      • Number of visits per year monthly or quarterly;
      • Work that needs to be done each visit;
      • Size of pond and filters;
    • The Monthly Fee is inclusive of any VAT chargeable. If the rate of any such VAT changes, We will adjust the amount of VAT that You must pay.
    • We will charge You for any Products supplied as part of our provision of the Pond Services. We will seek your approval before supplying and charging you for any Products. You may, if you wish, authorise Us to supply Products up to a specified value each month without seeking approval.
    • If the price of Products that We need to procure increases between Your approval of the price and Our purchase of the Products, We will inform You of the increase and seek your approval to proceed. You may, if you wish, pre-authorise a specified percentage increase in the price of Products.
    • We will invoice You at the end of each Service Period for the Pond Services provided during that Service Period.
    • You must pay each invoice within 7 days of receiving it.
    • We accept the following methods of payment:
      • Bank Transfer;
      • Cash;
    • If You do not pay an invoice by the due date, We may charge You interest on the overdue sum at the rate of 5% above the base rate of Natwest from time to time until payment is made in full. Interest will accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the actual date of payment, whether before or after judgment.
    • If You have promptly contacted Us to dispute an invoice in good faith, We will not charge interest while such a dispute is ongoing.

 

  1. Pond Services
    • We will provide the Pond Services in accordance with the specification set out in the accepted Quotation and in the Agreement (as may be amended by agreement in writing between You and Us from time to time).
    • We will begin to provide the Pond Services on the Start Date and will continue to provide the Pond Services until the Agreement is terminated by You or Us in accordance with these Terms and Conditions.
    • We will use reasonable endeavours to ensure that You are always assigned the same pond expert. If a particular pond expert is unavailable, We will inform You of any change prior to a Visit.
    • We may, from time to time, provide sketches, impressions, plans or similar documents. Any such material is intended for illustrative purposes only and is not intended to provide an exact specification of the Pond Services nor to guarantee specific results.
    • We will use reasonable endeavours to ensure that the Products We use match those chosen by You. Given the nature of plants, trees, shrubs and similar, there may be slight variations to the same Products as a result of differences between photographs, catalogues and other materials, and the Products themselves. Product packaging, where applicable, may vary. There may also be minor technical differences with certain Products that will not affect Your use of them. If during any Service Period Products different from those chosen by You are required due to non-availability of the Products chosen by You, We will only supply them after consulting with You. If when We consult You, You tell Us that You do not wish to accept the alternative Products, the non-availability of the Products chosen by You shall be regarded as an event outside of Our reasonable control (Force Majeure – see Clause 14) and You may accordingly cancel the Agreement for that reason under Sub-Clause 12.2.4.
    • The responsibility (sometimes referred to as the “risk”) for the Products remains with Us until they have been delivered to You at which point it will pass to You. You will own the Products once We have received payment in full for them.
    • We will ensure that the Pond Services are performed with reasonable care and skill and to a reasonable standard which is consistent with best practice in the Pond market.
    • We will ensure that We comply with all relevant codes of practice.
    • We will properly dispose of all waste that results from provision of the Pond Services.
    • We will ensure that no parts of the Property suffer damage as a result of Our provision of the Pond Services. We will at Our expense make good any damage that occurs at no additional expense to You as soon as is reasonably possible. We may instruct You to take reasonable steps to protect the Property while We are performing the Pond Services. We will not be liable for any damage which occurs as a result of Your failure to follow such instructions.

 

  • We will where reasonably possible leave the Property in a clean and tidy state at the end of each Visit and minimise any disruption to Your use and enjoyment of the Property while work is being carried out. We will wherever possible store all tools and materials only in areas where work is being carried out or remove them from the Property at the end of each working day.
  • If Pond work beyond the normal remit of the Pond Services is required (to deal with diseased plants or storm damage, for example) We will first obtain Your consent to perform such work and will add the costs of such work to the invoice for the Service Period in which the work takes place.

 

  1. Faulty Products
    • If any Products are supplied in the course of Us providing the Pond Services, and You discover a defect with one or more of those Products or if the Product or Products have been incorrectly described, You should inform Us using the contact details above in Clause 3.
    • Within the first 30 calendar days after supply of any Product(s), You are entitled, at Your option, to a full refund, to keep the Product(s) at a reduced price, or to a repair or replacement.
    • After those first 30 calendar days, and for the first six months after supply of any Product(s), We will, at Our option, repair or replace any defective Products or, if a repair or replacement is not practicable or possible, or if a repair or replacement is unsuccessful, You are entitled to a full refund. Alternatively, You may keep the Product(s) at a reduced price. This right may not apply if We can prove that the defect has been caused deliberately or negligently by You, or as a result of Your failure to follow instructions given by Us or as included with the Product.
    • After the first six months after supply of any Product(s), if any Product develops a fault, You must prove that the Product in question was faulty at the time We supplied it and You took ownership of it. You may be entitled to a repair or replacement, or to a partial refund for up to six years depending upon the nature of the Product and how long it can reasonably be expected to last.

 

  1. Problems with Our Service
    • If there is a problem with the result of the Pond Services, i.e. they have not been provided with reasonable care and skill, You are entitled to ask Us to repeat or fix the Pond Services, or to get a price reduction if this is not possible.
    • We always use reasonable efforts to ensure that Our provision of the Pond Services is trouble-free. If, however, there is a problem with the Pond Services We request that You inform Us as soon as is reasonably possible. We will use reasonable efforts to remedy problems with the Pond Services as quickly as is reasonably possible and practical.
    • We will not charge You for remedying problems under this Clause 8 where the problems have been caused by Us. If We determine that a problem has been caused by incorrect or incomplete information or action provided or taken by You, We may charge You for remedial work.
    • As a Consumer, You have certain legal rights with respect to the purchase of goods or services. For full details of your legal rights and guidance on exercising them, it is recommended that You contact your local Citizens Advice Bureau or Trading Standards Office.
    • If We do not perform and complete any of the Pond Services with reasonable skill and care, You have the right to request repeat performance of those particular services or, if that is not possible or done within a reasonable time without inconvenience to You, You have the right to a reduction in price;
    • If the Pond Services are not performed in line with information that We have provided about them, You also have the right to request repeat performance or, if that is not possible or done within a reasonable time without inconvenience to You (or if Our breach concerns information about Us that does not relate to the performance of the Pond Services), You have the right to a reduction in price.
    • If for any reason We are required to repeat the Pond Services in accordance with Your legal rights, We will not charge You for doing so and We will bear any and all costs of doing so. In cases where a price reduction applies, this may be any sum up to the full fees payable for the work in question and, where You have already made payment(s) to Us, may result in a full or partial refund. Any such refunds will be issued without undue delay (and in any event within 14 calendar days starting on the date on which We agree that You are entitled to the refund) and made via the same payment method originally used by You unless You request an alternative method.

 

  1. Your Obligations
    • If any consents, licences or other permissions are needed from any third parties such as landlords, planning authorities, local authorities or similar, You must obtain them before we begin to provide the relevant part of the Pond Services.
    • We may ask you to move or remove certain furniture, fixtures and fittings or other items at the Property before we begin work. Unless You and We specifically agree otherwise, this is Your responsibility.

    • You may either give Us a set of keys to the Property or be present at the Agreed Times to give Us access. We promise that all keys will be kept safely and securely by Us.

You may use the Model Cancellation Form, but You do not have to.
    • To meet the cancellation deadline, it is sufficient for You to send Your communication concerning the exercise of the right to cancel before the cancellation period has expired.
    • If You exercise this right to cancel You will receive a full refund of any amount paid to the Us in respect of the contract.
    • We will refund money using the same method used to make the payment, unless You have expressly agreed otherwise. In any case, You will not incur any fees as a result of the refund.
    • We will process the refund due to You as a result of a cancellation without undue delay and, in any case, within the period of 14-calendar days after the day on which We are informed of the cancellation.

      • We will issue a refund within 7 days and in any event no later than 14-calendar days after We receive the relevant Products (and will include standard delivery charges if You send the Products to Us);
      • You must return the Products to Us within 14-calendar days of the day on which You inform Us that You wish to cancel and return them;
      • We may make a deduction from the refund for loss in value of any Products supplied, if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling by You;
      • Please also note that Products that become inseparably mixed with others and perishable Products cannot be returned.
    • If the Start Date falls within the cooling off period, You must make an express request for provision of the Pond Services to begin within the 14-calendar day cooling off period. This request forms a normal part of the ordering process.By making such a request You acknowledge and agree to the following:
      • If You cancel the Agreement after provision of the Pond Services has begun, You will be required to pay for the Pond Services supplied and any Products that cannot be returned to Us up until the point at which You inform Us of Your wish to cancel;

      • We are unable to provide the Pond Services due to an event outside of Our control (see Clause 14);
      • We wish to change these Terms and Conditions to Your material disadvantage.

If such cancellation is necessary, We will inform You as soon as is reasonably possible.
    • After the Start Date, We may terminate the Agreement at any time by giving You at least 14 days written notice.

      • You have made any payment to Us for any Pond Services We have not yet provided, these sums will be refunded to You as soon as is reasonably possible, and in any event within 14-calendar days of the termination notice. We may, however, deduct from such a refund (or charge You) reasonable compensation for the net costs We will incur as a result of your breaking the Agreement if We terminate it under sub-Clauses 12.5.1, 12.5.2, or 12.5.3;
      • We have provided Pond Services that You have not yet paid for, the sums due will be deducted from any refund due to You or, if no refund is due, We will invoice You for those sums and You will be required to make payment in accordance with Clause 5.
