Terms

Terms and Conditions of Use:

Parkmatic Publications Limited (T/A LandlordZONE) provides general information only through all its publications including LandlordZONE®, printed material, Newsletters and all related websites.

These publications do not cover every case or issue, nor do they give an authoritative interpretation of the law; only a court can do that. Never rely totally on our standard answers and general content. Before taking action or not, always do your own specific research and seek appropriate professional advice with the full facts of the case and all documents to hand.

Sample forms, letters and agreements provided as free downloads by Parkmatic Publications Limited are for use at your own risk. If you are in any doubt about their suitability you should seek expert advice before using them.

Parkmatic Publications Limited makes no warranties or representations as to the suitability or fitness for purpose of any material provided.

All information provided applies primarily to England and Wales. In the rest of the UK including Scotland and Northern Ireland and in all other jurisdictions laws and regulations are often different.

All information provided including specifications, details and prices is subject to change without notice.

We make every effort to ensure that information published is accurate and up-to-date but we cannot guarantee this. Laws and regulations change frequently, so it is likely that some information provided on such a large website could be out of date.

To the extent permitted by applicable laws we disclaim all warranties express or implied and all responsibility for inaccuracies, errors and omissions, information which is out of date, inadvertent illegality of content, or virus contamination on our web sites and through data transmission.

We will not under any circumstances be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental or specific loss or damage caused through the use of this site by: breach of contract, negligence, defamation, infringement of copyright or intellectual property rights.

This is the case whether or not we have been notified of such loss, unless it is specifically covered in any operative contractual terms and conditions.

Our insurance articles are intended to provide general insurance information and guidance only. We do not give advice or recommendations on specific circumstances or products. Purchasers from our insurance associates should ensure that their properties are insured for their full replacement values, including the contents, and that they are covered for full landlord risks.

Our financial, taxation and investment articles are intended to provide general financial information only. We do not give advice or recommendations on specific circumstances or products. We urge you to consult an Independent Financial Adviser (IFA) before making any important decisions about your finances. Any statement regarding financial services products and tax liability is based on legislation at the time the article is published.

The value of any tax benefits or reliefs referred to in our articles will depend upon your own individual circumstances and these amounts change frequently. You should always verify these values with original sources and/or consult a qualified accountant.

When investment performance is referred to you should always remember that past performance is no guarantee of future returns – the value of investments can fall as well as rise.

Where mortgages or secured loans are explained you should bear in mind that your property is at risk if you do not keep up repayments on a mortgage or other loans secured on it. All mortgages are subject to underwriting status and are not available to people under the age of 18.
