access to since it is easy to use, well laid out and with a good index including useful cross referencing of the principal clauses"Construction Industry Law Letter, March 2002

"This is a practical guide....based on a wealth of architectural and legal experience. Parris is a valuable addition to any construction law library". Peter Scott Caldwell, Arbitration, February 2003

Synopsis:

This book on the main form of building contract, JCT 98, has always occupied a unique position as being both an authoritative, yet readable, guide to the contract provisions, and the legal background to the form. The new edition includes substantial new case law and the many amendments to the contract issued since the book was last published.
