Covid-19 Postponement & Cancellation Clause

One thing to consider right now is adding a "Covid-19" clause to your new contracts that clients will sign over the next year. Because Coronavirus is a "known" cause, it’s unlikely to fall under Force Majeure for new contracts signed because it’s not "unforeseeable" or "unpredictable".  Moreover, as government orders start getting lifted, clients will be left having to make the decision whether to continue to host their event/wedding with the continuance of a health risk to their guests (it will also vary greatly depending on the location of the event).  Thus, it is best to explicitly lay out what your business's policies are regarding Covid-19, the ability to reschedule (and number of times you will allow a reschedule with or without a fee), and the refundability or non-refundability of the retainer.  This clause features the ability to reschedule with a proper "x" days notice, rescheduling without a fee for "x" amount of months, the responsibility of the client to work with your business to find a new rescheduled date available on your calendar, the potential increase in pricing for prime dates in 2021 (depending on your business practices), and the forfeit of the retainer in the event of pure cancellation.

The Legal Paige worked with 5 industry pros to draft this template clause and it includes everything you’ll need to be protected when clients need to reschedule or cancel due to Covid.  Remember, you can always negotiate this clause with each client depending on the situation and modify it so your clients also feel good and secure about booking you.  And, this clause is only needed in contracts where your clients want more specificity surrounding Covid-19 reschedulings and cancellations.  Otherwise, you can still use your general rescheduling and cancellation policies.

WHAT'S INCLUDED

One (1) Covid-19 Postponement and Cancellation Clause (with options and comments on the side regarding how to modify for each client situation, differing payment plans, and more).

COMPLETELY TOOK THE WORRY OUT OF HOW TO SEND A LEGAL CONTRACT.

MY CLIENTS HAVE REMARKED HOW EASY IT IS TO READ THROUGH AND UNDERSTAND.

"Paige has a way to take out the confusing and make a contract actually make sense. She makes it so easy to understand where to put in all your personal info and how to add in those extra important clauses to beef up an existing contract.
