  1. Understanding these terms and conditions

1.1 These terms and conditions (Terms and Conditions) set out the terms on which we agree to provide all property maintenance, construction projects and ancillary services to you (Services). The services may be either: (i) emergency services, where you require us to perform the Services urgently, for example in the case of a water leak that is causing damage to your property and which you request that we repair immediately (emergency services); or (ii) scheduled services where you require us to perform non-urgent services, for example if you need us to install garden fence that (scheduled services).

1.2 When certain words and phrases are used in these terms and conditions, they have specific meanings (these are known as ‘defined terms’). you can identify these defined terms because they start with capital letters (even if they are not at the start of a sentence). Where a defined term is used, it has the meaning given to it in the section of these Terms and Conditions where it was defined (you can find these meanings by looking at the sentence where the defined term is included in brackets and speech marks).

1.3.1 if you are a consumer, the individual using the Services for a purpose that is wholly or mainly outside of their trade, business, craft, or profession; and

1.3.2 if you are not a consumer: (i) the business that you have the authority to bind; or (ii) the individual using the Services for purposes that are not wholly or mainly outside of their trade, business, craft, or profession (in each case a ‘Business’).

 

  1. The Order Process

2.1 You can make an order for Services either by email or by phone. The ordering process is as follows:

2.1.1 you shall either:

(a) call us and follow the instructions of the telephone operator; or

(b) email us your enquiry, in each case using the contact details set out in clause 12, in order to arrange a time for us to attend the premises at which you wish us to perform the Services (‘Premises’) to perform an inspection of the Premises and assess the Services required (‘inspection’);

2.1.2 once the date and time of the inspection is confirmed, we will then email you to confirm the details of the inspection;

2.1.3 Once the work is completed, you will have the right to dispute the work within 14 days only from the date the service was provided otherwise we will not be liable to your disputed work. If you dispute the work within 14 days, you must send us images/details of the reported fault and grant us access to return within 3 working days. Once we have returned and rectified the disputed work and we can prove so, your invoice will be payable in full. If you choose not to grant us the right to return and rectify the disputed work, then you will still be liable to pay the full invoice amount. If the invoice is not paid, we reserve the right to take legal action and recover legal costs under EU rules.

2.1.4 The Contract will become binding on you and us once you accept the Quotation (By confirming your acceptance via email or phone).
