7. Purchaser’s Responsibility
It is your responsibility to confirm that you are in a position to obtain financial products and services to proceed with any property purchase. Closefield Property Ltd acts as a property-sourcing agent only and is not responsible for the arranging of any loans or financial products. We strongly advise all purchasers to seek proper financial and legal advice before proceeding with any purchase and to make sure that any financial products are available to you. Reservation fees, property sourcing fees and fees associated with costs which are paid to Closefield Property Ltd by purchasers are non-refundable for any reason and as such should not be paid until you have carried out full due diligence for each investment and have satisfied yourself as to your ability to purchase any property sourced by Closefield Property Ltd. All investment figures and deal structure examples contained within the Closefield Property Ltd marketing materials are indicative and meant for guidance and marketing purposes only. It is your responsibility to source and secure any financial product or mortgage required or deemed necessary in order to complete on a property purchase. We can introduce you to companies to assist you with all aspects of property investment but it must be understood that such introductions are made in good faith only and you will enter into separate contracts with those companies that are introduced. Property deals may offer incentives or special offers by third party companies such as property development companies etc. It is your responsibility to carry out your own property valuation, due diligence and any other legal or financial research and diligence required in order to assess the benefit of any special offer or incentive such as discounts or contributions or rental guarantees or any other incentive offered by any third party company.
Our prices are determined on the merits of each individual deal and how many of our services you require. Most property investment companies charge a fixed percentage of the purchase price of a property, but this disincentivises them to negotiate the best price for their customers because the higher the sale price, the more commission they get.
At Closefield Property Ltd the price we offer for each deal is dependant not only on the sale price, but also on how beneficial the deal is to our client by considering factors such as how far below market value or how high yielding the property is. This means that it is in our best interest to negotiate a lower purchase price for our clients.
We cannot guarantee that the property is suitable for purchase and all properties are sold subject to contract. Whilst we will do all that we can to secure you properties that are suitable for purchase we cannot be held responsible for properties that turn out to be unsuitable. The provision of services beyond this should be considered outside our agreement and do not form part of the agreement between Closefield Property Ltd and yourself or any third party. We do however in the spirit of cooperation undertake to support you throughout the process and this can sometimes mean that we will provide services at no costs after reservation of the property. It is at the discretion of the directors of Closefield Property Ltd whether ‘property-sourcing fees’ can be credited to another property should for any reason you fail to complete your purchase of a reserved property. Should you choose to pull out of a deal or are unable to obtain a mortgage; fees will not be refundable and no credits will be given.
