Default Covering yourself legally when supplying software

I fear this is not the place to ask this question, but you may be able to point me to a useful place.

I have developed an ASP application for a client. The product is in acceptance testing stage.

I do not have a formal contract with my client that includes my terms and conditions, because the project began before my company had drawn up its terms and conditions. However, it would be prudent for me to provide, as part of the sign-off process, a document that states (at least) that the software is accepted "as is" without any guarantee/warranty.

Does anyone have experience of the kind of wording (in the UK) that covers this aspect. Would you be willing to tell me more about this, and/or tell me a good web site to get this kind of info "off-the-shelf". I can go to a lawyer for it, but it is very expensive for something that no doubt already exists in various forms.

Hope you can help. Thanks.

Unfortunately, to be safe, you need to go to a lawyer for this type of thing. While there are various terms and conditions verbage out there that you could look at, it was designed specifically for the company it relates to.

When it comes to things that can be legally fought in a court of law, id much rather pay a lawyer to draw up the document then to take a document that has already been generated where there could potentially be a loop hole for your client to exploit since the document wasnt generated specifically for you company.
