What is a Handyman Contract?
When to use a Handyman Contract:
- You're hiring an independent contractor for handyman projects at your home or business.
- You're being hired as a handyman by an individual or business.
Should I write a Handyman Contract for each client that I am hired by?
Even if you are being hired by an acquaintance, it is always recommended that you have them sign a Handyman Contract. You might choose to sign a Handyman Contract because it can present the helpful benefits outlined here:
- Fee-related information is well-defined
- The duration of the project is established
- Roles and responsibilities are understood by everyone
Ultimately, if you opt not to make a Handyman Agreement, neither party will be able to enjoy all of the associated benefits.
How are Handyman Contracts structured?
You should organize the following details:
- Your client's contact information
- What work you will be doing once hired
- What the start and end dates are
- How payment will be made
As you might expect, Handyman Contracts that you make with Rocket Lawyer also include the typical legal language about the non-employment relationship between the handyman and property owner, confidentiality, and lastly, indemnification. In the process of building your agreement, you'll also have the ability to select the jurisdiction under which it will be governed. More personalized editing is possible, as needed.

Would I need to do anything else after I have made my contract for handyman services?
Your Handyman Contract comes with its own list of suggested next steps to take after your document is completed. You also can take any of these actions related to your document: making edits, signing electronically via RocketSign®, downloading it in PDF format or as a Word file, or printing it out. Most importantly, you should make sure to send a copy of your signed contract to the other party.
Where do I have my Handyman Contracts checked out by a lawyer?
If you do it by yourself, getting a lawyer to check your agreement might be time-intensive and relatively expensive. Certain attorneys will not even accept requests to review a contract if they did not write it. If an attorney does decide to provide advice about your document, they would still demand their standard rate for doing it. An easier option would be via the Rocket Lawyer attorney network. By becoming a Premium member, you can get your documents examined by an attorney with business experience. Whether you decide to make Handyman Agreements or other documents for your business, Rocket Lawyer is here to help.
