Once the customer places an order and the deposit is received, a sales confirmation will be issued and the price stated will remain fixed.

Payments

A 25% deposit is due to secure an install date, 25% payment due first day onsite, 25% end of week 1 and remaining balance on completion. The finished building should be inspected and signed off prior to payment. If additional minor works (i.e. plastering, electrics, trimming) or any remedial action is required after the main installation, a proportionate retention of £1,000 is agreed between Smart Spaces Ltd and the customer until the outstanding works are completed. Any outstanding balance may be paid by bank transfer, unless other arrangements are made. All goods remain the property of the company until the final balance is paid for in full. Client cannot use the garden room until final balance is made.

You may at any time on or up to 14 days prior to Day 1, amend or cancel the Contract by providing us with written notice. If you amend or cancel the Contract before Day 1, we shall refund your Deposit and your liability to us shall be limited to payment to us of all costs reasonably incurred in connection with the Project until we received your amendment or cancellation. If you cancel the Contract at any time after 14 days prior to Day 1, your Deposit shall not be refundable. Planning Planning consent is not normally required. However, it is the customer’s responsibility to ensure that planning consent is not required for the installation or to obtain the relevant permissions prior to the commencement of the build. We recommend you seek clarification from your local planning authority.

Delivery

The company will always try to honour the estimated delivery/install date. However we cannot guarantee the install date and cannot be held responsible for postponement or delay outside of our control (for example extreme weather conditions, access difficulties, parking, traffic etc.) and cannot be liable for compensation. The company will not deliver or install products through domestic buildings, over fences or other obstacles without prior consultation and written agreement. Access route to the build site must be clear. Parking requiring permits must be arranged by the customer during the days of install. 0800 015 7101 | in**@sm*********.uk Document title here /4 The customer is responsible for providing all necessary parking permits, access and permissions in advance of the base and building installation dates. Access to electricity and water is required on site. Bases & Installations The customer must be present on the base date and is responsible for confirming the location of the base prior to construction. Once this position has been confirmed and base constructed the position cannot be changed. The customer should consider any areas surrounding the building that may be obstructed or restrict access to openings on or around the garden room. Access to electricity and water is required on site. Whilst every care is taken to avoid any damage to plants, grass, trees and garden landscaping, Smart Spaces Ltd cannot be held responsible for damage caused by the install team. We strongly recommend that garden landscaping is completed after the building has been installed to avoid any incidental damage. Spoils created by the base team will not be removed from site unless agreed prior to the works commencing. All installation personnel have been trained and briefed on safe working practices including use of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) in accordance with current Health and Safety regulations.

Electrical Works

A Part P certificate will only be supplied where Smart Spaces Ltd completes a full external connection of power and will only be supplied to the customer once the final balance has been paid in full. The certificate can take up to 21 days to process. Where a full connection has not been made, readings are available on request. It is the responsibility of the certified electrician completing the full connection to certify the electrical works. Every effort is made to provide an accurate quotation for electrical works, however the inspection of the customer’s power source and consumer unit is only visual and is based on the assumption that the customer’s electrics comply with current building regulations. SmartSpaces reserves the right to refuse to complete electrical work or to apply additional charges where a connection is not possible with the current power source/consumer unit. The customer will be informed prior to any necessary additional works being carried out.
