This contract is for use by a Home Owner or Self Builder who is entering into an agreement with a company to supply and install equipment. The contract can be used for a wide variety of supplies e.g. a conservatory, a kitchen or a swimming pool.
This is a fairly comprehensive document designed from the perspective of the client rather than the supplier. The contract comprises a one-page Form of Agreement, Terms & Conditions, and Schedules setting out details of the equipment to be supplied and installed plus the contract price and payment details. The Terms & Conditions contain 13 clauses dealing with such matters as work on site, price and payment, changes and delay, completion and defects, insurance and indemnity, termination, and resolution of disputes.
The contract terms are easy to read and largely self explanatory. The Schedules need to be completed with all relevant details and our template contains some indicative sample wording.
