Business Terms and Conditions

Accurate terms and conditions which reflect your business processes can put your business in a much stronger trade position and provide certainty for yourself and your customers.

Instructing commercial solicitors to properly draft your terms of business not only provides clarity and peace of mind by setting out the provisions under which you want to do business, but also ensures that the terms of the contract are legally enforceable.

Standard Terms and Conditions usually addresses:

  • The nature of the products/services being provided;
  • Payment mechanisms including when invoices and payments are due;
  • Processes and penalties for late payments;
  • Customer and supplier obligations; and
  • Alternative Dispute Resolution mechanisms

As a result of the above, properly drafted terms and conditions can lead to better cashflow due to the precise payment mechanisms and processes. Further, if legal action is unavoidable to recover debts from your customers, your terms and conditions can put you in a strong position evidentially, whilst even providing the possibility of recovering late payment penalties and contractual interest on late payments.

This was my first experience using a solicitor, something I felt quite daunted about. Rothera Sharp (Greg and Petra) put me at ease and were very helpful.

Last year I experienced a car accident, as a front seat passenger. I put forward a personal injury claim with Rothera Sharp. From start to finish, my claim has been dealt with efficiently and professionally, and I have always felt my best interests were considered. All communications were made via letter or email to inform me of all further updates. My claim has now come to an end and I am very happy with the overall outcome. I would recommend Rothera Sharp for their service.

We cannot recommend Chris Powell of Rothera Sharp more highly. Mr Powell demonstrated the upmost professionalism with a high level of knowledge of the area for which he was representing us. Anyone needing representation/advice regarding the area of haulage will find that Chris Powell and Rothera Sharp are the best choice.

Easements: when could an interference arise with my ability to exercise a right of way?

The recent case of Vance & Vance v Collerton & Collerton has illustrated that if it is not unreasonable to insist on the continued luxury of a widely granted right of way, an actionable interference will occur even if the person benefiting from the right is left with reasonable access.
