What is a Repair Contract?

A Repair Contract is a commonly used agreement that is set up to enable repair technicians to outline the terms and conditions under which repair services will be provided. With signatures from both the client and the repair technician, this document helps each party to set reasonable expectations and limit conflicts. Different from the blank PDF templates that you might download elsewhere, each Repair Agreement that is built on Rocket Lawyer comes with the option of Document Defense®, so an On Call attorney can reach out on your behalf if you need to demand payment or face another problem.

When to use a Repair Contract:

  • You are an independent contractor who has been hired to perform home repairs.
  • You require repairs to your home and would like to formalize the Contract with your independent contractor.
