Rent360 reserves the right, at its sole discretion, as to which local areas or regions You may service in relation to the Rent360 matching service.
2.5 The Owner can request an interview (at the Owner’s discretion) with one (1) or all Property Managers displayed in respect of providing the Management Services. There is no obligation for the Owner to request an interview with any Property Manager.
2.6 You agree that the selection process in respect of Property Managers presented to the Owner are based on the opinion of Rent360 only and, accordingly, Rent360 has no responsibility, liability nor obligation in respect of the Owner’s selection of a Property Manager for the Management Services.

2.8 You are free to accept or decline interview requests at your discretion, however, You will accept or decline an interview request within two (2) business days and to adhere to the schedule You establish with an Owner. Non-response within two (2) business days of receiving the interview request from Rent360 will be deemed as the Property Manager declining the interview request.
2.9 Once You have accepted an interview request from an Owner, You and an Owner can communicate privately using the Rent360 private online messaging service. Each time a User receives a message from the Rent360 messaging service, a notification may be sent to the User via their currently active communication channel. Users are permitted to communicate with each other by phone, VoIP and in person but only after You accept an interview request from an Owner. There is no obligation for the Owner to appoint You for his/her Management Services.
2.10 You acknowledge and agree that by accepting an interview request from an Owner which culminates in the signing of a Management Contract (the term “Management Contract” is defined in Clause 2.14 below), You are legally obligated to pay Rent360 a Referral Services Fee (the term “Referral Services Fee” is defined in Clause 3.3 below).

2.15 Using the functionality on the Platform, the Owner can generate, review, edit and electronically sign the Management Contract. An electronic notification will be sent to You by us, alerting You that the Owner has electronically signed the Management Contract and now requires your electronic signature. Once You electronically sign the Management Contract You will be sent an automatic notification. You are expected to electronically sign the Management Contract on the Platform within two (2) business days and to adhere to the schedule You establish with an Owner.
2.16 By electronically signing the Management Contract, You and the Owner will be deemed to have entered into a separate, legally binding agreement under which the Owner agrees to purchase, and You agree to provide the Owner with the Management Services under the terms and conditions stated in the Management Contract.

2.18 You are free to use the functionality of the Platform to enter into a Management Contract with an Owner who is your existing client, is referred to You directly by a third party (that is not Rent360) or is solicited directly by You without any involvement or assistance from Rent360 whatsoever on the condition that You use Rent360 services to list and/or advertise the Owner’s property on third party online property listing sites and/or You use a Rent360 property management plan to provide the Management Services to an Owner.
2.19 The Platform provides Property Manager public profiles (microsites) which enables Users to contact and/or post a request for Management Services. When this occurs, the Property Manager will be automatically notified of the User enquiry by us. However, that Property Manager will need to follow the standard process (at that time) to be appointed the Rent360 Property Manager for the User.
2.20 Rent360 Provider products and services are offered to the Owner pursuant to the terms and conditions offered by the third party. You may procure and support the provision of Provider products and services for the Owner, with the agreement of the Owner, until such time the Owner revokes that authority.

3.8 Rent360 will pay a Promotional Management Services Fee to You when you enter into a Management Contract with an Owner on the Platform who is made available by Rent360 and where Rent360 has provided a promotional offer to that Owner (“Promotional Management Services Fees”) resulting in a discount on the Management Service Fees for a specified period. The Promotional Management Service Fee will be automatically converted into Rent360 credit and credited to your Rent360 account. You will not deduct the Management Services Fees related to the promotional offer from the Owner’s ledger for the specified period.
3.9 Rent360 may from time to time change the fees set out in the Services Fee Schedule, Provider Fee Schedule and the Commissions Fee Schedule and the terms applying to their payment by providing You at least thirty (30) days’ notice.
