§ 2 – Brokerage agreement
A brokerage agreement is concluded when the recipient makes use of our offers, i.e. even if the recipient contacts us or the owner/landlord directly. With the receipt of the offer – by mail, e-mail, fax, phone, internet or in any other way – our general terms and conditions come into force.
§ 3 – Liability
Offers are always subject to change and non-binding. Information can be based on official statements, statements of the client or his representative, on observations of the market, impressions of visits and, if necessary, estimates. The information is not an expert opinion of a publicly appointed and sworn expert. The observance or consideration of valuation regulations, in particular the German Building Code, the Valuation Ordinance and the Valuation Guidelines or other rules and regulations are expressly not guaranteed. All information has been prepared with the greatest possible care and is based on information from sources that we consider reliable, but for whose accuracy, completeness and correctness we assume no liability, nor for direct or indirect damages arising from this. Opinions contained herein may represent our assessment at the time of preparation of an exposé and are subject to change without notice. Historical developments are no indication of future results. In particular, we are entitled, but not obliged, to verify the accuracy of the information on the living and financial circumstances of the contracting parties supplied. The opinions and recommendations expressed do not take into account individual client situations, objectives or needs. The recipients of offers must make their own independent decisions with regard to individual aspects.
§ 4 – Confidentiality notice
The offer is intended exclusively for the client or the recipient himself. All information – including any attachments – must be treated as strictly confidential. Attachments are to be returned at our request. The passing on of any information to third parties is not permitted and obliges the client to pay compensation in the amount of the full verification and agency commission to VON BRISKORN IMMOBILIEN- & WIRTSCHAFTSBERATUNG GMBH.
§ 5 – Prior knowledge
If the recipient of the offer is already aware of the opportunity to conclude a contract as proven by VON BRISKORN IMMOBILIEN- & WIRTSCHAFTSBERATUNG GMBH, he must inform VON BRISKORN IMMOBILIEN- & WIRTSCHAFTSBERATUNG GMBH immediately and provide proof of his knowledge and notification upon request. Otherwise, VON BRISKORN IMMOBILIEN- &WIRTSCHAFTSBERATUNG GMBH has full commission and compensation claims.
§ 6 – Causality
A transaction is always subject to commission if, despite prior knowledge of the property, the assistance of VON BRISKORN IMMOBILIEN- & WIRTSCHAFTSBERATUNG GMBH is used to conclude the transaction after receipt of the offer. We are also entitled to a commission if an economically similar or similar transaction is concluded. Causality of our brokerage activity is sufficient. It is not necessary for the conditions of the offer and the conclusion of the contract to correspond. The claim to commission remains in force if the contract that has come into being expires due to conditions that have been resolved. The same applies if the contract is terminated due to a reservation of withdrawal or is cancelled or not fulfilled for other reasons. If the contract is successfully contested or reversed, the party to the contract that set the reason for contestation or reversal is liable for damages in the amount of the commission claim.
§ 7 – Consumer information
In accordance with § 36 (2) cl. 1 VSBG (Consumer Dispute Settlement Act), we hereby inform you that VON BRISKORN IMMOBILIEN- & WIRTSCHAFTSBERATUNG GMBH is neither willing nor obliged to participate in dispute settlement proceedings. Any obligation to appoint an arbitration board is therefore not applicable. The European Commission provides a platform for Online Dispute Resolution (OS), which you can find here: http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr. The EU Commission’s OS platform is only a contact point for dispute resolution and does not itself undertake any dispute resolution. If the OS platform is used and we receive an offer for dispute resolution, we will reject this offer. If only the masculine form of a word is used in texts, this should only serve the purpose of better readability and comprehensibility and should not indicate any gender discrimination. All persons are addressed, regardless of their gender situation and/or gender affiliation or which gender affiliation is claimed by them.
§ 8 – Remuneration information
We are also entitled to act for the other part against payment. We are permitted to carry out the order in cooperation with other brokers, without additional costs for the client. If a contract is concluded as a result of our proof or mediation, a commission is payable to us in accordance with our fee rates pursuant to § 9. If information is contradictory regarding the remuneration, the information provided in the exposé or contract shall take precedence over that specified in § 9. The commission is irrevocably earned upon conclusion of the contract, is due and payable without any objections.
§ 9 – Fee rates
(a) purchase and sale or other acquisition agreement of real estate or rights equivalent to real estate:
3.57 % of the total purchase price including the statutory value added tax, payable by the seller and the buyer respectively.
In the case of the sales price on a pension basis, the purchase price is the cash price plus the capitalised pension interest (capital present value of the pension). For the creation and transfer of heritable building rights, the commission amounts to 3.57 % of the purchase price including the statutory value added tax. If no such commission has been agreed, it shall be replaced by either 25 times the annual ground rent or the capitalised net present value of the ground rent to be calculated, at our discretion. When calculating the capital present value, the effective interest rate customary in the market for mortgage loans with a fixed interest rate of 10 years at 100% disbursement is to be applied.
In the case of the mediation of a pre-sale right, 1.19 % of the market value of the property is payable by the entitled party upon conclusion of the contract, and a further 2.38 % of the purchase price when the pre-sale right is exercised, in each case including the statutory value-added tax.
(b) Letting of residential property:
2.38 monthly rents without additional costs including the statutory value added tax, payable by the client.
(c) renting and leasing of retail and commercial space:
For contract periods of up to 5 years: 2,00 monthly rents without additional costs plus statutory value added tax, payable by the tenant.
For longer contract periods (option rights apply as for contract periods): 4,00 monthly rents without additional costs plus statutory added tax, payable by the tenant.
If an option right is granted in addition to a rental or lease agreement, the total amount of the commissions from the rental agreement and option right may not exceed 4,00 monthly rents without additional costs plus statutory value added tax. If an option right is agreed, we receive 2,00 monthly rents from the tenant without additional costs plus statutory value-added tax.
(d) The fees for consultancy and other services shall be determined by separate agreement.
§ 10 – Jurisdiction/Text form
Place of performance and jurisdiction is Bonn. The law of the Federal Republic of Germany applies.
We do not accept other clauses and terms of condition, even if we do not object to them.
Deviating agreements and ancillary agreements must be confirmed in text form to be legally effective.
§ 11 – Professional liability insurance
VON BRISKORN IMMOBILIEN- & WIRTSCHAFTSBERATUNG GMBH maintains professional liability insurance for all employees with ERGO Versicherung AG, Victoriaplatz 2, 40477 Düsseldorf, www.ergo.de. The geographical scope of the insurance cover includes activities in the member states of the European Union.
Right of withdrawal
(a) Preliminary remark
If the brokerage contract was concluded exclusively via the Internet (so-called remote communication) without the physical presence of the contracting parties, the brokerage contract can be classified as a distance contract in accordance with § 312 b 1 cl. 1 BGB.
It is pointed out that the right of revocation only applies to distance selling contracts concluded between a consumer according to § 13 BGB and a tradesman according to § 14 BGB. If both parties are acting in the course of their commercial activities, no right of revocation shall be established for distance selling contracts pursuant to §§ 312 d, 355 BGB.
Unless the customer declares otherwise, we will act immediately upon an express request of a customer and therefore before the end of a fortnight’s revocation period.
(b) Right of withdrawal
You may revoke your brokerage agreement in writing (e.g. letter, fax, e-mail) within 14 days without stating reasons. The period begins upon receipt of this instruction in text form, but not before the conclusion of the contract and also not before the fulfilment of our information obligations according to Art. 246 § 2 in connection with § 1, 1 and 2 EGBGB. The timely dispatch of the revocation suffices to comply with the revocation period. The revocation is to be addressed to: VON BRISKORN IMMOBILIEN- & WIRTSCHAFTSBERATUNG GMBH, Zitelmannstraße 6, 53113 Bonn, Germany, Fax +49 228 92385-850, firstname.lastname@example.org.
(c) Consequences of withdrawal
In the event of an effective revocation, the services received by both parties are to be returned and any benefits derived are to be surrendered – see §§ 357 para. 1 p. 1, 346 BGB.
In the case of a brokerage service, which by its nature cannot be returned by the consumer, the consumer, as the party liable to return the goods, must pay compensation in accordance with § 346 2 No. 1 BGB.
Obligations to refund payments must be fulfilled within 30 days. For the customer, the period begins with the dispatch of his declaration of revocation, for us with its receipt.
The right of revocation expires prematurely if the contract is completely fulfilled by both parties at your express request before you have exercised your right of revocation.
