Changing T&Cs When Provided Agreement for Signature
I have received an agreement for execution from a consultant on behalf of the owner. During the tender phase, a link to predetermined terms and conditions was provided. There was no addendum during the tender to change the terms and conditions. Upon receipt of the agreement, the consultant stated in the Articles of Agreement that the T&Cs in the tender are not valid and to use a new set of T&Cs. I advised the consultant that this is a material change from what we bid and their response was that we have worked under these T&Cs on other projects (we have not.) This is in Canada. I've stated we are evaluating impacts but suspect they will push back. Has anyone experienced a consultant doing this and how was it handled?
