Upon acceptance of this warrant, a binding contract (“the Contract”) shall be created between the Smarter Electrical LTD and the Client solely on these terms contained herein, including the terms contained in the Smarter Electrical LTD’s warrant.
The Client has represented the ability and capacity to pay for the works to be completed and must provide a suitable guarantee for payment if requested by the Smarter Electrical LTD.

Terms of Payment

They shall pay the amount of any progress claim within 30 days of its date unless otherwise agreed upon.
Lump-Sum Payment – The Client shall upon completion of the contracted works, pay the total contracted sum in full within seven days of receipt of invoice, less any deposit paid.

Work Schedule

At the time of acceptance of this warrant, the Client shall submit to the Smarter Electrical LTD the proposed work schedule for the execution of the works. If the Smarter Electrical LTD agrees to the work schedule, it shall form part of the contract and shall not be varied except following these terms. If a work schedule is not submitted or agreed upon, the Smarter Electrical LTD shall complete the works within a time which is reasonable in all circumstances.
Within fourteen (14) days after acceptance of this warrant (or as otherwise agreed), the Client shall give the Smarter Electrical LTD possession of sufficient of the site to enable the works to commence. After that, the Client shall provide the Smarter Electrical LTD possession of further parts of the site as and when required by the Smarter Electrical LTD to enable the Smarter Electrical LTD to execute works following the contract.
If the execution of the works by the Smarter Electrical LTD is delayed or interrupted because the Client fails to adhere to the agreed work schedule:
a) the Client shall not be entitled to defer payment of progress claims for goods manufactured or procured, or work is done, by the Smarter Electrical LTD in conformity with the agreed work schedule;
b) the Smarter Electrical LTD shall be entitled to add to the contract sum a storage charge equivalent to 1.5% per month of the value of goods procured or manufactured in conformity with the agreed work schedule;

d) The Smarter Electrical LTD shall be entitled to a logical extension of time to complete the works.
Cost Adjustment
If the works are completed within six months after acceptance of this warrant, then no cost adjustment shall apply. But if the tasks are not completed within that period, later each claim for payment submitted after that shall be subject to modification for rising and fall in the costs of labour and materials, calculated on the proven costs of labour and material increases or decreases.
