General Terms and Conditions (AGB) Haus Kentrop GmbH
Our offers are based on the information provided to us; this information is provided to the best of our knowledge and belief. They are subject to change and non-binding. Errors, prior sale or prior rental are reserved.
2 Passing on of information and documents
Our offers and communications are intended only for the customer, are to be treated confidentially by the customer and may not be made accessible to third parties. If the customer passes these on to third parties and if the third party concludes a main contract on the basis of this, which would be subject to commission according to these conditions, the customer undertakes to pay the commission on the basis of these conditions. Any further claim for damages due to unauthorised disclosure of information remains unaffected.
3 Intermediary Brokers and Joint Businesses
We are entitled to commission further persons and to transfer a part of the commission to them. Upon request, we will disclose whether, to whom and in what amount such payments are or were made.
4 Origin of the commission claim
Our claim for commission arises as soon as a main contract concerning the property or customer named by us has been concluded on the basis of our proof or our mediation. In this case, contributory causation of our activity is sufficient. If the main contract is concluded under conditions other than those originally offered or if it is concluded via another property of the contractual partner named by us, this does not affect our claim to commission, provided that the transaction that has come about is economically identical to the transaction offered by us or deviates only insignificantly from the transaction offered in terms of its economic success. The occurrence of a resolutory condition agreed in the main contract shall not affect our claim for commission. The same shall apply if the main contract expires through the exercise of a contractual right of withdrawal, provided that this right is exercised for reasons for which one party is responsible or for reasons which lie within its area of responsibility. The claim for commission remains unaffected in the event of subsequent invalidity of the main contract for reasons that are not within the broker's area of responsibility. The claim to commission arises in particular in the case of purchase instead of rent, acquisition of business shares instead of property and vice versa, heritable building right instead of purchase as well as exchange instead of purchase or rent.
5 Due date of the commission claim
Our commission claim is due upon conclusion of the main contract. The commission is payable within 10 days after invoicing without any deduction. If the main contract is concluded without our participation, the customer is obliged to inform us immediately about the essential content of the main contract. Furthermore, the customer is obliged to provide us with a simple copy of the main contract.
