Things we cannot cover
We take no responsibility for obtaining the relevant planning consents and for arranging for building control inspections. This is solely the responsibility of the client and/or their architect/project manager (or other client nominated appointee)
We are unable to guarantee our work, or any parts and equipment supplied to you: If parts or equipment are misused, treated negligently or if our work is modified or tampered with by anyone other than us. Where we carry out works on your behalf, using materials that you have supplied, we’re not able to establish provenance, quality, fitness for purpose or otherwise of these materials, so we cannot stand by their suitability, efficacy, or durability. We cannot guarantee: Work where you order us to carry out work against the advice of our representative. This advice will be given to you either orally, or in writing. Our guarantee is also void if we indicate that further works need to be carried out and this is not done. Because of its nature any work to unblock waste or drainage pipes. Nor can we guarantee further damage or defects caused by work that is not fully guaranteed or where recommended further work has not been carried out. Work on existing installations that are either inferior or more than 10 years old nor can we guarantee the effectiveness or otherwise of our work in these cases. Unless otherwise indicated, estimates are plumbing-only and do not include any building work, redecoration or making good. Although care will be taken, we cannot be held responsible for any floor coverings that we need to lift, or cupboards that we need to modify/dismantle, or any consequential damage that arises while gaining access to the areas where works are required.
We will only be liable for rectifying our own work and shall not be held responsible for any ensuing damage or claims resulting from this or other work overlooked or subsequently requested and undertaken at that time. We shall not be held liable for any delay, or consequences of any delay, in performing our obligations if such a delay is due to any cause beyond our reasonable control and we shall be entitled to reasonable time extensions. Inadvertent errors or omissions that occur in connection with quotes and invoices shall not constitute a liability provided that any such error or omission is corrected as promptly as commercially practicable after discovery. The steps that we will take to deal with client-assessed liability issues after a job is complete are as follows: If you believe that we have not done the work that we set out to do in the correct manner or have caused consequential problems through our actions, we will arrange with you to come and investigate the problem at the earliest possible opportunity. This will be a CHARGEABLE visit, at a cost of £170 + expenses + VAT, to be paid for in advance for our engineers’ time, to attend the site and discuss the issues that you wish to raise and investigate your claims. If it is found that the problems have been caused by negligence or as a consequence of our actions, we will endeavour to put matters to right at our expense and refund you the cost of the investigating visit as well, subject to our terms and conditions. If we discover that the issues raised are not due to our actions during previous call-outs, we will provide an explanation of what the current issue is and an estimate for the cost of putting it right. If the issue is due to a misunderstanding of the instructions that you received from our engineer or tradesperson at the time, then this will be a chargeable visit. We shall be entitled to recover the costs or damages from any person or contractor whose negligence or faulty workmanship makes us liable to pay for those damages or rectification of work.
Title to Goods
Goods supplied and delivered by us to you, or your premises shall remain our property until paid for by you in full. Whilst goods remain our property (we continue to have title over them) we have the absolute authority to retake, sell or otherwise dispose of all or any part of these goods. At any time and without notice we shall also be entitled to enter any premises in which our goods, or any part of them, are installed, stored or kept or it is reasonably believed to be so.
