Rest Assured Policy

RatedApartment.com’s Rest Assured Guarantee Terms and Conditions

Welcome to the RatedApartments.com Rest Assured Policy (the “Policy”), which we offer customers, who pay online for a rental through RatedApartments.com i.e. if the transaction is processed through our website (“RatedApartments.com Payments”). Through the policy, we want our guests to rest assured that their stay is covered against any rental payment losses resulting out of material misrepresentations of the home, inability to access your rental, an internet fraud, or wrongful withholding of security deposits. This Policy is governed by these Terms and Conditions (the “Policy Terms”) and use of this Policy depends on your acceptance to comply with and be bound by the Policy Terms and the general RatedApartments.com Terms of Use, which can be found "here” and which are incorporated here by reference. The terms "we", "us", "our" and " RatedApartments.com" refer to RatedApartments.com, Inc., a United Kingdom Registered firm. The term "you" or “User” refers to the customer visiting RatedApartments.com (the “Website”) and paying to rent one of the rental properties (“Listings”) displayed on the Website via RatedApartments.com website’s secure booking facility. If you do not agree to the Policy Terms, you have no right to obtain reimbursement or avail yourself of this Policy.

Qualified People

Subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein, you qualify for reimbursement up to GBP 5,000 (the “Coverage Limit”) of losses under the Policy when you find and pay to rent a Listing advertised by an owner or manager on our Website (“Host”), provided: that you send money to the Host via RatedApartments.com Payments; have been unable to recover the funds from the Host, bank or credit card issuer; and complete a Statement of Rental Loss and provide other requested documentation within the time periods described below (“Covered Losses”)

For the avoidance of doubt, to qualify for the Policy, you must meet the requirements herein and pay our Hosts directly through our payment platform (“RatedApartments.com Payments”) and only funds paid by you through RatedApartments.com Payments are eligible to be considered as Covered Losses.

Covered Losses under this Policy

The Policy provides reimbursement to you for Covered Losses up to the Coverage Limit where funds paid by you through RatedApartments.com Payments are lost or misappropriated as a result of a Compromised Host, Inaccessible Listing, Misrepresented Listing, or Deposit Dispute, each as defined herein.

For purposes of this Policy and the definition of Covered Losses, the following definitions and conditions shall apply: • A “Compromised Host” shall mean a Host with a personal email address or RatedApartments.com account that has been compromised by a fraudulent individual acting as the true Host to induce payment from a traveller.

• An “Inaccessible Listing” is a Listing that has been rented by you through RatedApartments.com Payments where you are subsequently permanently unable to enter the Listing in accordance with the rental agreement between you and the Host as a result of intentional and wrongful conduct of the Host (including the Host is in bankruptcy or foreclosure or otherwise fraudulent).

• The term “Misrepresented Listing” shall mean a Listing with Material Differences or Defects to the as-described and advertised Listing that you rented, where: you are unable to rent the Listing as intended; you refuse to occupy the Listing; you document the material differences between the actual Listing and the Listing on RatedApartments.com; and you notify the Host and RatedApartments.com in the first six-hours of check-in.

• “Material Differences or Defects” shall be determined in RatedApartments.com’s sole discretion and, among other exceptions, shall not include the refusal to occupy the Listing based on the cleanliness of the Listing; minor differences in the location of the Listing to area attractions or maintenance issues with amenities or services.

• A “Deposit Dispute” shall mean a documented dispute between you and the Host as to the rightful withholding of a security deposit paid by you through RatedApartments.com Payments in connection with your rental of the Listing where RatedApartments.com considers in its sole and absolute discretion that the Host is in the wrong.
