    Has any one ever done a no compete/no compitition form when selling a lawn business. What is the price based on, and so forth?

    Yup, just type it in on the contract.

    *The Seller agrees not to bid on any contracts that the Buyer is bidding on or currently has for 5 years.*

    Word it how ever you want but I thought that it was pretty straight forward.

    Hmmm... is that what you were talking about?

    If you try a non-compete form included their wife, kids and relatives. I had a brother-in-law sell a business and take a 5 year non-compete. My sister had his business back up and running smooth within a year in her name. He played golf, she hired his ex-employees. At the end of the 5 years they not only had all the customers back, they had another buyer ready. Sold it three times so far. Retired now. BTW was not a LCO.

    Contact an attorney. In some places, no compete clauses can't be enforced.
