Terms, conditions and warranties

Properties for sale and rental

The ChangeHome.com website is a classifieds portal connecting property Vendors and their agents with people interested in renting or buying property.

We strongly recommend that users contacting Vendors or their agents through this website regarding the rental or purchase of advertised properties establish to their own satisfaction the Vendor or agent’s legal right to rent or sell the property in question. This may include the sighting of personal or company identification, a copy of the title of deed over the property in question or legal power of attorney to market and sell the property.

Since users of this website may be intending to purchase or rent property in another country or region, we strongly recommend that you retain the services of a local licensed real estate agent to assist you in your research, inspection and commercial contracting of the property in question.

It is the sole responsibility of the Vendor to be legally entitled to sell or rent the property advertised, and the sole responsibility of the User to ascertain the legal entitlement of a Vendor before commencing any commercial negotiations or entering into any contract.

BY PUBLISHING PROPERTIES FOR RENTAL OR SALE ON THIS WEBSITE, CHANGEHOME DOES NOT REPRESENT OR WARRANT THAT SUCH PROPERTIES ARE STILL AVAILABLE FOR RENTAL OR SALE, AND IS NOT LIABLE FOR DAMAGES OR LOSSES THAT MAY RESULT FROM CONTACTING THE VENDOR OR AGENT OF SUCH PROPERTIES.

Use of ChangeHome.com website

The ChangeHome.com website is provided solely to assist people to search for and view properties available for rental or sale, and to make legitimate enquiries to Vendors, and for no other purposes. You warrant that you are at least 18 years of age and possess the legal authority to enter into this agreement and to use this website in accordance with all terms and conditions herein. You agree to be financially responsible for all of your use of this website (as well as for use of your account by others, including, without limitation, minors living with you). You agree to supervise all usage of this website by minors under your name or account. You also warrant that all information supplied by you or members of your household in using this website is true and accurate. Without limitation, any speculative, false, or fraudulent enquiries to Vendors is prohibited.  You agree that the contact vendor facility on this website shall be used only to make legitimate enquiries for you or for another person for whom you are legally authorized to act. You understand that overuse or abuse of the contact vendor facilities of this website may result in you being denied access to such facilities.

Separate terms and conditions apply to Vendors and their agents who wish to create advertisements for their properties on this website.

Property description, prices and rates

The rental rates, sales prices, property descriptions, photographs and other information about a Property as described in a property advertisement have been provided by the Vendor when they created their property advertisement.

While ChangeHome.com views many property advertisements to ensure that they meet our guidelines about acceptable content, we do not check or validate all of the information published by each Vendor and therefore cannot be held liable for any incorrect information that is published on its site. If you have a complaint against a Vendor relating to incorrect information, you should advise ChangeHome.com through the Contact Us page.

Contact Vendor form

We cannot be held responsible in the event that a Vendor does not respond to your enquiry, neither in the event that the price or rates described on the property advertisement differ from actuality as confirmed by the Vendor.
