Terms and conditions
General terms and conditions
www.cuanto.nl is operated by BALA United bv.
1. Renting out your property
The charge for listing your rental property is $185. We need you to submit four to eight photos of the property, and provide us with the property’s location and address, your rental property charge, and a text describing the property in Dutch, English or Spanish. We also need your email address and phone number. Once we have received this information, we will list the property details. You will be notified if there is interest in the property (also when the interested party is an intermediary). Payment is due when listing your property and by accepting the Terms & Conditions.
Cuanto does not get involved in any communications between house owners and renters, or in any of the agreements reached by house owners and renters. Setting prices and handling payment is the responsibility of the house owner.
2. Selling your property
There is no charge for listing your selling property. If you sell the property, whether directly or through a real estate agent, we charge a commission of 1% of the selling price. If you also need us to handle the selling procedure till the notary, we charge 1,5% of the selling price. The commission needs to be paid in full, immediately after you’ve completed the sale.
If your property is advertised on Cuanto.nl and at the same time offered for sale through a real estate broker, Cuanto.nl charges a commission of 1%.
When switching to Cuanto, any transition costs that have to be paid to a real-estate agency are fulfilled by Bala United B.V., with a maximum amount up to 250 USD. This amount will eventually be deducted from the 1% commission.
We need you to submit four to eight photos of the property, and provide us with the property’s location and address, your list price, and a text describing the property in Dutch, English or Spanish. We also need your email address and phone number. We would advise you to put the property on the market at market value, to ensure it brings in offers. If your property is sold within four months of being delisted from www.cuanto.nl, the 1% commission charge applies.
Cuanto.nl provides the opportunity to promote the property through social media feeds. Promotions can be bought (<25 USD) and are eventually deducted from the 1% commission. The maximum amount of promotions is equal to the 1,5% commission.
Cuanto.nl is not liable for errors or technical failures on the site.
When accepting the Terms & Conditions, you are obliged to notify us when you have sold your property through Cuanto. You will have to inform Cuanto with personal details of the buyer so we can verify how the selling procedure has been completed.

If property details submitted on the site include (a) photo(s), advertisers guarantee they took the photo themselves, and that the photo is a fair representation of reality (i.e., the photo is not manipulated or tricked in any way), and that by taking the photo they have not committed a criminal offence or infringed the rights of third parties (e.g. copyright), and that they have not done so either by supplying a photo to Cuanto.nl, and that they give Cuanto.nl the right to publish the photo and distribute the photo for publication by third parties, without infringing the rights of third parties (e.g. copyright or portrait rights).

Cuanto.nl reserves the right to adjust advertising rates annually to reflect inflation. Customers are notified of this in writing, at least one month in advance. A potential increase of advertising rates for inflation does not justify customers to shorten the duration of their contract.
If payment is not completed by the customer within the term of payment, Cuanto.nl has the right, when the due payment date has past, to increase the amount due with delayed interest equal to the current legal commercial interest rate, and without prior notice.

If payment is not completed by the customer within the term of payment, Cuanto.nl can, without prior notice, deny said customer access to its services until payment is received.

The extra costs incurred by Cuanto.nl for this will be charged to the customer, as will the remainder of any amount due for the agreed term of the contract.
The above also applies to refused automatic payments.
If not notifying Cuanto.nl in time, i.c. within 7 days after passing notarial deed, we will charge 15% of the selling price.
