On arrival at the address where locksmith services are to be provided our engineer will confirm the price of the locksmith services to be provided. This confirmed price is the price that you will pay. You may withdraw from this agreement if you deem any price increase from the provisional price to be excessive.
5. OUR LIABILITY TO YOU
5.1 We are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a direct and foreseeable result of our negligence in the performance of our locksmith services, but we are not responsible for any other loss or damage caused by the consumer.
5.2 If we are providing locksmith services in your property, we will make good any damage to your property caused by our negligence in the course of installation or performance. We will take all necessary precautions to avoid any damage to your property. However, in certain circumstances we may need to drill into a door, window, or frame or complete some minor woodwork to fit a new lock. In these circumstances the locksmith will make you aware of the work required before completing the locksmith services. We will always make good, i.e. filling any holes we have been required to drill in the performance of the locksmith services, but we are not responsible for any redecoration required, and you accept that minor redecoration may be a natural result of having products installed or removed or doors/windows opened, especially where your doors or windows are faulty or where woodwork has been required.
