RentWell has no responsibility or duty to review, approve or pre-screen any content posted on the Site by any third party (including property managers and owners), and RentWell is not responsible for such content. You understand that all property listings, lease agreements, rental terms, postings, messages, text, images, photos, files, video, and other information, materials or documents posted on the Site or transmitted through or in connection with the Services by property managers, owners, Users, advertisers, or others (the “Non-RentWell Content”) are the sole responsibility of the property managers, owners, Users, advertisers, or others from whom such Non-RentWell Content originated.

Rentwell does not guarantee, and you shall not hold RentWell responsible for, the non-rentwell content (including the accuracy or truth of such non-RentWell content), or the nature, safety, quality, condition, management of any rental units or properties on the site or the compliance with any laws, regulations or rules that may be applicable to such properties. You agree that you bear sole responsibility for evaluating, and are solely responsible for all risks associated with, the use of any non-RentWell content, and that under no circumstances will rentwell be liable for any non-RentWell content or for any damage or loss of any kind incurred as a result of the use of any non-RentWell content.

Certain aspects of the Services may be subject to additional requirements, guidelines, other technical and non-technical specifications, or other rules or policies of RentWell in addition to those set forth in these Terms (the “RentWell Requirements”).

Any such requirements are imposed solely by the property managers or owners; are the sole and exclusive responsibility of the property managers or owners imposing them; are wholly unrelated to any RentWell Requirements; and RentWell shall have no responsibility of any kind for such requirements imposed by property managers or owners.
From time to time, RentWell may amend this Agreement. An example of such an amendment is the inclusion of additional terms of usage that apply to either specific parts of the Site or the Site in its entirety. We will post any revised version of this Agreement on the Site and encourage you to refer to it on a regular basis.
