1. The Site is a Venue and LSLLC is not a party to any rental or other agreement between users and homeowners. This is true even if the Site allows you to book a rental or provides other ancillary products or services, as the Site may facilitate booking a rental or other tools, services or products, but we are not a party to any rental or other agreement between users and home owners.

We urge all users to be responsible about their use of this Site and any transaction entered into as a result of either listing a property or renting a property. We do not own, nor can we enter into a contract for any vacation rental property listed on a Site.

We also may offer online booking or other tools or services to allow users to communicate with each other and enter into rental agreements or other transactions.

Any part of an actual or potential transaction between a user and a home owner, including the quality, condition, safety or legality of the properties advertised, the truth or accuracy of the listings (including the content thereof or any review relating to any property), the ability of owners to rent a vacation property or the ability of users to contract for properties are solely the responsibility of each user.
