Please familiarize yourself with Officesquirrel's Listing Policies and Guidelines (the Listing Policies) prior to entering a property listing on the Officesquirrel website. All listings are subject to the Listing Policies.
All listings entered on Officesquirrel may be subject to review by Officesquirrel company personnel (Listing Review) prior to becoming available for full viewing online. Officesquirrel reserves the right, but not the obligation, to review any listing entered by Customer on Officesquirrel. Although Customer's listings may be subject to Listing Review, Customer remains solely responsible for abiding by the Listing Policies and Officesquirrel's Terms and Conditions. The Listing Policies prohibit Customer from entering any listing that infringes upon the intellectual property rights of any party, or that otherwise violates Officesquirrel's Terms and Conditions. By entering listings on Officesquirrel, Customer warrants and represents that Customer owns or otherwise controls all of the rights to such content including, without limitation, all the rights necessary for Customer to provide, post, upload, input or submit such content. Customer acknowledges that Officesquirrel cannot police or control all of the content provided by Customer(s) that is made available on Officesquirrel.
Listings that violate any of the Listing Policies stated herein will not receive Listing Review approval for active posting on Officesquirrel until the issue in question has been addressed. When conducting Listing Review, new listings added to Officesquirrel are examined to determine whether such listings are in compliance with the Listing Policies. In the event Listing Review determines a listing violates Listing Policies (including but not limited to containing inaccurate or incomplete information), Listing Review will send an email message to the Customer about such listing, clearly stating how such proposed listing does not conform to established Listing Policies and offering solutions on how to rectify the deficiency. After the Customer receives notice from Listing Review, the Customer will be given a reasonable amount of time (routinely, 48 hours) to respond. It is then the sole responsibility of the Customer to review the communication from Listing Review, revise the listing as appropriate, and resubmit the corrected listing. Once the appropriate revision has been made, and Listing Review determines the listing is compliant with Listing Policies, the listing will be made available for full viewing on the site. However, if the Customer fails to respond to the communication from Listing Review, Officesquirrel in its sole discretion reserves the right to remove any and all content that continues to violate the Listing Policies, including disallowing listings from the Service.
All fields noted by an asterisk (*) on the add property page are required fields and must be completed with valid data pertaining to the property being listed (Required Fields). Property listings where data is missing or data entered in the Required Fields is deemed illogical will be removed from the site until valid content is entered in the Required Fields.
All Address fields on Officesquirrel including Address, City, State and Zip Code are Required Fields. These fields are intended for listing the physical address or intersection of the property being listed. These fields are not for the listing of additional information about the property. Entering Confidential, Call Broker, Withheld, or any other verbiage designed to withhold, hide, and/or conceal the physical address in the Address1 or City Name fields is strictly prohibited. Officesquirrel reserves the right to remove any and all property listings with non-address related or invalid information in any address specific field with or without contacting the listing broker.
Property descriptions are for the description of the property that is for sale or for lease only. The posting of contact name, phone number, fax number, company information or URL links for any contacts including those who are not Officesquirrel members is strictly prohibited in this section. This type of information in the Property Description field will be removed from the listing and the listing broker will receive an email informing them of the change. Habitual violations of this policy will result in Officesquirrel's removal of all of such Customer's active listings on the Service until all such content has been appropriately rectified.
Properties must be identified with the appropriate property type. Adding the same listings under multiple property types is prohibited (see Duplicates). Officesquirrel allows each listing to associate with up to three (3) property subtypes in order to improve exposure for the listing during searches. Officesquirrel reserves the right to change or remove property types deemed to be misleading.
A valid Sales Price in the Price Asking field for the listed property is required for all Officesquirrel Sales Listings and a valid rental rate for each space is required for all Officesquirrel Lease Listings. Confidential pricing is permitted on sales listings. By entering a valid Asking Price in the required field and utilizing this function, properties will return in price range searches. Officesquirrel reserves the right to remove all listings that are deemed to have invalid prices or rental rates including any listing with $0 listed in Lease Rate, and Sales Price fields.
In order to maximize the features of the Officesquirrel service, Customers should note certain parameters in the listing process.
Officesquirrel is a web site for commercial real estate. Listing of single-family residences is prohibited on the Officesquirrel website, except if such residences have a residential income purpose (e.g. to purchase a residence whose customary use has been as a rental property), in which case such properties may by listed. The listing of single family residential income property under all other categories is prohibited. Any listing deemed to be a non-income generating, single-family residence will be removed from the system during the listing approval process and an email will be sent to the Customer stating that the property has been identified as a single-family residential property.
All Advertising Member contact information will be deemed for public use. All Browsing users will have access to all information associated with property listings. Officesquirrel deems the management of confidential contact information up to the advertising member.
Duplicates Property Listings
Officesquirrel prohibits the listing of a single property more than once on the web site at the same time. A duplicate is defined as the same physical property listed under more than one property ID. Office condos with the same physical address are exempt as long as a unit number is included in the address field. Land parcel listings are excluded as long as the sum total of all individual parcels listed does not exceed the total acreage available at the physical site. Officesquirrel reserves the right to remove any and all properties that are determined to be duplicates with or without contacting the listing broker. Customers may, however, list a property for sale and for lease at the same time.
Officesquirrel prohibits the listing of the same space more than once on the web site at the same time. A space listing is defined as a single suite or unit of space listed for lease. Total space available in a building cannot exceed the total square footage of the building. Officesquirrel reserves the right to combine duplicate space listings into a single listing or to remove the listing from the system with or without contacting the listing broker.
Listing Quantity, Submission, and Display
Premium Membership for Professionals is an unlimited listing membership. Premium Members must list all Premium listings in accordance with Officesquirrel's Terms and Conditions. Officesquirrel reserves the right to remove listings that are deemed in violation of Officesquirrel's Terms and Conditions.
Use of Photographs
Building photographs posted, attached, or affixed to listings must be actual photographs of the building being listed. All such photographs must be either (a) the property of the listing broker or (b) the listing broker must have received all necessary rights and authorizations, including from the photographer and/or copyright owner of any photographs, to publish such photographs on the Customer's website or on Officesquirrel's website for the purpose of advertising the subject property. Photographs uploaded that are not directly related to the building or property being listed, including brokerage company logos, may be removed at the discretion of Officesquirrel.
Customers are advised to refrain from engaging in the conduct specified in this section, as it is not permitted on the Officesquirrel Service.
Listings on Officesquirrel are for properties that are currently offered for Sale or Lease. It is not permitted to post listings on the Service that have already been sold or are no longer on the market, i.e. posting listings on the Service for marketing or advertising purposes (Billboard Listings). All listings for properties already sold or off-market will be removed.
Officesquirrel offers the ability to search for properties on key words. This is designed to enable searchers to narrow their criteria based on specific requirements. Keyword manipulation is unfair to searchers by returning listings that clearly do not meet their criteria. Keywords identified in the property name, property description, location description or property highlights field that are clearly not relevant to the property being marketed will be removed by Listing Review. Habitual abuse of this policy by a Customer may, at the sole discretion of Officesquirrel, lead to the removal of all of that Customer's active listings from the web site and suspension of that Customer's ability to list properties on the Service.
Use of profanity or vulgar language in any section of the Officesquirrel database is strictly prohibited. This includes the use of language that is generally considered obscene, profane, sexual, hateful, or racist in nature. Listing or user information that includes profane language will be removed from the Service immediately. Customers posting such language to the Officesquirrel web site may be subject to disciplinary action, including indefinite suspension of a Customer's account, temporary suspension or a formal warning.
