Terms and conditions of business for professionals and tradespeople.

Professional and Trade Terms and Conditions

Many services, for example building, decorating and plumbing will often be provided by individuals or small businesses, often with a focus on small to medium sized projects. Speed and simplicity will often thus be very important. 

Using the professional and trade terms and conditions contained within this subfolder ensures that both the tradesperson and the client have a clear picture of how the work will proceed. Both parties will be made aware of their respective obligations, particularly those relating to the provision of services and payment for those services.

In addition, the professional and trade terms and conditions will underscore the skills and experience of the tradesperson, thus providing reassurance to the customer and enhancing the business of the tradesperson.

If the professionals and tradespersons listed below carry out work for a consumer (as opposed to a business customer) the contract between the trader and the consumer is likely to be an “off-premises” contract under The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013. (“Off-premises” selling is also known as “doorstep” selling.) The “Home” versions of these documents therefore include provisions to help traders comply with the doorstep regulations. Detailed guidance on the Regulations can be found in our Information Pages.

These Trades Terms and Conditions are part of the Business Documents Folder. Just £35.00 + VAT will provide you with 1 year's unlimited access to download all/any documents from the Business Folder.
