    There are many simple books you can purchase online or the big chain stores that have samples. Also, you can go down to one of the office supply stores and get a generic one.

    I would charge a late fee because those are harder to fight. If you were getting 30.00 per mow or $120 per month. A finance charge of $10.00 ( for 30 days late ) is 120 % on a APR baisis.

    So here is mine less the check form for the services.

    would you charge a customer a early termination fee?

    If you have Microsoft Word, there may be a generic service agreement template available and you can just type in whatever applies for you.
