About this document

If you are in the business of cleaning windows, you may come across two problems that can be resolved by using a good client contract.

The first is that the client may hold you responsible for something that is not your fault – something like scratching the glass, when in fact the glass before was so dirty that the scratches weren’t visible. Limitation of your liability features highly in the document.

The second is that it might be difficult to get the client to pay you. He or she might argue that you did more than was agreed (and therefore you should be paid less) or that the quality of your work doesn’t merit payment of the full amount. We include a number of different payment options for you to choose from.

This contract gives you legal protection that you otherwise wouldn’t have without it. It is straightforward and written in plain English so that you can edit it to fit your business perfectly, and so that clients understand it and are happy to sign without delay. It is as short as possible.

It has other advantages as well. It can be used for one off jobs, or for recurring work with the same client. You can reuse the same edited terms for different clients, adding a new specification as necessary at the back of the document.

Your clients could be other businesses, or private individuals at home. If the latter, then the document helps you to comply with the Consumer Contracts (ICAC) 2013 Regulations.

It can be used whether you are a sole-trader or working through your own private limited company.

It is assumed that the work will be basic window cleaning, whether with leathers and bucket or modern equipment.
