Web development service agreement

drawing up a formal contract or service agreement

I'm writing up a contract for a web design for a client, and I've never had to bother with the formality of a solid written contract before.

I'm looking for some tips on writing out the verbage on the contract itself, legalese, etc. Searching on google produced some good examples, but I would like to get one that was, if possible, public domain and relevant to New York (if that's necessary.)

Appreciate the help, and I love these boards! :)

I have never seen anything like that online Just go to your local Office Supply Store and they will bae "Bolier plate" contracts that you can rip apart. Look for a service contract or something like that and you should find everything that you need in it.

Hi Widhadh, welcome to the forums.

We've been through and around the contract issue a few times here. There are some online ones that are good, and if they are in Google, that is a fair indication you can use them for templates. Must confess - that's what I did many moons ago until one contract made it clear I needed legal help. I wouldn't be affraid to start with a good online copy and modify it to suit.

I am not sure if you people are aware of or not, but have you tried to visit www.allbusiness.com

They are having a HUGE list of contracts/agreements and you can download them in .doc format. Just change it as per your requirements. They are very professional and works GREAT.

I am sure this will help.

Having a solid contract is important because it protects you and your client. I found a number of them online and then modified them to suit my needs (just as Brett said). Try nolo.com a legal information site. I found it helpful. I will post the other links I used when I can find them. Good luck
