If you have already paid for the Product(s) we will refund you the full amount paid including any delivery costs charged as soon as possible.

14. YOUR CONSUMER RIGHT OF RETURN AND REFUND
This clause only applies if you are a consumer
If you are a consumer, you have a legal right to cancel a Contract under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 during the period set out below in clause 13.1. This means that during the relevant period if you change your mind or decide for any other reason that you do not want to receive or keep a Product, you can notify us of your decision to cancel the Contract and receive a refund. Advice about your legal right to cancel the Contract is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office. Please refer to clause 3 above in relation to how you cancel your contract with us.
However, this cancellation right does not apply in the case of:
a) Products that are liable to deteriorate or expire rapidly;
b) Products which are not suitable for return due to health protection or hygiene reasons, if the security tag on the Products has been removed or tampered with after delivery; or
c) any Products which become mixed inseparably with other items after their delivery.
Your legal right to cancel a Contract starts from the date of the Dispatch Confirmation (the date on which we e-mail you to confirm our acceptance of your order), which is when the Contract between us is formed. Your deadline for cancelling the Contract then depends on what you have ordered and how it is delivered but usually you will have to the end of 14 days from the date that the Product came into your physical possession to do so. Once we have been notified that you wish to return a product you a further 14 days from the date they notify the retailer of their cancellation to return the goods.
If you cancel your Contract we will:
refund you the price you paid for the Products. However, please note we are permitted by law to reduce your refund 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;
refund any delivery costs you have paid, although, as permitted by law, the maximum refund will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer (provided that this is a common and generally acceptable method). 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.
make any refunds due to you as soon as possible and in any event within the deadlines indicated below:
If you have received the Product and we have not offered to collect it from you: 14 days after the day on which we receive the Product back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the Product back to us.
If you have not received the Product or you have received it and we have offered to collect it from you: 14 days after you inform us of your decision to cancel the Contract.
If you have returned the Products to us under this clause because they are faulty, mis-described, or for any other non-conformity with the Contract we will refund the price of the Product(s) in full, together with any applicable delivery charges.
We will refund you on the credit card or debit card used by you to pay. If you used vouchers to pay for the Product we may refund you in vouchers.
If a Product has been delivered to you before you decide to cancel your Contract:
Then you must return it to us without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days after the day on which you let us know that you wish to cancel the Contract. Our returns address is Homes Direct 365 Limited, Unit 6, Alliance Works, River View Industrial Estate, Dodsworth Street, Albert Hill, Darlington, Co. Durham, DL1 2UH. If we have offered to collect the Product from you (we will contact you to let you know this) we will collect the Products from the address to which they were delivered. We will contact you to arrange a suitable time for collection;
Unless the Product is faulty, misdescribed or is rejected due to other non-conformity with the Contract you will be responsible for the cost of returning the Products to us. If the Product is one which cannot be returned by post, we estimate that if you use the carrier which delivered the Product to you, these costs should not exceed the sums we charged you for delivery. If we have offered to collect the Product from you, we will charge you the direct cost to us of collection which we will notify you of in advance.
Because you are a consumer, we are under a legal duty to supply Products that are in conformity with this Contract. As a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to Products that are faulty, misdescribed or otherwise fail to conform with the Contract. These legal rights are not affected by your right of return and refund in this clause 9 or anything else in these Terms. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
We will contact you with an estimated delivery date following the acceptance of your order as set out in clause 5.
We will deliver the Product(s) to you as soon as reasonably possible and in any event within a 16 week delivery deadline. Our delivery estimate is dependent upon the Product(s) ordered as the nature of the Product(s) means that not all Products advertised on our website are held in stock.
Occasionally our delivery to you may be affected by an Event Outside Our Control. In that event we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the Event Outside Our Control, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any products you have paid for but not received. See clause 19 for our responsibilities when this happens.
All Products that are delivered must be signed for. If no one is available at your address to take delivery, we will leave you a note that the Products have been returned to our premises, in which case, please contact us to rearrange delivery. If you do not re-arrange delivery we will contact you for further instructions and may charge you for storage costs and any further delivery costs. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery or collection we may end the contract and refund any monies paid to you subject to deduction of a 20% restocking charge.
Delivery of an Order shall be completed when we deliver the Products to the address you gave us and the Products will be your responsibility from that time.
You own the Products once we have received payment in full, including all applicable delivery charges.
Time for delivery will not be of the essence, however, if we miss the delivery deadline for any Products then you may cancel your Order straight away if any of the following apply:
a) we have refused to deliver the Products;
b) delivery within the delivery deadline was essential (taking into account all the relevant circumstances); or
c) you told us before we accepted your order that delivery within the delivery deadline was essential.
If the circumstances in this clause in paragraphs (a) to (c) above apply, but you do not wish to cancel your order straight away, or do not have the right to do so under clause 13, you can give us a new deadline for delivery, which must be reasonable, and you can cancel your Order if we do not meet the new deadline.
Irrespective of the nature of the Product ordered it is assumed that delivery will be to the ground floor of premises to which there is good access for our delivery vehicle. If you have any reason to suspect that delivery might be hampered by reason of poor access then you should contact us to arrange to accept delivery at another place.
Our delivery operatives will deliver the Product(s) with reasonable care and skill.
If delivery is required to premises or part of premises which are only accessible by means of stairs or lift, or which might involve carrying the Product in tight spaces you must :
a) notify us in advance of delivery of potential difficulties to be faced by our delivery operatives
b) ensure that the route to the desired point of delivery is clear of obstruction or objects that might be damaged
c) ensure that walls, doors and any other fixtures or fittings which the Product might come into contact with during delivery are covered or protected
Our delivery operatives will use their reasonable endeavours to deliver the Product to your desired point of delivery, however, they may decline to do so if in their reasonable opinion in doing so they will cause damage to either the Product, your premises, fixtures and fittings or themselves. In those circumstances the Product will be delivered to a point of delivery determined by the delivery operatives acting reasonably.
16. INTERNATIONAL DELIVERY
We deliver to the countries listed on this page (International Delivery Destinations). However there are restrictions on some Products for certain International Delivery Destinations, so please review the information on that page carefully before ordering Products.
If you order Products from our site for delivery to one of the International Delivery Destinations, your order may be subject to import duties and taxes which are applied when the delivery reaches that destination. Please note that we have no control over these charges and we cannot predict their amount.
You will be responsible for payment of any such import duties and taxes. Please contact your local customs office for further information before placing your order.
You must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country for which the Products are destined. We will not be liable or responsible if you break any such law.
16. PRICE OF PRODUCTS AND DELIVERY CHARGES
The prices of the Products will be as quoted on our site at the time you submit your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the prices of Products are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system.
Our site, however, does contain a large number of Products. It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the Products on our site may be incorrectly priced. If we discover an error in the price of the Products you have ordered we will contact you to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Product at the correct price or cancelling your order. We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing. Please note that if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could have reasonably been recognized by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the Products to you at the incorrect (lower) price.
Prices for our Products may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order you have already placed.
The price of a Product includes VAT (where applicable) at the applicable current rate chargeable in the UK for the time being. However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of your order and the date of delivery, we will adjust the VAT you pay, unless you have already paid for the Products in full before the change in VAT takes effect.
The price of a Product does not include delivery charges. Our delivery charges are as advised to you during the check-out process, before you confirm your order. To check relevant delivery charges, please refer to our delivery page here.
17. HOW TO PAY
You can only pay for Products by:
a) debit card or credit card (we accept the cards listed on our site from time to time); or
b) PayPal; or
c) Google Checkout.
Payment for the Products and all applicable delivery charges is in advance.
All of the products that we sell come with the standard 6 month manufacturer's guarantee as stated under the Consumer Rights Act 2015 (CRA 2015).
If you are a consumer, a manufacturer's guarantee is in addition to, and does not affect, your legal rights in relation to Products that are faulty or not as described. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
19. EVENTS OUTSIDE OUR CONTROL
We will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of our obligations under a Contract that is caused by an Event Outside Our Control. An Event Outside Our Control is defined below.
An Event Outside Our Control means any act or event beyond our reasonable control, including without limitation strikes, lock-outs or other industrial action by third parties, civil commotion, riot, invasion, terrorist attack or threat of terrorist attack, war (whether declared or not) or threat or preparation for war, fire, explosion, storm, flood, earthquake, subsidence, epidemic or other natural disaster, or failure of public or private telecommunications networks or impossibility of the use of railways, shipping, aircraft, motor transport or other means of public or private transport.
If an Event Outside Our Control takes place that affects the performance of our obligations under a Contract:
a) we will contact you as soon as reasonably possible to notify you; and
b) our obligations under a Contract will be suspended and the time for performance of our obligations will be extended for the duration of the Event Outside Our Control. Where the Event Outside Our Control affects our delivery of Products to you, we will arrange a new delivery date with you after the Event Outside Our Control is over.
You may cancel a Contract affected by an Event Outside Our Control which has continued for more than 30 days. To cancel please contact us. If you opt to cancel, you will have to return (at our cost) any relevant Products you have already received, and we will refund the price you have paid, including any delivery charges.
20. COMMUNICATIONS BETWEEN US
If you are a consumer you may contact us as described in clause 2.
If you are a business:
Any notice or other communication given by you to us, or by us to you, under or in connection with the Contract shall be in writing and shall be delivered personally, sent by pre-paid first class post or other next working day delivery service or e-mail.
A notice or other communication shall be deemed to have been received: if delivered personally, when left at our registered office; if sent by pre-paid first class post or other next working day delivery service, at 9.00 am on the second Business Day after posting or if sent by e-mail, one Business Day after transmission.
In proving the service of any notice, it will be sufficient to prove, in the case of a letter, that such letter was properly addressed, stamped and placed in the post and, in the case of an e-mail, that such e-mail was sent to the specified e-mail address of the addressee.
The provisions of this clause shall not apply to the service of any proceedings or other documents in any legal action.
21. OTHER IMPORTANT TERMS
We may transfer our rights and obligations under a Contract to another organisation, but this will not affect your rights or our obligations under these Terms.
You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these Terms to another person if we agree in writing.
This Contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms, whether under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 or otherwise.
Each of the paragraphs of these Terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Terms, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.
If you are a consumer, please note that these Terms are governed by English law. This means a Contract for the purchase of Products through our site and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it will be governed by English law. You and we both agree to that the courts of England and Wales will have non-exclusive jurisdiction. However, if you are a resident of Northern Ireland you may also bring proceedings in Northern Ireland, and if you are a resident of Scotland, you may also bring proceedings in Scotland.
If you are a business, a Contract and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it or its subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims) shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the law of England and Wales.
If you are a business, we both irrevocably agree that the courts of England and Wales shall have exclusive jurisdiction to settle any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with a Contract or its subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims).
Alternative Dispute Resolution
Alternative dispute resolution is a process where an independent body considers the facts of a dispute and seeks to resolve it, without you having to go to court. If you are not happy with how we have handled any complaint, you may want to contact the alternative dispute resolution provider we use. You can submit a complaint to the Furniture Ombudsman via their website at https://www.thefurnitureombudsman.org/. The Furniture Ombudsman will not charge you for making a complaint and if you are not satisfied with the outcome you can still bring legal proceedings. In addition, please note that disputes may be submitted for online resolution to the European Commission Online Dispute Resolution platform found here.
