    You may wish to change your cancellation term to a 10 day notice.

    so you don't make a trip over there and have them come running out to stop you
  6. what about a late payment policy, collections policy, porperty transfer policy, a sole executor for service rendered. just a few things that you might want to consider writing in.

    I knew I was forgetting to include something on my contracts! I pruposely have held off on sending it to the printers because I knew I'd realize I left something out and would need to reprint.

    I've added this sentence to my contracts for 2004:

    Meier’s Landscaper Maintenace will not be held repsonsible for damage to improperly retracting sprinkler heads, plastic landscape lighting installed in lawn area, toys left in lawn area, or line trimmer wear on fence posts.

    I'm guessing that ought to do it.

    As mentioned...payment and collections policy.

    If you have to go to court, they should pay the costs involved.

    I have been reading post and I am trying to creat an agreement. But this just gives me a headache. Can I just put in the agreement basic things like: cost, cuttings, etc and have a place for the customer to sign it? (OR) Do I need to really fine tune it in detail and have it looked over by whoever to see if it will work.
