I have recently finished a project for a client.
I don't have a countersigned copy of the contract from the agency. This is not ideal but should I be worried? The commercial reality of the situation is obvious from our email exchanges. I am being contracted to perform a piece of work - which I have done - the terms laid out in the contract have been tacitly accepted and are the same as the terms used for the past year and a half or so.
I have a good relationship with the client.
I have been working for this client for almost two years, during which the contract has been extended over half a dozen times. The last extension (which is drawn out by the agency as a new contract) was just for one month. It was stupid not insisting on getting it countersigned but there you go.
A few days ago I emailed the agency to ask if they could now countersign the contract but haven't heard back.
The agency has generally been good, I haven't had any problems with them & want to remain on good terms - it's just about piece of mind.
Is there anything else I should do other than wait for the payment to come through in a few weeks?
