After we have completed the job we will require payment immediately by cash or cheque. At our discretion we may offer a card payment service, however there may be a small administration charge on card payments. Please ask before work is completed if you would like to clarify the charge. (typically 2.75% of the total bill).
In some circumstances we will invoice the client. In this situation the invoice will be sent by email.
The invoice is due immediately after the work has been completed. This will apply to all Landlords and letting agents and will take precedence over any terms that their company may have in force.
If payment is not received within 30 days then further action will be taken to recover money owing.
If for any reason you are unhappy with our staff, service or level of work, please contact myself, Richard Marks on 07500029453 to discuss in the first instance.
I will take a statement and investigate the complaint with any employee.
We will do everything within our power to resolve any complaints amicably and fairly.
