Legal advice on Terms and Conditions for Consumer Contracts
It is important to set out the terms and conditions under which you offer goods or services to make sure that they work for your business. If you don’t set these out, statutory and common rules will apply. Having good terms and conditions let’s your customers know what to expect and protects you from unnecessary losses. Terms and Conditions must be in plain English and cover key legal aspects.
