I've been having some bother with a client that had signed a contract with me in June for 2 monthly payments for my social media services but since then they've only paid half the first payment and have given me numerous start dates that they never stick to. When a client gives me a start date I have to schedule them in and when they don't actually get started on that date it leaves me losing money. The client tells me they will pay the second half of the first payment but they never actually do it and only occasionally respond to my emails or phone calls. On the contract that they signed and returned on 27th June it says the following: Payment Terms First payment is due before start of project. This is a TWO (2) Month minimum contract. Monthly Fees are due on the 27th day of each month. Acceptance of Project Proposal and Terms If proposal and terms of service are acceptable, please sign this acceptance and return with your first payment. I, **CLIENT NAME** of **CLIENT COMPANY** agree to the project proposal and terms as defined above and in the attached schedules. I authorise **MY COMPANY** to proceed with the social media package project on our behalf and confirm this agreement by submitting our first payment. Then it is signed and dated (27/06/12) by the director of the client company. If someone here knows about contracts and would be willing to take a look at the contract to determine whether I'd be able to take legal action if necessary I'd appreciate it!
