5. Your Obligations

If We need information, materials, consents or other things from You to provide the Services, You will need to provide them to Us or give Us access to them, and if You do not, We will not be liable to You if We delay or fail to provide the Services due to Your failure to comply with this Clause 5.

Your acceptance of the quotation will be Your confirmation that You are a Consumer, and You may not accept it if You are not a Consumer. If and when You accept that offer, it will be Your and Our agreement to the quotation and these Terms and Conditions, and there will then (from the time that You accept the quotation) be a legally binding contract between You and Us on those Terms and Conditions for Us to provide the Services in accordance with the quotation.

10.1.1 You may for any reason cancel any of the Services during the 14 day period after You accept the quotation, but if the quotation includes any Services to be provided on any date/(s) falling before the end of that 14 day period and if You expressly request Us to provide those Services and We do so, You may not cancel the Services to be provided in that 14 day period, and You must pay for them as required by these Terms and Conditions. You may also during that 14 day period cancel any Services covered by the quotation which are to be provided either: 

(a) after the end of that 14 day period; or 

(b) during that 14 day period if they are Services which You have not expressly requested Us to provide in that 14 day period.

10.1.2 If all of the Services covered by the quotation have been fully provided within that 14 day period, You will lose the right to cancel those Services. 

10.1.3 If, as allowed by the Regulations (and this sub-Clause 10.1), You request that the Services to be provided are to be cancelled by You, You must confirm this in any way convenient to You.

10.2.1 immediately if We fail to provide or We delay in providing the Services if that failure or delay is a breach of either these Terms and Conditions or of any requirement of the Consumer Rights Act 2015 or of any other applicable legislation. In that case we shall refund to You in full any deposit or other amount that You have paid us, and You will not be liable to Us for any Fees or other amount in respect of any Services We have provided or have yet to provide. We will be liable to You for any such breach, subject to Clause 12; or 

10.2.2 without any reason, if You give Us at least one months prior notice, and sub-Clause 10.4 will then apply; or

10.2.3 without any reason and without notice, and sub-Clause 10.4 will then apply, and, in addition, You will be liable to Us for the amount of any net financial loss that We suffer due to Your termination but not exceeding 100% of the total price of the Services covered by the quotation.

Clause 7.6 also contains a right for You to cancel the Services in the circumstances set out there.

10.3.4 We find that you are not a Consumer.

10.4 On termination under any of sub-Clauses 10.2.2, 10.2.3, or 10.3, Fees will be payable by You up to the date of termination as follows. Where the Services are an ongoing service to be provided over a period before and after the date of that termination, or where only part of the Services have been provided by that date, Fees will be payable if the Services have been provided, and the amount payable will be based on the Fee rate or in proportion to the total price. If sub-Clause 10.2.3 applies, note that an additional amount may be payable under that sub-Clause.

10.5 If You are liable to Us under this Clause 10 for any amount/(s), We may take that amount from any deposit that we hold and shall return any balance to you. However, if the deposit that We take is less than Your liability, You must pay Us the difference.
