JCT Repair and maintenance contract

The Joint Contracts Tribunal (JCT)’s repair and maintenance contract is intended to be used on commercial projects where there is a defined programme of repair and maintenance works for building/s.

JCT-RM is primarily used by local authorities and any other employer who places small and medium-size contracts, and are therefore expected to be experienced in handling contractors’ accounts; removing the need for an independent contract administrator. The contract enables flexible pricing and payment structures, allowing the employer to seek quotes based on fixed price, daywork, or other rates.

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.
