Property Finding Service
Terms and Conditions
Unique Home Stays Ltd Property Finding Service endeavours to find you the perfect property, whether that be for inclusion within the Unique Home Stays portfolio or as a private home. These Terms and Conditions relate to the Unique Home Stays Ltd Property Finding Service within the UK only, with alternative terms available on request for Property Finding in Europe.
Unique Home Stays agrees to provide a Property Finding Service to the Client which includes the following:
Brief An initial discussion to ascertain your requirements, without obligation. We will detail your search requirements to clarify the search focus areas, assessing suitability for the property type you are looking for in terms of the Unique Home Stays portfolio.
Search Once payment of the Search Fee is received, we will begin working on your behalf to provide you with potential properties. This search will include internet portals, developers, auction houses, local and national press, national and independent estate agents and any properties being sold privately in a discreet manner.
Visit We will keep you informed of the search process at all times, and will provide you with a maximum of 10 properties to consider before requesting that you select your preferred three to progress to visit stage.
Report We will view the three preferred properties of your choice, assessing their suitability in terms of your brief and the Unique Home Stays portfolio. Post-visit, we will provide you with a property report detailing our findings in addition to any improvements that would be required.
Offer At point of making an offer, Unique Home Stays can negotiate with the estate agent on your behalf providing there is no conflict of interest.
Property Finding services will be provided for either a period of up to four months, or on provision of the recommendation of 10 properties meeting the client requirements. If a suitable property has not been found by the end of the period agreed, an additional Search Fee would be required.
The Unique Home Stays Property Finding Service fee comprises two elements – a Search Fee and a Success Fee.
Search Fee The Search Fee is £1000 plus VAT. This is a non-refundable fee which includes the services as detailed above.
The Success Fee The Success Fee is due when Unique Home Stays successfully secures a property purchase for the Client. The fee is 1.5% plus VAT of the purchase price or 10% plus VAT, if greater of the saving negotiated between the documented asking price and the final purchase price. The Success Fee is payable on exchange of contracts and is chargeable if the Client purchases a property introduced by Unique Home Stays, or any other property that the Client instructs Unique Home Stays to inspect or to enter negotiations on. The Success Fee remains due if the Client purchases any property that meets the conditions outlined above within one year of the contract termination date.
