Fundamentals of California Construction Contracts

California construction contracts are full of gotchas, be prepared.

This topic will help owners, contractors and subcontractors identify which contract clauses you need to focus on and negotiate.

Learn how to handle mechanic's liens, stop payment notices and surety bonds. This material will also give you the tools to protect yourself where there is a dispute between the parties. This is a critical course for those who want to optimize the profitability of your contract and avoid agreeing to a contract which might become a sink hole for your company.
