Florida Restoration Contract Package

$895.00

Are you ready to reap the rewards of the lucrative restoration business in the great state of Florida?  This robust contract package addresses all of the terms and disclosures required by Florida law, and includes important instructions to address common contractor pitfalls.  These forms demystify the differences between requirements for residential and commercial contracts.  These easy-to-use forms are adaptable for many different contracting scenarios, and can be used for everything from carpet cleaning to remediation to significant reconstruction projects.  The contract is broken up in to a series of one-page forms, rather than a single document that spills over onto multiple pages.  This exclusive set consists of:

  • Service Agreement:  More than just a “Work Authorization,” this is an actual contract that requires the customer to pay and outlines the scope of work and other vital terms.  Do not call it a “Work Authorization.”  Always call it a “contract”!
  • Terms and Conditions: Includes the payment terms required by Florida law, as well as important disclaimers and releases.
  • Assignment of Benefits (AOB) and Direction of Pay: A cutting-edge, updated legal document transferring legal title to insurance proceeds over to the contractor, and directing the insurance company to make payment solely to the contractor.
  • Tender of Assignment to Insurance Company: Form letter placing insurance company on formal notice of the customer's assignment of insurance proceeds and direction of pay, for submission with the Assignment of Benefits.  
  • Notice of the Right of Cancellation:  Special language required by Florida law for consumer contracts.
