Who can use this Web Design Agreement?
This website design agreement is intended for use by a website designer who is commissioned to design and develop a website for a client.
What are the main issues?
Scope of work. Be sure to detail precisely what the client will get for their money. All too often this can be an area of disagreement. Sometimes an agreement can usefully set out the basic services and a list of extra services which are not covered by the basic price.
Also, have an approval system so that once an aspect of the work is approved, the client signs off on it and if they later want it changed, that means a variation and an extra charge.
Price and payment. Since this project will take time and involve interaction with the client, have some stage payments e.g. 30% up front, 30% after a month and the balance when the basic design service is completed.
Delivery dates. Try to avoid committing to fixed dates and, instead, give estimates without any guarantees. Web design often takes longer than both sides would like, and the reason for the delay can be with the client as much as the designer.
What detailed terms does the Agreement contain?
There is a one page Form of Agreement, 4 pages of Terms & Conditions and Schedules which will set out details of the work to be done and the detailed payment terms.
The main points cover:
- definitions & interpretation
- services of the website designer
- client responsibilities
- delivery & completion
- fees and payment
- intellectual property
- force majeure
- law and disputes
- a general clause detailing the scope of the agreement, waiver and severability
