NO UNLAWFUL OR PROHIBITED USE

Hosts must understand how the laws work in their respective cities. Some jurisdictions/provinces/cities have laws that restrict their ability to host paying guests for short periods of time. These laws are often part of a particular zoning or administrative code. In many locales, hosts must register, get a permit, or obtain a license before listing a property or accepting guests. Certain types of short-term bookings may be prohibited altogether. These laws vary, and are enforced differently between local governments. Penalties may include fines or other enforcement. These local laws should be reviewed and followed by hosts before listing a property on RentCostaRica.com
MODIFICATION OF THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS
RentCostaRica.com reserves the right to change the terms, conditions, and notices under which this web site is presented.
This agreement is governed by the laws of the Province of Ontario, Canada. Use of this web site is not permitted in any jurisdiction that does not give effect to all aspects of these terms and conditions, including, without limitation, this paragraph. You agree that no joint venture, employment, partnership, or agency relationship exists between you and RentCostaRica.com as a result of this agreement or use of this web site. RentCostaRica.com’s performance of this agreement is subject to existing laws and legal process, and nothing contained in this agreement is in deprecation of RentCostaRica.com's right to comply with law enforcement requests or requirements relating to your application of this web site or information provided to or gathered by RentCostaRica.com with respect to such use.

A printed version of this agreement and of any notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to this agreement to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form.

USE OF ‘PROPERTY SEARCH’ SERVICE
The ‘Property Search' service on this web site is provided solely to assist prospective renters in determining the possible availability of vacation homes and to potentially make legitimate reservations or otherwise transact business with the owners or managers of vacation homes, and for no other uses.
This web site is only a platform that allows Hosts to create listings of their available property(s) for rental, and for Users to find out about said listed properties and for Guests and Hosts to interact and finalize rental transactions, and thus RentCostaRica.com itself is not a party to any rental transaction and disclaims all liability arising from or related to any such transactions to the fullest extent permitted by law.
RentCostaRica.com’s role is to solely provide and facilitate the availability of the Site and Service for Users and to provide specific services related thereto. We do not purchase, buy-in, sell, own, provide, furnish, rent, sublet, control or manage any accommodation listed on our Site, unless requested specifically by the Host(s). RentCostaRica.com acts as a platform to allow registered Hosts to themselves offer for rent a specific rental space to Guests. Hosts may be either owners of any such holiday rental properties listed on the Site or are persons, for example proficient property managers, who are rightfully authorized to facilitate or enter into rental transactions of such properties direct with Guests. We are therefore not a party to the actual rental transaction concluded between Hosts and Guests. Our responsibility in the provision of the Site and/or Service when such transaction is concluded shall be to forward contact details to both Hosts and Guests. Accordingly, the legal contract for the supply of accommodation and rental transactions is between Hosts and Guests, being a license to occupy the Host's accommodation during the agreed period, but should not be, or anticipated to be, a tenancy or lease or grant of exclusive ownership of such accommodation. Rental transactions in respect thereof are only binding among Hosts and Guests, who are both solely and entirely responsible for their performance and RentCostaRica.com disclaims all liability arising from, or in connection with, such transactions.
RentCostaRica.com assumes no liability in regards of the condition of any listed property on our Site, nor does RentCostaRica.com make any recommendations or endorsements of listed properties or Users of the Site. We have no control over the conduct of Hosts, Guests and other Users of the Site and Service or of the condition or suitability of any listed properties. RentCostaRica.com can not accept any liability occurring from the listing and provision by Hosts of any accommodation or holiday rental space offered by Hosts and/or listed on our Site and/or for errors or omissions in the Host's descriptions. All bookings will be made at a Guest's own risk.
You affirm that you are at least 19 years of age and possess the legal authority to enter into this agreement and to use this web site in accordance with all terms and conditions herein. You agree to be financially responsible for all of your use of this web site (as well as for use of your account by others, including, without limitation, minors living with you). You also affirm that all information supplied by you or members of your household in using this web site are true and correct.
Separate terms and conditions will apply to your reservation of vacation homes. You agree to abide by the terms or conditions of purchase imposed by owners with whom you opt to rent from, including, but not limited to, payment of all amounts when due and compliance with all rules and restrictions regarding availability of fares, products, or services. You will be completely responsible for all charges, fees, duties, taxes, and assessments arising out of the use of this web site.
USE BY PROPERTY OWNERS AND MANAGERS
Although RentCostaRica.com provides you with a guest, RentCostaRica.com is not responsible for completing the booking or providing further services such as keys, housekeeping and directions. Property Owners-Managers are responsible for calling and/or emailing each guest within 24hrs of notification of an inquiry or booking. Data errors, while not expected, can occur at any time. Property Managers are responsible for verifying the accuracy of all the details provided for any guest referral or booking. Also, because everyone has varied expectations, the Property Manager is responsible for ensuring their property(s) meet all expectations including standards, size, availability, supplies, etc. RentCostaRica.com has a zero tolerance policy for any nefarious attempts made on any guests referred by RentCostaRica.com. Properties booked must be accepted as booked or all agreements will be cancelled and properties removed from RentCostaRica.com.
NOTICE OF LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
RentCostaRica.com assumes no liability for any loss or damage arising in connection with this referral or booking. RentCostaRica.com does not verify the details of any guest and their contact information for suitability or for safety of the occupancy or for any other purpose. By accepting guest referrals or bookings all parties expressly hereby limit the liability of damages of RentCostaRica.com to the cost of the ‘fee’.
IN NO EVENT WILL RENTCOSTARICA.COM BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGES RELATING TO A RENTAL TRANSACTION HEREUNDER SUCH AS, WITHOUT LIMITATION, PROPERTY DAMAGE, BODILY INJURY OR DEATH. IN NO EVENT WILL EITHER PARTY BE LIABLE TO THE OTHER FOR ANY PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES IN ANY ACTION ARISING FROM, OR RELATED TO, THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT, WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), INTENTIONAL CONDUCT OR OTHERWISE. INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES RELATING TO THE LOSS OF RENTALS OR PROFITS, INCOME OR GOODWILL, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER SUCH PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
