Sorry if this is in the wrong forum.
Siro want to access to our site (standard 3 bed semi) to run their cable across the front or our house and on down the road. I’d never heard of siro and ya man just called to the door one day and did a half baked intro and was a little pushy about it (you have to sign now, if you don’t you’ll have to pay to dig up the road if you ever want siro and you’ll be putting your neighbours out kind of stuff). Anyway, he wouldn’t give me a copy of the doc i’d be signing but eventually he let me take a photo (apols for quality).
Generally i am grand with them doing it but i just want to make sure i am not liable for them killing themselves and they’re liable if they damage the house.
Here’s a link to the t&cs imgur.com/a/jtp2ccx
Most of it looks fine to me but i wouldn’t be too sure really. They seem to address their liability in point 9: “Neither SIRO and or siro sub-contractors are liable under this agreement for any indirect special or consequential losses or damage howsoever arising in carrying out the siro works.”
Does that mean that they do accept liability for normal damage e.g tearing a tile or gutter down or a brick coming away? Would you think this is sufficient to let them work on your property?
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. maybe i am being paranoid but id rather be safe than sorry.
