In order to use the Services you will be required to complete certain personal information about yourself (“Personal Details”) so that we can open an account on your behalf (“User Account”). In addition, you will be required to complete relevant property details (“Property Details”) in relation to the Property. It is your responsibility to ensure that these Personal Details and Property Details are correct.
We will send your pseudonymised Personal Details and Property Details to Estate Agents who operate in the area the Property is located (“Bid”). For a list of Estate Agents who operate in your area please see the relevant area of the Website. We will use our reasonable endeavours to ensure that your Personal Details and Property Details will be in such a format so that an Estate Agent cannot easily identify either you or the Property but we offer no form of guarantee that this will be the case.
Estate Agents that we submit the Bid too will be invited to submit a tender (“Quote”) in order to market the Property on your behalf. Please note that we cannot guarantee that a particular Estate Agent or indeed any Estate Agent will submit a Quote.
Once we receive a Quote we will use our reasonable endeavours to notify you that we have received a Quote. After quoting the agent will be supplied with a receipt email with your name but no contact details will be supplied to the agent. When creating a User Account, you will receive an email from us notifying you that a Quote has been received and inviting you to access your User Account.
You can select a number of Quotes to proceed with following which we will transfer such Personal Details as are requested by the Estate Agents along with all previously anonymised Property Details to the selected Estate Agents.
The Estate Agents should then contact you in order to arrange a full valuation of the Property. We cannot provide you with any guarantee that an Estate Agent will at this stage contact you.
You should make your own arrangements with the Estate Agents in order to meet with them and agree to the Estate Agent’s Terms as well as any other relevant terms that may apply to your contractual relationship with the Estate Agents. For the avoidance of doubt we are not a party to any contract you enter into with the Estate Agents and we make no representation as to the reasonableness or otherwise of the Estate Agent’s Terms.
Please note that we are only provided with limited information, at a point in time, in respect of properties listed on our website. Estate Agents’ fees are calculated based on this limited information – as a result we cannot always guarantee Estate Agents will honour their marketing proposals (in respect of fees or otherwise) where a property differs from the information available. If an Estate Agent does not honour their marketing proposal you should notify us as so that we can update our system and/or remove the Estate Agent from our listings.
The Estate Agent has agreed to pay us a fee (“Commission”) as a percentage of the sale price of the Property which shall be taken out of the total commission the Estate Agent receives upon the sale of the Property. You agree to make the necessary arrangement with the Estate Agent in order to permit payment to us of the Commission out of the total commission due to the Estate Agent from the proceeds of sale of the Property.
You must notify us immediately after exchange of contracts and completion takes place in relation to the sale of the Property.
From time to time we may offer cashback (“Cashback”) upon completion of the sale of the Property. To the extent that we offer any such Cashback, you will only receive the Cashback subject to compliance with the terms on which it is offered.
By submitting your Personal Details and Property Details, you make an offer to us to use our Services and enter into a contract with us (“Contract”) which shall be subject to these Terms.
We reserve the right to reject your offer at our sole discretion. Your offer shall not be deemed accepted by us until we have emailed you a confirmatory message confirming your User Account details and the Contract between us and you shall be formed at the date and time we send the confirmatory message to you.

Other than as provided within clause 2 we do not have any communication with the Estate Agent and we shall have no responsibility for any act, omission or responsibility by the Estate Agent in any way whatsoever.
