Default The contract

Ok. This might be a really rookie question but id hate to screw it up as it could pose very important one day. The contract. A legal document. Did you guys develop your own or was yours professionally made with a lawyer. If anyone has a copy of what their contract looks like I'd love to see it. What other documents do you use. This is what I figure:

1) proposal
2)the contract
3 change orders

Anyone have any examples or inputs?

i'd have to post my take of AIA 401 in parts, as this site won't allow the massive upload

but yeah, we (et all contractual entities] have though about it

I developed my own. Whichever route you take, have your lawyer give it the once-over. What may seem like common sense to you may get the whole thing thrown out of court.

If its a commercial/industrial job then I'd look into SOW (statement of work) and always have your lawyer review the initial template... then if a client's lawyer makes changes, always have your lawyer review them.

I'd love to see a copy of your invoice and contracts. See how it's put together. Any way of posting how it looks, worded?
