Customers entering into contracts “off the premises” of the trader are
given a 14-calendar-day cooling-off period. This means they can change
their mind for any reason after placing an order, subject to limited
exceptions. Work can however commence within the cooling-off period so long
as the customer expressly agrees to this.
The customer is also given a clear and concise summary of the pre-contract
information they are entitled to receive.
It is important for all traders to be aware of their obligations and the
