Your rights when you end the Contract will depend on what you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing and when you decide to end the Contract:
9.1.1. If what you have bought is faulty or misdescribed you may have a legal right to end the Contract (or to get the Goods repaired or replaced or a Service re-performed or to get some or all of your money back). See clause 11.
9.1.2. If you want to end the contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do. See clause 9.2.
9.1.3. If you have just changed your mind about the Service, see clause 9.3. You may be able to get a refund if you are within the cooling-off period, but this may be subject to deductions and you will have to pay the costs of return of any Goods.
9.2. Ending the Contract because of something we have done or are going to do.
If you are ending a Contract for a reason set out at 9.2.1 to 9.2.3, the Contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any products which have not been provided and you may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are:
9.2.1. There is a risk that supply of the products may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control;

9.2.3. You have a legal right to end the Contract because of something we have done wrong.
9.3. Exercising your right to change your mind (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013).

9.4. When you don't have the right to change your mind.
You do not have a right to changing your mind in respect of:
9.4.1. Goods that have been installed;

9.5.1. Goods. You have 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the Goods, unless your Goods are split into several deliveries over different days. In this case you have until 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the last delivery to change your mind about the Goods.
9.6. Ending the contract where we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind. Even if we are not at fault and you do not have a right to change your mind, you can still end the Contract before it is completed, but you may have to pay us compensation. A contract for Services is completed when we have finished providing the Services and you have paid for them. If you want to end the Contract before it is completed where we are not at fault and where there’s no right to change your mind, just contact us to let us know. The Contract will end immediately and we will refund any sums paid by you for Services not yet provided or Goods not yet purchased by us on your behalf. However, we may deduct from that refund (or, if you have not made an advance payment, charge you) reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your ending the contract. (See 9.7)
9.7 Compensation for design services
Your Space Living would expect to be compensated for design work undertaken in good faith. The contract starts at the point when a designer has been instructed to design a room space. Subsequent to that, the compensation amount would depend on the total time accrued prior to the contract ending.
This has been broken down into a three monthly stages;
9.7.1 One month from the start of contract. Your space Living would look to retain the design fee/deposit as outlined in Section 14. In the event that a design fee/deposit has not been charged, the sum equating to the design/deposit will be sought.
9.7.2 Two months from the start of contract. Your Space Living would charge an additional £1000 (on top of the design fee/deposit) in lieu of two months design time.
9.7.3 Three months from the start of the contract. Your Space Living would charge an additional £2000 (on top of the design fee/deposit) in lieu of three months design time.
9.7.4 Beyond three months from the start of the contract Your Space Living would not seek additional compensation over that outlined above.

10.5. What we charge for collection.
If you are responsible for the costs of return and we are collecting the Goods from you, we will charge you the direct cost to us of collection.
10.6. Deductions from refunds if you are exercising your right to change your mind.
If you are exercising your right to change your mind:
10.6.1. We may reduce your refund of the price (excluding delivery costs) to reflect any reduction in the value of the Goods, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop.

10.6.2. The maximum refund for delivery costs will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer. For example, if we offer delivery of a product within 3-5 days at one cost but you choose to have the product delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option.
10.6.3. In relation to Services, we may deduct from any refund an amount for the supply of the Service for the period for which it was supplied, ending with the time when you told us you had changed your mind.

During the expected lifespan of your product your legal rights entitle you to the following: up to 30 days: if your goods are faulty, then you can get an immediate refund.
Up to six months: if your goods can't be repaired or replaced, then you're entitled to a full refund, in most cases. up to six years: if your goods do not last a reasonable length of time you may be entitled to some money back. See also clause 9.3.
If your product is services, for example the provision of the design services, the Consumer Rights Act 2015 says: you can ask us to repeat or fix a service if it's not carried out with reasonable care and skill, or get some money back if we can't fix it.
if you haven't agreed a price beforehand, what you're asked to pay must be reasonable.
if you haven't agreed a time beforehand, it must be carried out within a reasonable time.
See also clause 9.3.
12.4. Your obligation to return rejected Goods.
If you wish to exercise your legal rights to reject products you must either return them in person to where you bought them, post them back to us or (if they are not suitable for posting) allow us to collect them from you. Please call us on 01446 796731 or email us at email@example.com for a return label or to arrange collection.
13.1. Where to find the price for the Services.
The price of the Services (which includes VAT) will be the price as set out in the Order Form. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the Services advised to you is correct. However please see clause 13.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order.
13.2. We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT.
If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the product, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the product in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
13.3. What happens if we got the price wrong?
It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Services we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the product's correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order.
13.4. When you must pay and how you must pay.
We accept payment with Mastercard and Visa, as well as direct bank transfers using the BACS system. When you must pay depends on what Service you are buying:
13.4.1. For Goods, you must pay for the products before we dispatch them. We will not charge your credit or debit card until we dispatch the Goods to you.
13.4.2. For services, you must make the payments as set out in the Order Form, some of these payments will need to be made before we start providing the Services. We will invoice you for the balance of the price of the Services when we have completed them OR we will invoice you weekly [in advance OR in arrear] for the services until the services are completed]. You must pay each invoice within 14 calendar days after the date of the invoice.
13.5. We can charge interest if you pay late.
If you do not make any payment to us by the due date we may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 4% a year above the base lending rate of Bank of England from time to time. This interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You must pay us interest together with any overdue amount.
13.6. What to do if you think an invoice is wrong.
If you think an invoice is wrong please contact us promptly to let us know. You will not have to pay any interest until the dispute is resolved. Once the dispute is resolved we will charge you interest on correctly invoiced sums from the original due date.
14. How we work.
As part of the payment structure, Your Space Living will require a deposit payment prior to placing a physical order. This deposit may come in the form of a design fee, which will depend on the specific nature of the project and the current workloads of the design team.
During busy periods, a design fee will help to ensure that design work is limited to committed clients who are intent or working exclusively with Your Space Living.
Please be aware that deposits and design fees are non refundable once work has begun, be that design work or furniture manufacture. This is due to the bespoke nature and specifics of the made-to-order process. Deposits related to off-the-shelf products, such as appliances or sanitary ware will be subject to a handling fee, as specified by the supplier.
The payment of a design fee does not equate to a purchase of the copyright or licence thereof. Copyright of all design work is retained by Your Space Living Ltd. For further reading, please see the section "Intellectual property".
15.1. We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us.
If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
15.2. We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so.
This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the Services as summarised at clause 12.3; and for defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.
15.3. When we are liable for damage to your property.
If we are providing Services in your property, we will make good any damage to your property caused by us while doing so. However, we are not responsible for the cost of repairing any pre-existing faults or damage to your property that we discover while providing the services.
15.4. We are not liable for business losses.
We only supply the Services for domestic and private use. If you use the products for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.

Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
17.5. Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the products, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
17.6. Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings.
These terms are governed by English and Welsh law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the Services in the English and Welsh courts.
17.7. Alternative dispute resolution.
