Wow That didn't make much since!?

I'm looking a breech of contract form for when customer gives the go ahead. Then when we show up and they decied to not go thru with the work for what ever excuse they have. It's only happened a few times, but we keep taking the grunt of it.

So just looking for something to modify to are needs, so we stoptaking it in the shorts.

You don't need a form..... you need 1. a contract and 2. a lawyer.

If your standard contract was written by, or at least modified by an attorney in your area it should include a non-performance clause. That will help you keep at least your outlay on materials and you can charge that against their deposit. It sounds like you need a lawyer to at least look at the forms you lay on the kitchen table with the customer if you are having issues like that.

Maybe you can take this form and adapt it to fit your needs.It's the sellers right to recind,which sould be included with the original contract.
Just add the stipulations for not cancelling on time.
But get an attornry to give you all the facts about it's inclusion in your original contract and it's legality.

The three day right of recission law in Illinois has both hurt and helped me. It hurts when the clients get cold feet (a.k.a. buyers remorse) and go with a hack instead.
I almost feel bad for them because I know they are going to get nickeled and dimed to death for the things the hacks didn't have the experience to notice.

Wow, I took it hard on that one guys!

Sorry, didn't know I was going to take it so hard for some bad grammer. I do admit spelling is not strong point for me.

Any way we do have a contract that states after the 3 days of right of desicion that the down payment is non-refunable. Unless they send a written notice with-in the three days. It is also written in the legal speech but I'm not going to type all that.

Yes, we also have a good lawyer, but he mentioned having a formal letter to send out, as a reminder of that clause, would be good to have.
We can pay him to write one up, but I figured to give it a shot first and just have him give it a ok.

Hope that is better for you guys, I slowed down for this one.
But I'm sure someone will still bust my Sack.

You have a bigger heart than I. I think the hacks end up getting exactly what they are after.

Watch out! The grammar police are on the prowl. I agree you guys are vicious. I did not realize all the english teachers that came on this site.
