Homeowner and Property Manager Agreement
Rentini can be viewed as a venue for Homeowners and Managers to advertise their rental properties through on-site listings and websites powered by Rentini. Rentini enables travelers to connect directly with custodians of a property and to conduct business directly. Rentini secures Homeowner/Managers property details and contact information for the purpose of facilitating a transaction. Transactions done through Rentini LLC are bound by the agreement made between the Homeowner/Manager and the Guest. This includes the Cancellation policy and House Rules and any other information contained on the listing or website powered by Rentini. Homeowners/Managers are responsible for the accuracy of all information provided. Rentini is not a party to any agreements entered into between Homeowners and Managers renting out their homes and guests of said homes. Rentini has no control over personal behavior. Transactions must be conducted in accordance to local laws.
Owners and Managers have the choice of selecting one of four different cancellation policies for their listing, spanning from "Lenient" to "Very Strict". Homeowners and Managers can further stipulate additional rules in the "House Rules" section. Cancellations made by guests are subject to these policies. Homeowner cancellations that result in the forfeiture of payment will be refunded entirely to the guest. House Rules is a designated space to stipulate various rules related to the accommodation.
Financial Terms for Homeowners and Managers
Currently there is no cost for listing property or use of Rentini. Rentini earns money only upon transaction completed through Rentini.com. Any transaction done off Rentini is treated as a separate service. Rentini is not responsible for deals done off-site. Fees during a transaction include a 1% service fee on the total cost of the transaction and a flat $5 USD reservation fee. Rentini does not charge a Guest fee. The credit card processors charge all merchants credit card transaction fees in the range of 2.6% - 3.5%. The credit card processors' and Rentini's fees will be deducted from the total amount of the transaction and the remainder is sent to the Homeowner/Manager as rental income.
Financial Terms for Guest Transactions
Currently Rentini does not charge Guests a fee for use of Rentini. Homeowners and Managers are responsible for honoring contracts made with Guests through Rentini. Guests agree to be bound by the agreement required to enter into a transaction with a Homeowner/Manager through Rentini. Homeowners/Managers agree to perform obligations spelled out in the agreement and to release Rentini from liability related to the agreement. By entering into an agreement and confirming the agreement with a minimum payment, the Guest agrees to pay the total amount of the transaction including any refundable Damage Deposit included in the transaction. Rentini reserves the right to seek a pre-authorization of your credit card relating to the cost of the transaction. Once you as a Guest have a confirmed reservation, payment will be forwarded to the Homeowner/Manager subject to terms under Rentini. Note that any part of Guest's credit card payment that goes towards the bank fee is outside of Rentini's control. Rentini is not liable for this fee. When paying for a reservation, you as a Guest will be required to provide financial details and personal contact details in association with your payment and reservation. Rentini doesn't collect or store financial information to facilitate a credit card payment. During credit card processing such information is directly transferred to a certified credit card processing gateway where it is used to authorize payment approved by the credit card holder.
Homeowners/Managers may choose to include a refundable Damage Deposit. If a Damage Deposit is included on a listing, Rentini will attempt to obtain pre-authorization of Guests credit card relating to this charge and give assurances to the Homeowner/Manager that can be honored in a timely fashion. In the event a dispute arises, Rentini will make attempt to facilitate an understanding to help both parties resolve any differences amicably. Any issues arising from or related to the Damage Deposit are ultimately in the purview of the bank. Rentini disclaims all liability related to the Damage Deposit.
