Important liability statement

Whilst we will do our best (that is to use reasonable care and skill) in providing building estimates, the building estimator provided on this website and via our online plugin tools are estimates only and you must only use them on this basis and only for personal (non-business) use. The service works on the basis of analysing construction work items in relation with their unique material and labour requirements, other environmental and physical factors that may likely come to play. Construction work items may differ in a number of ways which are not taken into account, such as standard of construction, nature of project and general condition or specific location. Also, the estimates are, by their nature, subjective and based on estimating and experience needs at the time (and markets can change for various reasons).

The estimates may be relied on as “estimates” which means an approximate calculation which may be lower or higher than the actual required. The estimates suggested herein may be relied on for construction purposes as long as it is deemed an “estimate”. However, we still strongly recommend that you seek or consult a registered quantity surveyor or request through our premium service to get a more realistic and applicable material and labour requirement for your construction project (and in fact it is recommended that you speak to more than one agent to compare estimations).

The estimations are provided for your use only and you may not encourage or allow any other person to rely on them. We shall not be liable for any losses you or anyone else suffers as a result of relying on the estimates. This includes not being liable for any loss of profit, loss of bargain, loss of capital through over-payment or under-sale or for any indirect, special or consequential loss. We cannot and do not guarantee that our website and online tools will be constantly available or error-free. 

We do not exclude or limit our liability for anything we are not allowed to, and your statutory rights as a consumer are not affect by any of these terms and conditions.
