Terms & Conditions Advice

Nearly every business requires a set of standard terms and conditions on which it contracts with its customers. In addition, businesses occasionally require a standard set of terms of purchase.

Terms and conditions are subject to the laws of contract and statutes such as the Unfair Contract Terms Act. In particular, where goods or services are being supplied to consumers, a wide range of laws apply to protect buyers and users so it is essential that the terms and conditions of a business take these regulations into account.

Glanvilles Commercial team can help you draft terms and conditions that will help you meet both your legal obligations and your business needs.

For further information, please contact our business solicitors in Chichester, Fareham or Havant. Alternatively, please fill in our online enquiry form and a member of our team will be in touch shortly.

Why choose our commercial law solicitors for advice about terms & conditions of trade?

We have a strong understanding the commercial risks and opportunities associated with putting in place your terms and conditions. In our uncertain commercial climate, this understanding has never been more vital. The terms on which you conduct business and sell products or services is essential. They ensure you get paid for your work on time, plainly set out the product or scope of service you intend to supply, and give you clear paths of resolution where disputes arise.

We can provide advice, draft and review services for your terms and conditions of sale and trade. We also often work closely with our commercial litigation and dispute resolution team to help businesses resolve issues if and when they do arise.

Our company and commercial law team includes Scott Richardson, an associate solicitor who works between our Chichester and Fareham offices. At our Chichester office, we are happy to offer start-ups, entrepreneurs and early stage businesses a free 30-minute consultation to discuss your legal needs. For more information, you can email Scott directly on scott.richardson@glanvilles.co.uk.

Our terms & conditions of trade expertise

Drafting standards terms & conditions of trade

Getting your terms and conditions drafted by a specialist commercial law solicitor can enable your business to trade confidently with minimal risk. We will personally get to know your business so that we can tailor our advice and recommend the ideal terms to fulfil your commercial goals. We can advise on matters such as:

  • Pricing
  • Payment terms, including when and how payment will be made and interest
  • Delivery terms, including when and how a product or service will be delivered
  • Dispute resolution terms for resolving issues
  • Limiting your liability
  • Data protection clauses

Failing to implement terms and conditions properly can have a detrimental effect on the operation of your business. Contracts, even if they are in writing and particularly those between business and consumer, may be unenforceable if they are poorly drafted or ambiguous. It is therefore essential to consult a specialist solicitor to ensure your contracts are carefully drafted and that your legal position is protected. It may just save you a fortune in legal fees later down the line.

Reviewing terms and condition of trade

You should consider updating your terms and conditions if your business, sector and/or market has fundamentally changed since they were originally written. Your terms & conditions should always reflect your business’ goals and values. If they are no longer fit for purpose, we can help you review and update your terms and conditions.

Commercial dispute resolution

Even the most cautious of businesses occasionally face a dispute. We work closely with our commercial litigation experts to assist businesses with a wide range of issues relating to terms & conditions of trade, including:

  • Breach of contract
  • Debt recovery
  • Consumer complaints
  • Conditions and warranties
  • Exclusions of liability
  • Data protection
  • Regulatory issues
  • Force majeure
