(Click here to view these) Where there is a conflict between these Additional Terms & Conditions for Designers and the Terms & Conditions for All Users, these Additional Terms & Conditions for Designers shall prevail. Any terms that are defined in the Terms & Conditions for All Users shall have the same meanings in this section.


By registering or agreeing to be registered as an interior designer on this website, you expressly, irrevocably and unconditionally agree to be bound by the terms of this Agreement.


Interior Design Referrals


Once you have registered with us as a Designer, we will aim to introduce you to people and businesses wanting to engage the services of a suitable interior designer. In doing so, we will generally:


1. speak to or email each potential client in order to find out more about their project, what they hope to achieve, their budget and timeframe (a “Job”);

2. then contact you to determine whether you wish to offer your services to the client in connection with the Job;

3. agree with you a percentage commission in respect of the Job, payable in accordance with the Payment Terms below (the “Agreed Commission”). In the absence of an express agreement as to this Agreed Commission, it will be set at 20% of any fees you earn from the client in respect of the Job;

4. we will then pass your details to the client and theirs to you. The onus will be on you to contact the client in order to take the Job forward and secure the work.


If, for whatever reason you are not commissioned by the client in respect of a Job, you are under no obligation to pay us any amounts whether by way of Agreed Commission or otherwise.


You acknowledge that we are under no obligation to refer work to you.


Subsequent Work for the same Client


A client introduced to you by us may subsequently engage you to carry out either (a) further work on the same property (“Follow-up Work”) or (b) work on another property (a “New Project”).


You agree to pay us commissions at a rate of 20% of any fees you charge the client in respect of any Follow-up Work and at a rate of 5% of any fees you charge in respect of any New Project, such commissions to be payable on the same terms as the Agreed Commission as set out in this Agreement.


Payment Terms


You hereby irrevocably and unconditionally agree:


1. to keep us updated regularly as to the status of any Jobs referred by us to you;

2. in particular, to inform us at the outset of each Job where you have been commissioned by the client:


(i) the agreed total budget (if any);

(ii) the estimated amount of your fee;

(iii) how your fee is to be calculated, whether as a percentage of total budget, per hour, per day, a fixed amount or some other means; and

(iv) the expected duration of the Job; and


3. each and every time you invoice the Client in respect of a Job:


(i) to inform us of the amount of such invoice and how much of such invoice relates to your fee; and

(ii) to pay us the Agreed Commission (plus VAT and/or any other applicable tax) in respect of such fee within 30 days of the date of such invoice.


Unless otherwise provided by law, any Agreed Commission that you have paid to us is non-refundable. You shall pay all amounts due to us in full without any deduction or withholding and shall not assert any credit or set-off or counterclaim against us in order to justify the withholding of the whole or any part of any such amount.


If any Agreed Commission becomes overdue for payment, we may claim interest on them (both before and after judgement) at a daily rate of 3% above the base rate of the Bank of England until all outstanding Agreed Commission has been received in cleared funds.
