If a dispute should arise between You and Jovi Realty, we want to provide You with an efficient and cost-effective means of resolution by using our customer service team. Customer service disputes may be resolved to the customer's satisfaction by using our customer service, reachable by sending an email to hello@jovirealty.com or through the "Contact" section of our Website.

If Your dispute cannot be resolved using our customer service team, these Terms of Use describe how we shall proceed with the resolution of the dispute.


Please read this section carefully – it may significantly affect Your legal rights, including Your right to file a lawsuit in court and to have a jury hear Your claims. It contains procedures for mandatory binding arbitration and a class action waiver.

We both agree to arbitrate: You and Jovi Realty agree to resolve any claims relating to these Terms of Use through final and binding arbitration, except that, to the extent You have in any manner violated or threatened to violate Jovi Realty's intellectual property rights. Under such circumstances, Jovi Realty may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of the Website, or intellectual property infringement without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute resolution process mentioned above.

Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court and seeks to resolve disputes more quickly. Instead of a judge or a jury, the case will be decided by a neutral arbitrator who has the power to award the same damages and relief that a court can. If any provision of this arbitration Agreement is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision shall be severed, and the remaining arbitration terms shall be enforced.

Authority of arbitrator: The arbitrator will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of You and Jovi Realty, and the dispute will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the Arbitration Rules, and the Terms of Use. The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon You and Jovi Realty.

No class actions: You may only resolve disputes with us on an individual basis, and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations are not allowed.

Waiver of jury trial: the parties hereby waive their constitutional and statutory rights to go to court and have a trial in front of a judge or a jury, instead electing that all claims and disputes shall be resolved by arbitration. In the event any litigation should arise between You and Jovi Realty in any state or federal court in a suit to vacate or enforce an arbitration award or otherwise, You and Jovi Realty waive all rights to a jury trial, instead electing that the dispute is resolved by a judge. You acknowledge that You have been advised that You may consult with an attorney in deciding to accept this Agreement to arbitrate.

You can decline this Agreement to arbitrate by emailing Jovi Realty at hello@jovirealty.com and providing the requested information as follows: (1)Your Name; (2) the URL of Terms of Use and Agreement to Arbitrate Disputes; (3) Your Address; (4) Your Phone Number; (5) and a clear statement that You wish to opt-out of this arbitration provision in the Terms of Use. The Opt-Out Notice must be emailed no later than 30 days after the date You first accept the Terms of Use by using the Website.

Forum Selection

In any circumstances where the Agreement to Arbitrate Disputes permits the parties to litigate in court, these Terms of Use shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the province of British Columbia, excluding its conflict of law rules. You further expressly consent and agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of a court of competent jurisdiction located in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Third-party rights in relation to our Website

These Terms of Use are for the benefit of Jovi Realty, its officers, directors, employees, affiliates, agents, licensors, and suppliers. Each of these individuals or entities shall have the right to assert and enforce these Terms of Use directly against You on its or their own behalf.
