RECOMMENDED KBSA TERMS AND CONDITIONS
As a member of the KBSA (The Kitchen Bathroom Bedroom Association) my company is intent on giving the very best service that is possible and my company is regularly vetted by the association to ensure that we are achieving the high standards of customer satisfaction that were assessed prior to achieving and maintaining KBSA status.
We would like to explain our terms and conditions to you before you enter a contract with us and we have made them as straightforward as we can, bearing in mind that the design, supply and installation of a kitchen, bathroom, bedroom or home office can be a complicated process and we want you to be fully aware of the commitment that both parties are making to the contract.
In the event that you have any problem that we, as the supplier, cannot resolve, our membership of the KBSA gives both parties an independent mediation or expert witness service that can be assessed (please be aware that this service is chargeable). Although the following terms and conditions have been recommended by the KBSA, they are not responsible for any contracts that you may enter into with our company.
Terms and Conditions of sale
Our quotation is based on the prices ruling at the time of the contract. Should there be a price increase to us before delivery of the goods, then we reserve the right to increase our contract our price to our customer if the delivery is more than six weeks from date of contract. We will advise our customer of the increase and they will have the right to cancel the contract.
All quotations are based on the fact that all surfaces, walls, floors, structural, electrical, gas, water and other services are, or will be made fit for the purpose designated in the contract unless otherwise specified. Should such surfaces or services be unsuitable, the customer will be advised and will bear the additional costs, over and above the quotation, in order that such items be made fit for the contract to be completed.
All quotations are inclusive of VAT unless otherwise stated.
Our Company cannot guarantee the accuracy contained in any brochure or illustrative literature produced by any manufacturer.
3 Plans and Design
The plans and designs used to prepare the design are the property of the company until such time that the final balance for the contract has been paid. They shall not be reproduced either totally or in part without the written consent of the company.
The plans and designs are for guidance purposes only and, if computer aided design is used, then this is subject to additional colour variations.
Please check with us to view our current KBSA membership certificate as this will confirm our participation on the KBSA deposit protection scheme (Consumercare). This means that deposits up to a maximum of 25% of the total contract price are covered by the scheme. Full details are on their website: WWW.KBSA.CO.UK. We will require a 25% deposit to be paid when placing an order. A 65% payment towards the final balance will be required on day of fitting (applicable to kitchens & bathrooms only) with the final balance due on practical completion and should not defer any (please note that any minor remedial work will be carried out as soon as possible after practical completion and should not defer balance of final payment). Payment can be made by BACS transfer or cheque. If the payment is by cheque, then it will need to be cleared prior to delivery of goods if it is supply only. Our account details are Barclays Bank, Account Number 30464201, Sort Code 20-68-79.
The company will make every effort to ensure the delivery dates and installation start dates are adhered to but if unforeseen delays are experienced then we will advise the customer and agree revised dates. If any items are damaged then they will be replaced free of charge as long as the company is advised within reasonable time of delivery or commencement of installation. Some replacement items may be subject to delay if they have been specially ordered or commissioned for the contract.
Should the customer give reasonable notice that they are unable to commit to the agreed delivery and installation schedule then the goods may be stored at the company’s premises and an agreed charge could be made for the storage.
The customer is covered by the Sale of Goods Act and any further guarantees will depend upon the products supplied under the contract.
7 Customers responsibilities
It will be the responsibility of the customer to ensure that they have obtained any necessary consent or planning permission necessary for the installation or storage of the goods in the contract and the company will not be responsible for any damage or loss to the customer caused by any failure to obtain such consents.
These terms and conditions will apply only to the United Kingdom.
