Everyone knows that before signing a contract, you must carefully read it. But not everyone understands what to look for while reading. But a lot depends on the terms of the contract.
Make a list of all your desires, which should be reflected in the contract. These can be terms and conditions of payment, requirements for quality and service, your rights. Think carefully about what conditions are ideal for you, and where you can make concessions. Write it all down so you don't miss anything later.
Make a list of all the points that should not be in the contract. For example, there should be no undue control over your activities. Look at such agreements and cross out from the text anything that does not suit you. List these phrases.
Review the proposed contract against the prepared lists. Now you know how to analyze the finished text of the contract. Read it twice to be sure nothing is missing. Anything that doesn't suit you, put it on a separate sheet.
Suggest making the changes you want. The time has come for negotiations. Discuss with your partner the possibility of making edits to the text. Say that you are ready to cooperate, but would like to correct some points.
Reexamine the contract. Sign it if it's okay.
