UNDERSTANDING YOUR RISK
The Purpose of the Website and the Services is to connect You with Service Providers. Homeowners Hub helps facilitate the communication and payment process between You and Service Providers so that You can request and pay a Service Provider to perform Home Services. The Service Providers are independent contractors who are not employed, retained, endorsed or sponsored by or otherwise under the control with Homeowners Hub. Homeowners Hub is not responsible for and provides no representations, assurance, guarantees or warranties with respect to the Service Providers and the Home Services including, without limitation, the accuracy of any estimate, the suitability, quality, ability, timeliness, performance, conduct, acts, omissions and availability of the Service Providers and the Home Services. You understand that the listing of a Service Provider on the Website does not constitute an express or implied endorsement of that Service Provider. Your use of a Service Provider is entirely at Your own risk. While Homeowners Hub takes commercially reasonable steps to ensure that the Service Providers possess relevant licenses and general liability and workers compensation insurance, We do not warrant or guarantee that a Service Provider’s license or insurance is current at the time that You retain the Service Provider or that Service Provider’s license or insurance is appropriate for the Home Service for which the Service Provider is being retained. You are solely responsible for determining whether the Service Provider has (i) current licensing required to perform the Home Service and (ii) current and appropriate insurance. YOU EXPRESSLY WAIVE AND RELEASE HOMEOWNERS HUB FROM ANY AND ALL LIABILITY, CLAIMS, CAUSES OF ACTION, OR DAMAGES ARISING IN ANY WAY FROM OUR INTRODUCTION TO AND YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE PROVIDERS AND THE HOME SERVICES.
REGISTRATION AND YOUR INFORMATION
YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES
You will be able to use the Services once You create an account. You can retain a Service Provider to perform the Home Services by requesting your service on the Website. All payments from You to the Service Provider shall be made through Homeowners Hub. Once the Home Services have been completed, we will charge the final cost of the Home Services to the credit card on file with Your account and send you a detailed invoice for the Home Services completed.
You agree to cooperate in good faith with us and the Service Provider to resolve any complaints or disputes between you and the Service Provider regarding the Home Services. If You are unable to resolve any controversy or dispute between You and a Service Provider, You agree that such controversies and disputes shall be submitted to final and binding arbitration before the American Arbitration Association. The arbitration will be held in Essex County, New Jersey. All decisions of the arbitrator are final and such dispute resolution is Your sole and exclusive remedy in regards to complaints or claims against a Service Provider for the Home Services.
We charge fees for the use of certain features or aspects of the Services (“Premium Services”). Fees for the Premium Services are subject to change at any time. You agree that we may charge the fees for such Premium Services to the credit card associated with Your account.
