1.1 Interpretation


Headings in this agreement are for guidance only and they do not form part of the agreement for interpretation purposes.


This agreement will be interpreted solely in accordance with English law and is subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of English courts of law.


Reference to a particular gender includes other genders unless expressly stated otherwise and reference to the singular includes the plural and vice versa.


All parties acknowledge that before signing this agreement they have made sure that any important warranty, representation or condition made prior to the date of this agreement (including any prior existing agreement) have been expressly incorporated into this agreement and therefore they agree that any prior representations, warranties or agreements will no longer have effect once this agreement becomes effective.


1.2 Definitions


“Introduction Schedule” means a schedule confirming details of an introduction made to you by We in the blank form attached;


“sale”  means any transaction whereby a seller of a property agrees either to sell all its interest in the property or to grant a long lease (here meaning over 21 years) of the property or enters into an unconditional agreement to do so.


2. Sale Commission


2.1 If We introduces a prospective seller to you and the seller subsequently completes one or more sales of property to you (or, in the case of you being an investor club, to a member, owner or officer of the investor club) at any time within two years of the date of introduction, you will pay commission on the sale price of each property to We at the rate specified in the Introduction Schedule and, in the absence of any rate specified in an Introduction Schedule or of an Introduction Schedule at all, at the rate of 1.5% of the sale price of each relevant property up to 15% below-market-value.


2.2 These terms shall apply to all sale transactions made between a seller and you (or, in the case of you being an investor club, between a seller and a member, owner or officer of the investor club) during the two-year period from the initial introduction of the seller.

3.1.2 (where you are an investor or an investor club where no commission is charged for any reason) within 7 days of completion of the relevant transaction.


3.2 Where you are an investor club that makes a commission charge to an investor for the introduction of a seller, you agree to use all reasonable efforts to procure payment by the relevant investor including, if payment has not been secured within 90 days of the due date, taking legal proceedings against the relevant investor unless, in the opinion of reasonably experienced counsel, you have little or no reasonable prospect of recovery of the monies or the relevant investor has been adjudicated bankrupt or, in the case of a body corporate, is in liquidation.


3.3 Where you are an investor club that makes a non-refundable charge or deposit for introducing sellers to investors you agree to apply all such monies (or such part of it as will cover the full amount due to We where such payment exceeds the relevant commission) towards the commission due to We on the due date irrespective of whether the relevant investor has paid the balance due to you by that date.


3.4 Any overdue monies shall bear interest at the rate of 8% above the prevailing base rate of National Westminster Bank PLC.

4.5 Each party agrees to keep all documents and materials containing Confidential Information in a safe and secure place and not to copy or allow to be copied any such documents or materials and to return on request by the disclosing party all such documents and materials.

4.6 The delivery of documents and materials containing Confidential Information shall not amount to a licence in favour of the recipient to use copy or in any other way deal with the Confidential Information or any related documents and materials.

4.7 This Agreement is binding upon the parties and their associated companies and associates (as defined by the Income and Corporation Taxes Act 1988), and the successors and assignees of the parties and their associated companies and associates and you agree to ensure that where you are an investor club you will not disclose to any member any Confidential Information including but not limited to the details of any proposed seller until the member has entered into a legally binding agreement to observe the terms of this clause 4 and in particular not to disclose the name of any proposed seller to a third party.
