What are the Important Aspects of a Service Contract?

People sign contracts almost every day, whether signing unknowingly for a social media application or knowingly while buying a new car (like a vehicle service contract) from a dealership. Contracts have become a part of day-to-day life.

Having said that, most of the contracts that people sign are service contracts. A service contract is predominantly signed between a service providing company (such as a cleaning service) and a customer. This contract protects both parties when in need and ensures a healthy business relationship.

What is a service agreement contract?

A service contract (also called extended warranty) is a legally binding document signed between a service provider and a customer (or client). It is an exchange of service for compensation.

Such a contract describes the terms and conditions of the service, such as the description of work, payment terms, rights and obligations of both parties, and more. This contract can be in a verbal format (like a customer visiting a salon for a haircut) or in written format (like a web designer might have with the website owner).

A written contract becomes necessary when the terms of a deal are tricky or need to be explained in detail.

Types of service contracts

There are different types of service contracts with various services and payment structures. Below is a list of the types of professional service contracts that are primarily used:

  • Independent contractor agreements/ contracts
  • Consulting contracts
  • Employment contracts
  • Time and materials contracts
  • Fixed-price contracts
  • Not To Exceed (NTE) contract
  • Retainer based contracts
  • Managed service contracts

What are the benefits of having a service contract?

Signing a service contract minimizes the disagreements and maximizes productivity. Apart from this, there are several other advantages of a service contract, and that is:

  • Cost benefits: A service contract can save a lot of money in routine maintenance and unexpected repair.
  • Product quality: Under the contract, the service providing company/ contractor will be less likely to install or construct a faulty or poor quality product.
  • Resolve disputes: It also outlines the clauses that will help resolve conflicts and disruptions between both parties.
  • Provide assurance: A customer can be stress-free when something goes wrong with the service or product. With a contract in hand, the issue will be resolved by the service provider in a timely manner.

How do you write a service contract?

A contract outlines the duties and level of protection that both parties need. For proper legal protection, it is essential to have a well-vetted service contract that includes terms and conditions as mentioned below:

  • Parties to the contract: A contract starts with this section. It identifies the parties in the contract, i.e., the customer and service provider.
  • Recitals: This section describes the willingness of both parties to enter into the contract.
