Having built my web development business website, I now need to consider contracts that my clients will sign so that the work agreements are enforced by law and so that the clients feel comfortable.
I am based in England (London). I make websites for a flat rate, though I also charge monthly fees for Social Media Marketing, Web Maintenance, Search Engine Optimisation.
Do I need to create one contract for the flat rate (for example, GBP 10,000 for a fully developed, working and responsive website) and another contract for the monthly payments? I would like to include into the monthly payments contract a 6 month break clause. Or can I fit both contracts (flat rate and monthly payment) into one?
I’m not a lawyer and so I’m looking for contract templates. LawDepot looks good with this particular contract. It’s an Independent Contractor Agreement. I’ve registered a company though, so do I still count as “Independent”?
On LawDepot I was asked a few questions and a contract was drafted for me to give to a client. I just don’t know whether this is the right contract.
Any recommendations? All help is much appreciated.
