Subject to the paragraph below:
In some circumstances, it may not be possible to repair or replace products without undertaking works which may damage your premises and/or property (including, without limitation, fixtures and fittings). We will not undertake any works at your premises without your authorisation but will have no liability (including, without limitation, in negligence) for any damage to your premises and/or property where you have authorised us to carry out such works.

During a period of two years following the performance of repairs by Methven under this warranty, Methven will, at its option, re-perform any repairs and/or replace any affected products in the event that Methven’s failure to perform such repairs with reasonable skill and care directly causes any product(s) to fail to comply with the specification for such product(s).
