Contracts and other forms


#1

I am curious as to what a contract looks like, that i offer to a homeowner and commercial client. Are they different? I have one i copied and somewhat modified off a document site.
tell me what you think! What need s to change or be added?
I also have the CCU or Scratch waiver form from IWCA. I just need a solid contract. If needed i will take to a lawyers office to approve, otherwise i need something for now to get going. Heres the rough draft.Go easy on me:D

You need to give them some time! Saturdays are work days and family days… :smiley:

points =

ÿ Clean light fixtures
ÿ Other: _________________________________________

change to

  • Clean light fixtures
  • Other: ________________
  • Other: ________________
  • Other: ________________

Next =

If needed to cancel or reschedule please notify me within 3 hrs of original scheduled time agreed upon between both parties. (contractor and owner).

If needed to cancel or reschedule please notify me within [COLOR=“Red”]24 or 36 hrs [/COLOR]of original scheduled time agreed upon between both parties. (contractor and owner).

ÿ = * or other - hopefully this is just a formatting issue for you and not what it looks like for real.

Thanks for your reply.
The format is off. Also i was thinking originally to have the reschedule time at 24-36 hrs. I think i will change that.

Appreciate the info.

Hey Abel.

I personally dont mess around with contracts much anymore. I was big into them a few years back, but Ive learned that if people want to mess you over, they’ll do so whether they have a piece of paper signed or not, and you’ll land more clients who would have been otherwise scared away by the contract approach.

Some may disagree, but I wouldn’t worry too much about it. Keep it simple, do what you’ve promised, and people will pay.

I have never done a contract (for resi) and have never had an issue, of any kind.

I’m with Paul, never done a contract, never had any problems
