Prize draw Terms and Conditions
This prize draw is free to enter and is open to all tenants who use the HomeSwapper service.
You are automatically entered into a prize draw by performing any one of the following tasks on HomeSwapper: (a) uploading a photo of your home; (b) completing your details; (c) responding to messages in a timely manner as defined; (d) making your home advert live. You will be awarded a ‘star’ upon the successful completion of a task as listed. Each ‘star’ you are awarded represents one entry into that particular month’s prize draw. You can be awarded up to a maximum of five ‘stars’ per calendar month, at which point you will be awarded no further ‘stars’ during that calendar month. On the first day of the next calendar month, the number of ‘stars’ you have earned will reset to zero and you will have the ability to earn up to five further stars for the new calendar month as detailed above in this clause 1.
If you fulfil any of the HomeSwapper tasks as listed but do not wish to participate in the prize draw then please contact us within 14 days of completing the above tasks at the address below. By entering the prize draw, you agree to be legally bound by these terms and conditions.
Owing to the nature of the HomeSwapper service, internet access is required in order to enter the prize draw.
You will be notified via by our customer service team within 7 days of the end of each prize draw if you are a winner. Details of the name and county of prize-winners are available on request by contacting us at the below address. You have 30 days to claim the prize from the date we email you. If a prize is not claimed then it will remain unclaimed and will be offered in one of the later prize draws. If a prize is not claimed from the final prize draw, it will remain unclaimed and will not be offered again.
Entry into the prize draw is limited to five entries (i.e. five ‘stars’) per lead tenant, per month. Each lead tenant is limited to entry into a maximum of five separate prize draws. You will only be able to claim a prize if you are verified by your landlord as a tenant. Once you have entered the prize draw you will be automatically entered into the current month’s prize draw.
You must be 18 years of age or over and resident in the UK to be eligible to participate in this prize draw.
Each prize draw will take place at the end of the calendar month. You will be eligible to participate in the prize draw which takes place at the end of the calendar month in which you complete the tasks given in clause 1 above and then the subsequent four prize draws.
If the dates of the prize draws are changed due to circumstances outside of our reasonable control, we will do everything reasonable to ensure that tenants who participated within the original dates will not be disadvantaged.
Entries to each prize draw must be received by the closing date of each respective prize draw. Late entries and entries that are incomplete, incorrectly submitted or otherwise deficient will not be accepted. The selection of the winners will take place immediately upon the prize draw ending. Winners are selected by a computer process that produces verifiably random results. In the event that a computerised process is unavailable then winners will be selected by an independent person or under the supervision of an independent person.
Subject to clause 2 above, there will be one prize awarded per prize draw. All prizes are non-transferable and non-exchangeable. We offer no cash alternative and winners must accept prizes in the form offered. Alternative prizes to those listed are not available and cannot be requested.
No third party entries, bulk entries or entries submitted by agents will be accepted. No incomplete or corrupted entries will be accepted. In this event that person's entry will be disqualified and any prize award will be void. Any malicious or manipulative attempt to influence the prize or the operation of the prize draw will result in disqualification at the sole discretion of Housing Partners Limited.
