How we work
Popertee is an online platform that allows prospective tenants who register for and utilise the Site and Services (“Tenants”) to access, search, profile and receive recommendations on commercial spaces which best match a Tenant’s target audience criteria, compare and then through the Site connect with the widest range of available commercial spaces (“Spaces”) in UK and Ireland for the purposes of securing a short-term commercial rental (“Letting”). The Spaces displayed on our Site are not owned nor operated by Popertee and we act as an intermediary only. We may facilitate the formation and entering into a legally binding agreement between a Tenant and an owner, landlord and/or an agent thereof (“Landlord”) , in relation to a Space but Popertee will not be a party to any license, lease or similar agreement which may be entered into between a Tenant and a Landlord (“Letting Agreement”) in relation to any Space accessed on the Site or otherwise offered to a Tenant by or through the Services. Popertee disclaims all liability arising from or related to any such transactions to the fullest extent permitted by law. Popertee makes no warranty as to any particular result or outcome being achieved or obtained, or being achievable or obtainable, from use of the Site and/or the Services. Popertee does not at any time provide, or purport to provide, any advice, or advisory services, to Landlords, Tenants or any other party, in particular with respect to the suitability of a Space for a Tenant’s requirements or the commercial, financial, legal or any other consequences of any Letting Agreement.
Visitors to the Site may access certain areas of the Site without registration but visitors who want full access to the Site and the Services will be required to complete an account registration and following which registration an account will be created for you with a unique username and login password (“Account”) (“Users” or” you”). You must always keep your password confidential and must use it only to access and use your Account and not for any other purpose. You are the only authorised user of your Account and, accordingly, you must not disclose your password to anyone else. You should contact us immediately upon discovering any unauthorised use of your Account or error in the operation of your password. Any breach of these Terms and/or any use of your Account by anyone to whom you disclose your password will be treated as if the breach or use had been carried out by you and will not relieve you of your obligations to us. We reserve the right to require you to alter or replace your password(s) at any time at our sole discretion. You must be at least 18 years old to register as a User and each User will be responsible for all actions taken by or through their respective Account. We reserve the right to make due diligence enquiries in respect of any User, Account or attempted registration of an Account. When you create an Account on behalf of another person, company, partnership or other entity, you warrant and represent that you have the authority to bind that person, organisation or entity to these Terms and as such, any reference to a User or “you” and any warranties, representations, statements, acts or omissions made by you will be deemed to apply equally to such represented person(s) who shall be and shall remain responsible and liable for the same under these Terms.
By accepting the Terms you agree that we may process and store any content or details that you submit on the Site or otherwise to us.
Accessing the Site
Access to the Site and Services is permitted on a temporary basis unless otherwise agreed between Popertee and a User, and we reserve the right to withdraw or amend the Services without notice. We will not be liable if for any reason the Site is unavailable at any time or for any period. From time to time, we may restrict access to Users to some parts of the Site. We have the right to disable any Account at any time, if in our opinion a User has failed to comply with any of the provisions of the Terms.
We provide details on Spaces for information only. We do not verify nor provide any assurance as to the quality or accuracy of the information on the Site. Tenants are responsible for making their own enquiries on any Space and should consider instructing a surveyor and getting legal advice before entering into any Letting Agreement.
Popertee provides the Services and maintains the Site on an ‘as is’ basis and are liable only to provide our services with reasonable skill and care. Third-party websites and/or online services to which you may be required to register in order to complete a Letting or otherwise have not been verified or reviewed by Popertee and all use and access of such third-party sites is made at your own risk. Please note that Popertee assumes no responsibility for a Landlord or Space owner’s compliance with any applicable laws, rules and regulations.
Using the Services
Having created an Account a User will be able to fully access the Site to search for potentially suitable Spaces based on range of chosen search criteria selected by the User including gender, unique visitors/footfall, age and type of space.
Utilising our proprietary search and ranking algorithm and multiple proprietary and other data sources, Popertee identifies, screens, ranks and presents back to the User those Spaces which best match the User’s selected criteria (the “Recommended Spaces”). The specific search criteria applied may result in a small or larger number of Recommended Spaces being provided to the User. Through the Site insights on the Recommended Spaces are available to Users. More detailed location insights and analytics on Recommended Spaces can be requested by a User through the Site and will be provided to a User by Popertee without charge (“Shortlisted Spaces”). If a User is interested to consider a Letting of a Recommended Space or a Shortlisted Space the User can send an enquiry through the Site using the prescribed enquiry form or otherwise to Popertee as may be agreed (a “Space Enquiry”). On receipt of a Space Enquiry, Popertee may seek further details, clarifications or otherwise from the User and following which will contact the relevant Landlord in relation to the Space Enquiry. If the Landlord is interested in the Space Enquiry then Popertee will introduce the User to the relevant Landlord to directly discuss and negotiate a Letting Agreement or, if requested by the User and agreed by Popertee, assist the User through to the completion of a Letting Agreement (a “Managed Letting”). By submitting a Space Enquiry you acknowledge and agree that Popertee may, at our sole discretion, undertake additional efforts to help you find a suitable space as part of our managed service. A representative of Popertee may contact you for more information about your event or campaign and may contact Landlords and/or space owners in relation to Spaces not available on the Site,
Popertee makes no warranty as to any particular result being achieved or obtained, or being achievable or obtainable by a User, from use of the Site and the introduction of any User to Landlord.
You may end your agreement with us at any time for any reason by deactivating your Account(s) and discontinuing your use of the Site and the Services. You do not need to specifically inform us when you stop using the Services.
Users acknowledge that the Site and Services operate to connect Tenants with Landlords. A User agrees to pay Popertee a service fee where a User uses the Site and/or the Services and subsequently enters into a Letting Agreement in relation to a Shortlisted Space and/or a Space Enquiry. The service fee shall be calculated as 5% of the total amount payable by the Tenant/User to the Landlord under the Letting Agreement (the “Service Fee”) plus VAT, if applicable and in the event of a Managed Letting a service fee of 7.5% will apply. The Service Fee will be due and payable on the signing of a Letting Agreement unless the Tenant/User can demonstrate by reference to written and/or electronic communications to the reasonable satisfaction of Popertee that it had earlier been in contact with the relevant Landlord specifically regarding the Shortlisted Space and/or the space subject of a Space Enquiry other than through the Site or Popertee.
Users may elect to have Popertee undertake a concierge search and booking process for a Space and in such cases a Service Fee of 10% will apply and all other payment terms shall remain the same. A Service Fee of 10% will also apply for all Letting Agreements in relations to Spaces outside of UK.
In the event of a disputed introduction by Popertee to a User in relation to a Shortlisted Space and/or a Space Enquiry the User must provide to Popertee all related information and documentation in support of its dispute. Popertee agrees to review this information, together with its own documented evidence, in good faith, and determine whether the introduction to the User is valid or not. Popertee’s determination on the matter shall be final and binding on the User/Tenant.
The Service Fee shall be payable on signing of the Letting Agreement. All fees are non-refundable once paid. A Tenant may, at its election, pay the Service Fee as to 50% on signing of the Letting Agreement and the balance of 50% monthly in advance spread over the term as set out in the Letting Agreement but in this case the Service Fee shall be calculated at a fixed percentage of 15% of the of the total amount payable by the Tenant/User to the Landlord under the Letting Agreement Space Fee.
If the Tenant extends the term of the Letting Agreement, enters into a new Letting Agreement or license with the same Landlord in relation to the space the subject of the Letting Agreement or a new space, the Tenant/User shall be liable to Popertee for an additional Service Fee in relation to the new Letting Agreement to be calculated on the same basis as set out above.
Popertee reserves the right to receive a fee or other payment from a Landlord, other person or entity in relation to a Letting Agreement.
An invoice in respect of the Service Fee will be issued by Popertee when the User/Tenant signs a Letting Agreement. Subsequent invoices will be raised in advance as appropriate depending on the Service Fee alternative (as set out above) selected by the Tenant. The Tenant agrees to pay all invoices within seven (7) calendar days of the date of the invoice.
If the Tenant fails to make any payment due to Popertee by the due date for payment, then the Tenant shall pay interest on the overdue amount at the rate of 4% per cent per annum above Barclays Bank plc's base rate from time to time. Such interest shall accrue daily from the due date(s) until actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. The Tenant shall pay the interest together with the overdue amount. In the event of a failure to pay an invoiced amount Popertee reserves the right to suspend or terminate the Tenant’s access to the Site and the Service and charges will continue to be incurred until the Account of the Tenant is closed.
The Tenant shall pay all amounts due in full without any set-off, counterclaim, deduction or withholding (except for any deduction or withholding required by law). Popertee may at any time, without limiting its other rights or remedies, set off any amount owing to it by the Tenant against any amount payable by Popertee to the Tenant.
