Making a Maintenance Contract

  • What is a Maintenance Contract?

    The purpose of making a Maintenance Contract is to lay out the terms and conditions associated with work being done. By accepting this agreement, you and the other signer are more likely to hold the same set of expectations. When you build your Maintenance Contract on Rocket Lawyer, you may opt to access Document Defense®, which allows a lawyer to help you demand payment or otherwise enforce your legal rights.

  • Why do maintenance providers use Maintenance Agreements?

    Even if this is your first time being hired as a maintenance contractor, it is important to get the details of your work in writing. Signing this document most likely will be helpful for your business due to this list of benefits:

    • Both parties know what they are responsible for
    • Payment-related information is clearly defined
    • Neither party is surprised by how long the engagement lasts

    Any maintenance provider opting not to use a Maintenance Agreement should expect common issues like questions about timing and the miscommunication of requirements.

  • What details should I include in a Maintenance Contract?

    Specifics to cover are:

    • The client's full name and home/business address
    • What work you will be doing once hired
    • What the duration of the engagement is
    • What fees will be charged and when

    As usual, the document will also include standard legal language regarding the non-employer relationship between the maintenance provider and client, reimbursement for losses, and dispute resolution. In the process of building your agreement, you'll also have the ability to decide the jurisdiction under which it will be governed. More custom editing is permitted, as needed.

  • How can I fill out a maintenance contract template for free?

    Fortunately, you do not need to start from scratch when putting your contract in writing. When using Rocket Lawyer, you can produce Maintenance Contracts online with relative ease. Your agreement is assembled step by step, as you enter more details. Typically, given the level of customization, you might end up paying a conventional attorney a few hundred dollars, if not more, in fees.

    If you have any particular doubts or hesitations before getting started, you can always ask a lawyer. Also feel free to check out more business legal documents in our library.

  • Would I have to take additional actions next after creating my contract for maintenance?

    Attached to your Maintenance Contract, there's a set of instructions that you will need to finalize your document. As a Rocket Lawyer member, you will be able to make edits, add signatures with RocketSign®, download it in PDF format or as a Word document, make copies, and print it out when needed. Most importantly, your client should get copies of your final contract.

  • Can my Maintenance Contract be looked at by a lawyer?

    If you do it by yourself, getting a legal professional to comment on your Maintenance Contract can be relatively time-intensive. Certain attorneys will not even accept requests to review a contract if they didn't work on it. If an attorney does decide to help, they most likely would still demand their standard rate for doing so. An easier way to get a second pair of eyes on your contract is through the Rocket Lawyer On Call® attorney network. As a Premium member, you can get your documents reviewed or ask any legal questions. Whether you decide to produce more copies of your Maintenance Agreement or other agreements for maintenance providers, Rocket Lawyer will be here for you.
