13. Contract period, termination, and changes
Tessin issues no recommendations, advice or guarantees with regard to Investments. Tessin merely makes a technical tool and a Bulletin Board available to Real Estate Companies and has no responsibility for or insight into the investment, the marketing, or the offer. The Investments marketed on the Bulletin Board are in normal cases associated with high risk. These usually relate to front end financing, with or without subordinated securities. It is typically smaller players with limited financial resources who offer the Investment. Generally, all Investments marketed on the Bulletin Board are associated with risks that banks or financial institutions do not accept, which is also the reason why the estimated return is unusually high. Anyone who cannot be considered an experienced real estate investor should always consult relevant expertise, such as financial advisors, investment advisers, a lawyer, an auditor or similar, before making an Investment.
Every Investment Offer is unique and it is therefore of the utmost importance that the Investor carefully evaluates both the Investment Offer and the Real Estate Company before making an Investment. The Real Estate Company is responsible for both carrying out and administering the Investment, as it is for the Investment Offer in its entirety, including, but limited to, its terms and conditions, forecasts and any promises. The Investment Offer has been designed and approved by the Real Estate Company.
Real Estate Investments or Investments marketed on the Bulletin Board are not protected by the provisions of the Swedish Deposit Guarantee Act (1995:1571), the deposit guarantee referred to in the Finnish Financial Stability Authority Act (19.12.2014/1195), or the Swedish Investor Compensation Act (1999:158), or the compensation fund for investor protection referred to in Chapter 11 of the Finnish Investment Services Act (747/2012), or other guarantees not specifically stated, meaning that the Investor cannot receive any compensation under these rules should the Real Estate Company be declared bankrupt or have payment difficulties.
The Investor is aware that the Investment Offer, due to lack of interest or for some other reason, may be cancelled at any time. The Investor is aware that the possibility to withdraw from an ongoing Investment will in many cases be small or non-existent. The Investment is not listed and the Investor will therefore not be able to dispose of it on the Stock Exchange or a related marketplace. The Investor is also aware that the simple promissory note issued by the Real Estate Company is often not transferrable.
The Investor is wholly responsible for their use of the Bulletin Board and for any investment decisions made that may arise from this. The Investor is aware that an Investment is always associated with risk and that all or part of the invested capital may be lost. The Investor is also aware that some Investments are associated with unusually high risk, including, but not limited to, construction risk, financial risk, liquidity risk, counterparty risk, and disposal risk. The Real Estate Company will in many cases lack considerable financial resources, which may lead to further elevated risk for the Investor.
