What are Interior Design Terms and Conditions?
Interior Design Terms and Conditions form a contract which sets out your agreement to provide interior design services to a client. This includes all of the important stuff – scope. fees, payment, dispute resolution, termination and limitation of liability. It also covers Intellectual Property rights for your work.
Other names for this document include a Client Agreement, Services Agreement or Interior Design Contract.
It’s important to have a contract which is tailored to your industry, the unique services you provide and your way of doing business. Luckily, we have worked with a number of Interior Designers across Australia!
What You Get
Do I need a contract?
Yes, we recommend you always have a contract signed before you start a new interior design job for a client. A contract will help both sides to understand the terms of your agreement in black and white.
