STANDARD TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE
The “Purchase Price” (as stated in the “Project Order”) is valid for a period of thirty (30) days from the date of this “Proposal” after which time the Purchase Price is subject to revision. The “Scope of Work” to be performed by JNB Homes d/b/a/ d/b/a/ Savvy Home Supply, a Kentucky limited liability company (the “Company”), constituting the “Project” on the “Project Site”, shall be as specifically outlined on the Project Order.
“Customer” warrants that he, she or it has legal title to the Project Site and is authorized to be bound by this Proposal. Any one or more owners collectively constituting Customer (i.e., husband and wife) shall be jointly and severally liable.
Company’s standard terms of payment are as stated on the Project Order. Any payments, constituting either all or a portion of the Purchase Price, made by credit card shall increase that portion of the Purchase Price by 3.0%.
Any payments made from an insurance carrier to Company and/or Customer shall be subject to this Proposal.
Company recognizes that time is of the essence in terms of its performance and shall endeavor, acting in a commercially reasonable manner, to meet the Completion Date (as may be stipulated in the Project Order); subject, however, to Force Majeure.
If applicable and as stated on the Project Order, Company’s “Design Fee”, as stipulated by Client’s “Engagement Letter for Custom Design Build”, shall be included in, and made a part of, the Purchase Price.
Company’s Purchase Price is based upon existing measurements made by Company at the Project
Site and/or as otherwise based upon dimensions made and/or supplied by Customer (or as provided in Customer’s plans, specifications, diagrams, etc.). To the extent such measurements are ever subsequently altered, and/or Company is not timely notified by Customer of any such measurement and/or dimension changes, the cost of any such necessitated re-work of products or materials, as furnished by Company, shall be borne by Customer plus a 20% mark-up.
Company shall have the right to assert and/or enforce any of its statutory lien rights in the event of any non-payment. All past due payments shall bear interest at the rate of 12% per annum. Customer shall reimburse Company for all collection costs including, but not limited to, all legal fees. Company specifically reserves all rights and remedies, whether at law or equity, to be cumulatively enforced.
The Purchase Price is based upon: (i) all required and sufficient utilities being connected to Company’s point of use on the Project Site and (ii) all non-hazardous debris generated shall be removed by Company at its expense.
At any time commencing upon and/or during Company’s performance of the Scope of Work, Contractor reserves the right to notify the Customer in writing of any heretofore unforeseen, non-visible or undetected circumstances and/or conditions, pre-existing or otherwise (including, but not limited to, mold), which materially affect the Purchase Price whereby Contractor may, in its discretion, increase the Purchase Price accordingly pursuant to a Change Order (as hereinafter defined). Furthermore, to the extent there are any such unforeseen, non-visible or undetected circumstances and/or conditions which materially affect the Purchase Price (including, but not limited to, mold), Customer is obligated to affirmatively negotiate and advocate with its insurance carrier, on Contractor’s behalf, an equitable adjustment to any direct pay insurance proceeds and/or insurance derived reimbursements to Customer, in either case resulting in an increase in the Purchase Price to be handled as a Change Order.
The Purchase Price does not include the removal, demolition and/or transportation of any lead paint residue, asbestos laden or “hazardous materials” (as specified and/or defined by the EPA, or by any state or local agencies) and, furthermore, the removal, subsequent internment and/or transportation of lead paint residue, asbestos and/or hazardous materials shall be in accordance with all federal, state or local codes and/or ordinances and shall be performed by others at the sole expense of Customer, not by Company. It is Customer’s responsibility to test the Project Site for lead paint residue, asbestos or hazardous materials and to handle such removal prior to the acceptance of this Proposal and/or the Commencement Date of this proposed Project.
The Purchase Price is F.O.B. the Project Site and includes all applicable state or local taxes.
Company expressly reserves the right to correct any material, clerical or stenographic errors contained within this Proposal upon a timely and prompt notification of said error to Customer.
The Purchase Price does not include the costs of any construction licenses or permits of any kind or nature, for building, occupancy or otherwise. Customer shall assume costs of such construction licensing, building permits or registrations required by local, state, or federal authorities, if any. To the extent Company is involved, on Customer’s behalf, in assisting in the procurement of any Customer desired construction licenses or permits (such as, but not limited to, meetings with governmental authorities and/or inspectors), Client shall reimburse Company for all such costs incurred including, but not limited to, for all administrative time incurred.
Company shall, in its sole discretion, have salvage rights to the removal of furnishings or fixtures from the Project Site, or with respect to any surplus materials brought to the Project Site by Company or any of its subcontractors and/or agents.
Company personnel are fully covered by Workmen’s Compensation and certificates of insurance are available upon request. Company is only liable for its own negligence that may arise with respect to property damage it has directly caused, in no event greater than the extent of its commercial property and casualty insurance. Company is only liable for personal injury or wrongful death to the extent of its commercial liability insurance coverage. Company is not liable for the negligence, gross negligence and/or willful misconduct of its subcontractors or independent contractors.
Title to all materials and equipment supplied by Company shall remain the property of Company as security for the payment of all sums due under this Proposal. However, any risk of loss or damage to Company’s materials or equipment and/or of its vendors, suppliers and/or subcontractors which has been delivered to and/or stored at the Project Site shall remain that of Customer at all times until the Project has been totally completed and payment in full to Company has been received. Accordingly, Customer shall have builder’s risk insurance and/or home owner’s insurance equal at least to the value of the Purchase Price or any other type of applicable insurance coverages. Company’s materials or equipment and/or the materials, or equipment of its vendors, suppliers and/or subcontractors, shall not be removed from the Project Site prior to payment in full of the Purchase Price or otherwise without the express written consent of Company.
Any alteration or deviation from the Scope of Work including, but not limited to, a change in the Purchase Price through “Change Orders”, or any amendments to this Proposal, should be executed in writing and signed and dated by all parties hereto; provided, however, verbal approvals by Client to proceed, if any, on any additional Scope of Work (and as consented to by Company) shall be legally binding upon Client under any scenario.
Destruction, alteration and/or interference of Company’s Scope of Work in any stage of performance, either by Customer, its family members, guests, invitees, agents, representatives and/or pets, whether intentionally or unintentionally, shall subject Customer to a Change Order in order for Company to re-perform the damaged Scope of Work, all at Customer’s sole expense, without otherwise affecting the payment by Customer of the full Purchase Price.
Any Scope of Work requested by Customer to be re-performed for aesthetic reasons shall be subject to Customer paying for such re-work by executing a Change Order, without otherwise affecting the payment by Customer of the full Purchase Price.
Any agreement entered into shall be contingent upon strikes, accidents, delays, floods, weather storms, utility interruptions, unavailability of materials, civil insurrections or other circumstances beyond Company’s direct control (collectively, “Force Majeure”).
Company is not, and shall not be construed, as an original equipment manufacturer (”OEM”) and, therefore, Company shall not be liable in any manner or to any extent for (i) personal injury, wrongful death or property damage arising out of errors or omissions regarding the designing, engineering and/or installation of equipment and/or appliances made by any manufacturer with respect to the Project and/or the installation of any materials supplied by Customer and (ii) for damages caused by malfunctions or manufacturing defects in such vendor and/or Customer supplied equipment, machinery, materials and/or components. Accordingly, any and all claims of product liability regarding personal injury, wrongful death or property damage arising out of malfunctions or manufacturing defects in equipment or materials shall be directly between Customer and the OEM and/or the applicable vendor and/or subcontractor, and not between Customer and Company. In no event, even pursuant to a court ruling to the contrary, shall Company ever be liable for such product liability related damages in excess of its commercial liability insurance coverage, pursuant to direct claims and/or third party claims of indemnification.
Company expressly warrants its own workmanship for a period of one year from the date of completion in accordance with acceptable construction and/or trade performance standards (with the Customer acknowledging that existing conditions may otherwise preclude “perfect results”); provided, however, the installed Scope of Work has not been subjected to any physical, chemical or mechanical abuse or by Force Majeure (as conclusively determined by Company). To the extent, however, any OEM provides any pass- through warranties for less than a full one year period, the warranty to Customer shall be similarly reduced and/or prorated (all such OEM warranties shall be directly between Customer and the OEM and/or the applicable vendor and/or subcontractor, and not between Customer and Company). Otherwise, Company makes no other express or implied warranty as to the fitness or merchantability of installed equipment and components, nor as to the period of service of its products identified above.
The above stated OEM product warranty on major equipment and components will commence upon receipt of final payment with the terms of the warranty being retroactive to the Completion Date of the Project.
In no event shall Company be liable for incidental, consequential, special or punitive damages of any kind or nature in connection with, or arising out of, its performance of the Scope of Work or the furnishing, installation, servicing, use or abuse of any products sold, systems installed or manufactured by it to Customer.
Customer shall cooperate with Company in scheduling and performing the above-identified work agenda and, in addition, schedule other work trades so as not to interfere with any aspects of installation.
In no event shall Company be liable for liquidated damages because of delays arising out of its performance.
Company’s limitation of liability for direct damages regarding a breach of contract for its performance shall not, in any event, exceed that portion of the Purchase Price which is attributable to Customer’s allegation of Company’s non-performance.
At Company’s discretion, any cancellation of the Project by Customer within 30 days prior to the Commencement Date, for any reason whatsoever other than for Force Majeure, shall require Customer to forfeit, at a minimum, any down payment as liquidated damages and not as a penalty, plus Customer shall pay all of Company’s anticipated profits on the Project. At Company’s discretion, any cancellation of the Project by Customer more than 30 days prior to the Commencement Date, for any reason whatsoever other than for Force Majeure, shall require Customer to forfeit, at a minimum, only that portion of the down payment attributable to the direct costs of non-refundable customized products already custom manufactured and/or fabricated and/or for any and all restocking charges, all as liquidated damages and not as a penalty, plus Customer shall pay all of Company’s anticipated profits on the Project. Under either scenario, Company reserves the right and option to (i) further assess Customer for any restocking charges for specially ordered equipment, materials or systems, to the extent any such non-recoverable costs should ever exceed the down payment and (ii) to separately recover its Design Fee pursuant to any Engagement Letter for Custom Design Build.
As may be itemized on the Project Order, Company may stipulate that certain conditions must exist, and/or certain conditions precedent must be satisfied, prior to Company’s commencement to perform the Scope of Work. To the extent Customer does not comply, Company reserves the right to not to perform the Scope of Work and to unilaterally rescind the Contract; provided, however, Company, as its remedy, shall be entitled to retain Customer’s down payment as liquidated damages and not as a penalty; and provided, further, Company reserves the right and option to (i) further assess Customer for any restocking charges for specially ordered equipment, materials or systems, to the extent any such non-recoverable costs should ever exceed the down payment and (ii) to separately recover its Design Fee pursuant to any Engagement Letter for Custom Design Build to the extent applicable.
This Proposal (and any resulting Contract) shall be governed by, and shall be construed and enforced in accordance with, the laws of the Commonwealth of Kentucky if the Project Site is located in Kentucky (or the jurisdiction where the Project Site is located), without giving effect to any conflict of law, rule or principle that might require the application of the laws of another jurisdiction. Notwithstanding the above, any and all disputes under this Proposal (and any resulting Contract) shall be subject to conciliation/arbitration proceedings as mandated by the Building Industry Association of Greater Louisville and, furthermore, Company shall have a right to cure under KRS 411.250-411.266.

It is mutually understood and agreed that all of the terms and conditions of this Proposal (and any resulting Contract) are as set forth herein. No waiver, modification or variation thereof in any particular shall be binding upon any party unless in writing.
