Information about us and how to contact us
MaidsUK is a technology platform, accessed through the Site or the App, that connects users (Users) with third party providers of cleaning services and certain other services as listed on the Site such as you (Service Providers). It enables Users to engage the services of a Service Provider in their area for the provision of those services (Services).
If you wish to contact us in writing, have a complaint or are required to give us notice in writing, you can send this to us by email at hello@MaidsUK.co.uk
Registration by the Service Provider
You acknowledge that, in determining whether to include you on the Site as a potential supplier of Services, we rely on the accuracy and completeness of the information supplied by you during the registration process. You therefore confirm that all such information is accurate and not misleading and that we may use it to carry out any of the searches or checks referred to below.
You also confirm that you possess all approvals and authority (including the necessary immigration status) required to work in the United Kingdom on a self-employed basis and, in particular, to provide Services to Users.
You authorise us and/or any of our appointed agents to carry out all necessary searches, including searches of consumer credit records, in order to verify the information you have provided.
You also authorise us and/or our appointed agents to perform Basic Disclosure and other checks through Disclosure Scotland (http://www.disclosurescotland.co.uk), together with any other relevant criminal record searches we consider appropriate. You hereby grant permission for Disclosure Scotland (or any other criminal record search provider) to forward the Disclosure Certificate (or similar search result) direct to us and for us to open the Disclosure Certificate (or similar search result) upon receipt (even if it is addressed to you).
You must promptly disclose to us all matters which are material to your ability and suitability to provide Services to Users, as well as any material changes thereto.
Relationship between the parties
You promise that you have the necessary skills and experience to supply the Services.
In the case of one-off/ad-hoc or end of tenancy cleans, if you cause any damage to a User’s property in the course of providing the Services to them, you will be fully responsible for such damage and will reimburse the User accordingly. You therefore agree that, for so long as you are providing Services to Users, you take out and maintain in force with a reputable insurer appropriate general liability insurance cover in respect of any such damage.
For regular cleans, if you cause any damage to a User’s property in the course of providing the Services to them, you will be covered on the User’s insurance if it is in place. The User’s household insurance policy is the primary insurance in play for the service at all times, providing employers liability cover for a limit of £10 million. If damage occurs any claims where the Client is already covered under their own household insurance schedule are excluded from claiming on MaidsUK’s policy which is set up on an indemnity basis with a public liability limit of £2 million.
If the user does not have insurance in place then you will be covered with the MaidsUK insurance. Where MaidsUK insurance applies, the client agrees to accept responsibility for the first £500 of any claim as only claims in excess of this value are covered by the MaidsUK policy.
You shall supply the Services in accordance with a high degree of professionalism and the highest industry standards. If cleaning work is not done up to a satisfactory standard, you agree to go back and complete the cleaning to the necessary standard at your own expense. In circumstances where you are unable to go back to complete a re-clean or the customer refuses for you to go back to complete a re-clean a refund may be provided to the customer which will be deducted from the amount owed to you.
You shall agree with the relevant User as to the provision and procurement of materials required by you to provide the Services to that User. We are not responsible for the provision of any tools, equipment or materials. The user may have requested cleaning supplies to be provided when using the MaidsUK platform, if this is the case by accepting the job you understand that providing supplies will be an expected part of the user and the service provider (you).
You acknowledge that we will notify you of any User cancellation by at least one of the following methods, mobile app, email, phone, whatts app or SMS communication. It will be your responsibility to monitor these frequently to ensure you are upto date on your bookings.
If you have to cancel a scheduled booking or are otherwise unable or unavailable to attend the agreed location to provide the Services requested, you must notify us and the relevant User by email or telephone as soon as possible and without undue delay.
If you fail to attend the agreed location at the scheduled time of the visit, we reserve the right to charge you the full amount of the booking and a non-attendance administration fee to cover our reasonable costs arising as a result of the missed booking which we may, at our election, deduct from any amounts due to you from us.
You shall promptly notify us:
- if, for any reason, you cannot attend any scheduled visit (in which case you must promptly notify the User also) or otherwise become unable or unavailable to supply the Services as contracted;
- if you receive any complaints from Users; and
- of any grievance that you may have in relation to Users.
If you agree to accept a booking through the MaidsUK platform and then at a later date decide that you no longer want or are unable to complete the clean we reserve the right to charge you a fee upto the total booking(s) value of the clean.
You shall attempt to resolve any complaint by a User directly with said User.
You shall only use User contact information insofar as is reasonably necessary to provide the Services. You shall keep such information confidential and shall delete it if requested to do so by us.
We do not carry out any checks on Users and cannot provide any guarantees as to the conduct of Users or the suitability or safety of their premises. You attend cleaning visits at your own risk. You must leave immediately if you have any concerns as to such matters.
By registering to use MaidsUK, you agree that all bookings between you and Users will be made through MaidsUK and that you will not supply any Services to any Users who have previously booked you through MaidsUK, or whose contact details you have received from us, other than through MaidsUK. If a User offers to engage or employ you to provide Services other than through MaidsUK, you must refuse such offer and notify us immediately. If you accept any such offer or if you make a similar offer to a User, we will immediately withdraw your right to use MaidsUK and you will be required to compensate us in respect of any losses we suffer as a result up to a maximum of £500 and we may deduct this from any money owed to you.
You also agree not to supply any Services to any Users who have previously booked you through MaidsUK, or whose contact details you have received from us, for a period of six months after the date of termination of the legal agreement between us.
You are free to set your own pricing, this will be agreed with MaidsUK before any bookings are assigned to you.
Payments will be made twice a month from the company to an account of your choosing. The first payment will be on the 7th, this will cover all work carried out between the 15th and end the of the previous month. The next payment date will be the 21st, this will cover all work carried out between the 1st and 14th of that month.
You agree that we will process payments for your services on your behalf and MaidsUK are only holding onto these funds until they are released to you pending any issues from the users.
