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.

A home renovation contract template will help you draft a construction contract. The home remodeling contract template should be clear, concise, and accurately reflects the expectations of all the parties involved. 

Whether your goal is to protect yourself from potential legal issues or reduce the time spent on contract negotiations, having a construction contract template will save you time and hassle. 

We have listed five parts you should pay attention to in the home remodeling contract template.

Let's find out!

What is a Home Renovation Contract?

A home remodeling contract is a legal document that details the work for renovations of a home. The entire agreement includes an outline of the work to be performed, a cost estimate, and a schedule for completion. 

The contract is a legal and binding contract between contractors and homeowners.

Why do you need a construction contract?

A construction contract can provide legal certainty and protect both the contractor and the homeowner or tenant.

This document details how work will be conducted, including who is responsible for which aspects of the job, what kind of materials, when contractors must meet deadlines, and how both parties will resolve any disputes.

A completed construction contract can also help prevent misunderstandings that could lead to litigation.

Elements Of A Great Remodeling Contract

A remodeling contract should include several key elements of any great remodeling contract. These include: specifying the builder's scope of work, ensuring correct measurements were taken during the permitting process, creating a timeline for completion, providing accurate cost estimates, and ensuring all parties are on board with the proposed changes.

It's also essential to ensure that all contracts are fully executed and documented so there is no confusion or ambiguity.

Both the contractor and the client's business information

A contractor must have up-to-date business information to complete the renovation project successfully. Such as the client's name, address, and contact info (email, phone). 

Additionally, it is crucial to protect yourself legally during any work process by having appropriate insurance coverage in place.

It's also advisable to notify all utility companies of any planned changes so that problems don't arise down the line. Lastly, ensure you obtain all necessary licensing and registration requirements before starting any remodeling or construction work.

Payment schedule

When writing a construction contract, you should outline the payments required for each contractor and the completion date. 

It is also important to have payment terms that are realistic and fair. Furthermore, you must update your client on progress to be happy with the finished product.

And finally, make sure all invoices and contract documents are available for review in case any disputes arise.

Scope of work

A contract will protect both the contractor and the client from any misunderstandings or surprises down the line. 

Ensure all the information about a project is accurate so there are no delays or problems.

Also, set a timeline for completion so everyone knows when everything is supposed to be ready. And lastly, ensure that all payments and terms of the contract are clearly defined from start to finish - this way, there will be no disputes later on!

Due Dates For Delivery

Be realistic with your estimates so that everyone involved, subcontractors or suppliers included- remains happy at the end of the day. Remember, deadlines are essential for smooth remodeling projects!

The Five Parts of a Home Renovation Contract

The contract should be clear about who is responsible for what, from the contractor's services, subcontractor, and suppliers to clients.

A contract includes both the client and the contractor agreeing to specific terms. One of those terms is that the contractor agrees to give warranties to the client.

The warranty means that the contractor commits to do a specific job or perform a service in a certain way to meet homeowner standards.

And, of course, ensure that all parties understand and agree to the terms before the construction project starts. Here are five parts you need to review in detail on the remodeling home contract:

1. Drawings and Specifications

One way to know the progress of a project is to use drawings, specifications, or other documents to detail what the project is supposed to look like. The documents make it easier for everyone involved in the project to understand.

It will be helpful to have the authorization to proceed with the work signed off on by both parties at every stage, so there are no misunderstandings or delays.

2. Schedule of Work

The subcontractor you hire follows the agreed-upon schedule of work. To ensure this happens, make sure to ask for a written notice that is detailed and specific. Furthermore, be vigilant in monitoring the subcontractor's or suppliers' work and ensuring that they follow the schedule set out in the contract.

If there are any issues with them, take appropriate measures such as terminating their subcontractor's services or filing a complaint with your state licensing board. 

When everything has been completed according to plan, make sure you sign off on all documents before handing over the project completion certificate to your client/clients. 

3. Labor and Installation

Keeping a close eye on the renovation's progress is crucial to prevent delays. Make sure you have all your communication channels open so that you are always up-to-date with what's happening, from confirming subcontractor qualifications to specifying the number of workers required. 

4. Materials and Supplies

Regarding materials and supplies, make sure that the home improvement contract is clear about what will be required for the project. 

Specify which type of insulation, paint, flooring, Etc. You are planning to use it, so there's no confusion or disputes later. 

Also, make sure you account for the final cost of these items in your remodeling contract, this way, you won't have any surprises when it comes time to ask for the payment from the client.

And finally, take note of warranty conditions so that contractors can easily and quickly sort out any equipment or materials problems.

5. Termination of contract

If things go wrong or the relationship between homeowner and contractor doesn't work out, it is essential to have a termination clause in place. 

The termination clause will help you move on with your business as smoothly as possible while taking care of any financial obligations you may have incurred. 

When contracting for renovation work, always give written notice of what has been done and the payment schedule for said work. 

If a dispute arises, both parties should pursue mediation or arbitration as dispute resolution instead of court.

Promote a template to make it easier

Nobody likes a renovation project that's fraught with complications. That's why getting a contract template for home renovations is essential. 

Contractors and clients are looking for a remodeling contract template that could help them protect each of their rights.


Renovations can be much work; if done incorrectly, they can lead to costly damages. So, it's essential to have all the right insurance before starting the project. 

Make sure everyone involved in the renovation work stays safe by being aware of all known and potential hazards and taking reasonable safety precautions.

Put the insurance topic in the home remodeling contract template and on the final home remodeling contract.


Home renovation contracts can be complex and daunting, but with the help of a template and the right advice, the process can be much easier. 

Understanding the different elements of a remodeling contract helps you achieve a successful home remodeling project.
