Terms & Conditions

! - Period of Quotation
Quotations remain valid for 30 days from date of issue. Thereafter, we reserve the right to withdraw or adjust subject to confirmation.

! - Basis of Quotation

The works will be carried out during normal working hours Monday to Friday unless stated to the contrary. Variations or additional works shall be charged on a time and materials basis. We require a written confirmation of these extra works prior to the work being carried out, unless this does not prove practicable, in which case as soon as possible.

The basis of quotation is on a fixed price unless expressly agreed to the contrary.

Where a contract exceeds a period of six months from acceptance of quotation, we reserve the right to reflect increased costs. Whilst reasonable care will be taken we do not include for re-decoration or other minor works consequent on the proper execution of the works.

We accept no responsibility for any drawing, design or specification not provided by us.

The laying of pipe work runs is by shortest practicable routes. Work by other trades, any statutory fees, or charges for work done by Supply Authority or Local Authority is not included.

i - Completion

We will endeavour to carry out the work within a specified time scale, or if no period stipulated, within a reasonable time. Some delays are outside our reasonable control for example unusually severe weather conditions. If such a delay occurs we will tell you as soon as possible, but we are not liable for any resulting financial losses you incur due to such delays.

i - Terms of Payment

(a) For contracts less than 4 weeks duration - payment in full is required upon completion.

For contracts over 4 weeks, a written application/invoices may be submitted monthly in arrears for the total value of work executed (less any previous payment received). Payments should be made on demand.

All materials remain the property of Simon Lee, trading as Green Lane Plumbing until payment has been made in full.

Any payment made after 14 days after the due payment date (invoice date) will be subject to a late payment charge of £50.00 or 10% of the invoice total (whichever is greater) unless otherwise agreed by Simon Lee t/a Green Lane Plumbing Services.

If in arrears of 60 days, debts will be handed to a debt collection agency and any costs incurred will be charged.

i - Guarantee

All our works are carried out to meet Water Regulations requirements and the Corgi Plumbers Scheme's best practice requirements.
Without prejudice to the customer's statutory rights, the Contractor will pass to the customer the benefits of any guarantees the Contractor has received in respect of materials supplied by the Contractor and undertakes to repair or, if necessary, replace free of charge any materials or work found to be defective if the defect is due to faulty workmanship by the contractor, his servants or agents and is brought to his attention within 12 months of the completion of the work, provided nevertheless that:

(a) The Contractor's responsibility to the Customer is limited to the fulfilment of the contract in a proper and workmanlike manner and the Contractor shall not be liable for any consequential loss, such as flooring, tiling, soft furnishings or floor coverings arising out of the execution of the Contract, unless due to the negligence of the Contractor, his servants, or agents.

The repair or replacement of any faulty work or materials shall only be carried out by the Contractor, his servants, or agents, otherwise the Contractor's warranties as to repair or replacement shall not apply and no other contractors charge will be accepted.

The Contractor will take reasonable care but accepts no liability for damage to furniture or other fixtures and fittings which have to be moved by the Contractor or his workmen in order to carry out the Contracted Works unless such damage is caused by our negligence. Without prejudice to this the Contractor will maintain adequate Public Liability Insurance cover for at least the duration of the contract.
