99Home Limited’s Standard Terms & Conditions of Appointment for The Marketing of Commercial Property.

**Incorporating the mandatory requirements of the Estate Agents Act 1979 (The Act)


The terms of the Agreement should be read with reference to the proposal Letter Attached. The Client agrees to appoint 99Home, as marketing agents for property subject to the following Terms of Agreement. 99Home includes all subsidiary or holding companies or connected companies. 



The Client owns the property (Freehold or Leasehold). For the avoidance of doubt, this includes existing and proposed ownership.


This will be as set in the Proposal Letter on the basis of either sole selling / letting rights or sole, joint sole, or multi-agency (see Definitions below).                          




The specific right is reserved to appoint one or more sub-agents, at the sole discretion of 99home Limited (at no additional cost to the client) unless specifically instructed in writing to the contrary by the client. The terms of this agreement will not be affected if the sub-agents(s) sub-instruct any other agents(s).



The client is requested to sign and return the enclosed duplicate copy of the Proposal Letter as soon as possible thereby confirming instructions so that marketing may begin. Once an instruction is confirmed, all the terms are deemed accepted by the client and cannot be varied except by written agreement. Until such time as the duplicate proposal letter is returned, the terms of the agreement shall be deemed to have been confirmed if verbal instructions to that effect are given by the client. 



The Client confirms that at the date of this agreement, there are no prospective purchasers/tenants, from any source, who have expressed an interest in the property. Details of any such parties must be advised to 99Home Limited in writing prior to marketing commencing, otherwise if they are subsequently introduced or we have negotiations with the same then a full fee entitlement will arise. 


SUBMISSION OF OFFERS              Initial by Landlord / Seller: .............................................

All offers received for the property will be forwarded to the Client as soon as reasonably practicable, other than those at a level below, subject to conditions, which the Client has previously instructed in writing are to be disregarded. Where the property is let at a progressive rent over the first review period the fee will be calculated on the basis of the average rent payable up to the first rent review. 



Commission will become due, upon completion, in the event of a surrender of your lease being affected to either the immediate, intermediate, or superior landlord. 



The fee will be calculated as set out in the proposal letter. If it is agreed on a percentage basis this will relate to the sale price at which contracts are exchanged( plus any amount for key money, fixtures, fittings, or business values, etc..) or to the annual exclusive(headline) rental disregarding any rent free periods or similar incentives, whichever is appropriate. Premium includes any payment for key money, goodwill, fixtures, fittings, and/or business value. 



99Home Limited reserves the right to undertake a credit check on the client company before accepting instructions. The check will be undertaken in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998. 



Any non-agency work undertaken during the course of the marketing of the property (e.g. organisation of contractors, negotiating schedule of condition, submission of planning applications, insurance valuations, etc.) will be charged separately over and above the agency free on a quantum merit basis. 



The client agrees to pay the fees set out in the proposal letter attached hereto, which will become due upon exchange of contracts or the authorised grant of possession if earlier and as set out under the various headings in’ Definition’. Full fees will be payable in the event of a ‘’ready, willing and able purchaser/ tenant’’ (see Definitions) being introduced when the client withdraws from the transaction. Where a transaction is taking place and the deposit or completion monies will cover our fees, such fees can be recovered by 99Home Limited directly from the transaction proceeds held by solicitors if fees have not already been paid by that date. Payment on invoices is due by return. Interest may be charged on any late payments, together with debit recovery costs, in accordance with the Late Payment of Commercial Debts Regulations 2002 from the date when payment is due.



Fees charged upon the basis of Quantum Meruit relate to the time spent by a member of this in providing the professional services required which will include travelling time. This time is charged at an hourly rate according to the professional status and qualifications of the member concerned and the circumstances of the work being undertaken. Current hourly rates are available on request subject to a minimum of £150 per hour. 


Cost or estimate of advertising expenditure or other marketing material will be based upon quoted media/supplier prices. 99Home Limited will be entitled to receive and retain any commission/discount on orders for goods. Services placed on the client’s behalf. The client will also reimburse 99Home Limited for all reasonable disbursement in addition to the agreed fee. Disbursements include. For example, courier delivery, photography, key cutting, plan copying, obtaining bank references, etc. Marketing expenses will be invoiced as and when

arising. Interest may be charged on late payments, together with debt recovery costs, in accordance with the Late Payment of Commercial Debts Regulations 2002. 



This agreement will continue for a minimum period of three months or until completion of the transaction and will continue until either party gives twenty-eight days’ notice of termination to the other. No other agents are to be instructed without the agreement of the sole or joint agents. In the event of withdrawal of instructions, any outstanding recoverable marketing expenses will become due forthwith. If instructions are terminated, then the Client will be liable for abortive time and expenditure incurred by 99Home Limited. After termination of instruction, the Client will remain liable for the full fee to 99Home Limited in the vent of the premises being let or sold to any parties introduced by 99Home Limited prior to termination of instructions. 




Where keys for the property are held by 99Home Limited, these may be temporarily lent to prospective purchasers/lessees unless the Client gives written instruction to the contrary. All reasonable efforts will be made to ensure the safe return and control of keys but 99Home Limited will not be responsible for any loss arising. 



99Home Limited does not accept responsibility for the maintenance, security, repair of, or loss relating to unoccupied premises, unless previously appointed in writing to manage the property. Clients remain responsible for the insurance property. 




No responsibility can be accepted by 99Home Limited for any errors or omissions in the drafting of legal documentation by the client's legal advisor. Any options expressed by 99Home Limited whether verbally or in writing must be checked with your solicitors. 



The Client indemnifies 99Home Limited for all and any losses resulting from incorrect information provided by the Client whether deliberate or accidental. 



The act requires 99Home Limited to disclose to the client and prospective purchasers/tenants any family relationship or business associations between the client or a purchaser/ tenant or any employee of 99Home Limited, its subsidiaries, or any other business within 99Home Limited. Any such disclosures will be notified in writing as soon as possible after the circumstances become known.
