Expiry of Estimate / Quotation

Estimates and quotations are valid for 60 days from submission date, unless otherwise stated on the estimate or quotation, after which period the contractor reserves the right to withdraw and submit a new estimate.

 

Payment Method

Our preferred method of payment is by direct bank credit into our account which will be detailed on the invoice.  Alternatively please make cheques payable to Primrose Garden Maintenance Limited.

Payment is due upon completion of the contract, unless otherwise stated on the quotation.  A surcharge of 3.0% of the invoice amount per overdue month may be levied on all accounts not paid within 30 days of the date of the invoice.  Costs incurred collecting overdue accounts will be the responsibility of the client.

Ownership

It is assumed that all areas specified in the quotation are owned by the client unless otherwise stated.

 

Underground Services and Electrical Wires

Although every care will be taken to avoid such services, unless the exact location of underground pipes, wire or cables are clearly marked on site, or detailed on a plan prior to the formation of the contract, or work commencing the contractor shall be under no liability for any damage through work performed under the contract.

It is imperative that the client makes the contractor aware of any electrical wires not contained within armoured protection before work commences.  No liability can be taken should non armoured cables be damaged, plus the contractor reserves the right to sue for damages should injury or death occur whilst undertaking work for the client and this information has not been made aware to the contractor.

 

Weather

Completion of contract can be dependent upon weather conditions.  Work operations delayed by poor weather conditions will be resumed as soon as conditions allow and the contractor shall not be liable for any costs incurred for any delay in completion due to weather conditions.  However we do everything we can to ensure the work is completed on time.

 

Vandalism

Damage through vandalism of part completed work whilst the contractor is not on site will not be the responsibility of the contractor.

 

By agreeing the proposed works the client is deemed to have read and understood the contract and agrees to abide by the terms of agreement set out in it.

 

The terms of Agreement cannot be changed unless agreed by both parties in writing.
