Should you decide to cancel the contract within the ‘Cancellation Period’ (see section 1.3 of this Contract) we will return that deposit to you in full.

We may use your further advance payment to purchase goods and deliver them to you. If we do this, and only if title to those goods transfers to you, the sum used to purchase those specific goods will no longer represent an advance payment.

Where a mechanical installation is on a flat roof (Flat roofs are defined as those with an angle less than 10° to the horizontal) where the waterproofing membrane is penetrated,

This work must be undertaken by competent persons and must be of the necessary quality for the installation. If this preparatory work is not finished before the agreed date on which the installation is due to start, then the conditions described in clause 2.2.7 of this Contract will apply.

Additional charges

5.4 Should you be in breach of conditions set out in 4.1, 4.2 and 4.3 of this Contract, you may incur additional costs due to delay and/or provision of additional services.

If asbestos is present, it is your responsibility to instruct a licensed Contractor to remove this.

6.2.If we agree to this change of work you must

  • confirm your request in writing; and,
  • do so within 14 days of when you first tell us.

7.1.The Proposal given to you details the daily costs that would be payable by you from any unexpected work due to site conditions or special circumstances beyond our control.

7.2.Where unexpected work arises, we will advise you and ask how you want us to proceed. If you want us to continue, then section 6.3 of this Contract will apply.


8.1.We will deliver the goods to the location detailed in the Proposal. Where products and materials are delivered, or stored at the installation site, you shall not be liable for the inspection, storage or handling of those goods. However, this does not preclude us asking you to verify receipt of the goods in general terms such as what has been delivered and any visual signs of damage.

8.2.In case we fall into receivership, administration, or bankruptcy before we deliver the goods to you, we will insure the money you pay us in advance.

Any deposits and/or advance payments you make to us, up to 25% of the value of the contract or £5000 (whichever is the lower amount) will be insured through (HIES).

We will provide you with details of the insurance scheme we use and you will receive policy documentation directly from the provider once you have signed the Contract.

8.3.We will also ensure that our guarantees will be honoured should we fall into receivership, administration, or bankruptcy during the term of the installer’s guarantee period.

The Client Account

8.4.We may place any payments/deposits made before the goods have been delivered to your property into a special ‘client’ or other third-party account. We may also use the protected payment scheme which the Code administrator has arranged. This money can only be used for work carried out under this Contract.

8.4.1.If we should fall into receivership, administration, or bankruptcy then the money in that dedicated bank account (or held within the protected payment scheme) will be returned to you or passed to another supplier who will complete the work for you.

8.5 Where your money has been used to make specific purchases on your behalf, then legal title to those goods, or the proportion of them you have paid for, will pass to you. We will either deliver the goods to you or label them as belonging to you.

When we store the goods, we will keep them separate from our own goods and those of third parties. We will also keep the goods stored, protected, insured, and identified as your property until they are delivered to you. You must be able to inspect the goods and/or repossess them.

8.6.Goods belonging to us may be delivered to the site. If the Contract is terminated early for reasons detailed in section 9.3 of this Contract then, with reasonable notice, we will collect any goods delivered to you. If this happens then we will reimburse you if any of your money was used to purchase a proportion of the goods. If you do not allow us to collect the goods, we retain the right to take legal proceedings to recover the goods or their value from you.

8.6.1. If the Contract is terminated early for reasons detailed under section 9.4 of this Contract then, with reasonable notice, you must return and deliver the goods to us. If this happens, you may have to pay compensation for reasonable costs or losses reasonably incurred. This may be deducted from any deposit or further advance payment you have already made.

8.7 Until ownership of the goods passes to you, you must:

  • store the goods separately in such a way that they remain readily identifiable as our property;
  • not destroy, deface, or obscure any identifying mark or packaging on or relating to the goods; and,
  • maintain the goods in a satisfactory condition.
