Disclaimer of Liability
We do not examine the legality, accuracy or completeness of offers published on the platform or user content, and these do not represent the views of Hoomeo. We are not responsible for third-party offerings or content.
Leases are concluded exclusively between the user providing the accommodation (“host”) and the user renting the accommodation (“guest”). We are not a party to the leases concluded between the website’s users. However, Hoomeo is entitled to act as a representative for the provider with the authority to conclude agreements and to conclude agreements on his behalf. However, the provider and the tenants are themselves responsible for satisfying their own contractual obligations. In the event of default, this must be negotiated between the users. We save and will transmit the contact data of both parties for this purpose.
Hosts can apply their own terms and conditions to the accommodation they are renting that do not affect the General Terms and Conditions of Hoomeo.
Hosts and guests are responsible for their adherence to the provisions governed by public law, including municipal codes regarding property rental.
