every effort is made to identify potential issues during the initial site survey, some problems such as wet/damaged floorboards,
asbestos etc. may not be detected and as such, the bathroom may be delayed until these issues are resolved. Such unidentified
issues will incur an additional cost to rectify unless specifically stated on the bathroom order form. In these circumstances, every
effort will be made to keep the delay to a minimum however, time is not of the essence and a substantial delay cannot be used
as reasoning for cancellation. Cancellation rights are unaffected by this and remain as stated in clause 8.
