Gardener Terms of Business Template

Gardener Terms & Conditions (Single Job)

BS.TC.10

These Gardener’s Terms and Conditions are designed for use by gardeners providing their services to domestic clients (i.e. consumers). This particular version of the document is best suited to one-off transactions. If the gardener is to be providing a regular service (with, for example, fortnightly visits), an alternative version of this document designed for use with on-going services is also available. 

These terms of business can be included in a document such as a quotation or displayed on a website. They can also be used as a stand-alone document.

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 template has been updated to help traders comply with the Consumer Rights Act 2015 which came into force on 1 October 2015. The language and presentation are designed to be “consumer-friendly” and the document should make sense to an average consumer who has no specialist business or legal knowledge.

The document also complies with the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013, which came into force on 13th June 2014. In particular:

- Customers entering into contracts “off the premises” of the trader are given a 14 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 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 rights of their customers under consumer protection laws. This template has been drafted with these laws in mind. Take care when amending the template to remain compliant with the legislation and, in particular, make sure you do not include any terms that may be deemed “unfair”.

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.
