1. Scope of work. Have a clear and detailed list in the contract of what we are buying (including bolts and accessories for the roofing) + a signed set of drawings, including electricity details (number of plugs, switches and lights...). Everything else not mentioned in this list and shown in the drawings is understood to be for the builder.

2. Payment schedule. Try to achieve a neutral cash flow to avoid risk of loosing money if the builder leave the Site, as it can happen sometime. For the moment, we have defined 8 completion milestones: 5% down payment at contract signature, 10% for the piling, 10% for the 1st floor, 20% for the second floor, 10% for the roof structure and the walls, 10% for the roof, 20% for plaster, parquet,floor tiles, doors, windows an plumbing, 15% for outside stairs, electricity, painting and cleaning of the Site.

3. Guarantee of the work after completion of the house. I need to think about this one.

4. Schedule. Stipulate a start and completion date in the Contract with an associated liquidated damages per week.
