Decorator's Terms of Business (Business)

Decorating Terms and Conditions (Business)


These Decorating Terms and Conditions are designed for use by interior decorators providing their services to business clients. The definition of a business client is broad and may range from the owner of business premises to a landlord seeking the services of a decorator to work on their residential properties. These terms of business are designed primarily for inclusion in a document such as a quotation or for display on a website. They can also be used as a stand-alone document.

This document is compliant with the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation).

A "contract schedule" is also included which enables the terms and conditions contained within this document to be easily converted into a legally binding agreement.

This document has been updated to include a comprehensive set of new “boilerplate clauses”. These standard clauses are designed to offer greater legal certainty and protection for all parties concerned. Included in this update are more comprehensive terms covering force majeure, termination (with more instances in which an agreement can be terminated), assignment and sub-contracting and dispute resolution (with detailed options including good faith negotiations, alternative dispute resolution or “ADR” and arbitration). As a “business-to-business” document, these terms and conditions now also include a new confidentiality clause designed to protect sensitive business information.

Clauses in this template cover key factors including payment, the decorating services themselves, the obligations of the respective parties, insurance and liability.

An alternative version of this document is available which is designed for use by decorators rendering their services to domestic (consumer) clients.

Optional phrases / clauses are enclosed in square brackets. These should be read carefully and selected so as to be compatible with one another. Unused options should be removed from the document.
