Listing a Space
If you are an Office Provider and would like to list Properties on our website, please contact us at email@example.com. You will be asked to provide all relevant details in relation to each Space to us, including photos of the Space (“Content”). You are responsible for the Content provided to us for the purposes of listing your Space on the website or promoting it via our social media channels.
By providing such Content to us and proposing a new listing, you warrant that: (a) you have the authority to: provide the Space and Content for listing on our website and our social media channels; act on behalf of the owner or lessor of the Space in advertising and promoting the Space; and to deal with enquiries from Clients we introduce to you; (b) the Space and the information provided by you in relation to the Space complies with all applicable laws and regulations and the leasing of the Space to any Client would not breach any agreement; (c) all applicable charges and fees which are relevant for the Space shall be disclosed to Knight Frank so that they can be clearly described in the listing; (d) where any of the Content you provide to us contain personal data, you have all the rights and authorisations necessary to provide that Content to us for use in accordance with these Terms and Conditions; and (e) you shall use all reasonable endeavours to promptly respond to any queries Knight Frank raises with you, and you shall treat such queries with such professional care and skill as you would direct enquiries. Office Providers may request that Knight Frank amends or deletes the listing at any time and must promptly provide Knight Frank with any updates or new information about the Space as it becomes known to the Office Provider.
You acknowledge that Knight Frank will review the Content you provide and may amend it, provided that Knight Frank shall not materially change the substance of the Content. Knight Frank reserves the right to reject any proposed listing or Content (in whole or part) if it considers that the Content or listing is objectionable or that the Content or the Office Provider is in breach of applicable law or these Terms and Conditions. Once the Content you provide is uploaded as a listing and is posted to the website, it will be publicly visible on this website and may also be uploaded to, and promoted via, our social media channels. Knight Frank reserves the right to amend, suspend or remove the listing for any Space where Knight Frank, in its sole discretion, considers that the Content or the Office Provider has breached the law or these Terms and Conditions, or where there is any dispute about the Office Provider’s authority to have made the Content or listing available to Knight Frank to upload to the website.
The Office Provider acknowledges that it will pay Knight Frank a commission on every new agreement or contract in respect of any Space (as renewed, extended (including to add a new Space) or amended) entered into by a Client who is referred by Knight Frank to, and accepted by, the Office Provider (“Agreement”). The rates and payment terms for such commission will be agreed between the Office Provider and Knight Frank.
The Service Provider will promptly notify Knight Frank about any changes in respect of any Agreement, and the parties will agree and amend payment of the applicable commission accordingly.
Invoicing and Payment
Knight Frank will invoice the Office Provider for the commission and payment will be due in accordance with Knight Frank’s payment terms. You acknowledge that your liability to pay commission to Knight Frank is independent of your receipt of payment due to you under any Agreement.
This section (along with any section which gives effect to it) will survive termination or expiry of these Terms and Conditions. You acknowledge and agree that deletion of your Spaces from the website and/or termination or expiry of these Terms and Conditions shall not terminate or void any obligation you have to pay a commission (or any other amounts) due in respect of any Agreement that is entered into pursuant to any effective introduction made by Knight Frank (even where the Agreement is signed by a Client after you terminate these Terms and Conditions).
