    General Terms and Conditions

  1. Purple Fox Plumbing Ltd will complete all work stated on the quotation provided to you for the fixed price provided.

You can call a specialist contractor to remove these dangerous materials. When asbestos is removed you will need to produce a ‘Clean Air’ certificate, which you can get from the asbestos removal company, before we can continue to work at your property.
  5. Any time frames we give you are our best estimates and we will endeavour to comply with those time frames. If delays become likely, we will let you know as soon as possible.

Liability and Indemnity

  1. Our liability under these Terms and Conditions shall be limited as set out in this section.
  2. The total amount of liability is limited to the total amount of Fees payable by you under the Contract

    ii. any loss or profits; loss of anticipated profits; loss of business; business interruption; or other third party claims, or;
    iii. any failure to perform any of our obligations if such failure or delay is due to any cause beyond our reasonable control; or

  4. As water supply rates can change, Purple Fox Plumbing Ltd is not responsible for failure of your hot water system due to inadequate or fluctuating water supply. Where combi boilers and unvented cylinders are supplied, it is not uncommon to find that hot water flow rates are reduced if more than one tap or outlet is used simultaneously. This is characteristic of these systems, and is not considered a fault or defect.
  5. If we cause unnecessary damage due to negligence, we will ensure action is taken in a reasonable timeframe to repair any damage. The Company accepts no responsibility for damage which is attributable to structural defect or weakness unless such damage is a result of  negligence.
  6. Neither party is liable for any failure or delay, where such failure or delay results from any cause that is beyond the reasonable control of that party. If the delay continues for a period of 90 days, either party may terminate or cancel the Services to be carried out.
