Do you put an end date in your contract?
A little background is that I do break/fix and often have clients that have multiple projects. As such I have found it easy to have a contract that lays out the service I provide as well as how much I charge and the various other details (legal stuff) such that a client can email me about a new project and I can respond and agree and we can get started. BUT, this leaves me needing to have a conversation with each client if I need to change the terms. I have seen other people that will do this type of service contract for a given period of time, lets say a year, and at the end of the year a new contract is needed to move forward as thus any terms can be more easily updated. Either way you have to have a conversation about terms, but I just want to hear what other people are doing. Sometimes I have a client and it goes poorly and we go our separate ways and I would rather the contract expires than have to formally send them a termination agreement. Thanks!
