When creating your account, you must provide true, accurate, current, and complete information. Each Sign-In Name and corresponding Password can be used by only one Registered User, and sharing your access credentials with others (especially if they are using your credentials to access our proprietary Content (as defined below)) is a material breach of this Agreement.

At The Property Couch, we are so confident that you will get value from our workshops that we give you an entire calendar year (365 days) to complete the course, do the work and put what you’re taught to the test.
We want you to give your best effort to apply all the fundamentals and strategies taught in the course and give yourself the best chance at success, which is why if we don’t hold you accountable to putting in the work, we’re doing you a disservice.
This course has been stress-tested to make sure that as long as you follow the modules and complete the action items for each lesson, you will get results.
Which is why when you enroll in any of our courses as a student, you get a “365-Day Guarantee.” The guarantee states that if you enroll in one of our courses, watch all the video lessons, complete all of the required work and action items, and still don’t see results within the first year (365 days), we will provide a full refund.
Our 365-Day Guarantee is governed by the following terms.
In order to qualify for a refund, you must have completed the course, and email us within the first year from your enrolment date, including proof that you have completed the course.
If you haven’t completed the course, then you won’t be eligible for the guarantee. As course organisers, we have access to see the percentage of completion at the backend and will provide the screenshot to you as proof of your completion. We’ll ask what didn’t work for you (so we can learn and improve).
For All Courses:
The work that you need to submit with your request for a refund includes ALL of the following items.
- Requirement 1: Complete the course
- Requirement 2: Tell us why this course was not a good fit for you and your business needs. What did you expect that you did not get once inside the program?
Here’s how our guarantee DOES NOT apply:
- You enroll, never complete the course, and email us within a year asking for a refund.
The Property Couch Courses Payment Cancellation Policy
A Purchaser who enrolls may not cancel the contract under any circumstances outside the “365-Day Guarantee” period. Upon enrollment, the Purchaser will be responsible for the balance of sale owing and must pay all further installments as agreed and on time. Should Purchaser fail to make any payment as and when due, we reserve all our rights against Purchaser for failure to make installment payments on time, including, but not limited to, mandating a collection agency or attorney to obtain payment from Purchaser, which may adversely affect the Purchaser’s credit rating. Purchaser must reimburse us for all reasonable fees (including legal and collection agency fees) incurred in collecting the balance of sale and is not eligible for the “365-Day Guarantee.”
We will NOT provide refunds more than 365 days following the date of purchase. After day 365, all payments are non-refundable and you are responsible for full payment of the fees for the program regardless of whether you complete the program.
After you submit your materials, all refunds are within the Company’s sole discretion as to whether to grant or deny the refund request.
Upon determining that you are entitled to a refund pursuant to this policy, the Company will promptly issue an instruction to its payment processor to issue the refund. The Company does not control its payment processor and will not be able to expedite any refunds.
