The short answer is "it depends" but mostly, yes you do provide source.
If a client hires you to do work, that work is "made for hire" and by default belongs to the client.

Is it typical to provide source code to the client? If so, is there a

reselling it? How do you handle your clients from the side of software
development? Contracts? I'm not new to the machine, but I am new to
the consulting side, so I deeply appreciate any thoughts and advice you
