I'm not saying that you were going to but....

Don't change the URLs (i.e. don't change the filenames and path names)
unless you put in re-directs.

It is very common for someone once they take over someone else's site
to want to feel it is their site by throwing out the old and replacing
it with their version. This is IHMO a sign of immaturity in a web
designer. You should build on what has gone before and improve it, not
trash it.

again, I'm not saying you were going to but someone else might.
