PLEASE READ CAREFULLY AND AGREE AS A MATTER OF COMMISSIONING
PLEASE ASK ANY QUESTIONS



Initial enquiries are guided by phone and email and continued through site visits without unanounced visits or mail. All plans and proposals can be provided if required but opinion, advice and representative liaison are of equal significance.

The Consultancy undertakes and supports creative new design contexts, changes, refurbishments upgrades, remeliorative work and retrospectives together with detailed advocacy in proposing the most effective appropriate uses of existing buildings, new buildings, sites and land.

The Consultancy prefers not to take on as clients those who choose not to pay fees on time or who seek to commission public inquiries having previously refused our Applications quotations.

In producing existing and proposed plans the Consultancy provides these in accordance with client wishes, notwithstanding verification at Applications stages. Wherever third party or owner or agent representation acts with these plans bearing the Consultancy's keys local planning and other authorities need to inform the Consultancy immediately.

The Consultancy transfers pdf design and plans copyrights of its own, subject to fees having been paid, the Consultancy removing our professional keys, and all measurements being checked before such use. Otherwise in this respect it exerts a restricted design and plans copyright and requires local authorities and all others to inform us once such plans are in use. The Consultancy itself uses other parties plans with the owners permissions' stated offer to pay any design copyrights that are required. This is in order for the Consultancy to be protected from claims of contravening copyrights.

All measurements on plans must be checked before any uses made from them.

The Consultancy does not accept any prior commission conditions whatsoever to the preparation and execution of commissions, including time, or any during their execution. Clients should appreciate they are in a development context which will be influenced by government decision making processes often requiring the most detailed information and consideration.


No win no fee advice and services are never provided. Most commissions are now formalised in stages so that either substantial partial or total payments are paid at no longer than one month, as per fee proposal. The Consultancy considers it not good enough for clients to have the potential to restrict our ability to service other and existing clients and such fee avoidance will be proceeded with to accountants and through the small claims court. Such clients will have to pay in advance in future to utilise any existing pdf plans; these latter can not be utilised in any way until their commissions are completely fulfilled and paid for. If clients are in financial difficulties they only have to contact us immediately to make arrangements.

All Plans and Planning Issues Services may be the subject of time inconveniences because of the difficulties of assembling, processing and utilising information in detail.
This may apply even to fee proposals quotations.
All plans when posted are sent recorded post.

Consultancy Plans, Pdfs, Drawings, Proposals and Designs or derivatives thereof can not be used or copied from concerning any CONTINUING planning or building control applications, needs or permissions, nor any building works, for the same or applied to any other property without formal notification to the Consultancy and the acknowledged awareness and permission by the Consultancy without which a formal breach of copyright is involved with legal action unless the consultancy is formally notified of and gives written permission for such, with all existing fee proposal payments having been paid and/or are paid in advance. PLEASE CONTACT THE CONSULTANCY TO AVOID ISSUES. Additionally all measurements must be checked on site.

CAD Files are not transferred to any party concerning planning, building control or listed building Applications

Similarly Consultancy plans can not, nor any part of them, be used or utilised in any way for other similar buildings, particularly listed buildings. Although for other buildings the Consultancy is willing to utilise its copyright plans and designs ownership for further fee payments and/or for services to those interested. Owners and tenants of these properties must contact the Consultancy and seek its formal approval in writing for which a fee will be required.

If another previous site/ buildings plans provider can not be contacted to ask permission for our use of their plans copyright by our client, our client must assume all responsibilities, including financial, for our use of them in any way.

Non-payments and non-liaison of fees are referred immediately to our accountants, HMRC for reasons of VAT and the small claims court, the clients concerned being required to pay all professional and administration fees.

Client address must be supplied.
Clients must maintain liaison in respect of all communications at all times.

Ascribed verbal assumptions can not be confirmed in being hearsay, of unsuitable evidence or of any kind of representation.
It is the responsibility of clients to agree and abide by written fee proposals.
It is stressed that fees must be paid promptly for any further definition or work to progress, for minor modifications these may be waived but there will be no continuity of further work progress. All fees are staged to all specific work stages and changes to such will require time costs.

Clients must know of thelselves whatever courses of action they wish to undertake; the Consultancy advises on issues and does not lead clients into making decisions.
If clients wish to halt or postpone commissions they are liable for costs incurred at that time.
The Consultancy is not liable to reimburse clients in any way for any of their time spent with regard to any assistance they give at any time.

Most commissions first involve fee proposals of payment in advance for computer aided design measured scaled existing floor space and elevation plans and secondly the payment for the derived proposals plans and thirdly that for submission, registration and management of Applications, often with lower initial fees and consequent success fees. For these fee stages to be changed clients must have the Consultancy's formal written approval.

It is stressed that fees for plans, particularly Retrospectives, must be paid precisely as agreed, separate from Application submission; any changes can be made subsequently and these if other than minor may involve changes involving additional draughting costs as per case and extent.

In all proposals, compliance and retrospective issues and for enforcement issues particularly, clients undertake responsibility for their actions or lack of them.
For all enforcement compliance and retrospective requirements all plans costs will be fully paid for and copyrights respected before proceeding to any Applications or other requirements whatsoever. The Concultancy is not liable for producing any further work until these costs are met.

The Consultancy is not able to act primarily as a courteous continuous information or quotations service and may consider to restrict such demands.

All quotations last for a period of 3 weeks unless specifically renewed by the Consultancy - after 3 weeks it is assumed that circumstances may have changed and new quotations may have to reflect this.

First Plans are paid for by clients on delivery, otherwise Plans Applications are paid by clients in the ratio of one half on submission of Applications to Councils and the other half on registration of Applications. Pre Applications are paid in full on submission. Changes to Plans and (Pre) Applications are undertaken usually without cost if minor.
Success fee components can be attractive components to fee proposals in reducing client risk of unrewarding higher costs but still apply at any time subsequently if the Consultancy's work in whole or part is in any way utilised to obtain any type of development value.

Success fee components can be attractive components to fee proposals in reducing client risk of unrewarding higher costs but still apply at any time subsequently if the Consultancy's work in whole or part is in any way utilised to obtain any type of development value.
All commissions that are of retail or plans nature are to be paid on delivery.
The Consultancy is a business and does not, without written confirmation, give voluntary opinion, acquiessence or services.


Payments of fees invoices can be staged throughout commissions specifically through the written fee proposals and must be paid promptly - certainly before any further assistance or work can be given.
The Consultancy operates very much on a 'cash on the nail' ethic - clients are expected to pay promptly initially forany  plans and any first services and then on submission and registration of Application with any subsequent success fees negotiated. A positive relationship is expected from clients.

The reason is that restrictions on the consultancy's cash flows are detrimental, reducing further contiguous project workloads and consultancy commissions and effectively blocking other clients.
Clients are expected to understand that the issue of client interest should be indivisible.

The party whose fees are not promptly paid on invoicing will be prompted to accept credit card payment of fees otherwise creating a net loss to the consultancy and its accountants which could be substantial.
In these situations a credit card payment will be set up, for a small service fee of 2% of the total, by the consultancy to help the client facilitate payment agreed in their fee proposal.

In giving helpful quotations it is expected that clients also fully play their part.

Retainments carry longer term restrictions of Consultancy costs but are welcomed to expand the client base; any increase over previous costs are unlikely for a few years and a considerable amount of representational support and preparation is included as further becomes known of client sites, buildings, operations and modus vivendi needs and opinions.

The consultancy reserves the right to consider whether prospective clients are likely to be able to absorb costs, particularly with regard to retrospective issues fees and to decline providing such client services without such written evidence or unless detailed flexible creditpayments are undertaken in advance.
Advisory fees are required to be paid before any design work or drafting begins.
Drafting fees are required to be paid before validation of (pre)Applications.
Applications fees are required to be paid on submission of agreed Applications and include one redesign element through the processing of the Application subsequently.
Extensive redesign may need additional drafting time fees.
Clients are required to liaise at all times.
There is no prior agreement of the Consultancy to have fees paid only at the end of commissions other than of quoted success fees.
Success fees are deemed acknowledged to be fully appreciated by clients through fee proposals and may be described as to when and how they are to be paid. Any queries must be raised in writing by the clients on receiving fee proposals.
The Consultancy does not undertake commissions without bona fide fee positions being understood and this is held to be the responsibility of the clients..

(WE TAKE IT FOR GRANTED YOU MAY WISH TO OWN YOUR LOCATION ADDRESSED DESIGN PLANS FOR YOUR OWN SUBSEQUENT USE ON SITE
(AS PDF COPIES ONLY, PLEASE SEE BELOW PARAGRAPHS 18-20)
(PLANS ALONE ARE RETAIL COMMISSIONS WITH PAYMENT ON RECEIPT)
FOR USE ELSEWHERE THEY REMAIN THE COPYRIGHT DESIGN OF THE CONSULTANCY AND CAN NOT BE SO USED WITHOUT WRITTEN PERMISSION
(Civic Plans are multi-functional, other than for technical issues - Plans commissions are needed for information decision-making purposes, detailing designs and changes, discussions to builders, for estimating purposes and also subsequently being expanded to include building regulations submissions - all this without any necessary planning context.)

An initial complimentary project discussion, not necessitating site visits, is recommended
for your part and is mandatory for ours.

Any complimentary site visits, if such are offered, relate only to new clients' commissioning interest.
Such prospective clients are advised to make arrangements to remain on site past meeting times
if delays are encountered, no new complimentary visits being offered.
In other respects a site visit will be charged at one hour's costs.

No written confirmations of verbal prospective opinions can be given without research.
Fees payments can be staged by agreement, so do please ask.
All fees of any kind are to be paid as agreed per fee proposal unless agreed otherwise in
writing by the Consultancy.
The consultancy considers that it is not advisable to do subsequent work without evidence
of good faith in payment or advance contingency costs fees.
The consultancy's opinion can not be represented, retrospectively or prospectively, by
any other party.
The consultancy's pdf plans, even as a base map, may not be used without the consultancy's
knowledge and its own removal of its keys at hours costs.
The consultancy's plans and design copyright exists to all issues for which these were
commissioned.
All plans measurements must always be checked on site and corrected by the proposed user
before use of any kind.
The Consultancy looks forward to a healthy and discerning business relationship with clients.

ALL THE CONSULTANCY'S WORKS ARE COPYRIGHT AND NONE CAN BE USED WITHOUT WRITTEN APPROVAL.
ATTEMPTS TO BARGAIN BEFORE PAYMENTS ARE DUE ARE NOT APPRECIATED.
THEY ARE NOT THE WAY THE CONSULTANCY DOES BUSINESS. FEE PROPOSALS AND PAYMENTS ARE REQUIRED. FLEXIBLE CARD PAYMENTS ARE OFFERED FOR A SMALL SERVICE CHARGE.

THIS INCLUDES ALL PREVIOUS DESIGNS AND FOR PLANNING PERMISSIONS PREVIOUSLY OBTAINED.

4/UNPAID INVOICES ON REGISTRATION OF APPLICATIONS WILL MEAN THAT THOSE PLANNING AUTHORITIES CONCERNED WILL BE TOLD ALL DESIGN AND PLANS COPYRIGHTS ARE BEING EXERCISED AND THAT LIAISON, NEGOTIATIONS AND MODIFICATIONS OF PROPOSALS AND DESIGNS WILL NOT BE CONSULTANCY FINANCED-THE CONSULTANCY RETAINING THE RIGHT TO PURSUE DEBTS -AND THAT THEY SHOULD CONSIDER INSTEAD WHERE FEASIBLE DETAILED CONDITIONING.

WE WOULD RATHER NOT ACCEPT COMMISSIONS WITHOUT SUCH A CONTEXT AND INVITE PROSPECTIVE CLIENTS TO AIR AND RAISE ALL ISSUES IN ADVANCE AND TO REMOVE THEIR  INTEREST IN THE CONSULTANCY'S SERVICES WHEN APPLICABLE.
PROMPT PAYMENT OF FEES IS ALSO VIEWED AS A CAPACITY TO DEAL MEANINGFULLY WITH PLANNING AUTHORITIES AND PERMISSIONS CONDITIONS.

DOES NEED AT ALL TIMES TO BE KEPT FULLY INFORMED BY CLIENTS IF IT IS TO PROVIDE SUFFICIENT LIAISON.
CORPORATE CLIENTS ARE THOUGHTFULLY REMINDED THEY SHOULD CONSIDER RETAINMENT, CONTINUOUS BUSINESS REPRESENTATION OR LIMITED COMMISSIONING FOR THE REPRESENTATIVE PROFESSIONAL INVOLVEMENT OF THE CONSULTANCY.
 
 
THIS CONSULTANCY DOES NOT WISH TO OBSTRUCT A CLIENT'S BASIC RIGHT TO SUBMIT PLANNING APPLICATIONS TO PERSONAL AND BUSINESS REQUIREMENTS THEY CONSIDER JUSTIFIED NOT LEAST IN TERMS OF A COMMON SENSE APPROACH AND AS A BASIS FOR REFINEMENTS.

CLIENTS ARE ABLE AND INDEED EXPECTED TO DIRECT THEIR APPLICATIONS AND PLANS CONTENTS
EXCLUSIVELY TO THEIR REQUIREMENTS AND ARE FURTHER EXPECTED TO GIVE DETAILS, IF NECESSARY BY ROUGH SKETCH DIAGRAMS. 
HOWEVER IT MUST BE REALISED THAT LOCAL GOVERNMENT AND AGENCY AUTHORITY MECHANISMS ARE USUALLY NOT RELATED TO DEAL WITH PRIVATE DEMANDS IN TERMS OF PLANNING APPLICATIONS.
NEITHER CAN IT BE ASSUMED THAT THEY WILL LIAISE WITH ANY SUFFICIENT TIME TO MODIFY PLANNING APPLICATIONS BY AGREEMENT NOR TO BE
ABLE TO LIAISE EFFECTIVELY TO GIVE SUFFICIENT SERVICE LIAISON.
 

CLIENTS SHOULD REALISE THAT ALL APPLICATIONS CARRY A RISK OF REFUSAL RELATING TO THE PARTICULAR
CIRCUMSTANCES INVOLVED AND THAT THEY COMMISSION APPLICATIONS SPECIFICALLY IN THEIR OWN INTEREST THROUGH THEIR OWN INITIATIVE AND AT THEIR OWN RISK WITHOUT ENCOURAGEMENT FROM THE CONSULTANCY.
ALL THIS WITH A HUGE EFFECT ON THE REAL ECONOMY NOTWITHSTANDING CENTRAL GOVERNMENT ADVICE. 
THEY MAY REQUIRE SUBSTANTIAL ADDITIONAL FUNDS OF APPLICANTS IN PREAPPLICATION OR SIMPLE DISCUSSIONS FEES WHICH OF THEMSELVES ARE NEITHER DEFINITIVE NOR BINDING TO APPLICATIONS DECISIONS.
 

EVEN WITH THE GOODWILL OF CLIENTS, ALTERATIONS OR REPORT SUPPLEMENTS TO PLANS APPLICATIONS CAN NOT
EASILY BE FACILITATED AT 'HOURS NOTICE' WITHOUT DISRUPTION TO PROGRAMMES INCURING ADDITIONAL COSTS ALTHOUGH BEST EFFORTS ARE ALWAYS SUCCESSFULLY MADE.
 
 
CLIENTS ARE REQUIRED TO COME TO AND MAKE THEIR OWN DECISIONS AS TO THE RELATIVE MERITS OR OTHERWISE FOR THEIR INTERESTS AT ALL TIMES AS TO WHETHER TO PROCEED TO ACCEPT ADVICE OR TO PREPARE AND SUBMIT PLANNING OR OTHER APPLICATIONS.
CLIENTS REMAIN THE EFFECTIVE DRIVING FORCE OF COMMISSIONS AT ALL TIMES.
IN WHATEVER CONTEXT CLIENTS REPRESENT THEMSELVES THEY ARE EXPECTED TO MAINTAIN IMMEDIATE CONTINUOUS REPRESENTATION WITH THE PLANNING AUTHORITY AND OURSELVES.
THERE IS ALWAYS AN ELEMENT OF RISK AS OF MOST ELEMENTS OF OUR SOCIETY AND NOT LEAST THAT ASSOCIATED WITH THE FORMULATION AND OUTCOME OF PLANNING APPLICATIONS, RECOMMENDATIONS OR ADVICE.
CLIENT ISSUES ARE IN MOST CASES USUALLY ASSOCIATED WITH OR INFLUENCED BY PROFIT AND/OR CAPITAL GAINS AND INVESTMENT DECISIONS.
PLANNING FACTORS CAN NOT BE ASSUMED TO BE SYSTEMATIC EITHER IN APPROACH OR EFFECT.
IN SHORT CLIENTS ARE REQUIRED TO ASSUME RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEIR DECISIONS AS TO HOW TO PROCEED AT ANY AND ALL STAGES OF PLANNING AND CONSULTANCY PROCESSES AND FOR THE FACT THAT THEY ARE EFFECTIVELY INSTRUCTING THE CONSULTANCY AT ALL TIMES.
 

WE WELCOME THE OPPORTUNITY FOR CLIENTS TO ACHIEVE LOWER COSTS THROUGH
REPRESENTING THEMSELVES OR JOINTLY WITH OURSELVES AND IN ACTING PRIMARILY AS THEIR OWN AGENTS FOR WHICH WE WILL WILLINGLY SUPPLY ALL PLANS, PROPOSALS AND DESIGNS.
WHERE CLIENTS THEMSELVES JOINTLY PARTICIPATE OR PROCEED WITH PLANS WE HAVE SUPPLIED THEY MUST MAINTAIN CONTINUOUS LIAISON WITH THE RELEVANT AUTHORITIES AND BE ABLE TO GIVE SUFFICIENT TIME FOR ANY MODIFICATIONS REQUIRED TO BE PRESENTED. 
 
 
CLIENTS ARE REQUIRED TO GIVE ACCURATE INFORMATON AT ALL TIMES AND ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR PROVIDING ALL INFORMATION ON AND REQUISITE LIAISON WITH SITE OWNERSHIPS AND ANY OTHER PARTIES WITH ANY INTEREST IN THE RELEVANT PROPERTY OR LAND.
CLIENTS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR KEEPING INFORMED OF AND SERVING NOTICE TO NEIGHBOURING PROPERTIES UNDER THE PARTY WALL ACT.
IF ASKED TO DO SO BY CLIENTS THE CONSULTANCY WILL QUOTE TO ACT IN THIS RESPECT. 
 

INACCURATE OR INADEQUATE INFORMATION MAY SERVE TO INVALIDATE ADVICE AND
PERMISSIONS OBTAINED.
CLIENTS ARE EXPECTED TO MAINTAIN CONTINUOUS, FULLY BRIEFED VERBAL AND WRITTEN LIAISON WITH THE CONSULTANCY AT ALL TIMES.
WE WELCOME THE USE OF AGENTS.
CLIENTS ARE DIRECTLY RESPONSIBLE FOR PROMPT PAYMENT OF COUNCIL APPLICATIONS FEES BEFORE EVEN PRELIMINARY COUNCIL LIAISON WITH OURSELVES CAN BEGIN.
CLIENTS WILL INITIALLY BE REMINDED TO DO THIS AFTER WHICH IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE CLIENT, ALSO CONCERNING THE PROMPT PAYMENT OF CONSULTANCY RELATED FEES, TO ASSUME THAT PROGRESS IS NOT FEASIBLE WITHOUT SUCH.
WHENEVER CLIENTS EVEN IN PART REPRESENT THEMSELVES THEY MUST LIAISE CONTINUOUSLY AS A PRIORITY WITH THE PLANNING AUTHORITY AND OURSELVES.
NO CONSULTANCY LIAISON SERVICE WILL BE PROVIDED OTHER THAN THROUGH A SPECIFIC COMMISSION TO DO SO.
IN SUCH CIRCUMSTANCES THE PLANNING AUTHORITY MUST BE REQUESTED BY THE CLIENT TO CONTINUOUSLY LIAISE DIRECTLY THROUGH THEMSELVES.

 
THE ISSUE NOT ALWAYS FULLY UNDERSTOOD BY VARIOUS PARTIES IS THAT OPEN, SIMPLE STRAIGHTFORWARD HONESTY AND IMMEDIATE DIALOGUE IS THE ONLY PROPER OR APPROPRIATE WAY FORWARD TOGETHER WITH FULL DISCLOSURE OF PERTINENT OWNERSHIP AND REPRESENTATIVE INTERESTS, AN ISSUE OUR CLIENTS ARE, OF COURSE, FULLY CONVERSANT WITH.

 
CLIENTS ARE FREE AND ENCOURAGED TO APPROACH THE CONSULTANCY TO SEEK ON THEIR BEHALF TO KEEP APPLICATIONS TO BE PENDING BY THE RELEVANT COUNCILS CONCERNED OR TO HAVE THEM RESUBMITTED.
FLEXIBILITY FOR THE APPLICATIONS PROCESS IS A KEY CONSULTANCY CONCERN BUT WHERE CLIENTS CHOOSE NOT TO PROCEED AS STATED THE CONSULTANCY'S COSTS ARE EXPECTED TO BE PAID.

 
NO CLAIMS FOR THE CONTINUATION OF SERVICES, THOUGH, CAN BE ENTERTAINED THAT ARE NOT FEASIBLE IN PRACTICE THROUGH NON PAYMENT OF ANY COUNCIL OR ANY CLIENT RELATED CONSULTANCY FEES.
WHERE CLIENTS HAVE PREVIOUSLY BEEN EXTREMELY LATE TO PAY PREVIOUS COUNCIL FEES THERE WILL EXIST NO PRESUMPTION OF SUCH PAYMENTS BEING MADE WITHOUT SPECIFIC RECEIPTS, WHICH CONSULTANCY SERVICES MUST AWAIT TO MAINTAIN THE GOODWILL OF COUNCILS.
 
 
 
IT IS SOMEWHAT UNFORTUNATE THAT SOME PLANNING AUTHORITIES NOW REQUIRE EXTRA FEES TO LIAISE PRIOR TO APPLICATIONS. 
IT IS EQUALLY UNFORTUNATE THAT THE PLANNING PORTAL DOES NOT GIVE DIRECT DIGITAL INPUTS TO RELEVANT LOCAL PLANS POLICIES FOR INDIVIDUAL AND BUSINESS APPLICATIONS, WHICH WOULD QUITE DRAMATICALLY REDUCE TIME, COSTS AND UNCERTAINTIES.
 
 
 


FURTHER FEE POINTS

WITHOUT SUCH THE CONSULTANCY CAN NOT CONSIDER WHETHER IT IS FEASIBLE TO ENLARGE THE SERVICE LEVELS PREVIOUSLY ENVISAGED WHEN FEE PROPOSALS WERE ORIGINALLY AGREED, WITHOUT ALLOCATING ADDITIONAL COSTS.
CLIENTS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE REQUISITE PROMPT PAYMENT OF CONSULTANCY FEES. 
 
 
SPECIFICALLY THE CONSULTANCY DOES NOT AT ANY TIME WISH TO ACT FOR ANY OVERSEAS COOPERATIVE FUNDING NOR OTHERWISE THAN DIRECTLY FOR AGENTS OR OWNERSHIPS WHATSOEVER NOT SPECIFICALLY IDENTIFIED AND TRANSPARENT PRIOR TO AGREEING TO THE VERY EARLIEST DISCUSSIONS AND MEETINGS OPPORTUNITIES.
THE CONSULTANCY DOES NOT WISH TO ACT IN PRIOR IGNORANCE OF ANY AND ALL REPRESENTATIVES, AGENTS, FUNDERS, LEASEHOLD AND FREEHOLD OWNERSHIPS OR OF ANY OTHER PARTCIPANTS, PARTIES OR RELEVANCE.
SPECIFICALLY, INITIAL SITE VISITS AND APPRAISALS COMMISSIONS DO NOT CARRY A COMMITMENT TO OFFER FURTHER OR OTHER SERVICES FOLLOWING THE INTRODUCTION OF NEW OWNERSHIP OR REPRESENTATIVE INFORMATION.
THE CONSULTANCY HAS NO COMMITMENT TO OFFER SERVICES OTHER THAN FOR THOSE FOR WHICH IT WISHES TO DO SO AND RESERVES THE RIGHT TO DECLINE TO OFFER SERVICES IN ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. 
 
 
 
STANDARD QUOTATIONS ARE AVAILABLE FOR 'STANDARD' WORKS AND PROPERTIES WHERE DETAILING IS NOT A SPECIFIC ISSUE.
IF CLIENTS HAVE BEEN REFERRED BY PLANNING DEPARTMENTS TO THE PROSPECTIVE USE OF PLANNING CONSULTANTS AS TO THE DEGREE OF INFORMATION REQUIRED OR OF PROSPECTIVE SUCCESS OR OTHERWISE THE CONSULTANCY REQUIRES A STANDARD SITE VISIT APPRAISAL QUOTATION AND PERHAPS STAGED FURTHER QUOTATIONS TO MAKE ADEQUATE PROVISION FOR EFFECTIVELY REDUCING COSTS TO BOTH PARTIES.

 
STANDARDISED QUOTATIONS CAN ALSO BE BEST ADAPTED FOR MOST SERVICES IF SUFFICIENT INFORMATION CAN BE PROVIDED BY ENQUIRERS.
QUOTATIONS CAN ALSO PROBABLY BE STANDARDISED IF CLIENTS WISH TO COMMISSION TO THEIR OWN REQUIREMENTS AND DEGREES OF FLEXIBILITY.
IN MOST RESPECTS THIS IS USUALLY THE CHEAPEST WAY TO STAGE SERVICES PROVIDING THE MOST EFFECTIVE CONTROL OF CLIENT COSTS. 
 
 
DISCRETE CONFIDENTIAL APPRAISALS DO NOT HAVE TO IDENTIFY PROPERTIES TO PLANNING AUTHORITIES NOR THE PROSPECTIVE INTENTIONS OF CLIENTS.
COMPLETE CONFIDENTIALITY MAY STILL PERMIT FAIRLY DETAILED DEFINITIONS OF PROBABILITIES FOR SUCCESSFUL DEVELOPMENT AND CAN LEAD FORWARD TO SENSITIVE SOUNDINGS AND PROCEDURES.
MANY CLIENTS PREFER NOT TO COMMIT TOO MUCH TO PARTICULAR OPTIONS PREFERRING TO KEEP THESE OPEN AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. 
 
 
WE FIRMLY RECOMMEND SITE VISIT APPRAISALS AS THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAY TO FACILITATE FREE DETAILED QUOTATIONS FOR PROSPECTIVE OR EXISTING ISSUES AND AS A VERY COSTEFFECTIVE SUBSEQUENT INCLUSION TO ANY SERVICE COMPONENTS.
A STANDARD QUOTATION IS GIVEN FOR NEARLY ALL SUCH INCLUSIVE OF PRELIMINARY LIAISON WITH PLANNING AND OTHER DEPARTMENTS CONCERNED. IT MAY BE POSSIBLE TO VISIT THESE DEPARTMENTS IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING THE SITE VISIT AS PART OF THIS QUOTATION. IF NOT A CHARGE OF ONE HOUR COULD BE QUOTED TO DO SO.
A RECEIPTED INVOICE WILL BE GIVEN FOR REMUNERATION AT THE END OF THE APPRAISAL VISIT.
WRITTEN REPORTS ARE NOT MADE WITH INITIAL SITE VISITS AND APPRAISALS.
 

OUR MOST REQUESTED FREE QUOTATIONS SERVICES ARE USUALLY COMMISSIONED FIRST
FOR STANDARD QUOTATIONS FOR AN INITIAL SITE VISIT APPRAISAL WITH INITIAL FEEDBACK AS THESE ARE REQUIRED FOR THE MOST COST-EFFICIENT AND INCLUSIVE SPECIFICATIONS OF PLANNING QUOTATIONS.
 
 
FREE QUOTATIONS, THOUGH, CAN START IMMEDIATELY, ALBEIT CONSEQUENT ON THERE NOT BEING OR LIKELY TO BE ANY EXISTING PLANNING CONSTRAINTS.
NOT DIRECTLY INFORMED TO THE CONSULTANCY. SUCH QUOTATIONS ARE SUBJECT TO THE SPECIFIC DEGREE OF INFORMATION PROVIDED TO THE CONSULTANCY AS TO CLIENT AND PLANNING AUTHORITY REQUIREMENTS.
IN SOME CIRCUMSTANCES IT MAY NOT PROVE FEASIBLE TO PROVIDE SUFFICIENT INFORMATION TO CALCULATE QUOTATIONS IN WHICH CASE IT MAY BE SUGGESTED THAT THESE ARE GIVEN FOR PROCEDURAL STAGES OF WORK.
 
 
UNSPECIFIED INPUTS WILL REQUIRE ADDITIONAL SPECIFIC QUOTATIONS.
 
 
QUOTATIONS DO NOT INVOLVE THE GIVING OF FREE ADVICE, FEASIBILITY STUDIES OR GUARANTEES OF ANY KIND.
 
 
THE GRANTING OF PLANNING OR ANY PERMISSIONS CAN NEVER BE GUARANTEED UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES AND THERE ARE NO RIGHTS TO SUCH OTHER THAN THROUGH THE APPEALS SYSTEM OR THROUGH JUDICIAL REVIEWS.

RECEIPT OF WORK OR THE SUBMISSION OF APPLICATIONS.
FURTHER AMENDMENTS CAN BE PAID FOR ON A LIMITED HOURS WORK BASIS.

 
ALTHOUGH WE OFFER SERVICES ON AN IMMEDIATE RETAIL CONTEXT, WHERE WORK IS PAID FOR IMMEDIATELY ON RECEIPT OF SERVICES, AS PER OUR FEE PROPOSALS OR  ON A CONFIRMED WRITTEN ACCOUNT CONTEXT, WE HOPE TO PROVIDE ADEQUATE CONVENIENCE FOR CLIENTS AND ARE GRATEFUL TO BE INFORMED IN ADVANCE OF PARTICULAR NEEDS FOR STAGED FEES, FOR OUR SPECIFIC WRITTEN CONFIRMATION.
ANY CANCELATION OF WORK BY A CLIENT ONCE ANY SUBSTANTIAL PART HAS BEEN UNDERTAKEN WILL REQUIRE PAYMENT OF THAT ESTIMATED PART OF THE FEE. 

 
WORK CAN NOT BE CONTINUED, EVEN WHERE STAGED, OF COMPLEMENTARY OR SUPPLEMENTARY NATURE WITHOUT DUE PAYMENT OF FEES UNLESS OTHERWISE AGREED IN WRITING.
 

WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO REFUSE TO PROVIDE QUOTATIONS WHEREVER WE ARE NOT
INTERESTED IN THE WORK INVOLVED.
