Making an Architect Contract

  • What is an Architect Contract?

    An Architect Contract allows an architect to set forth the terms associated with their relationship with a client. Signing this essential contract can help everyone to avoid disagreements down the road. Different from a generic Architectural Contract template that you might find elsewhere, this contract that is built on Rocket Lawyer comes with the option of Document Defense®, so an attorney can reach out on your behalf if you don't get paid or have another problem.

  • Do architects need to write Architect Contracts each time that they are hired?

    No matter how few hours the work will take, it is critical to capture the details of any commitments to the client in writing. The following benefits may be helpful for you to know:

    • Everyone knows when invoicing will happen
    • The duration of the engagement is agreed upon
    • Roles and responsibilities are understood by everyone

    If you opt not to use an Architect Agreement, neither party will experience any of the aforementioned benefits and protections.

  • How do you structure a contract for architectural services?

    You should prepare the following information for your Architect Contract:

    • The name and address of the client
    • What services will be delivered
    • What the start and end dates are
    • How much you will charge

    This contract from Rocket Lawyer also contains the standard language regarding the independent work relationship between the parties, confidentiality, and finally, liability. As you make your agreement, you also will be able to select which state's laws will govern it. With the document tool, you are able to implement additional modifications, as needed.

  • What would it typically cost for me to create an Architectural Contract?

    The fees associated with working with a traditional attorney can total anywhere between several hundred dollars to thousands. You can draft your own Architectural Contract online for free with Rocket Lawyer. To do so, you can click on the button labeled "Make document." As with any legal document that you sign, you can also request that a lawyer in our nationwide network of attorneys review it.

    If you've got any hesitations about how to move forward, you can always talk to an attorney. Also feel free to browse our larger library of business legal documents.

  • Am I required to do anything else after drafting my Architect Contract?

    Your Architect Contract comes with its own list of helpful tips to follow while finalizing your document. You should feel free to take any of these actions with your document: editing, getting digital signatures with RocketSign®, saving it as a Word document or PDF file, and/or printing it. Finally, your client should get a copy of your final contract.

  • Where can I get my Architect Contracts evaluated by a professional?

    Seeking out a legal professional to provide feedback on your contract may take a long time if you attempt to do it alone. An alternate approach worth consideration is to go through Rocket Lawyer attorney services. Premium members are able to request guidance from an attorney with business experience or send other questions. As a business owner, you can be confident that Rocket Lawyer is here to support you.
