The Contract is dated January 23, 2023.


1.1 Project.

1.2 Schedule. The Coach will begin work on February 1, 2023 and will continue until the work is completed. This Contract can be ended by either Client or Coach at any time, pursuant to the terms of Section 4, Term and Termination.

3.2 Authority To Sign. Each party promises to the other party that it has the authority to enter into this Contract and to perform all of its obligations under this Contract.

3.3 Coach Has Right To Give Client Work Product. The Coach promises that it owns the work product, that the Coach is able to give the work product to the Client, and that no other party will claim that it owns the work product. If the Coach uses employees or subcontractors, the Coach also promises that these employees and subcontractors have signed contracts with the Coach giving the Coach any rights that the employees or subcontractors have related to the Coach's background IP and work product.

3.4 Coach Will Comply With Laws. The Coach promises that the manner it does this job, its work product, and any background IP it uses comply with applicable U.S. and foreign laws and regulations.

3.5 Work Product Does Not Infringe. The Coach promises that its work product does not and will not infringe on someone else's intellectual property rights, that the Coach has the right to let the Client use the background IP, and that this Contract does not and will not violate any contract that the Coach has entered into or will enter into with someone else.

6.1 Overview. This Contract imposes special restrictions on how the Client and the Coach must handle confidential information. These obligations are explained in this section.

6.2 The Client's Confidential Information. While working for the Client, the Coach may come across, or be given, Client information that is confidential. This is information like customer lists, business strategies, research & development notes, statistics about a website, and other information that is private. The Coach promises to treat this information as if it is the Coach's own confidential information. The Coach may use this information to do its job under this Contract, but not for anything else. For example, if the Client lets the Coach use a customer list to send out a newsletter, the Coach cannot use those email addresses for any other purpose. The one exception to this is if the Client gives the Coach written permission to use the information for another purpose, the Coach may use the information for that purpose, as well. When this Contract ends, the Coach must give back or destroy all confidential information, and confirm that it has done so. The Coach promises that it will not share confidential information with a third party, unless the Client gives the Coach written permission first. The Coach must continue to follow these obligations, even after the Contract ends. The Coach's responsibilities only stop if the Coach can show any of the following: (i) that the information was already public when the Coach came across it; (ii) the information became public after the Coach came across it, but not because of anything the Coach did or didn't do; (iii) the Coach already knew the information when the Coach came across it and the Coach didn't have any obligation to keep it secret; (iv) a third party provided the Coach with the information without requiring that the Coach keep it a secret; or (v) the Coach created the information on its own, without using anything belonging to the Client.

6.3 Third-Party Confidential Information. It's possible the Client and the Coach each have access to confidential information that belongs to third parties. The Client and the Coach each promise that it will not share with the other party confidential information that belongs to third parties, unless it is allowed to do so. If the Client or the Coach is allowed to share confidential information with the other party and does so, the sharing party promises to tell the other party in writing of any special restrictions regarding that information.


Neither party is liable for breach-of-contract damages that the breaching party could not reasonably have foreseen when it entered this Contract.


8.1 Overview. This section transfers certain risks between the parties if a third party sues or goes after the Client or the Coach or both. For example, if the Client gets sued for something that the Coach did, then the Coach may promise to come to the Client's defense or to reimburse the Client for any losses.

8.2 Client Indemnity. In this Contract, the Coach agrees to indemnify the Client (and its affiliates and their directors, officers, employees, and agents) from and against all liabilities, losses, damages, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees) related to a third-party claim or proceeding arising out of: (i) the work the Coach has done under this Contract; (ii) a breach by the Coach of its obligations under this Contract; or (iii) a breach by the Coach of the promises it is making in Section 3 (Representations).

8.3 Coach Indemnity. In this Contract, the Client agrees to indemnify the Coach (and its affiliates and their directors, officers, employees, and agents) from and against liabilities, losses, damages, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees) related to a third-party claim or proceeding arising out of a breach by the Client of its obligations under this Contract.


9.1 Assignment​. This Contract applies only to the Client and the Coach. Neither the Client nor the Coach can assign its rights or delegate its obligations under this Contract to a third-party (other than by will or intestate), without first receiving the other's written permission.

9.2 Arbitration. As the exclusive means of initiating adversarial proceedings to resolve any dispute arising under this Contract, a party may demand that the dispute be resolved by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association in accordance with its commercial arbitration rules.

9.3 Modification; Waiver. To change anything in this Contract, the Client and the Coach must agree to that change in writing and sign a document showing their contract. Neither party can waive its rights under this Contract or release the other party from its obligations under this Contract, unless the waiving party acknowledges it is doing so in writing and signs a document that says so.

9.4. Noticies.

(a) Over the course of this Contract, one party may need to send a notice to the other party. For the notice to be valid, it must be in writing and delivered in one of the following ways: personal delivery, email, or certified or registered mail (postage prepaid, return receipt requested). The notice must be delivered to the party's address listed at the end of this Contract or to another address that the party has provided in writing as an appropriate address to receive notice.

(b) The timing of when a notice is received can be very important. To avoid confusion, a valid notice is considered received as follows: (i) if delivered personally, it is considered received immediately; (ii) if delivered by email, it is considered received upon acknowledgement of receipt; (iii) if delivered by registered or certified mail (postage prepaid, return receipt requested), it is considered received upon receipt as indicated by the date on the signed receipt. If a party refuses to accept notice or if notice cannot be delivered because of a change in address for which no notice was given, then it is considered received when the notice is rejected or unable to be delivered. If the notice is received after 5:00pm on a business day at the location specified in the address for that party, or on a day that is not a business day, then the notice is considered received at 9:00am on the next business day.

9.5 Severability. This section deals with what happens if a portion of the Contract is found to be unenforceable. If that's the case, the unenforceable portion will be changed to the minimum extent necessary to make it enforceable, unless that change is not permitted by law, in which case the portion will be disregarded. If any portion of the Contract is changed or disregarded because it is unenforceable, the rest of the Contract is still enforceable.

9.6 Signatures. The Client and the Coach must sign this document using Bonsai's e-signing system. These electronic signatures count as originals for all purposes.

9.7 Governing Law. The validity, interpretation, construction and performance of this document shall be governed by the laws of the United States of America.

9.8 Entire Contract. This Contract represents the parties' final and complete understanding of this job and the subject matter discussed in this Contract. This Contract supersedes all other contracts (both written and oral) between the parties.

What Is a Home Remodel Contract?

Home remodeling contracts are legal documents that are drafted during the reconstruction stage of a damaged structure. The document will contain all the details of the project such as the name of the parties involved, the legal fees, the timeline, etc.

Why Need a Home Remodeling Contract Template?

As a remodeling contractor, you will frequently have to draft a contract at the customer's request. Writing the contract yourself every time can be time-consuming, which is why a home remodeling contract template may prove very efficient.

There are various platforms such as Bonsai where you can get the template, as well as some samples that are completely free of charge.

Who Uses Home Remodeling Contracts?

Home remodeling contracts may be used by a variety of people, including:

  • Architects and designers
  • Builders
  • Freelancers that want to start a renovation business
  • Subcontractors working for remodeling companies
  • Remodeling contractors

Whenever a type of construction is due, the remodeling contractor has to draft a document that reflects the scope of the work. This will ensure that all the legal aspects are covered.

What Should You Add in a Remodeling Contract Template?

There are several things that you should add to a remodeling contract, including:

  • Brief description of your project
  • The address and name of your client
  • The tasks you need to perform once you start offering your contractor's services
  • List of materials and labor used
  • Whether it's going to last for a specific amount of time or it's an ongoing process
  • Payment terms such as cost, due date(s), and method of payment (i.e., cash, digital transfers such as Bonsai).
  • The process to be followed for changes (if there are any)
  • Dates for the project
  • Escape hatch from the legal and binding contract, if needed (i.e., violations, etc.)
  • Reasonable safety precautions that need to be followed

A home remodeling contract template will often tell you what you need to add to the document. You may also use an online sample to see exactly what your remodeling agreement should look like.

How to Write a Home Remodeling Contract

Home remodeling contracts have a certain pattern that you need to respect. If you are in charge of someone's home remodeling, there are some steps that you should take when writing the document. These are:

Discuss with the Homeowner

When you make a remodeling contract, you first need to discuss matters with the homeowner. What exactly are their goals? Do they have any particular ideas that they want to bring to life?

Also, what are your plans for the area or room? Before you draw the contract and overstep your boundaries, you need to discuss these specifications first.

List the Necessary Supplies and Resources

Now that you have a good idea of what you should do, you need to gather your supplies. List out the tools, materials, or other pieces of materials that you require to finish your project.

When you are making a list of the resources, don't forget to add the labor on the legal document. This way, the client will be able to come up with a budget.

Include the Payment Information

Whether you are working alone or have other workers assisting you, you need to put together a payment schedule. Decide on how you want to get paid for your remodeling services. Should it be by the end of the project, or do you want to get several payments over a specific timeframe?

Remember that depending on the circumstances, you may need your client to pay some money upfront so that you can get the supplies. Payment on the completion date only works if you can get the resources without paying for them beforehand.

Gather the Details

Last but not least, you have to gather some essential information from the parties that were involved. Start with the name and address of your client, as well as other relevant details.

Next, you should add your name to the contract and the names of other parties involved. Make sure to add the contact details as well, so that the client knows exactly who to call in case of an emergency.


Home remodeling can bring several questions to light. Here are the most common ones asked by homeowners, along with their answers.

Is There a Difference between a Renovation Contract and a Remodeling Contract?

Both legal documents represent a type of home improvement contract. However, while renovation contract templates typically deals with restoring an object to its original state, remodeling involves certain alterations to the original structure.

Can I Get a Free Remodeling Contract Template?

Yes, there are several places where you can get a remodeling contract template for free. One example is Bonsai, where you can download a customizable document each time you have a contract to draw.

How Long Does a Remodel Usually Take?

The timeline of the remodeling process will depend mostly on the scope of the work. When drafting the home remodeling contract, the contractor will list down the services and set an estimated deadline. As an example, kitchen remodeling can take anything from three weeks to two months.

Should I Get an Attorney to Review the Entire Agreement?

Yes, you should call your attorney to review your home remodeling contract. This way, if any clauses might not be in your favor, your lawyer can help you with a dispute resolution.

Should My Contractor Charge Me Upfront for My Construction Contract?

Yes, it's normal for you to be charged upfront, after drafting the construction contract. Both the contractor and the people working for them will need the payment for labor and for materials, which is why you shouldn't be surprised if they ask for 15%-20% of the final costs upfront.

The Bottom Line

Home remodeling contracts may seem daunting, but as long as you have a good template to work with, there should be no issues. Whether you get it from Bonsai or draft the whole document yourself, make sure that you add as many details as possible. This will ensure that you respect the applicable law and that you are spared potential disputes.
