Making a Housekeeping Agreement

  • What is a Housekeeping Agreement?

    If you are a housekeeper, you can make and sign Housekeeping Agreements in order to protect yourself when you are planning to provide housekeeping to clients. With signatures from both the client and the housekeeper, this document helps each party to set expectations. Different from the blank templates that you might discover on another website, each Housekeeping Contract that is built on Rocket Lawyer comes with the option of Document Defense®, so an attorney can review the situation and take action if you need to demand payment or face any other problem.

  • Why is it necessary to write a House Cleaning Contract?

    Regardless of whether your housekeeping business is new or many years old, it is always crucial to get the details of your work in writing. These benefits may help to persuade you:

    • There is no confusion about the payment schedule
    • Neither party is surprised by how long the engagement lasts
    • Roles and responsibilities are understood by all

    If you don't have a Housekeeping Contract, you and/or your client may suffer these unwanted repercussions: not being paid on time, unmet standards of quality, unrealistic expectations, delayed delivery, and, not to mention, limited ability to demand a remedy if something goes wrong.

  • What should be included in contracts for house cleaning services?

    To complete your Housekeeping Agreement with Rocket Lawyer, you'll need to have the following details:

    • Your client's contact information
    • What tasks you are committed to performing
    • What the duration of the engagement is
    • What fees will be charged and when

    As usual, the contract will also contain typical legal language about the independent work relationship between the parties, the protection of confidential information, liability, and finally, dispute resolution methods. When you build your contract, you'll also have the ability to pick which state's jurisdiction it falls under. With the document tool, you have the ability to implement additional adjustments and edits, if needed.

  • What might I usually pay for an attorney to make a housekeeping contract template for me?

    Fortunately, you will not have to pay an expensive lawyer to put your contract in writing. When using Rocket Lawyer, any house cleaner should feel empowered to produce a Housekeeping Agreement for free today. Your document will be built section by section, as you answer simple questions to enter information along the way. Simply tap or click the "Make document" button above to begin.

    If you have any questions or concerns before getting started, you can ask an attorney today. You should also feel free to check out more business legal documents in our library.

  • Am I required to do anything else once I draft my Housekeeping Agreement?

    Each Housekeeping Agreement has a set of instructions on what comes next after your document is completed. Feel free to try any or all of the following actions with your contract: editing, signing electronically with RocketSign®, downloading it as a Word or PDF document, and printing it. Most importantly, as a best practice, you should give a copy of the fully signed agreement to the client.

  • Can my Housekeeping Contract be evaluated by a lawyer before I sign?

    Seeking out a lawyer to comment on your contract may take longer than you'd think if you do it alone. Another approach worth consideration is to request help from attorney services at Rocket Lawyer. Rocket Lawyer members can ask for guidance from an experienced attorney or send additional legal questions. As a business owner, you can work confidently knowing that Rocket Lawyer is by your side.
