    Who uses their own contract language and who uses the property manager's language for your contracts? Just received bid specs for several apartment complexes and it included contracts that is way beyond anything I have seen from this company(or anyone else) in years past.

    These are catch 22 contracts ,if you want the job you need to use theirs and if you want to use yours you don't get the job.

    Do what's best for you

    Their contract is probably over achieving in their favor. If you want/need the work, have your legal adviser see if it makes sense for you. If not, skip it. If so, go for it.

    Personally, I believe there is enough snow work out there that you can find clients that will sign your contract.

    Good luck.
