Important liability statement
Whilst we will do our best (that is to use reasonable care and skill) in providing the property valuations, the property valuations provided on this Site are estimates only and you must only use them on that basis and only for personal (non-business) use. The Service works on the basis of analysing property prices for equivalent properties in the area. The equivalent properties may differ in a number of ways which are not taken into account, such as standard of construction and general condition or to specific location. Also, the valuations are by their nature subjective and based on market forces at the time (and markets can change for various reasons).
The valuations are not provided to be relied on for property sale, purchase, mortgage or related purposes. We strongly recommend that you seek a professional valuation from a suitably qualified surveyor or other suitably qualified professional before making any decision whether to buy, sell, let or rent a property, and that you seek advice from a suitably qualified estate agent before determining the market sale price of any property you wish to sell (and in fact it is recommended that you speak to more than one agent to compare valuations).
The valuations are provided for your use only and you may not encourage or allow any other person to rely on them. We shall not be liable for any losses you or anyone else suffers as a result of relying on the valuations. This includes not being liable for any loss of profit, loss of bargain, loss of capital through over-payment or under-sale or for any indirect, special or consequential loss. We cannot and do not guarantee that the Service will be constantly available or error-free. Also, our liability to you is limited to £100.

These cookies allow websites and applications to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. The information these cookies collect is usually anonymised which means we can’t identify you personally. They do not gather any information about you or remembering where you’ve been on the internet.

3. Analytics cookies
In order to keep Leaders Romans Group Digital Channels relevant, easy to use and up-to-date, we use web analytics services to help us understand how people use them. For example, we can see which parts of our Digital Channels are most popular, identify which properties have been viewed online, identify when errors occur and test different versions of a page or feature to see which one works best.
These web analytics services may be designed and operated by other companies on our behalf. They do this using small invisible images known as “web beacons" or “tracking pixels" that may be included on Leaders Romans Group Digital Channels. These are used to count the number of times something has been seen. These web beacons are anonymous and do not contain or collect any information that identifies you.
Cookies allow web analytics services to recognise your browser or device and, for instance, identify whether you have visited our Digital Channels before, what you have previously viewed or clicked on, and how you found us. The information is anonymous and only used for statistical purposes. It allows us to track information, such as how many individual users we have and how often they visit our websites. It also helps us to analyse patterns of user activity and to develop a better user experience. For example, we might see that many people who viewed Property A also viewed Property B and we can then recommend Property B to everyone else who viewed Property A.
We use remarketing codes to log when users view specific pages, allowing us to provide targeted advertising in the future. This means that after visiting Leaders Romans Group you may find advertising banners on other websites associated with your browsing history. The technology behind these services are based on cookies. This is a service offered to suggest services which may be of interest to you. This is an anonymous service and no personal or identifiable information is recorded by this advertising method, however if you do not wish to view these types of adverts you can opt out of these services at the following links: Opt out of Google Display Network retargeting
Web analytics data and cookies cannot be used to identify you as they never contain personal information such as your name or email address.

Leaders Romans Group do not control the use of these cookies and cannot access them, as cookies can only be accessed by the party who originally set them.
