Your responsibilities

We are not an estate agency and we provide a service whereby agents may market and you may view property details ('Details') together with other content hosted and developed by us. Agents are responsible for preparing the Details and fielding enquiries directly from you. We do not get involved in any communications between you and agents and we do not participate in any part of the transaction.

Details are hosted by us in good faith but are produced directly by agents and have not been verified by us. You are responsible for making your own enquiries and we provide no guarantee and accept no responsibility for the accuracy or completeness of any information contained within the Details.

  • You are responsible for checking, confirming and satisfying yourself as to the accuracy of any Details.
  • You are responsible for instructing a surveyor and obtaining legal advice before committing to any purchase.
  • You are responsible for ensuring that you act in good faith towards any other parties.

We strive to ensure that our website and the Services are available to you at all times but cannot guarantee that either the website or the Services will operate continuously, without interruptions or be fault free. On occasion, necessary maintenance or upgrade work requires us to make the website and the Services unavailable without notice, but we aim to keep downtime to a minimum. We accept no liability for any interruption or loss of service. We reserve the absolute right to alter, suspend or discontinue any part of our website or the Services, including your access to it.

The Services are provided on an 'as is' and 'as available' basis and we make no representations or warranties of any kind, either express or implied. You expressly agree that your use of our website and the Services is at your sole risk and we expressly disclaim any and all warranties, either express or implied, including without limitation warranties as to quality, suitability for any purpose, compatibility, reliability, accuracy, completeness, timeliness, access or use. We accept no responsibility and make no guarantee that the Services will be free from faults, errors and/or omissions. It is your sole responsibility to evaluate the quality, suitability, accuracy, completeness and reliability of the Services or any information provided.

The value estimates provided on our website are intended for general interest and information purposes only and should not be relied upon for any commercial transaction or similar use. These estimates are based on a) publicly available information which may be inaccurate or incomplete and b) typical properties in certain locations. They will not take account of any factors which are unknown to us and should therefore only be used as a starting guide to help determine what a home might be worth. None of the Services are intended to be a substitute for independent professional advice and users are recommended to seek advice from suitably qualified professionals such as surveyors and solicitors if relevant to their particular circumstances. We shall not be liable for any losses suffered as a result of relying on our value estimates.

Property descriptions and other information provided on our website are intended for information and marketing purposes and, whilst displayed in good faith, we will not in any circumstances accept responsibility for their accuracy. The property advert pages on our website do not constitute property particulars and these should be available directly from the agent marketing the property. It is the responsibility of prospective buyers/tenants to satisfy themselves as to the accuracy of any property descriptions displayed and the responsibility of agents to ensure the accuracy and integrity of property descriptions provided on our website and in any property particulars.

Limitation of liability

In no event shall we nor any of our officers, shareholders, directors, employees, agents or suppliers be liable for any loss or direct, indirect, consequential, incidental, special or any other damages arising from your use of the Services. Should you not agree with any part of these Terms of Use or have any dispute or claim against us or our suppliers with respect to these Terms of Use or the Services, your sole and exclusive remedy will be to discontinue using the Services.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing in this clause is intended to limit any statutory rights you may have as a consumer which may not be excluded nor in any way to exclude or limit our liability to you for personal injury or death caused by our negligence.

Indemnification

You agree to indemnify, defend and hold us and our affiliated companies, shareholders, officers, directors, employees, agents or suppliers harmless from any and all claims or demands, made by any third party due to or arising out of your use of the Services, the violation of these Terms of Use by you, or the infringement by you of any intellectual property or other right of any other person or entity.

Changes to Terms of Use

We reserve the right in our sole discretion to change these Terms of Use at any time without prior notice to you. Any changes will be posted on our website and become effective at the time of posting. Your continued use of the Services after the effective date of such changes will constitute acceptance of and agreement to any such changes. We reserve the right to modify, suspend or discontinue all or part of the Services at any time to you and/or others, with or without notice. We shall not be liable to you or any other party should we exercise our right to modify, suspend or discontinue all or part of the Services.

Applicable law

These Terms of Use shall be governed by and construed in accordance with English law and the parties agree that any disputes will be settled in English courts, save that we may take action in any relevant jurisdiction to enforce our intellectual property rights. Should any provision of these Terms of Use be determined to be invalid or unenforceable by any court having competent jurisdiction, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be replaced with a provision that reflects the intent of the original provision, to the extent permitted by applicable law and all other provisions of these Terms of Use shall remain in full force and effect.

The headings in these Terms of Use are solely used for convenience and have no legal or contractual significance. We may assign this Agreement, in whole or in part, at any time without notice to you and upon such assignment will be relieved of any further obligation under these Terms of Use. You may not assign, transfer or sublicense your rights, if any, under these Terms of Use. Our delay or failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Use with respect to a breach by you or others shall not constitute or be construed as a waiver of such right to act.
