This Irish trade contract was developed originally for a home owner or selfbuilder but it can be used more widely. As well as the contract terms, there is an appendix plus schedules to include details of the scope of work, pricing and payment arrangements. This document is an Irish law version of our document B153. As with our documents B152 and IE152, the Irish Trade Contract was developed at the request of Self-Build Zone, a company providing 10 year warranty insurance for self-builders.
