Terms and Conditions

The Letting Centre forms and agreements may be produced by the Licence Holder in unlimited quantities at the specified business address for the period of the licence, subject to the terms and conditions below.  Due to changes in legislation and related regulations, our forms and agreements are subject to regular review and the licence holder is also entitled to all revisions during the licence period.

Extensive research goes into the preparation and revision of the Letting Centre forms in order to provide the most effective guidance documents and tenancy forms for landlords and letting agents.  Before you use them, please read through any accompanying drafting notes which have been prepared with the assistance of our specialists, and the brief information below.

RESALE.  It is a condition of this licence that the document(s) may be used only for purposes of the letting business of the licence holder and are not suitable for online business models.  The document(s) may not be resold or distributed on a similar commercial basis for any other purpose.      

COPYRIGHT.  You are granted a licence to reproduce the specified documents at the designated business premises or office as required.  However, in order to protect our copyright, we request that our copyright notice is always clearly displayed on any reproduction of the documents (whether they are reproduced as a whole or in part). No Professional Series agreements or any part of these forms or agreements should be published on any internet site or similar media without prior written agreement from The Letting Centre.

The general terms and conditions of sale below apply to The Letting Centre Ltd hereinafter known as the Letting Centre.

1. DEFINITIONS.  Certain Letting Centre agreements, forms and other documents prepared by ourselves may be provided to the customer under an annual subscription licence.

No other variation of these conditions shall be binding upon the Letting Centre unless previously agreed in writing by The Letting Centre.

3. PAYMENT TERMS AND INTEREST. Goods or services are payable in advance unless offered otherwise in writing.  Credit terms will be made available on selected products and our terms in this instance are strictly 30 days.  Any amounts not received in full by the date due will incur interest at the rate of 2% per month accruing daily.

This means that no part or parts of any document may be stored in any retrieval system or reproduced or transmitted in any form by means of electronic, mechanical or reprographic reproduction or recording or otherwise without a current licence agreement or other prior written agreement from the Letting Centre. (see para 6 below).
