Onerous Terms & Conditions

The two ways to offer contracts to members are

  1. A modified standard form i.e. JCT or NEC
  2. An in-house bespoke series of terms and conditions.

Members may consider that they have an opportunity to negotiate any order that the customer is seeking to impose upon them. 

Members who wish to negotiate clauses, on any specific matter, which tend to be provided using similar wordings, may wish to review this document.

This document provides commonly offered terms with an alternative form of words that members may find more acceptable.

Members are reminded that CONDITIONS tend to be things that need accommodating and are non-negotiable; whereas, TERMS are things that should be negotiable.

This resource will be updated as the law evolves and as terms and conditions revise to reflect a change in the working environment.
