The acceptance is your signed signature accepting the offer. Next there needs to be consideration. The estimate should note the amount of consideration needed to complete your painting project. The third element is given that both parties are competent. The forth element is acknowledgement that the contact has a legal purpose.

Typical content of a contract include the names of all parties involved including their addresses and contact information. The contact should be dated and should have a description of the property location if different than the home address. The contract should spell out the terms of the contract. Such as, the amount of monies required down and how is the rest of the contract to be paid. Any additional change to the contract should be addressed at that time. Also the contract should mention the expiration and or penalties if either party fails to act.
