2 How the Agreement is made between us
2.1 These Conditions apply to all Agreements and set out the entire agreement between you and us to the exclusion of all other terms and conditions (provided always that, for Domestic Customers, this provision does not affect your legal rights in relation to the Services and it is not intended to limit those rights in any way). You must ensure that you read and understand these Conditions because they will govern your dealings with us once an Agreement is formed as set out below.
2.2 If you place an order with us to receive the Services then that order is an offer from you to us to enter into an Agreement which we are free to either accept or reject at our discretion. An Agreement is formed (and these Conditions become binding on both parties) when we either: (a) confirm to you (either orally or in writing) that we have accepted your order; or (b) commence performance of the Services, whichever is the earlier. The Agreement may be subject to us undertaking an inspection of your Boiler at our first visit and determining that it meets our minimum standards. We reserve the right to reject the Agreement should the boiler not meet our minimum standards
3 Information about your services
3.1 The description of the Services shall be as set out on the Website from time to time. You are advised to review the Website to ensure that the Services you are ordering from us are suitable for your requirements.
3.2 We may, at any time and without notice to you: (i) change any of the advertising or product information materials referred to in Condition 3.1; (ii) make changes to the scope of the Services that we believe are necessary to ensure that they conform to any applicable safety or statutory requirements; and/or (iii) make minor modifications to the scope of the Services that we consider necessary or desirable (and which should not have any material adverse effect on the provision of the Services). Where we wish to make changes to the Services otherwise than as above, we will take reasonable steps to notify you of these changes.
4 What you pay
4.1 Charges in respect of the Service: Before we accept your order for the Services, we will inform you as to the price you will be charged based on the information which you have provided to us. In the case of a Boiler Service, this price will be based on the assumption that the Boiler Service can be completed 90 minutes. If we find upon arrival at your property that any of the information you have provided is incorrect or incomplete then we reserve the right to either cancel the Agreement or to revise the price accordingly – we will then inform you as to the new price and you may accept the revised price or cancel the Agreement with immediate effect and without charge.
4.1.1 Over-Run Charge: If the Boiler Service takes longer than 90 minutes to complete then in addition to the quoted charge we reserve the right to charge an overrun charge based on each 15 minutes we are required to remain on your premises, charged at our standard hourly rate for our engineers (rounded up to the next 15 minute block of time). This will be advised to you at the time.
4.1.2. Our Rates: Details of our charges are available by contacting us from time to time.
4.1.3 Parts:. Charged for parts will be advised to you as soon as it is practical.
4.2 Charges in respect of the Emergency Call-Outs and Repairs:
Charges for emergency call-outs and repairs will vary depending on which Services you have purchased from us, and in particular whether or not you have purchased an annual service plan for your Boiler and the specific inclusions and exclusions of such plan. The applicable call-out charge will be notified to you at the point you request for us to perform an emergency call-out, and any additional charges will be notified to you by our engineer prior to the work being performed.
4.3 GST: All Charges in respect of the Services are exclusive of GST (if applicable). We will, however, provide you with a GST inclusive figure when providing you with a quote for any Goods or Services and again when we issue an invoice to you.
4.4 Failed Appointment Charge: if we are unable to perform the Service or any Emergency Repairs due to some default on your part (including, where we are unable to gain access to your property on an agreed date) then we may, at our option, charge you the sum of £25 (the “Failed Appointment Charge”) this being a reasonable pre-estimate of the cost to us in seeking to perform the relevant services.
5 How you pay us
5.1 Payment: We will invoice you following the performance of the Service in respect of the relevant Charges. Customers who have an annual plan for Services will ordinarily be invoiced by renewal notice prior to, rather than on completion, of the Boiler Service. Unless otherwise notified to you, you will pay each of our invoices (in respect of the relevant Charges) within 14 days of the date of the invoice. However, we reserve the right to require you to pay the Charges in advance at the time you place the relevant order.
5.2 In addition to the standard Charges referred to above, we will invoice you following the performance of any Emergency Repairs in respect of the relevant Charges. Such Charges shall be payable in accordance with the payment terms referred to in Condition 5.1.
5.3 We shall be deemed to have received payment under the Agreement only on receipt of cash or cleared funds from you.
5.4 Without limiting any other rights or remedies we may have, if you do not pay us on time, we may do all or any of the following:
(a) cancel or suspend our performance of the Services and/or any outstanding quotations without notice to you until all outstanding amounts are paid in full;
(b) cancel any discount we previously offered to you in respect of the Services; and/or
(c) charge interest on the outstanding amount, calculated on a daily basis from the due date for payment up to the date of actual payment (whether before or after judgment). You must pay us this interest together with the overdue amount. The rate shall be 4% above the base lending rate of Natwest Bank from time to time.
6 Our Services for you
6.1 We shall:
(a) perform the Services; and
(b) upon request, use our reasonable endeavours to perform the required Emergency Repairs (in accordance with Condition 6.10), in each case subject to, and in accordance with, the terms of these Conditions.
6.2 We will only be obliged to provide the relevant Services during the Term if:
(a) your Boiler: (i) is a standard domestic boiler and it has not been modified (other than in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions); (ii) has been correctly installed and maintained; (iii) complies with any and all relevant laws, regulations and standards; and (iv) is of a make and model which is covered by our Services. Boilers will only be accepted into any annual service plan if they are in acceptable condition (and in any event less than 10 years old), but we may agree to service such boilers on an ad hoc basis subject to a satisfactory initial inspection and the provisos set out in this Condition 6.2;
(b) we are able to obtain any Parts required to perform the Services on reasonable commercial terms;
(c) it is safe and practicable for us to provide the Services at your property; and
(d) you have obtained any and all necessary consents and permissions required for us to provide the Services.
If we believe that you have failed to comply with any of the conditions set out above then we may cease to provide the Services with immediate effect, without any charge to you (otherwise than as set out in these Conditions) or any liability on our part.
6.3 In respect of annual service plans, the standard contract term is 12 months. This will automatically renew for further 12 month periods unless you inform us otherwise.
6.4 For annual service plan customers, we will notify you of a proposed date and a time during our normal operating hours and between 2 to 6 weeks prior to your Boiler Service, and also notify you of any changes to our Charges.
6.5 If the proposed appointment date is not convenient then we ask that you contact us well in advance of the propose date to arrange an alternative date.
6.6 We may terminate an Agreement at any time with immediate effect if you breach any term of these Conditions, or on one month’s notice without cause, without any charge to you or any liability on our part (other than to refund to you any Charges made in respect of Services which have not been provided as at the date of termination).
6.7 If we have agreed a date with you on which we are to provide the Boiler Service then:
(a) we will use our reasonable efforts to perform the relevant Boiler Service on that date (and within the window of time notified to you (if any)); and
(b) you must ensure that our engineer can gain access to your property so as to perform the Boiler Service. If you fail to do so and as a result we are unable to perform the relevant Services then we reserve the right to invoice you the Failed Appointment Charge in accordance with Condition 4.5.
6.8 All appointment dates and times are subject to availability and change although we will endeavour to notify you as early as possible if we are unable to make the relevant appointment date or time.
6.9 Your right to cancel: you may cancel the Agreement at any time by contacting us in writing.
(a) If the Agreement is cancelled under this Condition before your Boiler Service is performed and you have made any payment in advance then we will refund these amounts to you;
(b) If, however, the Agreement is cancelled after the Boiler Service has been performed (in accordance with the terms of the Agreement) then no refund is due to you; and you shall ensure that any outstanding invoices are paid in full in accordance with any credit terms provided by us; and
Where we repay you, we will use the same method of payment you used to pay (unless you agree otherwise) and we will not charge you any fees to repay you. If we are allowed to charge you for any Services we have provided we may either deduct this from what we repay you or require you to pay the amount to us.
6.10 If you need emergency repair services from us:
(a) If, during the Term, your Boiler fails to function correctly then you may call the emergency call out number as detailed on www.pomroy.je) to request the provision of Emergency Repairs.

(c) We will use our reasonable efforts to perform the necessary repairs to rectify any defect with your Boiler during our initial visit but if we are unable to do so, or we need to order Parts, then we will arrange for one or more follow-up visits as required. Details of any Charges applying to Emergency Repairs will depend on which annual service plan you have with us, and will be notified to you prior to the Emergency Repairs being carried out. Details of our annual service plans are set out on our Website.
6.11 We shall ensure that all of the engineers we use are either employed by us or have been approved by us and that in each case they have the necessary qualifications to perform the Services in accordance with these Conditions.
