You have requested that we undertake certain works for you and, by allowing us to proceed with those works, you are indicating your agreement to the Terms set out below.

In the event of unforeseen circumstances or unexpected issues arising, it may be necessary to review the original price and provide you with a new estimate. You have the right to accept or decline the revised price.
The written quotation follows the estimate and is the final price for the works discussed, including labour and materials, additional costs including expenses (if any) and tax. Any subsequent variation to the works (including, without limitation, if you change the scope or if unforeseen circumstances or unexpected issues arise) will likely result in a new or revised written quotation. You have the right to accept or decline the new quotation. Should you choose to decline, all works will cease and, on receipt of our invoice, you must pay in full for all works already completed in accordance with the original quotation.
For the avoidance of doubt, all materials and/or products supplied and delivered to you during the course of the works shall remain the property of PG Plumbing, Heating & Gas until such time as the works have been paid for in full by you, following receipt of our invoice. Title to such materials and/or products will transfer to you only when full payment has been received by us.
Neither party shall be held liable for any delay or failure in fulfilling their obligations under these Terms where such delay or failure results from circumstances beyond that party’s control (including, but not limited to, an act of God, fire, act of government or state, prevention from or hindrance in obtaining any raw materials, energy or other supplies, industrial action or labour disputes of whatever nature, and any other reason beyond the control of that party).

You are obligated to pay for any services provided to you during this 14-day cancellation period, if any.
Full payment terms (including, where relevant, interval payments to be made by you) are as set out in the applicable quotation. For the avoidance of doubt, you agree to settle any undisputed invoice in full upon completion unless otherwise agreed and you further agree to pay us interest at a rate of 2.5% above the Bank of England base rate on any payments not settled in accordance with these Terms and the terms of the applicable quotation.
We hope and expect that you will have no cause to complain about any aspect of our service. If, however, there is anything at any point that does not meet your expectations, please do not hesitate to let us know and we will do our utmost to make things right.
