Write or type up the date on the agreement to establish an effective date. List the parties involved in the agreement, using full business or individual names and titles. For example, you may title your business as the "Service Provider" and the customer as "Customer."
Define the Scope of the Work - The terms constitute the body of the contract. Start off by clearly defining what it is the scope of the work or service you are to provide, and the timeline you propose to complete the work. Be specific. Don't simply say you will renovate a client's kitchen. Provide details of the cabinet designs, countertops, and other materials and work you will provide. If applicable, give a timeframe for each phase of a project.
