It gives you and/or your client the right to terminate the contract after meeting specified conditions or events. For example the contract can be canceled by providing 30 days written notice.

no there is none of that. i work hard to give them what they want and if they have a problim with it i will try and fix it, but pretty much when they sign that they are gonna pay for the whole season of mowing (this dont include clean-ups or snow plowing) it just includes mowing trimming and edging. if they dont want to then they will pay for the rest of the year and i will not show up any more. alot of places do that

Whats wrong with using the out line from another company?Your not getting their bid to under cut them,just a few sheets of paper that gives you an out line to go by.If you find a good flier that works better then what you have then It would be smart to re do your own flier based off of the other guys.To not do so would be to not do your self justice.

You aren't asking for an outline. You are asking for the entire contract with the pricing removed. It's someone else's intellectual property and you are stealing it.

If I take and re write the whole thing to fit my needs then I dont see how I'm stealing it.my version sounds alot better.I never asked for it.Thats what I was given as a list of contract stipulations.My contract looks nothing like thiers,I did just what I said and used it as an outline.

If you are rewriting the whole thing then why did you need the other guys contract? Would you let someone use your equipment on the weekends? You're not using it so let someone else. You wouldn't because its your stuff and its valuable to you.

I had no idea what a contract looked liked nor did I need it up untill the point that I was asked to put In a bid and they gave me the papers.At that point what should I have done.I could (a)ignor the blessing in my lap and go out and spend some money on some computer disc.Or (b)Use my head and.I went with B.If some of you think thats wrong Im sorry but I'll do it again if some thing comes up.Now that I have a basis I can change the one I have to fit any situation.Work smart not hard brother
