General Terms and Conditions
a) If you have received property details from us in respect of a specific property or commercial space, we offer to enter into a real estate agency agreement with you on the following terms.
b) For identifying the opportunity to enter into a purchase agreement a commission shall be due and payable upon conclusion of the main agreement. Upon request, you will provide us with copies of the pages of the signed main agreement, which are relevant for the calculation of the commission. If you have already been aware of a given opportunity to conclude a contract provided by us, you shall notify us immediately and, upon request, furnish proof thereof. Notwithstanding any prior knowledge of the potential contractual partner, we are entitled to the commission if we contribute causally to the conclusion of the Main Agreement.
c) A commission shall also be due and payable even if the Main Agreement is concluded by a third party affiliated to you, providing that you passed our brokerage services to that third party.
d) The entitlement to commission shall also arise if the contract is concluded at conditions that deviate from our offer or if contractual amendments and supplements will be concluded, if and to the extent of which they are connected in time and economic terms. The entitlement to commission shall also arise in case of conclusion of a financially equivalent agreement, e.g., if a sales contract instead of a lease or a hereditary building right contract instead of a sales contract is concluded in connection with the object and vice versa.
e) The entitlement to commission shall continue even if the concluded contract has expired due to resolutory conditions. The same shall apply if the contract will be resolved due to a reservation of the right to terminate the contract on the part of the Client or if it will be rescinded and/or not performed due to any other reasons based upon the latter.
