No variation of these Terms will be accepted unless agreed in writing by an authorised person of The Landlord Shop Ltd. We will not accept the inclusion of any alternative Terms by you which conflict with, alter or add to these Terms.
When you place an Order for a Service, this will be regarded as an offer by you to purchase the Service subject to these Terms and we shall not be obliged to accept your offer, at our discretion.

Prices and Payments
All prices are subject to VAT. We will send you our invoice by email, attached as a pdf.
We will not supply Reports or Certificates to you until payment has been received in full.
Services are invoiced at the price prevailing at the time of your Order.
We reserve the right to vary our prices from time to time.

We do not currently accept card payments but payment can be made by Cheque or Bank Transfer (BACS). Our engineers do not accept cash.
Time allocation for jobs
We will arrange approximate appointment times with you or the occupier of the property being inspected. Sometimes it may be necessary to re-schedule an appointment due to factors beyond our control. If it is necessary to do this, we will attempt to contact you or your tenant to try and re-schedule another appointment as soon as possible at a mutually convenient time.
If you are unable to keep a service appointment please contact us to re-book the appointment on 07866 022380 as soon as possible. Cancellations made less than 24 Hours before the appointment is due will incur a fee being payable.
Gas and electrical supply, access to electricity and gas meters is ESSENTIAL for all jobs carried out. Please ensure this is available and that token meters have credit.
Call out fees for repairs and quotes on repairs
We charge a call out fee when asked to visit a property to carry out repairs, quote on repairs or carry out other minor works. In many cases we are able to complete the repair within this call out fee but if not then appropriate further charges will be made. For this reason it is essential that we have correct access, supply etc so that we are able to complete the job. Call out fees are payable as soon as an engineer attends the property, regardless of the outcome of the visit.
When instructed to carry out an EPC, we will assume that a valid EPC is not already available on the EPC Register, or that if one is present, it is the clients choice to replace it for any reason. EPCs can be downloaded at anytime by visiting the EPC Register.
Gas Safety Certificates
We cannot carry out a gas safety certificate if there is no gas credit on at a property with token meters – please ensure gas is on before we visit. We cannot also carry out gas safety certificates on boilers not working.
The cost of any remedial works, repairs or parts needed for any fault, which is found before or during a boiler service or Gas Safety Certificate will be reported to the responsible person. Any maintenance, repairs or remedial work is your responsibility and does not form part of a basic boiler service. Such work will need to be completed at your cost by our repair technicians.
Legionella Risk Assessments
Hot water should be on and up to temperature for the assessment so we can prove hot water maximum temperatures are sufficient. A note saying “turn on hot water and review assessment” will show on reports if it is not. The visit and report is still chargeable regardless of if hot water is on when we attend.
We will provide a quote for electrical remedial work in conjunction with an Electrical Installation Condition Report or for works related to Gas and repair of gas appliances. We reserve the right to not to enter into contracts and no reason need be given by The Landlord Shop.
The agreed final quote represents a written contract for the exact work to be completed.
Any agreement made verbally is not covered by the contract unless it has been written into said contract. The agreement is made between The Landlord Shop Ltd and the client. The client is identified as the name on the quotation.
Any quote or estimate is subject to revision if there are any changes to the nature or extent of the requested work. This may apply to both labour and materials. However the quote will not be amended without consultation with the client.
All quotes are valid for 28 days from issue.
