3. PRICES AND PAYMENT

3.1   At the beginning of the subscription, the applicant pays a one-off € 39.95 registration fee. If the beginning of the subscription coincides with an urgent repair request, the applicant pays a one-off registration fee of € 99.95. In addition to the registration fee, Subscriber will pay the monthly subscription fee to Lex in advance at the beginning of the subscription. With this application, Subscriber issues a direct debit authorisation to Lex for the automatic payment of the subsequent monthly fees.

3.2   If nobody is present at the house on the moment agreed upon for performing the repair works, a no-show fee is charged. If this occurs, Lex is entitled to charge the associated costs of € 60. A scheduled appointment can be cancelled or changed free of charge up to 48 hours prior to the appointment.

3.3   Lex has the right to index the prices for the repairs and materials once a year, pursuant to the Dutch BDB index for the construction industry (reference moment October to October). Lex will actively inform about any upcoming price increases. If Subscriber does not wish to accept any such increase, he has the right to terminate the subscription before the price increase starts applying.

3.4   If the monthly direct debit by Lex is unsuccessful, Subscriber will receive an e-mail notification from Lex. If Subscriber does not meet his payment obligations timely, he will receive a proper default notice from Lex, stating a period in which the payment can be made. If this period is exceeded without having received the payment, both the legal interest rate and extrajudicial debt collection fees are owed over the amount.

 

4. OBLIGATIONS

4.1   Subscriber will provide Lex with all cooperation that may be reasonably expected, and will always timely provide for the relevant information and cooperation. Should this not happen on-time or at all, then Lex has the right to suspend the work performance and charge Subscriber with any additional expenses made as a result.

4.2   Subscriber guarantees the accuracy and completeness of the information you provide to Lex. If any damage is covered by an insurance company, it remains the sole responsibility of Subscriber at all times to (timely) report the damage to the relevant insurance company or other entities at all times.

4.3   The agreement is not entirely or partially transferrable to any third party without the prior written consent of Lex.

5. DURATION, TERMINATION AND RIGHT OF WITHDRAWAL

5.1   The duration of the agreement is one year from its initial commencement date. After this year, the agreement is tacitly converted to an agreement for an indefinite period. The agreement may then be terminated by either Lex or Subscriber by informing the other party in writing and observing a one month notice period.

5.2   The agreement is concluded digitally and is therefore governed by the Dutch law for distance contract (‘Wet koop op afstand’). Subscriber has a 14 day cooling-off period, starting on the day after the day on which the agreement was entered into. During this period, Subscriber may cancel the agreement by informing per e-mail and without being required to state any reasons. Any costs already paid by Subscriber will then be returned as soon as possible and no later than within 14 days.

5.3 If Subscriber requests Lex to commence any repair before the 14 day cooling-off period ends, express consent is given to costs being incurred for the completion of the repairs. Doing so means that the cooling-off period is waived.
