The JCT Standard Building Contract 2011

The JCT Standard Building Contract 2011 is an uncomplicated book about


a complex and commonly used contract. It straightforwardly and concisely
sets out exactly what the contract requires in various circumstances, as
far as possible without legal jargon and without assuming any particular
legal or contractual expertise from the reader. It explains, often from first
principles, exactly what is meant by a contract and why certain clauses, such as
extension of time clauses or liquidated damages clauses are present and more
importantly, what they mean. The book is divided into many chapters, each with
many sub-headings, to make it easy to read and to help readers to find relevant
explanations quickly. Tables and flowcharts are used to ensure clarity and most
chapters include a section dealing with common problems.
