How to Draft a Service Agreement
A service agreement is merely a contract for the purchase of a service, and a good service agreement will keep all parties involved in the transaction legally bound to their responsibilities, as stated in the contract.
This applies to any kind of service agreement, whether the service is the commodity itself (see Consulting Agreement Template), or the service in turn provides you with another service or material good (see Vendor Agreement Template).
As you can see from these samples, service agreements are most often used by
- freelancers, and
- consulting agencies.
Whatever the service, from catering to consulting to security, they will generally detail
- description of the service to be performed—including the where and how, i.e., under what scope and circumstance to be determined as successful;
- the whos of the agreement—who is the contractor, who is the contractee, their names, contact details, and signatures; and
- then whens of the agreement—when the agreement was signed, when the service will be performed, when it will be completed, when the full payment is due.
These free samples come in various formats but will always include these details in some explicit manner.

Note: As with any Legal Agreement Template you can find on Template.net’s archives, there will always be a counter-form to end these agreements. As you use these samples as guidelines to drafting your own service agreements, make sure to also look into drafting a service contract termination, just in case the terms of your agreement were not met.
Naturally, both parties will have to sign this termination agreement for it to be valid. If that doesn’t work out, consider looking into small claims court.
