Terms & Conditions
Please refer to your signed contract of appointment for full details – below is a summary of our standard terms.
Due date for payment is 7 days. As explained in the full terms supplied with our quotation, we offer credit for up 30 days subject to your credit rating using CREDITFOCUS.
The `final date for payment’ shall be 30 days after the due date for payment. Payment shall be made no later than the final date for payment – we reserve the right to suspend works if fees are not paid in full by the due date.
We understand and will exercise our statutory right to claim interest and compensation for debt recovery costs under the late payment legislation if we are not paid according to agreed credit terms previously supplied. This will comprise interest on any unpaid fees from the date one month after the bill is rendered at 3% per annum above Barclays Bank plc base rate as at the date of the bill. Further, if you have not paid us within 45 days you agree to pay a charge for collection, namely £40 on debts under £1000, £70 on debts over £1000. After 45 days we will instruct a solicitor to write to chase any outstanding debt.
Building Control Fees
Building Control Fees are application fees and are payable in advance of the work being completed. We cannot agree to fees being paid contingent on works being completed as this would be a conflict of interest, as we would be under pressure to sign off non-conforming work in order to be paid. In the event that the works are abandoned part way through the appointment no refund will be made of fees invoiced, however, no additional invoices will be raised.
Building Control Fees have been based on the contract value and duration and are payable upon appointment as Approved Inspector.
- Fees under £1000 (exc VAT) will be charged as a single payment unless we have indicated otherwise.
- Fees over £1000 (exc VAT) will normally be charged as a plan checking fee and a site inspection fee (each being 50% of total unless agreed otherwise)

Cheques should be made payable to Wilkinson Construction Consultants Ltd and posted to the West Malling Office.
