Gresham, OR asked in Contracts and Constitutional Law for Oregon

Q: Can the Subcontractor present a contract for the General Contractor to sign? Haven't seen any such contracts online.

I can only find Subcontractor Agreements online not a single General Contract agreement that the Subcontractor is presenting to the General. Does such a contract not exist? What protections can the Subcontractor have against the General Contractor?

A: You can feel free to make any contract you want. By and large there are no rules about what you can or can’t write down and agree to in a contract.

A lawyer can draft a simple contract for $500 or so in most cases.
