Disclaimer Information for Vacation Rental Advertisers and Renters

The Legal Stuff...

NOTICE TO ALL RENTERS AND ADVERTISERS - You are responsible for conducting your own investigation regarding any and all claims made by prospective renters or vacation property owners or agents. You assume all liability for use of any information you find in any Vacation Rentals by Owner (OBX by Owner) publication. The operators of OBX by Owner assume no responsibility and in no way warrant the accuracy of the information contained in any of the pages published here. Not all OBX by Owner ads are created directly by the property owners, some OBX by Owner advertisers are acting as agents or managers for the owners.

Renters are aware that each property sets its own Refund/Cancellation Policies - OBX by Owner recommends that renters ask for and receive a written notice of the Refund/Cancellation policy from the advertiser and for added protection, we recommend the purchase of Trip Cancellation Insurance at your own expense (see AllTripInsurance.com or InsureMyTrip.com for details). OBX by Owner is not responsible for the refund of rental fees for any reason.

None of the information contained in any OBX by Owner web page is confirmed or warranted by any party. Confirmation of information published herein is the sole responsibility of the renting party. Qualification of all renters is the sole responsibility of the property owner or agent.

Property Owners - If the operators of OBX by Owner are unable to provide the promised level of service for any reason, including, but not limited to service outages, war, acts of God or negligence, neither OBX by Owner or its owners can be held liable for any costs beyond the prorated costs paid by the client for the services which were not provided.

NOTICE TO ADVERTISERS - Membership Cancellation Policy

OBX by Owner listings run on an annual basis. Due to the fact that the vast majority of the work involved in promoting vacation properties on the Internet occurs in the first few weeks (creating the ad, adding photos, submitting to search engines, etc.) OBX by Owner is unable to offer a refund on cancelled memberships.


If you wish to remove your property from the market, we can temporarily inactivate the OBX by Owner listing and reactivate it at a future date. Your OBX by Owner listing stays in force through the original term and the renewal date does not change (the renewal date will not be extended during the time that the property is off the market).


If you sell your property, you can transfer your OBX by Owner listing to a new owner for a one time $10 listing  transfer fee. No refund will be given, however, existing and new members are encouraged to come to a fair division of fees amongst themselves.


Note: OBX by Owner does not participate in or tolerate the sending of Unsolicited Commercial Email (SPAM) - OBX by Owner reserves the right to cancel (without refund) any member that  mentions OBX by Owner or any of its associated websites, URLs, or any associated OBX by Owner email address in any SPAM e-mail message or Usenet posting. OBX by Owner is the sole judge in determining what constitutes SPAM.


It is the goal of OBX by Owner to reduce the volume of SPAM delivered via the Rental Information and Availability Request (Inquiry) form. To that end, inquiries may be monitored and filtered by OBX by Owner prior to delivery to OBX by Owner members.  Inquiries may be read by OBX by Owner staff members.  Despite OBX by Owner filtering efforts, it is likely that some SPAM inquiries will be delivered anyway.  It is also likely that some non-SPAM inquiries may not be delivered as a result of OBX by Owner filtering efforts.

Rental inquires are delivered via Internet email and are not to be considered private. Internet e-mail delivery is not 100% reliable and OBX by Owner cannot be held responsible for undelivered inquiries or for missed income as a result of undelivered inquiries. OBX by Owner, at its own discretion, may supply to potential renters the direct e-mail address of OBX by Owner advertisers for the purpose of making a rental inquiry.


Vacation Rentals by Owner reserves the right to reject or edit any ad submitted at our sole discretion. Once material has been submitted, edited and posted on the OBX by Owner web site, it becomes the property of OBX by Owner and its affiliated sites and may not be copied from the OBX by Owner web site without written permission.


Advertisers are expected to provide acceptable content. All Ads are subject to cancellation at the sole discretion of OBX by Owner.
