A ‘Deemed Contract’ is where no formal agreement has been made between the Customer and their Licensed Provider of the premises.

Under Scottish Law, Customers under a Deemed Contract are required to pay for services they receive.

You may be on a deemed contract if:

  • The premises was confirmed as a Gap Site and assigned a Licensed Provider
  • You move into a premises that has an existing Licensed Provider

Licensed Providers must clearly mark Deemed Contract invoices. When applicable, this can be found on PURE’s invoices, top centre of the front page.
