Terms and Conditions
Fillit Limited is registered in Ireland under company number 572284. We have our registered office at Pottery House, Pottery Road, Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin, Ireland.
How We Work
Fillit is an online platform that connects people who have empty space with people looking for temporary space for events, pop-ups, shared retail etc. Letting arrangements are made directly between ‘Landlords’ and 'Tenants' with Fillit acting as a facilitator to collect agreed funds from 'Tenants' on behalf of 'Landlords'.
A 'Landlord' is any user who manages a space/s on Fillit.
Fillit is not responsible for the conduct of any prospective 'Tenant' during the negotiations of any Tenancy Agreement. 'Landlords' accept that any decision to let a property to a particular 'Tenant' is made solely by the 'Landlord' without any representation, warranty or statement made by Fillit. 'Landlords' making their properties available through www.fillit.ie agree that Fillit will act as a third party agency to process the payment and hold it in escrow until the first day of the event has taken place in their space. Fillit has no obligations to 'Landlords' to reinstate or repair, any properties let by 'Landlords' at the end of any tenancy agreement. 'Landlords' understand and agree that they are solely responsible for determining (i) your applicable Tax reporting requirements, and (ii) the Taxes that should be included, and for including Taxes to be collected or obligations relating to applicable Taxes in Listings. You are also solely responsible for remitting to the relevant authority any Taxes included or received by you. Fillit cannot and does not offer Tax-related advice.
A 'Tenant is any user who expresses interest in a space on Fillit. Interest can include; 'Enquiries', 'Requests' or browsing the site.
f you are a potential 'Tenant', when you have identified a property on Fillit which meets your requirements you submit an enquiry to the 'Landlord' via the Website. The 'Landlord' will then promptly respond, either accepting your enquiry or declining it. If the offer is accepted you will enter into an agreement with the 'Landlord' either on the template terms or specific terms advised by the 'Landlord'.
By using the website to access the database of available properties 'Tenants' agree that they shall not make rental payments in respect of properties they have found on the website directly to the 'Landlord' other than with the prior written agreement of Fillit. 'Tenants' must comply with the terms of their agreement with the 'Landlord', including any special terms or requirements that may be specified by the 'Landlord'. 'Tenants' are responsible for insurance against risks normally borne by occupiers of retail premises or otherwise specified by the 'Landlord'. If a 'Tenant' has any doubt about what insurance is required they should consult their own insurers or insurance brokers. Fillit is happy to link 'Tenants' with our partner agency to arrange temporary event/retail insurance. 'Tenants' are responsible for satisfying themselves that a listed property fits their requirements, both as regards the specific features and facilities at the property and as regards the location. Fillit does not warrant or represent listed by 'Landlords' are of suitable condition to be let or that 'Landlords' have the right to enter into rental contracts in respect of the properties listed by 'Landlords' and to receive rental payments in respect of the properties. 'Landlords' are responsible for the legality, accuracy and completeness of the description of all properties and related terms posted on the Website. Fillit disclaims all liability for the legality, accuracy or completeness of any rental offers or content posted by 'Landlords' and in respect of any proposed rental contract that fails to complete for any reason whatsoever. Rental contracts are made exclusively between 'Landlords' and 'Tenants'. Fillit is not a party to any rental contract, or negotiation to any rental contract, and does not fulfil any obligations derived from the contractual relationship between 'Landlords' and 'Tenants'. Fillit does not make or accept any offers, either in its own capacity or on behalf of either 'Landlords' or 'Tenants' or any other party. Fillit disclaims all liability arising from or related to any rental contract to the fullest extent permitted by law. 'Tenants' must ensure that Fire and Safety standards are maintained at all times. Equipment, furniture or storage must never block or impede access or egress from the building. Fire exits and equipment must be kept clear and available at all times.
'Tenants' must accept the licence contract and process their payment for a space within 72 hours of receiving the offer from the 'Landlord'.
Fillit does not at any time provide, or purport to provide, any advice, or advisory services, to 'Landlords', 'Tenants' or any other party, in particular with respect to the commercial, financial, legal or any other consequences of any rental agreement. Fillit disclaims all liability relating to the provision of advice relating to the property. 'Landlords' and 'Tenants' accept that Fillit’s role is limited to no more than that of a facilitator. Fillit reserves the right at its sole discretion to remove listings from the Website, illegal, inaccurate or misleading content, including anything that in its opinion is injurious to Fillit’s goodwill or goodwill attaching to the Website, without notice. Fillit reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to modify the Site, Application or Services or to modify these Terms, including the Service Fees, at any time and without prior notice. If we modify these Terms, we will post a notification on the Site or via the Application or otherwise provide you with notice of the update in the "Last Updated Date" section at the top of these Terms. By continuing to access or use the Site, Application or Services after we have posted a modification on the Site or via the Application or have provided you with notice of a modification, you are indicating that you agree to be bound by the modified Terms. If the modified Terms are not acceptable to you, your only recourse is to cease using the Site, Application and Services.
Fillit allows 'Landlords' to choose one of two standardised cancellation policies from ‘Relaxed’ to ‘Somewhat Flexible’ when a space is listed (this selection can be changed at any time). ‘Somewhat Flexible’ allows 'Tenants' to cancel up to 7 days before the requested booking date and ‘Flexible’ allows a full refund up to 48 hours prior to the requested the booking date. Each listing will clearly state the cancellation policy, 'Tenants' are responsible for making themselves familiar with the 'Landlords' selection. Fillit fees are non-refundable. However, if a 'Landlord' cancels after the cancellation period expires, and the 'Tenant' chooses to be refunded, the full amount plus Fillit service fee is refunded. As a consequence of this breach of contract, 'Landlords' may be liable at the discretion of the 'Tenant', for damages or costs incurred as a direct result of the cancellation.
Since cancellations by a 'Landlord' can impact confidence in the platform, after three cancellations in one year, the listing will be suspended until an internal review is conducted. Extenuating circumstances will be considered on a case by case basis.
Once the 'Landlord' accepts the enquiry and sends back the Licence agreement, the has 72 hours to accept the agreement. The 'Tenant' can commit to payment by Credit Transfer, in good faith that payment is received no later than 5 days before the event. Alternatively, the 'Tenant' can enter their credit card details to confirm their booking. If the event goes ahead, payment will be automatically processed 48 hours after the 'Landlords' cancellation period expires. Payment will be held in escrow until the first day of the event takes place, after which the Fillit service fee (15%) will be deducted, and the rental fee will be transferred to the 'Landlord's' bank account within 3-4 days. Payouts to the 'Landlord' can be subject to delay from time to time, but will be transferred at the earliest opportunity possible.
Fillit makes no warranty as to any particular result being achieved or obtained, or being achievable or obtainable, from use of the Website and the introduction of any prospective to 'Landlord'.
