The Seller hereby acknowledges that:
a. the Seller warrants that he/she is the legal owner of the property being listed on Sell My Property Now and that the Certificate of Title of the listed property can thus verify this requirement if need be or requested of by Sell My Property Now.
b. the seller also warrants that they have given the right and authority to Sell My Property Now to advertise their property on our real estate portals. Thus we require you sign an 'authority to list' form and return this to our office. This form will be sent along with our welcome to our service letter at the time of sign up.
c. the seller is also responsible for providing the correct details of their property's address and for supplying their own and full contact details within their own members account.
d. for the purpose of the Property Stock and Business Agents Act 2002 (NSW) and the Agents Act 2003 (ACT) Sell My Property Now does not act on behalf of the seller in relation to a sale and therefore will not conduct a preliminary physical inspection of the property.
Any violation of the above points (a to e) will result in the seller's property being removed from all real estate website portals and no refund of any kind will be provided.
4. Third Party Sites
Sell My Property Now subscribes to paid and non paid third party sites ("Partner Sites"). Access to these sites is at the absolute discretion of Sell My Property Now and Sell My Property Now does not guarantee the continuity of these sites or their performance.
4a. It is possible, though doubtful, that any one of these "Partner Sites" such as Realestate.com.au; Domain.com.au; RealCommercial; 1300 Alltel and others may decide to no longer allow the listing of our clients properties onto their portals. If this were to ever occur no refund of payment (in full or part thereof) will be given.
4b. It is also up to the management of Sell My Property Now whether any contractual agreement with a "Partner Site" remains active and if a decision is made to cease operation with any of our third party sites 30 days notice will be given to existing members advising of such decision to cease listing on that "Partner(s) Site". This notice will be posted as an addendum under the heading of 'notice to existing members' and in some cases members may also be notified directly.
No refund of the original payment (in full or part thereof) will be given on any property that still remains listed once the 30 day period has ended.
4c. In the unexpected or unlikely event that the business of Sell My Property Now must cease due to an incapacity as a result of health of the Owners; bankruptcy; or a similar occurrence, 14 days notice will be given to all existing members advising of such occurrence and no refund of the original payment (in full or part thereof) will be given on any property that still remains listed once the 14 day period has ended.
4d. In any occurrence of points b and c above, notice to the members will be undertaken by issuing a statement at the end of these terms and conditions. It is in the best interests of the member to keep himself up to date with our terms and conditions as they are amended from time to time.
7. Fees and Charges
The fee we charge is for a single property per listing and includes an administration charge in creating the property profile secure members area for your use and including the online advertising campaigns. This also applies to the listing of land where only one titled block is allowed to be offered per purchased listing package.
All transactions are processed in Australian Dollars (AUD) and all charges are inclusive of GST.
a. Money Back Guarantee Service Clause: This is offered for a period of up to 5 days after the listing fee has been paid or until your listing has gone 'live' (whichever is the earliest). We do not refund any fee specifically paid for a 'featured', 'highlight' or 'premiere' ad on realestate.com.au once that listing has gone live.
b. In the event that Sell My Property Now ceases to provide REA's 45 or 60 day Premiere Ad product, along with all the features therein included, due either because this product is no longer provided by Realestate.com.au or SMPN terminates their Premiere Ad subscription, no refund (wholly or partially) will be offered for any listing feature or upgrade that was originally included within the Premiere Ad product offering.
Additionally, no refund will be given in the event that a current member purchases a 'featured', 'highlighted' or 'premiere' listing ad upgrade on Realestate.com.au once the upgraded ad has been activated live on their property's listing.
If it found that a member requesting his money back under this service clause has broken any of the remaining points of our general terms & conditions herein then that member forfeits any rights to receive a return of their payment. Also, if certain of our T&C such as those of say point 4, were ever to occur then our money back guarantee would not be offered or provided in those cases.
