1 Our services

Room Estate has made it its business to make the everyday life of tenants in flat-sharing communities as simple as possible through digitalization. Accordingly, we offer the following services:

 

1.1 information platform

With our services, we provide you with information on our rental properties, products on sale and all other associated services in a centralized manner. Some information is in any case publicly accessible, other information requires a user account for access or requires further information on your part.

 

1.2 Management of your rental relationship

Our services enable you to register for or apply for our rental properties and then, after successful examination, conclude the rental agreement. During the whole process you can get in contact with the flatmates of the shared flat you are registering for, get to know them better by means of your personalized profile or make an appointment for a viewing.

 

With the help of your user account you can manage your rental relationship online from contract conclusion to termination. All the necessary features for the property, your payments, your rental contract or simply to report defects, can be easily accessed. Our services in your cockpit offer you the possibility to manage the rental relationship in a simple way.

 

1.3 Communication and administration within your community

We offer you and your community the possibility to organize yourselves easily and efficiently by means of our features. Some matters are already organized by our services and make it easier for you to live together. However, new issues often arise in everyday life that need to be resolved between you and your roommates. With our services you can easily and quickly handle most organizational matters. You can also easily communicate with each other through our group chats.

 

1.4 Sale of products and services

So that you can use the right things at the right time in the right place, we offer with our services a variety of possibilities to purchase products and services from us.

5 Further provisions

5.1 Updating our terms of use

Our services are continually being improved, expanded or partially discontinued so that you and our community can enjoy a better service, product and living experience. For this reason, from time to time we may need to adjust or change the Terms of Use to reflect our services correctly and accurately.

 

Even if we would regret this, you may terminate our services at any time, provided that you do not have any open legal transactions with us. Room Estate may suspend or restrict the provision of services at any time without giving reasons.

 

5.2 Suspension, termination or limitation

Room Estate is supposed to be a place where people feel safe and comfortable. In particular we would like to be your everyday helper with our services and support you in your living experience.

 

If we determine that you are in apparent gross or repeated breach of our terms of use, policies, contracts, elements of contracts or the law, we may suspend or restrict our services to you. Please contact our support if you believe that your account has been inadvertently deactivated.

 

5.3 limitations of liability

In order to ensure a faultless and safe environment at Room Estate, we apply the necessary care and appropriate knowledge. Unfortunately, however, we cannot guarantee that our services will always function without interruptions, delays or defects. For this reason, we cannot accept any liability whatsoever and, to the extent permitted by law, exclude all liability. In particular, but not exclusively, we assume no liability in the following cases:

  • Failure of our online services or non-contractual claims, provided that we have acted with the necessary care and on the basis of reasonable knowledge.
  • Damages or losses due to missing or incorrect information.
  • any offensive, inappropriate, obscene, illegal or otherwise objectionable content posted by others that you may encounter on our products and/or services.
  • Events beyond our reasonable control.

In the case of an open contractually regulated legal relationship between you and us (e.g. in the case of a current rental agreement), the place of jurisdiction shall be the location of the rental object or the contractual item as well as the law applicable locally. If there are no open contractually regulated legal relationships, the registered office of Room Estate shall be the place of jurisdiction or the law applicable at the registered office of Room Estate.

  • Should individual provisions of this User Agreement be invalid or unenforceable or become invalid or unenforceable at a later date, the validity of the remaining provisions shall remain unaffected. The invalid or unenforceable provision shall be replaced by a valid and enforceable provision whose effects come as close as possible to the economic objective pursued by the contracting parties with the invalid or unenforceable provision.
