On receipt of full payment (or within 7 days from the date shown on our invoice, if applicable), we assign to the person that paid for the photos (i.e. the real estate agency or a particular agent or team within that agency, as the case may be) non-exclusive, limited rights to do as they wish with the photos, such as storing, editing, printing, displaying and transmitting the photos, but ONLY in relation to marketing or promotion of the property being sold or leased.
Photos may not be sold, leased or otherwise transferred to any other person (including to owners or other agencies), unless where expressly agreed to by us in writing. Location photographs taken or provided in relation to a property may only be used in relation to that property and not in relation to any other property.
Use of photos outside of these guidelines will constitute a breach of our copyright.
We reserve the right to use the photos for promotional purposes and to transfer copyright or to re-license the images - this includes to other agencies. The right to use photos in relation to a particular property expires when the listing ends, or when the property is sold or leased, is taken off the market or is listed through another agency.
