Disclaimer to the Renter:
Vacations By Owner (VBO) is designed to introduce property owners, or their agents, to potential renters using the most innovative marketing technologies available. VBO or its employees/owners do not warranty in any way the properties that are advertised on VBO. It is the renters' responsibility to investigate the information that they obtain from the site. The listings have been created from information submitted to VBO from the owner/agent/advertisers.
Further, VBO advises a renter to inquire about cancellation policies (see below). If you have a reserved a property for rental purposes, it cannot be rented to another party during that time period and therefore, you may be subject to the loss of your payments (or committed payments) because the owner of the property has reserved this time period for you or your party. VBO does not hold any funds or take any commissions between the renter and the owner and cannot be liable for any refunds for commitments made between renter and owner for any reason.
Disclaimer to the Owner:
As an owner you are responsible not to misrepresent your property to a renter. You are also responsible to follow all local ordinances and maintain a fiduciary responsibility to the renter for what you have advertised on vacationsbyowner.com. Vacations by Owner or its employees take no responsibility for any misrepresentations that you have made using our advertising facilities.
VBO encourages the property owner to investigate its renters, as it assumes no responsibility for the qualification of the renters that are obtained from the listings advertised on this site.Cancellation Policies:
We have outlined a possible scenario(s) for cancellation policies for our owners and renters to review. For the cancellation policy agreed upon (between renter and owner), we encourage you to receive a cancellation policy from the owner stating the stipulations.
As a renter you may be required to pay a deposit (usually a percentage of the rental) upon making the reservation (or shortly thereafter) to reserve the property. You may be subject to loosing the deposit or the entire amount of funds committed to the reservation depending on the time limits that the cancellation policy stipulates. As a renter it is considered good policy to advise the owner as soon as you may be aware that you cannot occupy the property for the time that you have reserved.
You may also choose to purchase trip insurance, which can be obtained from insuremytrip.com or another facility of your choice.
