How to complain about content uploaded by other users

If you wish to complain about content uploaded by other users, please contact us through email. Clearly state the nature of any complaint in sufficient detail and provide any accompanying evidence which you think is material in respect of such complaint.

Account deletion

If you do not agree with our Terms of Use, you should delete or request to terminate your account. You should also submit in writing your request to terminate your account through email. Only on written confirmation will your account be deleted and removed from our platform. Due to the number of emails, you should seek a response specifically referencing the matter and not an automated response.

Advert deletion

All adverts must include accurate information. If any significant details have been left out or false information has been provided, we may decide to cancel your advert. You will have 7 days from the date of any such cancellation to find a resolution or delete your advert permanently without a refund.

If our guidelines are not followed, and we feel that your advert may harm our business, we may ask you to change your advert or have your advert removed. You are required to make your advert reasonable and of a similar standard with others. Short or brief adverts may be removed if not corrected within 7 days of being notified and after removal, no refund shall be given.

Our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you should keep limitations universal for all users. For example, if you are an individual but have portfolios of properties, then you are a sophisticated user or a business user.

We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. It includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors and for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation.

We exclude all implied conditions, warranties, representations or other terms that may apply to our website or any content on it.

Compliance & risk assessment

We carry out anti-money laundering, politically exposed and title checks on all our clients. Every vendor, buyer, landlord and tenant will be checked appropriately and the data will be stored in an online-based risk assessment platform. We use a third-party company to carry out these checks on our behalf and will share the data needed.

We may require additional information to meet the standards required. Should for any reason a check returns a poor or negative score, we are entitled to refuse, reject your transaction. We may also suspend your account and report you to the national crime agency if we suspect suspicious behaviour or known personnel. You will not be entitled to a refund should such an incident occur.

We are actively monitoring and auditing all of our customers. Verifying your identity is an essential part of business operation. Should you fail to comply, your account may be suspended and terminated. We may inform the relevant authorities. We DO NOT have to disclose any reason, why we have refused, rejected or suspended your transaction or account.
