They supersede any other terms appearing elsewhere and override and exclude any other terms stipulated, incorporated or referred to by the Customer, whether in the order or instructions or in any negotiations or in any course of dealing established between Go Plumbers Ltd and the Customer, except where these terms form part of a schedule to a signed Contract between the Customer and Go Plumbers Ltd, in which event these terms apply only to the extent not inconsistent with that Contract.
2.2 The Customer agrees that these terms, estimate or work authorisation shall constitute the entire understanding for the duration of work (as detailed in Section 4 below).
2.3 No modification to these terms shall be effective unless made by an express written agreement between the Operative and the Customer. The signing on behalf of Go Plumbers Ltd, of any documentation of the Customer, shall not imply any modification of these terms.

The Customer will be liable for cost of any materials ordered prior to cancellation.
3.3 Once Works have commenced and should it become clear that further unforeseen work is required in order to complete the Works, the Engineer will make all reasonable efforts to contact the Customer to advise of the extra costs of these required additional works. If the Customer is non-contactable, the Engineer will proceed with the required additional works only on the basis that in stopping the work, it would hold the job up and prevent a timely completion. The cost of any required, additional works will be added to the final invoice balance.
