3.0 Force Majeure

3.1 If circumstances reasonably beyond Integrated Pest Management Ltd control cause delay or prevent the service being carried out in accordance with the survey, then Integrated Pest Management Ltd shall be excused the performance or the punctual performance of the services, which may then have to be rescheduled for a future date.

10.1 This agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the client and Integrated Pest Management Ltd.

10.2 The client shall not be entitled to rely or to seek to rely upon any statement, warranty or representation made by or on behalf of Integrated Pest Management Ltd to the extent that such representation is inconsistent with these terms and conditions.

10.3 All work for the service will be subject to these terms and conditions which shall prevail over any inconsistent terms which may appear on the clients enquiry, order or other documents received by Integrated Pest Management Ltd from the client or which may be implied by law or trade, custom, practice or a course of dealing between the parties, all of which are hereby expressly excluded.  All orders are accepted and executed on the understanding that the client is bound by these conditions.

11.0 Guarantee Period

11.1 The stated guarantee period applies to the ‘exclusion of mice from inside the confines of the property’ and therefore excludes any mice activity/noises/droppings within wall cavities, pipe cavities, roof voids, floor cavities, behind bath panels and other such concealed areas.

11.2 The stated guarantee period is only valid if all of the recommendations/observations listed by the pest technician on the last sheet of the report have been promptly completed following completion of the proofing works and to good standard.

11.3 The stated guarantee period is only valid if all aspects of the proofing service were able to be completed by the pest technician and to his satisfaction – rooms/areas of the property omitted from the proofing service through the intervention of second/third parties or failure to co-operate with the reasonable requests of the pest technician will null and void the guarantee period for the property as a whole.

11.4 The introduction of any new mice entry points not previously present during the time of the proofing works – i.e. subsequent unit replacement, pipe routing etc. – will null and void the guarantee period.

11.5 The subsequent second/third party tampering of any of the proofing works carried out by the pest technician or the failure to allow adequate cure periods – as detailed at the top of the report sheet – will null and void the guarantee period.

11.6 The subsequent exposure of the proofed areas or proofing materials used during the service to unnecessary or excessive ‘wear and tear ‘outside of what is reasonable to expect or previously in place for the location will null and void the guarantee period.
