My builder wants me to sign the contract immediately and isn’t giving me enough time to read it - what should I do? It is vital that you understand the contract before you sign it and that you have time to read it.


It is okay to push back and ask for time to read your contract and to have it reviewed. If your builder does not agree to give you more time, then you really need to question whether you want to enter into a contract with the builder and walking away from the contract.


It is vital that you understand the contract before you sign it and that you have time to read it.


If you do sign the contract, you could rely on section 35, which allows you to terminate the contract during a 5 day cooling off period, however this requires you end the contract when you just might want to amend one clause.


A contract review only takes 2-3 days and in the scheme project plan of your build it is such a short amount of time.
