REAL ESTATE TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Preparing the property for photography:
It is the duty of the agent and/or seller to properly prepare the home for photographs. Please clean and de-clutter the property prior to the appointment. All services such as painting, power washing, cleaning, carpet steaming, repairs, landscaping, lawn care, staging, appliance delivery, etc. should be done prior to the appointment. Please remove trash bins, vehicles, and signs from exterior of the home. Vehicles should be pulled in the garage or parked in the street a couple houses down, if possible.
Salt Lake Real Estate Photography shall not be responsible for photographs not taken as a result of the client's failure to provide reasonable assistance or cooperation.
Due to the fast turn around time, short booking notices, and the "quick transaction" nature of real estate photography, invoices are expected to be paid within 48 hours of the final product being delivered. Any media being used before the invoice is paid is considered unauthorized use, theft of intellectual property, and will be addressed as such.
In an effort to ensure Salt Lake Real Estate Photography is on time for all scheduled appointments, any delays experienced due to the property not being prepared on time, will be rescheduled and assessed a $50 fuel fee.
Appointments must be cancelled within 24 hours of the appointment to avoid a cancellation fee of $50.
This fee will not be assessed if an appointment is cancelled due to inclement weather.
Doorstep Cancellation Policy:
If an associate of Salt Lake Real Estate Photography is unable to obtain access to a property at the time of the appointment due to the absence or lack of cooperation of a seller/host/agent/tenant/etc, a 100% fee will be assessed.
SHOOTING TIME / ADDITIONS: the photo shoot schedule and selected methodology are designed to accomplish the goals and wishes of the client in a manner enjoyed by all parties. Clients and Salt Lake Real Estate Photography agree that cheerful cooperation and punctuality are therefore essential to that purpose. Shooting commences at the scheduled start time. Any delay due to painting, carpet steaming, cleaning, power washing, landscaping, or maintenance will result in a reschedule and a travel fee of $50 will be assessed
Copyright Ownership and Use:
In exchange for services provided, Salt Lake Real Estate Photography retains the right to sell, copy, display, and/or publish any/all images created under this agreement, to the general public, for any reason. Unless otherwise specified, all media created is owned by Salt Lake Real Estate Photography and Salt Lake Real Estate Photography is the copyright holder.
Unless otherwise noted, the client is granted permission to use the media created for the purpose of promoting and selling a specific property, home, unit, or vessel.
Permission to use media created by Salt Lake Real Estate Photography is not the same as owning the copyright.
For more information see chapter 2 of The Copyright Act of 1976 .
Use of media created is granted to a specific client or clients indicated on the invoice. A closed or paid invoice permits the client to use the images for the purpose of promoting and/or selling a specific property.
Sending final images to third party editing services such as Box Brownie is strictly prohibited. I will be happy to provide any adjustments needed to the final images.
Any media created by Salt Lake Real Estate Photography cannot be reproduced, redistributed, or resold without the written permission of the copyright holder (Salt Lake Real Estate Photography)
An invoice payment that is declined, refunded, or sent a chargeback is not a paid or closed invoice. Use of any media associated with that invoice after an invoice has been declined, refunded, or sent a chargeback is considered theft of intellectual property.
LIMITS OF LIABILITY:
While every reasonable effort will be made to produce and deliver outstanding photographs, because sometimes there are uncontrollable events, the photographer cannot guarantee delivery of any specifically requested image(s).
