The idea is to clarify the expectations, as much as possible, about what the general phrase kitchen renovation means.

Time for Performance:: Among the most frequent complaints about home contractors is the time of performance. Homeowners frequently feel that their contractors are taking far longer than they anticipated. Your contract is an opportunity to lay out basic expectations. For example, you can include specific benchmarks: Tiling to be completed by April 30, 2018 or Old stucco to be removed by March 1, 2018 This creates clarity. You can also include an overall deadline, and indicate that time is of the essence (a legal phrase that would demonstrate to a court that the contractor had notice that timely completion of the work was a crucial component of your contract).

Schedule of Contractor?s Work: Home improvements can be invasive from the perspective of someone trying to live in the home. It is a smart ideas to spell out exactly when your contractor will be expected to be in your home. Weekends, Evenings Afternoons Will he be given a key Clarifying these logistical scheduling issues will save some time down the road.

Payment Amount and Schedule: Obviously, the contract must state the amount that you will pay your contractor for the work. But it should also go into more detail: How will you pay, and when will you pay by check Wire transfer It is generally smart to structure payment in instalments. This creates an obvious incentive for the contractor to continue working at pace. It is also common to withhold what is known as retainage usually 5-10% from each payment until after the entire project is complete. Retainage allows you to keep some degree of influence over the contractor, again to ensure that the work is finished as expected.

Type of Payment: Generally, home improvement contracts fall into two types: Fixed costs or Time and materials. Fixed cost contracts are situations in which the contractor’s payment is a single dollar amount. Time and materials contracts are contracts where the contractor will charge for the labour and materials (usually hourly pay rates for workers, plus invoices and receipts for materials). In most cases, a lump sum, fixed costs contract is more favourable to homeowners. But regardless of the type of payment, the type of contract should be clearly identified.

Method for Changes to the Scope: Sometimes, a homeowner will have a change of mind about certain aspects of the job along the way. You’ll see those blue tiles you chose installed in your kitchen and realize that you made a horrible mistake. Sometimes, a contractor will not be able to perform in exactly the manner he promised; for example, maybe certain materials he thought were available to him are not, in fact, on the market anymore. Your contract should state the time period within which either of you can make such requests for changes to the scope of work, and the ramifications for payment. Typically, you would pay time and materials for any changes unless a new fixed sum were agreed upon.

Method for Dispute Resolution: Disputes happen. A dispute resolution clause in your contract can lay out the procedure for how such disputes might be resolved. For example, the clause might provide for mandatory mediation of the dispute (whereby you and your contractor would sit down with a trained mediator to attempt to work out a solution). Alternatively, it might provide for binding arbitration, a process where an arbitrator makes a binding decision about the outcome of your dispute. Such a clause might also simply state that any disputes must be filed in a particular court applying a particular state’s law. You should select the county court that is most convenient for you.

The A Katha denotes a document that certifies that the property owner has duly paid relevant property taxes to the BBMP and is in ownership of a legal property. With an A Katha in hand, property owners can apply for trade licenses, building licenses, or avail loans on the property.

The B Katha is a separate register maintained by the BBMP that lists the illegal properties (as per Karnataka High Court order in December 2014) that have ownership in the city of Bangalore, even when the civic charges for the property have been paid by the owner. The B Katha pertains to Section 108A of the Karnataka Municipal Act, 1976 that was amended in 2009.

The major differences between A Katha and B Katha Properties are as follows:

A Katha properties are legal in the eyes of the law while B Katha properties are effectively illegal even if the ownership documents for the property are in order.

A Katha property holder can easily resell or transfer ownership of their property while this is not possible for people holding only the B Katha documents.

A Katha properties can have trade licenses while B Katha property holders are barred from having trade licenses.

A Katha properties have construction permits and can expand the properties while B Katha properties are restricted from doing this.

Loans can be availed on and for A Katha properties while B Katha properties cannot avail loans.

A Katha is a final document certifying that your property is completely legal and available for trade while B Katha is the temporary document that needs to be upgraded to A Katha to avail the complete set of services associated with owning a property in Bangalore.

B Katha properties have to satisfy various criteria such as DC converted property, payment of all property taxes till date and betterment charges to be paid to BBMP to convert them to A Katha properties.
