Allowances & Land Owners

An "allowance" in a construction contract is an amount specified for certain items of work - usually materials or fixtures, but the details are not determined at the time of contracting. Allowances can be practical if a contract item has not yet been chosen or specified. However, the general contractor's best interest is to minimize the cost of the project (in a competitive bid situation) by intentionally under-estimating allowances. Under-estimated allowances can be dangerous to the buyer because they can easily add up to a huge cost over-run. If the value of the allowance is less than the amount needed to make the actual purchase for an item, then the money to purchase the item plus possible change order percentage charges comes out of your pocket.
