Renters and Potential Renters: Use of this Website as a renter or potential renter of property listed on the Website constitutes your acknowledgment and agreement that any information that you submit through the Website, whether by your participation in an offer board, or by submitting a rental application for a property listed on the Website or otherwise, will be subject to these Terms and Conditions and may be viewed and used by landlords, landlord representatives, brokers, property managers, sub-lessors (each a "Listing Party") to determine if they would like to extend an offer to rent any property listed through the Website.
In connection with any rental application by you, you may be asked to provide authorization to allow the applicable Listing Party to obtain a copy of your consumer credit report and score and/or the results of any background or criminal investigation to determine your suitability as a tenant. Should you elect to provide such authorization (which election shall be at your sole discretion), you understand and agree that the Listing Party may obtain and use such information for purposes of determining such suitability and may retain a copy of the same in its records, along with the other information you submit to such Listing Party, in each case subject to applicable law.
Listing Parties: Your use of this Website as a Listing Party constitutes your acknowledgment and agreement that such use and any rental offer made by you in connection with such use will be in compliance with these Terms and Conditions and all applicable local, state, and federal laws, regulations, and rules, including but without limitation, the Fair-Housing Act, anti-discrimination laws, any applicable rent control or rent stabilization laws and any contractual obligations by which the Listing Party is bound or any third party rights. You hereby warrant and represent that any property that you list on the Website fully complies with all applicable law and regulations, including without limitation, any applicable health, safety and fire laws and codes. You may only list a property for rent on this Website if you (i) own the property or are authorized by such owner to act as the managing agent or broker for the property or (ii) you have the full legal right and authority to sub-let the property without violation of the head lease. Further, you may only list a property on the Website for as long as the property remains available for rent and you agree to remove such listing from the Website as soon as reasonably practicable after the property ceases to be so available. RenterKit reserves the right, in its sole discretion and without liability to you, to limit the number of listings and the time that a property may be listed on the Website. In the event that you access a potential renter's consumer credit data or the results of any background investigation in connection with any application submitted in connection with the Website, you hereby represent and warrant that (i) you will have obtained any and all consents required by applicable law to access and use such information in connection with such evaluation, (ii) such information will be used by you on an internal basis only and only for such evaluation purposes and (iii) such information will not be disclosed to any third party.
General: RenterKit has no control over and does not guarantee the truth or accuracy of the information that users post on the Website or the conduct of our users on the Website. We do not endorse any persons who use or register for our Website, whether as a Listing Party or potential renter. RenterKit does not review, verify or evaluate, in any manner, the User Data, the Listing Parties, potential renters or the listed property. For avoidance of doubt and without limiting the foregoing, we do not conduct background, criminal or creditworthiness checks or review employment, payment or rental histories, nor do we verify the accuracy of the rental listing or the existence, safety or condition of the property.
