Look at the Explanatory Notes that are displayed on every contract's description page. You need to scroll down a bit to see them or follow the 'Read Explanatory Notes' link.
The Notes are very detailed, and supplied free to view on all our contracts. The Notes explain what each contract covers, clause by clause, so you can see exactly what you will be getting. TIP: You can also use them to compare the contents of simliar documents.
Remember you can also tailor the documents after purchase, either yourself or with your lawyer's help, and you can order tailoring services from ContractStore as well.
You can use the search box on the top right of the Page – type in a brief description of what you are looking for – and here are some tips:
You need to Register before you can download the free documents. Once you are registered you can easily download the docs into "My Contracts", the same way as when you buy a contract.
You need to be logged in - check your emails for an explanatory message. You then have to find your way to the "My Contracts" page. All documents will stay in there for 42 days after purchase so if you leave it longer than that you may find they have disappeared. If you entered your email address incorrectly this follow-up email will be lost. Contact us if you want help with accessing your documents.
Please do! All our documents are in Microsoft Word format. They are designed to allow you (or your lawyer) to make whatever changes you need to make the right contract to meet your needs.
If you are going to use a single document more than 10 times then you should buy a Multiple Use Licence. This might apply for example, if you want to use an employment contract for twenty employees. One Multiple Use Licence covers the multiple use of up to five different contracts. When you buy any of our contracts you will be asked if you need a Multiple Use Licence.
