JCT Repair and maintenance contract
The Joint Contracts Tribunal (JCT) was formed by the Royal Institute of British Architects(RIBA) in 1931 when the first JCT standard form of building contract was issued. It now produces a range of standard forms of contract for the construction of buildings accompanied by guidance notes and other standard forms of documentation
The Joint Contracts Tribunal (JCT)’s repair and maintenance contract (JCT-RM) is intended for use on commercial projects where there is a defined programme of repair and maintenance works for a building or buildings.
JCT-RM is primarily used by local authorities and any other employers who are used to placing a large number of small and medium-size contracts, and are therefore expected to be experienced in handling contractors’ accounts; removing the need for an independent contract administrator.
While the contract can be used on both public and private sector projects, it is not suitable for private homeowner projects. It is also not suitable for repair and maintenance that will be carried out over a fixed time period. The Measured Term Contract (MTC) is more suitable for periodic works.
