Rights on property photos

By Shinta 14 February 2014 22

Hello Rioters,

Does anyone knows about who has the rights of the photos taken by property agent. I thought we have the rights because it’s our property and we paid for the photos taken through the agent. But the agent said that the photos are belong to them and we can’t use them. Thank you.

What’s Your opinion?

Check the advertising agreement you entered into. If you paid for the advertising package seperately (which includes a full fee for the photography), the photos are yours and you can ask for the originals (un-watermarked).

I terminated a sales agreement but asked for (and got) the photos because I paid for them already.

Sold a house via agent at auction in December.

Professionally done shots were shopped to the shithouse. Lawns greened and smoothed, cracks and marks removed from walls and other surfaces, fires added to fire-places. Online, it looked like a super-shiny version of the federation original.

Considering the ethical reputation of the real estate industry, I assume the practice is standard.
