We-Nup Terms and Conditions
If you buy services on our website wenup.co.uk (our ‘Website’) or following any interaction with us, you agree to be legally bound by these terms and conditions (‘Terms’).

3. These Terms
- Any reference to ‘we’, ‘us’ or ‘our’ in these Terms is to We-Nup, and any reference to ‘you’ or ‘your’ is to the person placing an order for services.
- We may make changes to these Terms at any time. However, the Terms that apply to your order will be those in force at the time you submitted your order to us.
- Please print out or save a copy of these Terms and any emails from us for your records, as we may not save or file a copy for you. These Terms are only available in English.
- If any provision or part-provision of these Terms is or becomes invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, it shall be deemed deleted, but that shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the rest of these Terms.
- For the purposes of these Terms, an “order” is a request by you to receive services from us.
- Before making an order for our services, please read our Website carefully to check that our services are suitable for your use. It is entirely your responsibility to ensure that you are eligible to use our services and that they are suitable for your use.
- Please check your order carefully and correct any errors before you submit it to us.
- After you place your order, we will send you an acknowledgment email to let you know that we have received your order. This does not mean that your order has been accepted by us. Your order is an offer to buy services from us on these Terms.
- Acceptance of your order by us takes place when we send you an order confirmation email, at which point a legally binding contract is formed between you and us on these Terms.
- If we do not accept your order, for example because we are unable to take payment, the services are unavailable, you are under 18 or live outside of the UK, or there has been a mistake regarding the pricing or description of the services, we will email you using the details you provided when you placed your order. We have the right to reject any order for any reason.
- In the event that you have made an advance payment, and we are subsequently unable to accept your order, we will refund you as soon as possible and no later than 14 days after we received your payment
All orders are subject to availability. We cannot guarantee that any service will be available at any given time. In certain circumstances beyond our reasonable control, for example where there has been a change in law, we may need to stop providing certain services. If this happens and it affects your order, we will notify you by email, cancel your order and provide you with a refund of any advance payments made by you for any services that have not yet been provided.
6. Making changes to your order
If you would like to make any changes to your order after you have submitted it, please contact us as soon as possible and we will let you know if it is possible to change your order.
7. Providing our services
- A full description of our services is set out on our website.
- Any completion dates stated during the order process, or in your acknowledgment or confirmation emails, are estimates and we rely on your co-operation in order to provide the best possible services to you and within any estimated completion dates.
- Our services are provided over a period of time, and our services include the requirement for you to obtain independent legal advice. You are required to be available for and attend a telecommunication conference with a legal adviser, which we will arrange on your behalf. We are not liable to you for any losses you incur where the provision of our services is delayed or cannot be performed because you fail to attend the telecommunication conference, or if you fail to provide us with adequate instructions or information to allow us to perform the services.
- You are not prevented from instructing another barrister independently or otherwise seeking further legal advice.
- The provision of independent legal advice by a qualified legal adviser will be subject to separate Terms and conditions and shall constitute a separate contract between you and them. You will be provided with the Terms and conditions applicable to the provision of independent legal advice prior to arranging a telecommunication conference with your appointed legal adviser.
- You must attend the telecommunication conference with your appointed legal adviser within 12 months from the date your order was accepted by us. We will not be responsible for refunding you where you fail to attend such within 12 months, and any refunds in such circumstances will be made in our sole and absolute discretion. If you do not show up for your meeting with your appointed legal adviser, or are more than 10 minutes late for your meeting, you may be charged for additional legal time.
- Where a delay is caused by circumstances beyond our reasonable control, we will usually try to start or restart the services as soon as the issue causing the delay has been resolved. If the services are delayed by more than 7 days, we will email you to let you know and offer you the option to either continue waiting until the issue has been resolved (if this is possible) or to cancel your order and get a refund of any advance payments made by you for any services that have not yet been provided.

We will give you the option to re-confirm your order at the correct price or to cancel your order. If we are unable to contact you, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you by email.

- you lose your right to cancel once the services are fully performed and will not be entitled to a refund even if the cancellation period has not expired;
- if the services have not been fully performed, you will be required to pay for the services we provided up to the time that you told us that you want to cancel.
