We do not warrant that ArthurPay’s Platform or services are appropriate for any landlord or property manager whose business or payments are within the scope of and/or governed by The Client Money Protection Schemes for Property Agents (Requirement to Belong to a Scheme etc.) Regulations 2019. Payees are solely responsible for ensuring that they manage any funds in a manner that satisfies the CMP Regulations which may include transferring appropriate funds to a third-party client account.
Payees are solely responsible for ensuring that they have all appropriate licences and permissions required to operate their rental business and comply with all requirements of any memberships and governing bodies to which they are subject, and agree to hold ArthurPay harmless for any breaches by the Payee of such requirements.
KYC AND KYB PROCEDURES
In order to ensure that Payees are suitable for the Platform, Payees may be subject to KYC and/or KYB vetting processes once they have been registered on the Platform (KYC Checks). Our Partner Modulr FS Limited will conduct KYC Checks on our behalf as we and they deem appropriate, in accordance with the Modulr Terms and applicable laws.

We, together with our Partner, retain full and sole discretion as to whether Payees and some Payers are accepted onto the Platform or not. You agree that you will have no claim or action against us if we choose not to accept you as Payee or Payer on our Platform, whether as a result of KYC Checks or otherwise. We cannot always provide reasons for not accepting Payees or Payers, although we will make efforts to do so where we feel it would be fair or appropriate. At our sole discretion, KYC Checks may be conducted in whole or part by third-party services, including our Partner, at any time. In addition to using KYC Checks to identify the source of funds, and identify paying individuals, KYC Checks may also be used, for example, to conduct credit checks, company searches, general suitability in respect of our Platform, and criminal background and you consent to those third-party service providers reviewing your information provided about your company and/or you personally.

OUR ROLE IN PAYMENTS COMPLETED THROUGH ARTHURPAY
Our Platform exists, amongst other things, to allow landlords and tenants to efficiently and transparently manage payments between them (Payments). Once a Payment has been made by a Payer to a Payee, our involvement is limited to our obligations as set out in these Terms and anything beyond these obligations is beyond our reasonable control. As such we cannot be held responsible for the actions or omissions of Payers or Payees generally outside of the Platform. We are also not responsible for any incorrect Payments or incorrectly calculated Payments. In particular, we play no role and are in no way a party to any landlord and tenant (or similar) relationship, established in any lease or other form of occupancy agreement between two or more parties outside of our Platform. Payees and Payers are solely responsible for their rights, responsibilities, and obligations existing outside of the Platform, and Arthur is not a party to any contract between any Payer(s) or Payee(s). ArthurPay exists to facilitate Payments between them only, and cannot guarantee the performance by either party of their respective obligations under a private agreement between them, and will hold no liability for failure to perform or inadequate or negligent performance.
Please note that all terms of the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 or other applicable legislation in respect of cooling-off periods or similar relating to sales concluded between businesses and customers apply only between the applicable businesses and customers, and not Arthur.
All disputes or disagreements arising between Payers and Payees must be concluded off the Platform. Each Payee agrees to indemnify ArthurPay in full for all losses, costs and expenses arising out of any claim made against ArthurPay in respect of an actual or potential breach by a Payee of its own terms agreed with a Payer.
ACCESS AND REGISTRATION
After registering for ArthurPay, Payees or Payers can sign into our Platform using their existing account login details.
All Payees or Payers must provide truthful and accurate information when registering with us, including without limitation for the purposes of KYC Checks. Any incorrect or untruthful information provided by Payees or Payers may result in that Payee’s or Payer’s account being temporarily or permanently suspended, which may result in, without limitation, closure of any Virtual Account(s) and expiry of any outstanding Payment Links. In such cases, Arthur is not responsible for any losses incurred including loss of any data, such as Payment and transaction histories.
Payees or Payers are responsible for looking after the security of their account information. This means that they are responsible for all activities that occur on the account and for any access to or use of the Platform by them or any person using the account even if that access or use has not been authorised by them. Payees or Payers must notify us immediately if there has been any unauthorised use of their account or any other breach of security relating to the Platform. We are not responsible for any loss or damage caused by the disclosure of their account details to someone else.
Payees or Payers are responsible for ensuring that the contact information we hold about them is up to date. Please amend the details as appropriate from time to time to notify us of any changes.
PAYMENTS WITHIN THE PLATFORM
Payments by a Payer to a Payee’s Virtual Account
Payees can set up Charges for payment to them by a Payer. Payees, and not ArthurPay, are solely responsible for checking and ensuring Charges (such as rental payments, management fees, landlord setup fees, and all other fee types) are set-up in full and correctly. ArthurPay does not manage these Charges and cannot be held responsible or liable for claims due to incorrect or missing Charges.
Payments can be made by a Payer to a Payee’s Virtual Account, following the on-Platform instructions, for example through the use of a Payment Link. Once a Payment Link has been sent to the Payer, it will remain active until the applicable Charge has been settled.
The Platform allows for payments to be made by open banking or bank transfer. Timing for processing payments is always subject to the Payer’s bank and the speed with which their payment can be processed through their bank. Once a payment is approved and processed by the bank, it is sent to and shown within the Payee’s Virtual Account.
Once a Payment is confirmed, a Payee can initiate a Payout to their Nominated Account, which, through our Payment Service, we aim to process within one (1) day (which is subject to any manual reconciliation). All Payees can view the overall balance in their Virtual Account.
Payments processed through the Platform are reflected within the Payer’s or Payee’s applicable CRM Platform or Occupant App, although please note that there may be reconciliation periods where the Platform is transmitting data to the CRM Platform or Occupant App as applicable.
Enforcement and Reminders
Payees are responsible for ensuring, and if required, enforcing Payment of Charges for all sums due to them. ArthurPay may make contact with Payers on behalf of a Payee as part of our services, such as through reminder emails, but Payees agree that we are never responsible or liable for damages for any contact made with Payers for such purposes.
Whilst we take reasonable steps to ensure emails are delivered, ArthurPay is not responsible for the delivery of electronic statements, invoices of payment chasing or reminder correspondence. Each Payee is solely responsible for chasing for payments from Payers.
Payments received within a Virtual Account are usually available immediately at which point the sums will be available for Payout from the Payee’s Virtual Account into their bank account. In some limited circumstances, payments will need to be manually reconciled and in those circumstances, there may be a delay to any sums being available for payment and/or transfer. In these circumstances, Payers and Payees understand that they will have no claim or recourse against ArthurPay for any delays to Payments, Charges, or reversal of a Payment under any circumstances.
ArthurPay cannot guarantee the payments and Virtual Accounts will be reconciled on the same business day and is subject to access and disruptions from the online and opening banking systems operational from time to time, including those of the Payment Service and any bank. Payees are solely responsible for checking the accuracy of completed transactions and all reconciliations within the Platform. If there is any error in your balance shown (whether pending or confirmed), you must notify us without undue delay. We will follow our internal operating procedures to track and account for all Payments processed. The Partner requires notification without undue delay of any incorrect transaction. Where notification is provided the Partner will immediately refund the disputed amount and upon investigation apply for a refund if they conclude that it was not an incorrect transaction. Further details including details of the complaints procedure can be found at Part C section 9 and 15 of the Modulr Terms.
Payees and or their representatives are solely responsible for ensuring Payer deposits are properly and accurately registered with the chosen government-approved deposit protection scheme and complying with all statutory requirements relating to the protection of the deposit. ArthurPay cannot be held responsible for any losses, fines, convictions or other liabilities arising due to any exports or uploads to a government-approved deposit protection scheme. Payees are solely responsible for checking any transactions that take place within the software are correctly registered with the chosen government-approved deposit protection scheme. Payees agree to indemnify Arthur Online in full against any claims, losses, costs or expenses (including legal fees) that Arthur Online may incur as a result of a breach of the obligations of this clause.
PAYMENTS TO ARTHURPAY
Payee Onboarding Fees
Arthur charges a one-off onboarding fee to Payees for access to the Platform and establishment of a Virtual Account (Onboarding Fee). The amount of such Onboarding Fee shall be communicated to the Payee on the Platform or under separate commercial terms in place with the applicable Payee. Access to the Platform is conditional on payment of the Onboarding Fee. Payees agree that the Onboarding Fee may be credited to or debited from the Payee’s existing account with Arthur, or otherwise invoiced to them and payable within 7 days of receipt. Where the Payee fails to settle the invoice, Arthur reserves the right to suspend the Virtual Account until such time as the invoice and any costs including interest are settled in full.
Payees are required to pay a monthly subscription fee for access to and use of the Platform (the Subscription Fee). Payments for Subscription Fees will be collected monthly in advance from the Payee’s existing payment method as established with their existing account with Arthur, or collected directly from amounts collected but not yet withdrawn from the Payee’s Virtual Account, or collected through such other payment method as we introduce from time to time.
The amount of such fees will be calculated based on a per-unit rate (Unit Rate), which will be communicated within the Platform. Subscription Fees payable to ArthurPay are non-refundable and non-apportionable. All Subscription Fees are outlined clearly on the Platform and total costs will be made clear in advance. Unit Rates are charged in respect of units registered to the relevant Payer’s or Payee’s account within Arthur, irrespective of whether a particular Charge or set of Charges has been paid through Arthur Pay.
Subject to any separate fixed or minimum term agreements in place between Arthur and a Payee, a Payee may cancel its subscription at any time, and if doing so, will not be charged the following month’s subscription, and will lose access to the benefits of the subscription from the end of the relevant subscription period, including access to the Virtual Account. Payees are not entitled to any statutory cooling-off period with ArthurPay.
Changes to Subscription Fees
We may adjust the Unit Rate from time to time, although save as set out below, once subscribed, your Unit Rate will remain the same as the amounts you originally agreed to. If we are raising Unit Rates for all Payees, then you will have a clear opportunity to cancel before being upgraded.
ArthurPay shall be entitled to adopt annual increases to the Unit Rate (which shall result in increased Subscription Fees) based upon a fixed percentage over inflation rate or another nationally recognised pricing index determined by ArthurPay. Payees shall receive advanced notice each year of any such annual price increases.
At all other times and in all other cases, ArthurPay reserves the right to increase pricing or otherwise amend pricing structures for the use of the Platform at any time, save that outside of annual increases, where the increase in pricing will affect the Payee, the Payee will be given at least 6 weeks written notice provided to the email address listed for invoicing purposes.
All payments (unless stated otherwise on the Platform) will be made using the Payment Service.
Payees and Payers must be legally authorised to make payments with your selected payment method. Where you believe an unauthorised payment has been made, please immediately contact your bank or other relevant authority and report this (although we cannot guarantee that your bank or other relevant authority will investigate). We will not deal with reports of unauthorised payments directly.
Our Platform is built on the trust and ethical practices of our Payees and Payers. All Onboarding Fee and Subscription Fee sums accrue as contractual debts. Where Onboarding Fees, Subscription Fees or any other amounts due are overdue for 30 days we reserve the right to claim interest, compensation, and reasonable costs under the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998, and it is agreed that the term implied by that Act shall apply after any judgement as well as before. Any reference to the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998 is also a reference to any amendment, modification or re-enactment of it. If for any reason the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998 does not apply interest shall be payable on overdue amounts at 8% over the Bank of England Base Rate from time to time.
Without prejudice to our right to claim costs under the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998, if for any reason any payment is not made when due we reserve the right to be paid on an indemnity basis any costs we incur in recovering any money due under this Agreement (and the costs of recovering such costs) including our administrative costs and any legal costs or debt collection agencies (Administrative Fee). Our administrative costs may include the cost of employing the staff concerned and the overheads attributable to them for the time spent. In calculating our administrative costs credit will be given for any compensation due under the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998.
ARTHURPAY VIRTUAL ACCOUNTS
We operate a system in conjunction with our Payment Service where funds may be collected into a Virtual Account and withdrawn to a Payee’s external bank account. ArthurPay is a trademark of Arthur, but is not a registered or regulated bank. We are not registered with the Prudential Regulation Authority or the Financial Conduct Authority to provide banking or e-money services.
CANCELLATIONS AND AMENDMENTS
Subscription Fees for Payees will accrue monthly and are not calculated on a pro-rata basis where cancellation notices are accepted. Any cancellation of ArthurPay will be subject to your contract with Arthur and the termination provisions therein (Arthur Contract). The Partner will retain transactional data for 6 years from the date of the transaction. The Partner is the Data Controller and as such will be the party to contact should any data need to be retrieved within the 6 years specified. All sums accrued within your Virtual Account should be withdrawn to the Payee’s Nominated Account promptly.
All sums accruing and owed to ArthurPay up to the point of cancellation or deletion will remain outstanding.
You understand that you will need to request cancellation of the subscription at least three days before the start of the next monthly billing cycle in order to avoid auto-renewal for the following month. Please note that if you cancel your subscription, we reserve the right to charge you an Onboarding Fee again if you want to return to ArthurPay in future.
If you do remove your account with ArthurPay your existing account with Arthur will not be affected. However, if you cancel your account with Arthur you will no longer be eligible for ArthurPay.
As a Payee, if you wish to terminate your account with ArthurPay, you can do so at any time by deleting your account, although please remember that you will not be refunded for payments already made if you choose to do so, and you will no longer have access to your Virtual Account, including amounts which have accrued but not yet withdrawn.
In the event of you canceling your subscription with ArthurPay, your Virtual Account is not transferable and you are solely responsible for arranging the transfer and cancellation of any standing order and other payments to the Virtual Account. At the end of your subscription period, ArthurPay will close your Virtual Account, and any payments sent to the account and not yet withdrawn via a Payout will be returned to the Payer’s Nominated bank account. Where details of a Nominated bank account are not available Modulr’s Customer Services will need to be contacted. The funds will be available to recover for a 6-year period only.
We may from time to time provide certain promotional codes to Payers and Payees, for example as one-off promotions or as part of a loyalty program. You agree that you will use promotional codes only in accordance with these Terms, or any additional terms we put in place for the relevant promotional codes.
ArthurPay reserves the right to withhold or deduct credits or other features or benefits obtained through the use of a promotional code by you or any other User if we believe that the use or redemption of a promotional code was in error, fraudulent, illegal, or in violation of the terms of the promotional code or of these Terms.

We are under a legal duty to provide a Platform that is in conformity with these Terms and have set out a summary of your key legal rights in relation to the Platform. Nothing in these Terms will affect your legal rights.
Summary of key legal rights:
- the Platform must be as described, fit for purpose and of a satisfactory quality;
- if the Platform is faulty, you’re entitled to a repair or replacement; and
- if the fault cannot be fixed, or if it hasn’t been fixed within a reasonable time (e.g. one month), you can get some or all of your money back for subscriptions on a pro rata basis for the relevant time period.
OUR RESPONSIBILITY FOR LOSS OR DAMAGE SUFFERED BY YOU
We do not exclude or limit our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors and for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation. Please note however that actions of Payers and Payees outside of our reasonable control will not be attributable to our negligence, including in respect of private rental or other arrangements between them. In all other cases, we disclaim all implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for purpose, and will only be liable up to a maximum of amounts paid by you to us in the preceding 12 months.
We provide the Platform for the purposes outlined in these Terms. You agree not to use any of them for any purpose not expressed or implied by these Terms, and we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity, or any indirect or consequential loss arising out of or in connection with these Terms.
Except as set out in the paragraphs above, you accept and agree we will not be liable for any harmful effect that accessing the Platform may have on you, and you agree that you access the Platform at your own personal and commercial risk.
COMMUNICATIONS BETWEEN US

Other than to provide the services provided within our Platform, we will only contact you if we make any relevant updates or changes to our services, or where you have signed up for marketing communications. You may opt out of marketing communications at any time via your settings within the Platform.
The Platform may use pop-up notifications, unless you disable them. Please note though that it is not possible to disable service information or error alerts.
OTHER IMPORTANT TERMS
This section provides all of the extra terms that we have to tell you about.
We may transfer our rights and obligations under these Terms to another organisation, but this will not affect your rights or our obligations under these Terms. You may not assign or transfer any rights you may have under these Terms without our prior written approval, given at our absolute discretion.
None of the rights or obligations under these Terms are enforceable under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 by a person who is not a party to these Terms.
Under these Terms, you are granted a licence only in respect of our Platform. Any payments made to access it are in consideration for a licence to access our Platform. We retain ownership in the Platform at all times.
If we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that does not mean that we have waived our rights against you, and it does not mean that you are relieved of your obligations under these Terms. If we do waive a breach by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later breach by you.
No agency, partnership, joint venture, employer-employee or franchiser-franchisee relationship is intended or created by these Terms between ArthurPay and any Payer and Payee.
Each of the terms and conditions of these Terms operates separately. If any court or competent authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining terms and conditions will remain in full force and effect. Subject to any applicable law and consumer rights, these Terms (including those incorporated by reference in it) are the full agreement between us and Users.
These Terms are governed by English law and the courts of England have exclusive jurisdiction.
