NOTICE:  The residential construction industry in the State of Texas is subject to a variety of Texas-specific laws and regulations concerning contract formation, disclosure of information, payment obligations and various other legal matters, which are not addressed in the generic NAHB form contracts.  Failure to comply with such statutory and common law exposes Texas home builders to serious legal liabilities and significant expenses, including the voiding of non-compliant contracts.  If you are contemplating a residential construction project in the State of Texas, you must use contractual documents that conform to Texas laws and regulations in order to avoid costly legal and financial exposure.  To that end, the Texas Association of Builders promulgates a comprehensive set of residential contractual documents that are well vetted, regularly updated, and comply with Texas statutory and common law.
