If you wish to become a Site user (e.g., to post your property for rent or to express an interest in renting a property that is posted for rent), communicate with other Site users or otherwise access or use any services provided by or through the Site or RentalHomeDepot, you must read these Terms of Use and indicate your agreement to and acceptance of these Terms of Use before becoming a user, communicating with other users or otherwise accessing or using any services provided by or through the Site or RentalHomeDepot.

2. General Scope of Site and Services and Responsibilities of Users.
You expressly acknowledge and agree that RentalHomeDepot only provides a classified posting service for the posting of various properties for rent during in the DC Area (each such property, a "Posted Property" and collectively, the "Posted Properties"). RentalHomeDepot is not, nor shall it be deemed to be, a real estate broker, agent, advisor or other real estate professional. The Site and its contents are purely for informational purposes only. The Site is intended only as a classified posting service for persons or entities looking to rent out a Posted Property and for prospective tenants to view Posted Properties and express an interest in renting a Posted Property directly to the person or entity posting the Posted Property.

If you are a renter or prospective renter looking for a property to rent(a "Renting User"), you may view the postings of certain Posted Properties posted for rent on the Site. For a fee, a Renting User may express an interest in renting one or more Posted Properties. The number of Posted Properties for which you, as a Renting User, may express an interest will be limited and will depend on the level of fee you pay and the level of service that you subscribe to. Each time you express an interest in a Posted Property, whether or not that Posted Property actually exists or is available for rent, and whether or not your expression of interest is successfully transmitted, it will count against the total number of expressions of interest that you may be entitled to submit.

If you are a Renting User, it is your responsibility to verify the existence, condition, location, availability and all other aspects and characteristics of any Posted Property for which you express an interest. It is also your responsibility to verify the existence, identity, background (including, without limitation, criminal background) and all other aspects and characteristics of any person or entity posting a Posted Property for rent on the Site. IT IS ENTIRELY POSSIBLE THAT A POSTED PROPERTY IN WHICH YOU EXPRESS AN INTEREST DOES NOT EXIST OR IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR RENT, EVEN IF THE POSTING FOR SUCH PROPERTY INDICATES THAT THE PROPERTY EXISTS AND/OR IS AVAILABLE FOR RENT (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, AT THE TIME YOU EXPRESS AN INTEREST IN SUCH PROPERTY). IN NO EVENT DOES RENTALHOMEDEPOT GUARANTEE AT ANYTIME THAT ANY POSTED PROPERTY IN WHICH YOU EXPRESS AN INTEREST EXISTS OR IS AVAILABLE FOR RENT, EVEN IF THE POSTING FOR SUCH PROPERTY ON THE SITE INDICATES THAT THE PROPERTY EXISTS AND/OR IS AVAILABLE FOR RENT.

If you are a person or entity desiring to post a Posted Property for rent on the Site (a "Posting User") you may, for a fee, post your Posted Property on the Site. A separate fee will apply and must be paid for each individual property posted on the Site. The features associated with your posting will depend on the level of fee you pay and the level of posting service that you subscribe to.

If you are a Posting User, it is your responsibility to verify the existence, identity, financial status, creditworthiness, background (including, without limitation, criminal background) and all other aspects and characteristics of any Renting User who expresses an interest in your Posted Property or who may rent, or contract to rent, any Posted Property that you may post on the Site. IT IS ENTIRELY POSSIBLE THAT YOUR POSTING WILL NOT BE VIEWED BY ANYONE AND THAT YOUR POSTED PROPERTY WILL NOT BE RENTED. IN NO EVENT DOES RENTALHOMEDEPOT GUARANTEE THAT YOUR POSTED PROPERTY WILL BE SEEN OR VIEWED BY ANY RENTING USER, NOR DOES RENTALHOMEDEPOT GUARANTEE THAT YOU WILL BE CONTACTED BY ANY RENTING USERS OR THAT YOUR POSTED PROPERTY WILL BE RENTED.

IN NO EVENT HAS RENTALHOMEDEPOT VERIFIED ANY INFORMATION OR CONDUCTED ANY ASSESSMENT, DUE DILIGENCE, INSPECTION, SCREENING OR OTHER INVESTIGATION OF OR ON ANY POSTED PROPERTY, ANY RENTING USER OR ANY POSTING USER. THEREFORE, IF YOU POST A PROPERTY FOR RENT ON OR THROUGH THE SITE, IF YOU EXPRESS AN INTEREST IN A POSTED PROPERTY OR IF YOU RENT, OR CONTRACT TO RENT, A POSTED PROPERTY, YOU DO SO ENTIRELY AT YOUR OWN RISK AND WITH NO RECOURSE AGAINST RENTALHOMEDEPOT.

The rental of any Posted Property shall be strictly between the applicable Posting User and Renting User and each of the terms and conditions of such rental shall be determined solely between them. Unless otherwise expressly elected by RentalHomeDepot, in no event shall RentalHomeDepot be, or be deemed to be, a party to any contractual or other arrangement between a Posting User and a Renting User with respect to any Posted Property. If there is a dispute regarding the rental of any Posted Property, such dispute shall, unless otherwise elected by RentalHomeDepot, be solely between the applicable Posting User and Renting User and in no event shall RentalHomeDepot be involuntarily made a party to such dispute. Notwithstanding the foregoing, RentalHomeDepot reserves the right, but has no obligation, to monitor or become involved in any such dispute. You agree that RentalHomeDepot shall not be responsible or liable for any claims, losses or damages of any kind or nature incurring from or otherwise relating to the rental of any Posted Property. In addition, you hereby agree to release, indemnify and hold harmless RentalHomeDepot from and against any and all such claims, damages and losses.
