What should be in a private investigator contract and where can you get a good contact?
While I’m not a lawyer, please allow me to suggest your contract should have (among other things) these essentials…
What you are going to do.
How much your client pays.
When your client pays.
What happens if the client doesn’t pay.
Errors and Omissions (setting expectations).
How to resolve disagreements.
Indemnification (limits liability)
Those items aren’t everything. In fact they aren’t even all the big things. So…What do you suggest? Post it below so we can all benefit from your experience.
Where to get a contract.
If I needed a contract, I would look in P.I. Magazine. I would look for some of the advertisers who are in there month after month selling private investigator contracts and paperwork. At least that’s a good place to start.
By the way, if you want more straight talk about our industry don’t miss my special report “If You Want To be a Private Investigator Give Up… Unless You Do These Three Things”. You can get it for free right here…
Committed to your success,
