Providing the products
5. The Purchaser shall grant the Company’s Representatives unrestricted access to the premises at all reasonable times for the purposes of taking measurements, of carrying out the works forming the subject of the Contract and for any subsequent remedial work if required. In some cases, the Company may need to site skips, ladders, or vehicles on the premises in order to complete its contractual obligations. The Purchaser agrees at no cost to the Company to provide such electricity, gas, water or other services to enable the Company to complete the installation and if necessary, any remedial works. In the event of access being required to neighbouring land it is the Purchaser’s responsibility to ensure that access is granted, and the Company shall not be held liable for any delays arising out of the Purchaser’s inability to gain such access.
5.1. As soon as practicable and in any event within 14 days of the date of this Agreement the Company will arrange an appointment for detailed measurements of the proposed works to be taken by a Representative of the Company (“the Survey”) so that the Company may satisfy itself of:
a. the technical viability of the works
b. compliance with current laws and regulations
c. the applicability to the contract of The Party Walls Act
d. the appropriateness of the price specified
The Survey will be carried out at the earliest opportunity and will usually be within 21 days after the date of this Agreement. The Purchaser agrees by signing this contract that should the Company’s surveyor be unable to confirm that asbestos is not present in the vicinity of the proposed installation, he may remove a sample for analysis. Where sample is taken, the Company’s obligation to make good is limited to sealing any area that has been disturbed in such manner as the Company may reasonably deem appropriate. The time limits provided in this clause are subject to access being provided by the Purchaser in accordance with clause 5 of the Agreement
5.2. The Company agrees to supply the products at the price specified in the Agreement subject to the Surveyor’s approval of the feasibility of the works, the site conditions and correctness of the price. As a result of the findings of the survey, the Company may need to carry out additional enquiries and further site investigations to determine the viability of the contract. In those circumstances, the Company shall send written notification to the Purchaser within 14 days of survey advising that the Contract is suspended for a period of 28 days from the date of that letter (“the Suspension Period”). In the event of any modification to the works being required due to the Survey, within the Suspension Period the Company shall either cancel the Contract or send written notification to the Purchaser of any modification required to the works and the price. In the event of any modification to the price being required due to the Survey that does not require additional enquiries as set out above, within 14 days of the survey the Company shall either cancel the Contract or send the Purchaser a written notice explaining the reason for any modification required to the price. For example, the reason may be due to additional building work such as new lintels, legal requirements or the discovery of asbestos related materials within the vicinity which were not identified at the time purchase. If the Purchaser does not accept any proposed modifications within 14 days of their notification, the contract shall be cancelled. In circumstances when the Contract is cancelled, the administration charge of £190.00 shall be applied.
5.3. The Company is supplying “made to measure goods” under the contract and so the Purchaser does not have a statutory right to cancel the contract under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013. As members of the GGF, we adhere to their Code of Good Practice and offer a contractual right to cancel the contract in accordance with the Notice of Cancellation Rights set out below. The Company reserves the right to cancel the contract for any reason within 7 days of this contract being signed.

It is the Purchaser’s responsibility to ensure that all areas of work and access to those areas are completely clear and unobstructed to allow unhindered commencement and progress of the works. Suitable arrangements should be made by the Purchaser for any such works to be carried out prior to commencement of the works required under this Contract, failing which the Company may refuse to start the installation and shall be entitled to charge the Purchaser for the wasted costs that it has incurred and any loss of profit that it has suffered. Alternatively, the Company may agree a price with the Purchaser to carry out the required works as an addition
5.7. The Company will use reasonable endeavours to honour any date provided in connection with the delivery of the Contract, but cannot be held liable for any losses suffered as a result of any delay that has resulted from factors that could not have been foreseen by the Company and are outside the reasonable control of the Company.
