Right after a couple of clients taking the piss with changes and amendments etc, I've decided that I'm going to right my own terms document and make sure that every new client agrees to it before I start work.
Why don't you all get your heads together and come up with some water tight T&C's and then post them up on the forum for others to use, people ask this question all the time, just a thought :icon_wink:
Helen, I’m just about to start on my Terms & Conditions and have been looking at yours amongst others and was just wondering, if you quote a client for a job say by email - how do you make them accept the T&Cs?
(I’m not very legally minded!).
I’ll stick a link to mine up here when they’re done.
By accepting the quote, they are also accepting the t&c's (I send both together and reference them in the email to ensure they read them and know they will be accepting them if they reply to the quote) :icon_smile:
The basis behind my work is:
Client's website hosting
I am currently working with the Terms & Conditions of Services (Business to Business/Consumer) but not entirely sure whether these are the right one's to be using? If anyone has used this site before it would be a great help. I had also looked at Helen's Terms and Conditions (Although no site is there now to revisit) but as everyone else I haven't had time to collaborate on this subject either.
Our T&Cs are emailed to the client along with a proposal of work. The client then has to print the proposal, sign and return it along with 50% payment before we start work. Alternatively they can pay by BACS and send an email stating they accept our T&Cs and we'll attach that to a printed copy of their proposal.
