Greetings!

Last week's survey

In the last week's survey , we asked - Have your terms and conditions in your contract been formally checked by a solicitor to ensure they are binding?

  

Yes:  34% 

No:    50%
Not sure: 16%

  • Are any of our terms and conditions legally binding..... pretty much no. Unless some one goes to the length on drafting and formalising a personal guarantee that is signed, co signed and witnessed by power of attorney. you got next to nothing more than some words on a page there is always some one else who has the budget probably cause they never pay anyone other than legal team who's on payroll that is prepared to spend exponential amounts over and above what the original job was worth just to 'prove they were right' or some other hidden agenda. but on the plus side having terms and conditions does make us all look more professional.
  • Maybe best to have a name and shame listing on your website to warn your subsribers of printers and signage companies who don't pay their bills or string contractors out to 90 days plus because it's usually not worth taking these companies to court anyway!! My wish is that I was forwarned of their payment practices prior to doing business with them.I really don't have the time or money to chase people who are professionals at not paying their bills. (Ed note: We investigated this and found such a list to be illegal - sorry, would love to do this).
  • We have terms and conditions and we do use them for all big jobs. these terms and conditions are built according to our experinces and gradtualy complited but never be checked by a solicitor.
  • We copied ours from another company, so not sure at all.
  • I suspect that they may be legally binding but unless it is a large amount one has to ask if it is worth pursuing due to time, expense and hassle tied up in chasing a bad debt, especially for small companies.
