Here at Permit Forge, we grant you Temporary Usage Rights of the tours/images you purchase.

All of our images are copyrighted and are the intellectual property of Permit Forge. We license our images to you for temporary use but the ownership of the images remains with Permit Forge. The images you purchase are non-transferable and cannot be given away, bartered or sold. The client who pays for the images is the only one who has the rights to use the images. You cannot give those images to the builder, designer, remodeler, stager, etc. of the property photographed nor can you resell the images to anyone or split payment with anyone so they can use the images.



Here at Permit Forge, we grant Ongoing Usage Rights of the tours/images you purchase under our packages (Not For Sale) pricing structure. You get to enjoy our superb service for an initial twelve-month complimentary period for your web use to promote/market yourself and your business.  After the twelve-month period has been reached, there is a minimal ongoing usage right fee. All of our images are copyrighted and are the intellectual property of Permit Forge.

The images you purchase are non-transferable and cannot be given away, bartered or sold. The client who pays for the images is the only one who has the rights to use the images. You cannot give those images to the builder, designer, remodeler, stager, etc. of the property photographed nor can you resell the images to anyone or split payment with anyone so they can use the images.



We only want our clients to think warm and fuzzy thoughts about us and fee policies like this don't really do that - but we do have to pay our photographers when we reserve their time.


When you schedule services with us, you are reserving a valuable time slot that will not be available to others. When you cancel or reschedule your tour/photo shoot, we have to pay our photographers for that reserved time if it falls within the cancellation window outlined below. While everyone understands the purpose of cancellation fees, and agrees to the terms of service, nobody likes paying them. So we do our very best to keep you apprised about your upcoming appointment with a courtesy email a couple of days out - please use that reminder window to check in with your client/schedule/s.


As soon as you become aware that the property is not ready as scheduled, call the Permit Forge office at 404-610-1550 and/or email lee@Permit so we can notify the photographer and either remove it from the schedule or set up a new appointment time.


Cancellation Fees:

Monday through Saturday Appointments: If you cancel or reschedule the appointment after 4pm the day before the scheduled scan, then you agree to pay a reschedule fee of $50.


Unable to Shoot Fee: In the event that the photographer arrives to the property and cannot access it or it is not ready to photograph, then you agree to pay a fee of $75, plus any applicable trip charges.



If the weather threatens to prevent photography, it is the client's decision to continue or to reschedule. If the client decides to continue the photography session, please know that outside shots through drone usage may not be done if there are unfavorable weather conditions.



Permit Forge operates on a fee for service basis, all monies owed are payable upon the completion of the job, regardless of the sale of the home or other conditions. We accept cash or check, and direct debit for any hosting renewals. If you wish to provide/modify your account information, please call the Permit Forge office directly at 404-610-1550.


For services rendered by the Service Provider as required by this Agreement, the Client will provide compensation to the Service Provider of a fixed amount of _________________________________.


A 50% deposit of ___________________ will be payable by the Client.


The Client will be invoiced after work is complete, and is due within three (3) business days of receipt.


Service Provider will not be reimbursed for any expenses incurred in connection with providing the Services of the Agreement, other than any necessary cancellation/rescheduling fees.


Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, all monetary amounts referred to in this Agreement are in USD (US Dollars).



It is the client's responsibility to ensure that the property is ready for photography at the arranged time. Photographers reserve the right to terminate the photo shoot if the property is not ready and will cause them to be delayed to their next job. A cancellation after arrival fee is applicable in this situation.

Permit Forge doesn't handle any cleaning, dusting, or moving of furniture - liability reasons!


Permit Forge will, at the photographer's discretion, adjust window coverings or turn on or off lights as deemed necessary to better capture the scene(s) and move small items that may be distracting in the photo. The property must be clean and presentable at the scheduled time of the tour and/or photo shoot.


The homeowner shall ensure that there are no hazards to the photographer's safety.

Pets are to be contained or removed from the property for the photography session. Often a friendly dog will be aggressive when someone enters their domain that they don’t know. The photographer reserves the right to terminate the shoot if they feel threatened in any way. The photographer will do everything to ensure pets stay inside, but are not responsible for pets that escape the property during the photography session.


Homeowners should ensure children are supervised and out of the camera’s view. Photographers will do their best that all significant aspects of the property shall be included in the tour unless the condition of said aspect has a negative impact on the tour. This shall be left solely up to the photographer's discretion, unless specific aspect(s) of the property are specifically requested by the client/agent or the homeowner.


Once the property has been photographed, the service may not be canceled. The client/agent will be charged the full price of the package ordered. In addition, the Photographer will not retouch images in order to disguise any known defects and/or physical structures such as cracks in walls etc.  Same for drone use, we cannot retouch images to disguise driveways, powerlines, water towers, etc.


All products will be processed and sent to the client within two to three business days after the photo shoot unless otherwise arranged.  Drone imagery is subject to a separate time frame, and can be packaged to a customized time frame upon request.



Permit Forge keeps the copyright protection of all 3D Tour Products and Digital Imagery. Permit Forge reserves the right to use all images for promotion of Permit Forge but not a third party. The original Client/REALTOR® who paid for this service, has permission to use these images on any electronic or printed form of advertisement for the promotion of that property/business. Images cannot be altered after they are in your possession.


All Intellectual Property and related material that is developed or produced under this Agreement and the distribution thereof, will be the property of the Service Provider.  The Client is granted a non-exclusive limited-use license of this Intellectual Property.


Images cannot be sold or given away by one Client/REALTOR® to another Client/REALTOR®, who may take over an expired or withdrawn listing. Failure to pay for the images will result in a copyright infringement/violation. You will be asked to remove the image from any electronic or printed form of advertisement. Failure to stop using them will result in legal action.
