Terms and Conditions of Business of eMoov Limited
Our terms should be read in conjunction with the law of England and Wales and in particular, law of contract.
The wording contained herein represents an offer to treat. Your acceptance of our terms of business is performed when successful payment is made by a third party ‘customer' in favour of eMoov Limited, howsoever made.
No liability is accepted or should be seen as being implied in so far as third parties employed by eMoov and their actions or inactions. Nor should any liability be assumed in so far as eMoov supplied goods such as for sale boards being used inappropriately by third parties and causing damage to property. No liability is accepted by eMoov in any respect whatsoever where circumstances beyond its control may lead to any loss or inconvenience.
Fee Options and Policy
Our £595 inc vat option is our most popular as it involves no completion fee*. There are no admin fees or costs for alterations or amendments to your ad. There are no withdrawal fees and no sole agency tie-ins or penalty fees. *Our 'List Now Pay Later' offer is an interest free (0%) loan repayable in full 12 months from sign up (or at the earlier legal completion of your sale if you prefer). Funding is provided by Retail Money Market Limited t/a RateSetter. A credit agreement is required and which may involve a 'light' credit check with a credit reference agency. The £595 may be paid by credit card, debit card or via Paypal up front instead of deferring payment via the RateSetter option if you wish.
Our 'no sale-no fee' option means exactly that. You only pay £1,195 inc vat on legal completion of a sale where the sale was effected by emoov.co.uk by way of an introduction and/or viewing appointment made whether carried out or not. Upon legal completion of a sale involving any viewing party that eMoov arranges an appointment for the fee is payable within three working days of legal completion and you hereby confirm that you contract with us to ensure that this is paid by your property lawyer directly to us from the proceeds of sale. Interest may be added to this amount if payment is not made within the time.
Definition: A sale is the proceeding of a third party with a purchase of the instructed property in question which was subject to the involvement of eMoov in any way. A viewing appointment, whether actually carried out or not, a negotiated offer or an involvement by way of eMoov's substantive communication with the party that subsequently purchased, will be deemed as ‘involvement'. Merely providing a set of details will not be constituted as substantive communication however a regular contact over the same property would be.
eMoov does not operate restrictive sole agency agreements or penalty fees. There are no contractual time period tie-ins. You are free to instruct any or as many alternative or additional estate agents in conjunction with the eMoov service as you wish. No cancellation refunds apply.
The selling/letting customer will verify information displayed by eMoov in relation to their property and will advise eMoov of any inaccuracies. Any material changes which may affect a property's description post instruction must be informed to eMoov by the selling customer. eMoov online estate agents comply with the Consumer Protection Regulations 2008. An Energy Performance Certificate is a legal requirement in England and Wales and must be in place and displayed with the ad listing within 7 days of the ad being published. A Home Report is a legal requirement in Scotland and is the responsibility of the selling client to have in place before a property can be advertised for sale.
eMoov will offer its selling, buying and letting clients and prospective purchasers and tenants additional services via our partners such as mortgages, insurances, pensions, low cost conveyancing, utility switching and other products from which eMoov Limited may derive commission.
Conveyancing work is carried out by carefully selected third party conveyancing partners but to which eMoov have no financial stake and thus no liability is accepted on our part in respect of these third parties.
Our low cost conveyancing deal at £360.00 inv VAT upon completion applies to freehold property sales and, separately, to freehold purchases and is dependent upon securing this offer by way of initial, up front premium part-payment of £120.00 inc VAT at the time that instructions are received to sell the client's property. Otherwise our standard fee applies to freehold sales and purchases plus disbursements. The £120 inc VAT premium is not refundable under any circumstances. Disbursement costs are payable additionally. A leasehold supplement applies at £180.00 inc VAT per transaction. Deal applies to sales and purchases to a value of £500,000. A supplement of £120.00 inc VAT applies thereafter. Please note, discounted conveyancing is only available for properties in England and Wales.
Please note that special offers from time to time relating to EPC's, Rightmove and Zoopla Premium Listings etc are dependent upon the purchase of a marketing package and are not available as stand alone items.

It cannot give any representations, assurances, undertakings or warranties about the accuracy, correctness or fitness for purpose regarding the site or any website referred to by it (‘third party site').
eMoov does not approve or endorse any information contained on any third party site and accepts no responsibility for this information or its content. Emoov Limited therefore accepts no liability in connection with any information held on a third party site.
The contents of the company's website and its hard copy documentation are the copyright of the company. You may make copies for your personal use only. You are not allowed to copy and distribute its contents in any way without the prior consent of the company. You should seek appropriate professional advice before taken any action based on any information held on this site.
eMoov Limited cannot be held responsible for content on third party portal sites. The websites that we display as partner sites are representative only and may change from time to time at the behest of others.
Fee comparisons and statements made by eMoov relating to fee savings compared to other/traditional/high street estate agents are formulated using average house price data from sources such as HM Land Registry; the Halifax; WHICH?, the Nationwide and our own records and calculated using typical, accepted alternative estate agency fee costs as published by sources including the Halifax and the Office of Fair Trading (2010 report) from time to time.
Credit and Debit Card Payments
Credit and debit card payments are accepted for payment in respect of the company’s marketing services and optional ‘add ons’ such as photography, sign boards, energy performance certificates, conveyancing products and so on.
Please read these terms carefully before using the online payments facility. Use of company’s online payments application on this website indicates your acceptance of these terms. If you do not accept these terms please do not use the online payments facility on this website.
The company cannot accept any liability if payment is refused, or declined, by the debit / credit card supplier. The company has no control over acceptance over acceptance of card payments and any refusal of payment should be taken up with your card supplier.
eMoov Limited does not store credit or debit card details of any kind.
Confirmation of Payment
Once your payment has been authorised, the application will display a confirmation screen showing the payment details and a UNIQUE transaction reference number. You can print this screen as your receipt for your payment. These details will also be e-mailed to you if you have supplied the system with a valid e-mail address during the transaction. Please keep a note of the transaction receipt number, as you will need to quote this if you have any queries with your payment. Your receipt will not show your debit / credit card details, so if your receipt is lost or stolen, your card details will remain confidential.
If your payment is refused, the application will display a screen informing you of this.
Remember – it is not the company that is refusing your card payment – it is the card issuing bank that is refusing to authorise the payment. If this occurs you will need to contact your card company to discuss the reasons for the refusal.
Where an overpayment occurs a refund will be issued following a request. Where overpayment was initially made by debit/credit card, refunds shall normally be made by bank transfer. Where a payment by any means has been made to the company that payment is final and no refunds will be due. The company instigates various costs at the outset of a property being instructed to it and thus refunds will not be entertained where a customer changes their mind or is subject to a change of circumstances notwithstanding prevailing legislation including the Consumer Protection Regulations 2000 whereby commencement of performance of the contract is deemed to take place at the point that our assessors are instructed. In the event that a customer cancels within 14 days of payment but before 24 hours prior to the assessor home visit, a refund will be made assuming that no costs have been incurred by eMoov. By proceeding with payment you accept that you have given eMoov express consent to incur immediate costs however.
Pay Later with RateSetter
By entering into this agreement you consent to our commencing the provision of our services within your 14 day cancellation period. This means that if you decide to cancel the contract, you will only be entitled to a partial refund for the elements of the service not already provided.
