Terms & Conditions of business

The Thomas Partnership (TTP) provides advice solely in relation to Outdoor media. All advice, information and comment is intended for the client, and the client only. No reliance should be made on any comment if relating to any other issues nor by any third party for any purpose whatsoever.

Instructions are accepted in good faith on the assumption that the instructing party has the legal right and authority to appoint (TTP) in the capacity stated.

Where instructions are issued by an Agent to TTP on behalf of a client, this must be disclosed prior to appointment and instructions are accepted on the assumption that such appointment has been disclosed and agreed with the client and is binding upon the client. Instructions issued by one company will be binding on all subsidiary companies or related companies. Instructions issued by a Partner will be binding upon the Partnership. Where instructions are held in relation to any property which is sold or let during the term of appointment of TTP, other than for the purposes of Outdoor media, fees will remain payable by the Client to TTP even where a fee earning event occurs after the sale or letting, as if the Client still owned the property. Instructions are accepted solely on the basis of a Sole Letting Agency or Sole Selling Agency. This means that once appointed, fees will be due even where negotiations are undertaken directly between the Client and tenant or purchaser.

TTP does not warrant the ability of any tenant or purchaser to perform any obligation of a lease, contract or obligation of any type nor is any warranty given that the use of any site is lawful and no liability will accrue to TTP where any prosecution or enforcement action of any type is taken against the Client or the Tenant in relation thereto.

The initial term of appointment of TTP will be 18 months and thereafter determinable upon one months notice. Termination will not release the Client from the liability to pay any fees due as a result of work undertaken prior to termination. Any variation to the above Terms and Condition of Appointment & Fee Schedule must be made in writing and agreed by both TTP and the instructing Client or Agent.
