Land Ownership & Allowances
“Allowances” in construction contracts are used to specify financial amounts for material, fixtures, or other elements of the work, the specifics of which are not determined at the time of drafting and finalizing the contract. These allowances can be practical when the item in question has not been specified, yet it is in the contractor’s best interests, especially if there are competitive bids, to underestimate allowances and thus minimize the cost of a project. Underestimation can also have downsides to potential buyers, as over-run costs can add up when the percentage of the change order and the purchase cost is out-of-pocket.
