I found a great caterer and ready to move forward and sign the contract. Our contract outlines the cancellation clause if I cancel but doesn’t say anything about if the caterer cancels. I looked at other proposals I recieved and it was the same thing.
Is this common?
Should I ask the caterer to include it?
What should I draft to include in that section?
I just want to make sure I am covered incase something happens or god forbid the caterer doesn’t show up.
Just a sidenote: I have full faith in my caterer but I want to be legally covered. You never know!

@Mjayy: I would try and write something in. I can’t remember what ours said about the caterer cancelling, but thats something that should be there! Getting your deposit back, maybe giving you a certain days notice?

Technically, you’re already legally covered because her not performing the contract means that you don’t have to perform the contract (paying). The sticky issue is the deposit – so I think you should spell out, to be safe, that the deposit is refundable if she cancels. You would probably get that back, but if she’s a dbag, she might argue that the “work” she did until then justifies the deposit amount. Probably won’t fly, but better to not have to argue against that.
