Cancellations.
You have the statutory right to cancel, without giving any reason, within 14 days of your formal instructions (you can tell us verbally or in writing). However, if you have asked us to proceed with your instructions immediately, you may be charged an amount which is proportionate to the work already undertaken. If our instructions have been fully completed within the 14 day cancellation period, your right to cancel will be lost.

Marshalls will not proceed with the instructions if, after arriving at the property, we conclude:
a) that it is of a type of construction of which we have insufficient specialist knowledge to be
able to complete the instruction satisfactorily; or
b) that it would be in the typical Client's best interests to be provided with an alternative type of inspection, rather than the service instructed.

In case of such cancellation, Marshalls will refund any money paid by the Client for the Service and the reason(s) will be fully explained to the Client.
