About this tradesman contract
This contract is for any work which could broadly be referred to as “construction work”
This document template has been kept simple so that you can use it even on a very small job. We have included terms that limit your liability for work not done, breach of agreement or accident, and protect you from excessive claims from the client for things you could not foresee. The confidentiality paragraph helps to prevent unhappy clients posting negative reviews about your business on social networks and forums.
We have provided several payment options to make sure that you get paid what the client owes you for your work, in full and on time. In case the client does not pay up-front, the contract contains alternative provisions for payment.
You can put this document to your client and say “This is what we have agreed. Sign here.” You do not want to be embarrassed in presenting ten pages of legalese. We are giving you a document you can re-format to print on two sides of A4.
This contract also contains drafting notes to make quite clear what the text means and to advise you on choosing from the options we give.

"I needed an Agreement and Google, as always, was where I headed. I found the Net Lawman site and initially I thought I needed a relationship type Agreement but the Lodger one was absolutely perfect.
I didn't think it would be so easy so would recommend your website to anybody who was looking for an Agreement to suit their needs."Wendy Auger
"Brilliant. I am most grateful to Net Lawman. Your service standard is unparallel. I would strongly recommend any individual or organisation to Net Lawman."Dr. Smarajit Roy
"Net Lawman has helped me through several procedures. The documents in plain English, the drafting service and the delightful customer service means I can get the job done properly, at a price that doesn't affect a small businesses bottom line. Thank you!"Dan White
