What is this form for?
You can use this Variation Form (or Change Order) to record changes that are agreed during the course of a building contract.
You will have much less trouble on a project if you have a written record of all changes, both with regard to scope of work and cost as well as any change to the agreed completion date.
What does a variation form contain?
This form is simple and easy to complete. It contains a description of the change plus the cost and time implications. The form also has space for the contract price and completion date to be adjusted.
Use a fresh copy of the Variation Form for each change. You only need to buy it once: all our templates are in MS Word.
You can use it with any of our construction contracts whether you are a self=builder or the client and use our document B152 or a building contractor who uses our B137 which has standard terms and a quotation form.
For general guidance on issues that need to be considered in the contracts for a building project, see our free document Guidance Notes for a Home Builder Z165.

When I download the document, can I change it and/or use it more than once?
Yes, all ContractStore’s templates are in MS Word and you can use the contract on more than one project. For more information, watch the video on this page of our website or see our FAQs
ContractStore supplies templates and is not a law firm. But experienced lawyers write all our templates, so we can arrange legal assistance for customers who need special terms in one of our documents or a bespoke template. .
