1. Scope of RealtyProx Services
1.1 The RealtyProx Platform is an online marketplace that enables registered users ("Members") and certain third parties who offer services (Members and third parties who offer services include "Listing Parties" who offer Properties for rent or lease, and "Professionals" who offer their skills and services for hire.) to publish such services on the RealtyProx Platform ("Listings") and to communicate and transact directly with Members that are seeking to rent or lease Properties (Members renting or leasing properties are "Tenants") or use the Services of a listed Professional.
1.2 As the provider of the RealtyProx Platform, RealtyProx does not own, create, sell, resell, provide, control, manage, offer, deliver, or supply any Property Listings or Professional Services, nor is RealtyProx an organiser or retailer of Properties or Professional Services. Listing Parties alone are responsible for their Listings. When Members make or accept a transaction on the Platform, they are entering into a contract directly with each other. RealtyProx is not and does not become a party to or other participant in any contractual relationship between Members, nor is RealtyProx a real estate broker or insurer. RealtyProx is not acting as an agent in any capacity for any Member, except as specified in the Payments Terms.
1.3 While we may help facilitate the resolution of disputes, RealtyProx has no control over and does not guarantee (i) the existence, quality, safety, suitability, or legality of any Listings, (ii) the truth or accuracy of any Listing descriptions, Ratings, Reviews, or other Member Content (as defined below), or (iii) the performance or conduct of any Member or third party. RealtyProx does not endorse any Member or Listings. Any references to a Member being "verified" or "certified" (or similar language) only indicate that the Member has completed a relevant verification or identification process and nothing else. Any such description is not an endorsement, certification or guarantee by RealtyProx about any Member, including of the Member's identity or background or whether the Member is trustworthy, safe or suitable. You should always exercise due diligence and care when deciding whether to rent a Property, hire a Professional, accept a rental request from a Tenant, or communicate and interact with other Members, whether online or in person. Verified Images (as defined below) are intended only to indicate a photographic representation of a Listing at the time the photograph was taken, and are therefore not an endorsement by RealtyProx of any Listing Party(ies) or Listing(s).
1.4 If you choose to use the RealtyProx Platform as a Listing Party (as defined below), your relationship with RealtyProx is limited to being an independent, third-party contractor, and not an employee, agent, joint venturer or partner of RealtyProx for any reason, and you act exclusively on your own behalf and for your own benefit, and not on behalf, or for the benefit, of RealtyProx. RealtyProx does not, and shall not be deemed to, direct or control you generally or in your performance under these Terms specifically, including in connection with your provision of the obligations under the Listings. You acknowledge and agree that you have complete discretion whether to make an offer via your Listings or otherwise engage in other business or employment activities.
1.5 To promote the RealtyProx Platform and to increase the exposure of Listings to potential Tenants or users of Professional Services, Listings and other Member Content may be displayed on other websites, in applications, within emails, and in online and offline advertisements. To assist Members who speak different languages, Listings and other Member Content may be translated, in whole or in part, into other languages. RealtyProx cannot guarantee the accuracy or quality of such translations and Members are responsible for reviewing and verifying the accuracy of such translations. The RealtyProx Platform may contain translations powered by Google. Google disclaims all warranties related to the translations, express or implied, including any warranties of accuracy, reliability, and any implied warranties for merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement.
1.6 The RealtyProx Platform may contain links to third-party websites or resources ("Third-Party Services"). Such Third-Party Services may be subject to different terms and conditions and privacy practices. RealtyProx is not responsible or liable for the availability or accuracy of such Third-Party Services, or the content, products, or services available from such Third-Party Services. Links to such Third-Party Services are not an endorsement by RealtyProx of such Third-Party Services.
1.7 Due to the nature of the Internet, RealtyProx cannot guarantee the continuous and uninterrupted availability and accessibility of the RealtyProx Platform. RealtyProx may restrict the availability of the RealtyProx Platform or certain areas or features thereof, if this is necessary in view of capacity limits, the security or integrity of our servers, or to carry out maintenance measures that ensure the proper or improved functioning of the RealtyProx Platform. RealtyProx may improve, enhance and modify the RealtyProx Platform and introduce new RealtyProx Services from time to time.

If you agree to pay the Listing Party, or RealtyProx determines in its sole discretion that you are responsible for the Damage Claim, RealtyProx Payments will collect any such sums from you and/or against the Security Deposit (if applicable) required to cover the Damage Claim pursuant to the Payments Terms. RealtyProx also reserves the right to otherwise collect payment from you and pursue any remedies available to RealtyProx in this regard in situations in which you are responsible for a Damage Claim.
11.3 Members agree to cooperate with and assist RealtyProx in good faith, and to provide RealtyProx with such information and take such actions as may be reasonably requested by RealtyProx, in connection with any Damage Claims or other complaints or claims made by Members relating to their transactions and interactions on the RealtyProx Platform. A Member shall, upon RealtyProx's reasonable request and at no cost to the Member, participate in mediation or a similar resolution process with another Member, which process will be conducted by RealtyProx or a third party selected by RealtyProx or its insurer, with respect to losses for which a Member is requesting payment from RealtyProx (including but not limited to payments under the Security Deposit Management Service).
12. Rounding off
RealtyProx generally supports payment amounts that are payable from or to Members to the smallest unit supported by a given currency (i.e., Kobo, U.S. cents, Euro cents or other supported currencies). Where RealtyProx's third-party payment services provider does not support payments in the smaller unit supported by a given currency, RealtyProx may, in its sole discretion, round up or round down amounts that are payable from or to Members to the nearest whole functional base unit in which the currency is denominated (i.e. to the nearest Naira, dollar, Euro or other supported currency); for example, RealtyProx may round up an amount of N5250.52 to N5251.00, and round down an amount of N5250.49 toN5250.00.
13.1 As a Listing Party you are solely responsible for determining your obligations to report, collect, remit or include in your Rental Charges any applicable VAT or other indirect withholding taxes, stamp duties, Applicable Tax, and/or income taxes ("Taxes").
13.2 Tax regulations may require us to collect appropriate Tax information from Members, or to withhold Taxes from payouts to Members, or both. If a Member fails to provide us with documentation that we determine to be sufficient to alleviate our obligation (if any) to withhold Taxes from payouts to you, we reserve the right to freeze all payouts, withhold such amounts as required by law, or to do both, until resolution.
13.3 You understand that any appropriate governmental agency, department and/or authority ("Tax Authority") where your Property or Service operation is located may require Taxes to be collected from Members on Rental Charges, and to be remitted to the respective Tax Authority. The laws in jurisdictions may vary, but these Taxes may be required to be collected and remitted as a percentage of the Rental Charges set by Listing Parties, or other variations, and are sometimes dependent on the nature of service operation or duration of your rent/lease agreement ("Applicable Taxes").
13.4 In certain jurisdictions, RealtyProx may decide in its sole discretion to facilitate collection and remittance of Applicable Taxes from or on behalf of Members, in accordance these Terms ("Collection and Remittance") if such jurisdiction asserts RealtyProx or Members have an Applicable Tax collection and remittance obligation. In any jurisdiction in which we decide to facilitate direct Collection and Remittance, you hereby instruct and authorize RealtyProx (via RealtyProx Payments) to collect Applicable Taxes at the time transactions/payments are processed, and to remit such Applicable Taxes to the Tax Authority. The amount of Applicable Taxes, if any, collected and remitted by RealtyProx will be visible to and separately stated to Members on their respective transaction documents. Where RealtyProx is facilitating Collection and Remittance, Members are not permitted to separately collect any Applicable Taxes already collected by RealtyProx relating to their transactions in that jurisdiction.
13.5 You agree that we may seek additional amounts from you in the event that the Taxes collected and/or remitted are insufficient to fully discharge your obligations to the Tax Authority, and agree that your sole remedy for Applicable Taxes collected is a refund of Applicable Taxes collected by RealtyProx from the applicable Tax Authority in accordance with applicable procedures set by that Tax Authority.
13.6 RealtyProx reserves the right, with prior notice to Members, to cease the Collection and Remittance in any jurisdiction for any reason at which point Members are once again solely responsible and liable for the collection and/or remittance of any and all Applicable Taxes that may apply to transactions in that jurisdiction.

15.7 The clauses of these Terms that reasonably should survive termination of the Agreement will remain in effect after termination of the agreement.
If you choose to use the RealtyProx Platform or Collective Content, you do so voluntarily and at your sole risk. The RealtyProx Platform and Collective Content is provided "as is", without warranty of any kind, either express or implied.
You agree that you have had whatever opportunity you deem necessary to investigate the RealtyProx Services, laws, rules, or regulations that may be applicable to the Listings (including Professional Services) you are renting/hiring and that you are not relying upon any statement of law or fact made by RealtyProx relating to a Listing.
If we choose to conduct identity verification or background checks on any Member, to the extent permitted by applicable law, we disclaim warranties of any kind, either express or implied, that such checks will identify prior misconduct by a Member or guarantee that a Member will not engage in misconduct in the future.
The foregoing disclaimers apply to the maximum extent permitted by law. You may have other statutory rights. However, the duration of statutorily required warranties, if any, shall be limited to the maximum extent permitted by law.
17.1 Under no circumstances will you be entitled to recover from RealtyProx any incidental, consequential, indirect, punitive or special damages (including damages for loss of business, loss of profits or loss of use), whether based on contract, tort (including negligence), or otherwise arising from or relating to the use of the RealtyProx Platform and associated services, or Collective Contents; harm or damage to your person or property as a result of using the Platform; your or anyone else's conduct or acts in connection with the use of the Platform; or any actual or attempted communication or transaction between users, in each case, even if RealtyProx has been informed or should have known of the possibility of such damages.

The provisions of this clause 17.1 were and are an express part of the bargain between you and RealtyProx and were a controlling factor in the setting of any fees payable to RealtyProx.
