7.3 We will use reasonable endeavours to ensure that the Products We use match those chosen by You and are consistent throughout the Property (or relevant parts of the Property). There may be slight variations to the same Products as a result of differences between photographs, catalogues and other materials, and the Products themselves, or as a result of minor technical changes which will not impact your use of the Product in question. Product packaging may also vary. If different Products are required due to non-availability, We will not supply them without consulting with You first, in advance of the Job. If You do not wish to accept the alternative Products, You may cancel and receive a full refund of all sums paid including, where applicable, the Deposit.

8.3 After the first 30 calendar days, and for the first six months, We will, at Our option, repair or replace any defective Products or, if a repair or replacement is not practicable or possible, or if a repair or replacement is unsuccessful, You are entitled to a full refund. Alternatively, You may keep the Product(s) at a reduced price. This right may not apply if We can prove that the defect has been caused deliberately or negligently by You, or as a result of Your failure to follow instructions given by the Electrician or as included with the Product.
8.4 After the first six months, if any Product develops a fault, You must prove that the Product in question was faulty at the time We supplied it and You took ownership of it. You may be entitled to a repair or replacement, or to a partial refund for up to six years depending upon the nature of the Product and how long it can reasonably be expected to last.
9. Problems with Our Service
9.1 If there is a problem with the result of the Electrical Services, i.e. they have not been provided with reasonable care and skill, You are entitled to ask Us to repeat or fix the service, or to get a price reduction if this is not possible.
9.2 We always use reasonable efforts to ensure that Our provision of the Electrical Services is trouble-free. If, however, there is a problem with the Electrical Services We request that You inform Us as soon as is reasonably possible. We will use reasonable efforts to remedy problems with the Electrical Services as quickly as is reasonably possible and practical.
9.3 We will not charge You for remedying problems under this Clause 9 where the problems have been caused by Us [or where nobody is at fault]. If We determine that a problem has been caused by incorrect or incomplete information or action provided or taken by You, We may charge You for remedial work.
9.4 As a consumer, You have certain legal rights with respect to the purchase of goods or services. For full details of your legal rights and guidance on exercising them, it is recommended that You contact your local Citizens Advice Bureau or Trading Standards Office.
9.5 If We do not perform the Electrical Services with reasonable skill and care, You have the right to request repeat performance or, if that is not possible or done within a reasonable time without inconvenience to You, You have the right to a reduction in price.
9.6 If the Electrical Services are not performed in line with information that We have provided about them, You also have the right to request repeat performance or, if that is not possible or done within a reasonable time without inconvenience to You (or if Our breach concerns information about Us that does not relate to the performance of the Electrical Services), You have the right to a reduction in price.
9.7 If for any reason We are required to repeat the Electrical Services in accordance with Your legal rights, We will not charge You for the same and We will bear any and all costs of such repeat performance. In cases where a price reduction applies, this may be any sum up to the full fees payable for the Job and, where You have already made payment(s) to Us, may result in a full or partial refund. Any such refunds will be issued without undue delay (and in any event within 14 calendar days starting on the date on which We agree that You are entitled to the refund) and made via the same payment method originally used by You unless You request an alternative method.

You may use the Model Cancellation Form, but You do not have to.
13.3 To meet the cancellation deadline, it is sufficient for You to send Your communication concerning the exercise of the right to cancel before the cancellation period has expired.
13.4 If You exercise this right to cancel You will receive a full refund of any amount paid to the Us in respect of the contract (including, but not limited to, the Deposit, where applicable).

13.6 We will process the refund due to You as a result of a cancellation without undue delay and, in any case, within the period of 14 calendar days after the day on which We are informed of the cancellation.
13.7 If You exercise the right to cancel in relation to Products:
13.7.1 We will issue a refund within 7 days and in any event no later than 14 calendar days after We receive the relevant Products (and will include standard delivery charges if You send the Products to Us);
13.7.2 You must return the Products to Us within 14 calendar days of the day on which You inform Us that You wish to cancel and return them;

14. Cancellation Outside of the Cooling Off Period
14.1 In addition to any rights you may have in Clause 13 relating to the cooling off period, You may terminate the Agreement (i.e. cancel the Job) at any time before the Start Date (if relevant):
14.1.1 If You cancel the Job after the 14 calendar day cooling off period has expired (or where it does not apply) and more than 7 calendar days before the Start Date, We will refund the Deposit, if applicable, and any other sums paid as soon as is reasonably possible, and in any event within 14 calendar days of cancellation.
14.1.2 If You cancel the Job after the 14 calendar day cooling off period has expired (or where it does not apply) and less than 7 calendar days before the Start Date, We will retain from the Deposit, if applicable, a sum to cover any net financial loss that We suffer due to the cancellation. We will refund the balance of the Deposit to You as soon as is reasonably possible, and in any event within 14 calendar days of cancellation. If Our net financial loss is more than the amount of the Deposit (and/or if no Deposit has been paid), We will invoice You for the shortfall and You will be required to make payment in accordance with Clause 6.
14.2 We may need to terminate the Agreement before the Start Date due to the unavailability of required personnel or materials, or due to the occurrence of an event outside of Our reasonable control.

15.3 For the purposes of this Clause 15 a breach of the Agreement will be considered ‘material’ if it is not minimal or trivial in its consequences to the terminating Party. In deciding whether or not a breach is material no regard will be had to whether it was caused by any accident, mishap, mistake or misunderstanding.
15.4 If at the termination date:
15.4.1 You have made any payment to Us (including, but not limited to, the Deposit, where applicable) for any Electrical Services We have not yet provided, these sums will be refunded to You as soon as is reasonably possible, and in any event within 14 calendar days of the termination notice. We may, however, deduct from such a refund (or charge You) reasonable compensation for the net costs We will incur as a result of your breaking the Agreement if We terminate it under sub-Clauses 15.2.1, 15.2.2, or 15.2.4;
15.4.2 We have provided Electrical Services that You have not yet paid for, the sums due will be deducted from any refund due to You or, if no refund is due, We will invoice You for those sums and You will be required to make payment in accordance with Clause 6.
