My name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Did she sign any terms and conditions please? Alex
Ok - does it say there that the guarantees will only be released after payment?
Ok - then you can insist they are given now. The contractor has to rely on the terms and conditions.
Unless it says otherwise then the products can have the guarantees given once installed.
That is what the agreement says.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please? Alex
Unless the contact says otherwise they can be requested now.
Only if the contract says they can be held, can they.
Otherwise if the contract does not say they are released after payment, then the contractor cant refuse to give them up
Does that clarify? Alex
No, it needs to be done with all reasonable skill and care. If the surveyor says that it is not or the building inspector fails it - then you do not.
He would in that case be in breach of contract.
If I could invite you to rate my answer before you go today please, otherwise the site does not credit me for the time spent with you today. Thanks and good luck. Alex
