Terms & Policies
HomeBoost is the trading name of HomeBoost New Zealand Pty Limited, a private company registered in New Zealand under company number 6039969 and with the New Zealand Business number NZBN9429042483113. In these terms and conditions and legal notices the company is referred to as either “we” or “us”.
We are associated with HomeBoost Mortgages NZ Limited.
We are not, nor do we hold ourselves out to be a licensed real estate agent. The services that we provide are not real-estate agency work. We provide the HomeBoost website as a public marketplace to enable sellers to market their properties for sale and buyers to view properties and make contact with the sellers.
We encourage buyers and sellers to use the services of other professionals to assist them in the process but we do not represent a buyer or a seller.
Privacy We may collect and hold information relating to you that you have provided to us or that we may have obtained from another source (such as marketing organisations and credit agencies). You agree that we may use your information for the purposes of carrying out credit checks, dealing with requests, complaints and other customer related activities, market and product analysis.
HomeBoost will only share your contact detail information with Private Vendors, Real Estate Agents or New Build companies (together referred to as our Seller Partners) who are selling properties that you have shown interest in, by clicking on one of our ads and supplying your personal details or by clicking on the contact details for a particular home. HomeBoost will use your details for direct marketing purposes, and will also pass your details on to our Seller Partners to use for their own direct marketing purposes in relation to the sale of residential homes. Seller Partners will use and store your contact information in accordance with their individual privacy policies. Links to these policies can be found here.
