These are the terms and conditions on which we supply our online property e-valuation tool to you. Please read these terms carefully before you submit details of a property to us as doing so will form a contract between us based strictly on these terms and conditions. All use of our e-valuation tool is strictly subject to these terms and conditions.

What is our property e-valuation tool? Our property e-valuation tool provides you with an estimate valuation of the property based on the details of the property you provide. Our property e-valuation tool uses these details and compares them to publicly available data relating to property characteristics and sales in your area to provide you with an estimate value for that property.

When we will provide our services. We will begin providing you with our services, being the property valuation using our property e-valuation tool, when you submit the details of a property to our property e-valuation tool via our website, provide your contact details and accept these terms and conditions by ticking the “I agree to the Terms & Conditions” box. After submitting these details, our property e-valuation tool should provide you with a property valuation based on the details you entered. At this point we will have finished providing you with our services and the contract will be ended.

What will happen if you do not provide the required information. We need certain information about the property so we can supply our property e-valuation tool to you, for example, the type of property address, number of bedrooms etc. If you do not provide all of this required information to our property e-valuation tool or if you provide incomplete or incorrect information, the valuation may be unavailable and/or inaccurate. We will not be responsible for either the failure to supply our property e-valuation tool or the inaccuracy of the valuation if this is caused by you not giving us the information needed for our property e-valuation tool to provide you with an estimate.

Our property e-valuation tool is a guide only. By making available our property e-valuation tool to you, we are not providing you with estate agency services. Please be aware the valuations provided by our property e-valuation tool are estimates and not formal valuations of the property. The valuation is based on publicly available information which may be inaccurate and/or incomplete. The estimates may also be based on assumptions and typical factors or trends in certain areas and/or in relation to certain types of property. The valuation is intended to be of general interest and provide you with a useful guide to the likely value of a property and this valuation should be supplemented by you with additional research, professional advice and a market appraisal. We are not supplying you with advice or recommendations. If you are thinking about selling your property, please arrange for a formal valuation of your property by following the link provided to book a market appraisal with an estate agent. If you click this link, you agree to us storing, processing and sharing your personal data (including your name and email address) with our affiliated professionals to facilitate the provision of such market appraisal. We shall not be liable for any losses suffered as a result of relying on valuations provided by our property e-valuation tool.

Where we can, we will endeavour to let you know if any of these events occur via an error message when using our property e-valuation tool. As we do not gather your contact details before you use our property e-valuation tool, we will not be able to contact you in advance to tell you we will be suspending supply of our property e-valuation tool.

However, as our property e-valuation tool provides you with the requested valuation for a property almost immediately after you submit the property details and agree to these terms and conditions, the contract between us for the provision to you of our services ends almost immediately after it has been entered into. This means there is not time for you to exercise your rights to cancel this contract.

We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these terms and conditions, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer which is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage which is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen.

We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to our property e-valuation tool including the right to receive services which are as described and match information we provided to you about our property e-valuation tool and supplied with reasonable skill and care.

We are not liable for business losses. We only supply our property e-valuation tool for domestic and private use. If you use our property e-valuation tool for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, loss of business opportunity or indirect or consequential loss.

(c) Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.

(d) Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings. These terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of our property e-valuation tool in the English courts. If you live in Scotland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of our property e-valuation tool in either the Scottish or the English courts. If you live in Northern Ireland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of our property e-valuation tool in either the Northern Irish or the English courts.

(e) The Property Ombudsman’s alternative dispute resolution service. Alternative dispute resolution is a process where an independent body, such as The Property Ombudsman considers the facts of a dispute and seeks to resolve it, without you having to go to court. If you are not happy with how we have handled any complaint, you may want to contact The Property Ombudsman. You can submit a complaint to The Property Ombudsman via their website at www.tpos.co.uk . The Property Ombudsman will not charge you for making a complaint and if you are not satisfied with the outcome you can still bring legal proceedings. In addition, please note that disputes may be submitted for online resolution to the European Commission Online Dispute Resolution platform.
