By submitting your details to us and so creating an account with us, you warrant that you are over 18 years old, reside in the United Kingdom and that the details you provide to us are true, accurate, complete and current.

Buying Your Sofa Through Our Marketplace

How It Works

We Are Sofas is the owner and operator of a used sofa marketplace, whereby you sellers have the opportunity to make their sofa available for sale to a range of sofa buying partners and consumers, through the channel of Sofalistic.co.uk, a site owned by We Are Sofas Ltd.

In these Terms, we refer to Sofa Partners and Online Sofa Buyers, collectively as our”Sofa Buying Partners”.

When you sell your sofa through our Website marketplace, your sofa will be purchased by a Sofa Buying Partner and not We Buy Sofas. This also means that the contract for the sale of your sofa will be between you and that sofa Buying Partner. 

At no point does Sofalistic purchase any sofas itself, nor does it acquire any risk or title to any sofa made available for purchase via the Website. 

Tackling Fraud and Criminality

We take instances of fraud and criminality on our platform seriously. Your transaction may be frozen or cancelled by us and/or the Sofa Buying Partner should we reasonably suspect any instance of fraud, money laundering, proceeds of crime, breach of any company policies or the policies of our third party payments processing provider. 

Other Services

Specific services that we offer, or make available to you from time to time, through the Website may also be governed by additional or alternative terms and conditions with us, or other third parties (including third party privacy policies). Where you take up any such services, please review these additional terms and conditions carefully.

If any provision or part-provision of these Terms is or becomes invalid, illegal or unenforceable, it shall be deemed modified to the minimum extent necessary to make it valid, legal and enforceable. If such modification is not possible, the relevant provision or part-provision shall be deemed deleted. Any such modification to or deletion shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the rest of these Terms.

Without prejudice to any other rights or remedies that we may have, you acknowledge and agree that damages alone would not be an adequate remedy for any breach of these Terms by you.
