Frank Fistner, president at ArtisTree, has a good list of language you should never include in your contracts. It’s a good thing to pass this along to your sales team for distribution to property managers and HOA boards during bid time.
Fistner’s list includes these vague gems:
- “Custom-blended” fertilizer (details, please?)
- “If deemed necessary” (by whose definition?)
- “occasionally inspected”
At L&L, we support any effort to eliminate fuzzy language. You can read the full list at the ArtisTree blog.
