Terms & Conditions
Every day countless people are busy giving quotes and placing orders for goods and services. Most will know that as soon as that quote or order is accepted they will have entered into a legally binding contract for the supply of those goods and services even if the quote or order was just given verbally.
Whilst each order or quote will cover the essentials of who is to do what, by when and for how much, busy people simply do not have the time to address all the issues they ought to consider when entering into a contract, such as:
- how long is a quote or order open for acceptance?
- what is the exact specification of the goods?
- what is to happen if the goods are not as described or are faulty?
- whether the contract can be cancelled if there is a delay in delivery or performance?
- when does ownership of the goods pass?
- can the goods be repossessed if not paid for?
- if a party is in default, to what extent are they liable?
- what happens if, through no fault of their own, a party is unable to meet their obligations?
If such issues are not properly addressed at the time the parties enter into the contract there is a very real risk of a dispute arising between the parties that will prove time consuming and costly to resolve.
KBL Solicitors can help you manage that risk by helping you prepare your own terms and conditions that will, to the extent that the law allows, resolve these issues and more in the way that is most favourable to you.
