If you are not sure about anything, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

You should not engage any Tradesman or make any deposit or other payment to them without having conducted such checks to your full satisfaction.

Each of the provisions of this Clause shall be construed separately and independently of the others.
This Agreement shall be subject to the laws of England and the parties shall submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts.
