Types of Subcontracts for Construction Work

 

There are few exceptions when it comes to contract obligation.

There are two fundamental contract doctrines that apply to all contracts – sanctity of contract and autonomy of contract. Sanctity of contract means that each party is obligated to do what it agreed to do, even if performance is more difficult, costly, or time consuming than anticipated. Autonomy of a contract means that the parties are free to contract with whomever and for whatever they want, unless doing so is unlawful or violates public policy. This video reviews these contract doctrines and discusses the relationship between subcontractors and suppliers .
