In the unlikely event that our surveying department discovers that we cannot go ahead with this contract, we shall tell you why, in writing within 21 days of you signing and at the same time we shall return to you the value of any deposit which you have paid and after that neither of us will have any liability to the other.

ii) All our wood products are of a satisfactory quality although as wood is a natural product it can
vary in grain or colour.

iv) All our Wardrobe interiors are finished in Novanta Oakwood-effect interior.

v) For installation and safety purposes there may be a join in any material over 1,500mm.

iv) To meet the cancellation deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication concerning your exercise of the right to cancel before the cancellation period has expired.

v) If you cancel this contract within the cancellation period, we will reimburse to you all payments received from you unless you requested a survey during the cancellation period and the survey was conducted prior to receipt of your notification of cancellation (when a charge of £150.00 will be retained by us).

vi) We will make the reimbursement without undue delay, and not later than 14 days after the day on which we are informed about your decision to cancel this contract.

vii) We will make the reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event you will not incur any fees as a result of the reimbursement.

9. If you ask to cancel the contract after expiry of the cancellation period, we will consider agreeing but we estimate that we will incur the following costs, and cancellation will be subject to you paying the following charges within 7 days of us notifying you of the accepted cancellation:

i) if we have started manufacturing the goods, up to 50% of the contract price;

ii) if we have completed manufacture of the goods, up to 75% of the contract price;

Your Hammonds Guarantee

Your new Hammonds fitted furniture has the benefit of a manufacturer’s guarantee which covers the failure of materials purchased for 10 years.
Your guarantee will commence 7 days after the completion of your installation and only if you do not owe us any money under the contract. 

Once your fitter has reported that your installation is complete, you have 7 days to check over your furniture to ensure you are happy with everything and to contact us regarding any concerns you may have. Any issues reported after these 7 days will be accessed under the guarantee terms and once your balance has been settled under the terms of your contract. 

The Guarantee is subject to the following conditions: 
• The furniture has been installed by Hammonds in the U.K.
• You have properly cared for and used the goods and followed any instructions provided by us, particularly in the case of gloss and high sheen furniture.
• The furniture has been used for normal domestic purposes only.
• The guarantee is personal to you and is not transferable.
• The furniture has not been altered, or interfered with, by any other persons not authorised to do so by Hammonds.
• Any repair work must be undertaken by Hammonds or our appointed agent. This does not include the fitting/replacement of the items listed below which are not covered under our guarantee.
• Any parts removed during repair works that are subsequently replaced become the property of Hammonds. 

The guarantee does not cover: 
• Any damage caused by wear and tear.
• Natural wear and tear.
• Natural colour fading caused by prolonged exposure to direct sunlight.
• Movement of wardrobe infill or worktop caused by natural movement of the house’s structure for installations over 30 days old. This also includes settlement of furniture if fitted on top of carpet.
• Fitting of any small item replacements, for example, handles, hanging rails, etc.
• Electrical and light fittings, bulbs mirrors and glass.
• Door and drawer adjustments and caulking, refitting of drawers removed from drawer runners. • Accidental damage caused as a result of an unexpected and non-deliberate action.
• If the furniture is required to be removed from the room’s structure the guarantee does not cover re-decoration or damage to flooring. This will be the responsibility of the consumer to make good.
• All consumables required to replace faulty parts will be charged for; these include, but are not limited to, screws, filler, brackets, etc. 
• Any fitting issues reported outside of 30 days from original installation date

Please note: We shall at our discretion repair, replace or reinstall parts as required. Due to natural colour fading on your existing furniture there may be a slight colour variation in any items replaced which is out of Hammonds’ control.

Hammonds also offer an aftercare service. For a cost of £230 per room/visit, a Hammonds’ fitter can carry out any of the following work for you:
a All door and drawer adjustments.
b Replacement of any caulking required.
c Replacement of small items such as shelf pegs, hanging rails or hinge cases.
d Repair of accidental damage (parts are subject to an additional charge)
