9. Your right to end the contract

9.1 Your rights when you end the Contract will depend on the Goods, whether they are defective, how we are performing and when you decide to end the Contract: 9.1.1 If the Goods are faulty or inaccurately described, you may have a legal right to end the Contract (or to get the Goods repaired or replaced or to get some or all of your money back), see clause 10 if you are a consumer and clause 11 if you are a business; 9.1.2 If you want to end the Contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do, see condition

9.2; and 9.1.3 If you are a consumer and have changed your mind about Goods, see condition

9.3. You may be able to get a refund if you are within the cooling-off period, but this may be subject to deductions and you will have to pay the costs of return of any Goods. 9.2 If you end the Contract for a reason set out at 9.2.1 to 9.2.5 below, the Contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any Goods which have not been provided. You may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are: 9.2.1 we have told you about an upcoming change to the Goods or these terms which you do not agree to; 9.2.2 we have told you about an error in the price or description of the Goods and you do not wish to proceed; 9.2.3 there is a risk that supply of the Goods may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control; 9.2.4 we have suspended supply of the Goods for technical reasons, or notify you we are going to suspend them for technical reasons, in each case for a period of more than 30 days; or 9.2.5 you have a legal right to end the Contract because of something we have done wrong. 9.3 If you are purchasing the Goods as a consumer, for most off-premises (e.g. at trade shows) or online Contracts to purchase Goods you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund. These rights, under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013, are explained in more detail in these terms.

9.4 When consumers do not have a right to change their minds. Your right as a consumer to change your mind does not apply in respect of any products which become mixed inseparably with other items after their delivery or which are made to the consumer’s specifications or are clearly personalised. For the avoidance of doubt, once any flooring is installed it will have become mixed inseparably, and so you will no longer have a right to change your mind.

Except as provided in this clause 11, we shall have no liability to you in respect of a product’s failure to comply with the warranty set out in clause

Before final installation, the product must be checked with the end user to ensure the correct product has been supplied, and that the end user is happy with the product. Additionally, the inspection of all pieces of the floor must be done before those pieces are installed. Carefully examine the flooring for colour, finish and quality before installing it. The installer must open several packs of the floor at a time to enable a good colour and grade mix across the installation, use reasonable selectivity when choosing the layout of the boards and hold out or cut off pieces with deficiencies, whatever the cause. If the product is deemed not acceptable for any reason, do not install it and contact Ted Todd immediately. Once a product has been laid and later discovered to be incorrect, or for any boards with defects or visual irregularities that should have been spotted at the time of installation, no financial assistance can be given, nor can the product be returned.
