Vendor Agreement FAQs

  • Should event organizers always use Vendor Agreements?

    Even if the event is informal, it is important to capture in writing the details of any agreements that you make with vendors. These benefits may help to persuade you:

    • Roles and responsibilities are understood by all
    • There are no surprises about the terms of the agreement
    • Fee-related information is well-defined

    In the end, if you opt not to make a Vendor Contract, you might not be able to experience any of the protections connected to having one in place.

  • How are Vendor Agreements structured?

    Specific details that you may want to include are:

    • Each party's contact information
    • What fees will be charged and when
    • What the start and end dates are
    • Hours of operation

    This contract made on Rocket Lawyer also contains the typical legalese regarding insurance, indemnity, force majeure, and finally, the method(s) of dispute resolution. During the process of building your contract, you'll also have the ability to determine which state's jurisdiction it falls under. With the document tool, you have the power to add more custom editing, as needed.

  • How can I fill out custom vendor contract templates for free?

    Rocket Lawyer document templates are vetted with care by lawyers and legal staff, which means that regardless of your legal background, you are able to rest assured and use them to handle legal matters with confidence. To begin, just tell us a bit more about the engagement in a step-by-step interview process, and we'll generate your custom agreement in no time. After making your Vendor Contract, it is encouraged that you have an attorney in our Rocket Lawyer attorney network review it. This route, in most cases, will end up being much less expensive than hiring your average lawyer at a cost totaling hundreds of dollars or more, if your matter is complex.

    If you have any doubts or hesitations about how to move forward, ask a lawyer, or browse the other business documents in our library.

  • Will I have to take additional actions next after making my Vendor Agreement?

    Attached to each Vendor Agreement, there will be a list of instructions on what's next after the document is finished. As a Rocket Lawyer member, you can make edits, save it in Word or PDF format, print it out, make a copy, and sign it online via RocketSign®. Most importantly, you should be sure to send a final copy of your fully executed agreement to the other signer(s).

  • Should I have my Vendor Agreement checked out by a professional?

    Depending on who is asked, some attorneys will not even accept requests to review a contract that they did not author. A better approach to consider is to get help via Rocket Lawyer attorney services. By signing up for a Premium membership, you have the ability to ask for advice from an Rocket Lawyer network attorney with business experience or ask other legal questions related to your Vendor Contract.
