    Does this site have any information on drawing up contracts, or contract templates that can be modified? I've never had the need to use one in the past, but I think it's best for my next job. I have no idea what info/terms and conditions etc it should include.

    Any quick help would be appreciated!

    Hey Will,

    Sorry mate, just been visiting family for a few days and just back so sorry for not responding sooner :)

    I have used a couple of contracts in my time, one from the PCG for longer-term work and one from Click Docs for web site building and hosting. The Click docs ones allow you too samples with a blue strip over them, if you are half computer savvy you will work out how you can rip this and slap it in a word document to see what it all days before buying ;)

    There is some stuff here: Contracts and schedules :: Freelance UK. Don't forget to cover copyright somewhere, if you create something are you handing ownership and IP over to the client or is any part retained by you?

    Make sure you interview the client fully before you start and agree what's expected from who and when. Then if they deviate from that you can say "hey you didn't sign off the first stage by the agreed date, therefore it'll be x days late"

    Make a record at every meeting or involved telephone conversation of any further points agreed and email them confirmation of the points agreed, again to back you up if you need evidence of something later.

    It may all sound pedantic, but if it means you can acurately bill for every client amend they may have expected for free until your T&C said otherwise, it'll make more of a decent profit for you.
