Accepted risks

- risk factors which, in the course of a building contract, are the responsibility of the client rather than the contractor, for example, these could include unforseen problems relating to the structure of the building which is the subject of the contract, or to problems which could arise through the actions of surrounding owners. They are particularly relevant to contracts involving existing buildings and therefore to all manner of conservation work.
