Further, you confirm that you have all relevant authorities and authorisations as are necessary or required to enable you to take advantage of the Products and Services.
We will only charge you the Advertised Rates for the Products and Services. The Advertised Rates include VAT and are fixed. We reserve the right to make a charge for the costs charged by the credit card company to YourBricks.
Ways to pay
We may from time to time offer different methods of payment. You may be given the option to:
If you choose to Pay Now you will receive a credit/debit card invoice via PayPal and we will debit that amount from your card.
If you choose to Pay Later we will provide you with the ability to do so subject to the Pay Later Terms. You will be required to make payment for the Products and Services taken by you on the Deferred Payment Date and otherwise in accordance with the Pay Later Terms.
If you believe you have been billed in error notify us immediately by emailing hello@Yourbricks.ie.
Cancellations and refunds
Once you have ordered Products and Services you will be charged immediately for the amount due by YourBricks whether you choose to Pay Now or Pay Later. Where you choose Pay Later you will not pay for the Products and Services until full payment is due in accordance with the Pay Later Terms.
Should you wish to cancel or withdraw any Products and Services you may do so at any time. However, under no circumstances will any full or part credit be made in respect of Advertised Rates.
You can withdraw your advert at any time by notifying us via the YB platform. In certain circumstances you may be able to re-list the property within a designated period after withdrawal. Details will be made available at the time of seeking to withdraw/relist your Advert.
Approving your advert
It is a legal requirement for you to have commissioned a BER before we are able to start the marketing of your property. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have a valid and up to date BER in place before your Advert goes live.
Advertising and Marketing
We will advertise and market your property Daft.ie and MyHome.ie. We may withdraw or no longer take advantage of the services of such property portals, websites or publications at our absolute discretion.
For Sale Signs
Where you instruct YourBricks to sell your property, we will arrange for one ‘For Sale’ sign to be erected free of charge (if included as part of the Products and Services). All subsequent signs will be charged at the Advertised Rates in force from time to time.
In terms of sales where we provide a complimentary ‘For Sale’ sign:
All signs shall belong to YourBricks although it is your responsibility to ensure they are safe and secure and preserved for collection once the property is sold or is withdrawn from the market;
If we cannot collect a sign that we are able to use again we will charge you to replace the sign at the rates in force at that time.
Subject to Interruption viewings will be arranged and recorded through the YB platform. You will be notified immediately a viewing is booked. We will provide you with the name of the person(s) who wish to view together with the date and time.
If you take advantage of the viewings service offered by YourBricks, we will conduct all of your viewings for a fixed price as advertised from time to time. Under these circumstances, it is still your responsibility to ensure that the property is ready and prepared for the viewing, is in a safe condition and that YourBricks has access to the property at the date and time of the viewing.
In the event we have conducted a large number of viewings on your behalf and you have received regular feedback to suggest that the price of the property is too high, we will want to conduct a review to discuss the best way forward. We reserve the right to withdraw the viewings service at any time but only where we consider that it is unreasonable to expect YourBricks to continue to accompany viewings taking into account the number of viewings and the feedback received. However, there will be no full or part credit in respect of Advertised Rates under these circumstances.
Recording your viewing availability
We will not permit anyone to arrange a viewing or see availability for viewings who has not registered and been subject of our verification procedure.
Subject to Interruption you will receive offers immediately as they are made via the YB platform. The nature, extent, position of the potential purchaser will be requested and provided to you automatically as the offer is made.
The information will always be made available exactly how it is provided by the potential purchaser or tenant through the YB platform.
You will get a choice whether to accept the offer or reject the offer.
We will provide you as far as reasonably practicable with advice and assistance once a sale is agreed in accordance with our Post Sale Charter. If you have chosen the Platinum package you will receive full assistance to closing.
Provision of personal information
We will always inform you as soon as we become aware of anyone making an offer for your property that is in any way connected with YourBricks; whether they are employed, a contractor, family member or providing services to us.
Before your Advert is published, YourBricks will ask you whether you are in any way connected with YourBricks; whether you are employed, a contractor, family member or providing services to us. This will be disclosed to all potential purchasers or tenants.
Third party companies
We will introduce to you, where we deem appropriate and or necessary, third party services such as mortgages, insurance, letting services and conveyancing but only where we reasonably believe that you require such services. The services being provided are in your best interests and the third party companies are capable and required to provide you with an exceptional service.
We may receive commission for introducing you but only when you agree to take advantage of such products or services. You may decide of your own free will and we will never require you to use such products or services.
Availability of the Products
Whilst we will make all reasonable efforts to ensure that the Products and Services are available at all times, YourBricks does not guarantee, represent or warrant that your access to any of the Products will be uninterrupted or error-free.
We will always make all reasonable efforts to ensure that all Content submitted by you to us will be secure. We cannot guarantee that the YB platform, Products and Services, the Systems or the Website will be free from loss, corruption, attack, viruses, ‘worms’, ‘trojan horses’ or other harmful components, or from interference, hacking or other security intrusions. You should be sure to back up your own system periodically to ensure that all Content available to you and located within your Account, is available to you in the event of any loss or damage as YourBricks reserves the right to remove or suspend all or any part of the Content, at any time in accordance with these terms.
All Advertised Rates applicable to Landlords and Tenants will be published on the Website and/or YB platform. It is your responsibility to make sure you read details in advance of instructing YourBricks.
Right of cancellation
YourBricks services are deemed to have been provided in their entirety where your Advert has been published.
NOTICE OF THE RIGHT TO CANCEL
Please note: In the event that we have made your advert live by advertising it on www.Yourbricks.ie, www.myhome.ie or www.daft.ie, we will for the purposes of the regulations have provided you an advertising service and as such you will not be entitled to a refund.
