- professional indemnity insurance
- responsibility for obtaining consents/approvals
- clear and safe access to the property.
The terms and conditions template includes a proposal form which you can use to give your client details of the surveying services you will provide. You don't have to use the proposal form but it is a convenient way of providing the specifics of your customer's requirements along with your terms and conditions. We've included guidance notes on how to customise and use both documents.
