2. About the Website and TurboTenant’s Role
The Website provides users with content, functionality, and services related to managing, leasing, or renting real property, including vacancy marketing, rental applications, tenant screening, and payment processing. The Website may be used by tenants or prospective tenants (which are referred to herein as “tenants”) to, among other things, apply for a property, obtain renter’s insurance, and make or receive payments, and by landlords, property managers, or their agents (which are referred to herein as “landlords”) to, among other things, market properties, receive applications, screen applicants, and make or receive payments. We may facilitate transactions between users of the Website (referred to herein as “users”) and between users and others. However, we are not a party to any transactions, contracts, or agreements between users or between any user and any third party, even if the transaction is facilitated by the Website. We are not a landlord or property manager, nor are we a broker or agent for any user. Tenants may use the Website to obtain renter’s insurance, but we are not an insurer or an insurance agency. Further, while we may provide general information about the rights and obligations of landlords and tenants, as well as forms or template documents, including contracts such as lease agreements or rental agreements, we are not lawyers and do not provide legal advice of any kind. Users should consult legal counsel before entering into any contracts.

You agree to notify us immediately of any unauthorized access to or use of your username, password, or credentials, or any other breach of security.

6. Reliance on Information Posted
The content and information presented on or through the Website is made available solely for general informational purposes and to facilitate the interactive services offered through the Website. While we may take efforts to provide reliable and up to date information through the Website, we do not warrant the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of this information. Any reliance you place on such information is strictly at your own risk and we disclaim all liability and responsibility for any loss or damage resulting from such reliance.
Furthermore, while we take certain measures intended to assist users in avoiding potentially fraudulent or other illegal activity, including using third-party identity verification services to help ensure the identity of users before allowing them to use certain interactive features of the Website (such as requesting credit reports or using the electronic payments service), we cannot and do not guarantee the effectiveness of these measures or the accuracy of the identity of any user, even if we have indicated that such user’s identity has been verified. You assume the risk of transacting business with any other user or third-party through the Website and understand that an indication that a user’s identity has been verified means only that the user has provided sufficient information to satisfy the identity verification process of our third party identity verification vendors and that it is not a guarantee of the identity of such person.
The Website may include content provided by third parties, including materials provided by other users, bloggers and third-party licensors, syndicators, aggregators and/or reporting services. All statements and/or opinions expressed in these materials, and all articles and responses to questions and other content, other than the content clearly provided by us, are solely the opinions and the responsibility of the person or entity providing those materials and do not necessarily reflect our opinion. We are not responsible, or liable to you, for the content or accuracy of any materials provided by any third party.

9. Credit Reporting and Background Checks
We allow landlords to request a credit report and/or a background check report from prospective tenants through the Website. When a landlord makes such a request, we will give the prospective tenant the option to approve a single-use copy of his or her credit report and/or background check report and to share it with the requesting landlord. To provide this service, we may ask for your Social Security Number and other personally identifying information (such as information about other creditors you have had), which we will share with our third-party credit reporting agency for the purposes of preparing and sharing reports and verifying your identity, and which we will not store (except on a temporary basis) or use for any other purpose.
TurboTenant uses TransUnion, available at the address below, to obtain the screening reports that are shared with the landlord. TurboTenant does not make tenant screening decisions on behalf of landlords. Please refer to the prospective landlord’s website or other contact information for any criteria around which tenant screening decisions may be made. In the event of an adverse action to your application, you have the right to request a free copy of your consumer report from the credit reporting agency and dispute the accuracy of information appearing in the report.

If you are a tenant, you may opt into a service that includes having your TurboTenant-processed rental payments furnished to third-party consumer credit-reporting agencies (“Rent Reporting”). When opting into Rent Reporting in the tenant portal, you authorize TurboTenant to consistently report the rent payments you make through TurboTenant and rent payments that your landlord records as paid in their TurboTenant account to TransUnion, a credit reporting agency. TurboTenant is not responsible for how TransUnion may manage or use the information provided to them. TurboTenant does not control how any reported information may positively or negatively impact your credit score. TurboTenant cannot guarantee or predict the nature and amount of any credit score change, if any. TurboTenant hereby disclaims any representations and warranties concerning the effect of Rent Reporting on your credit score and report. Subject to applicable law, including the Fair Credit Reporting Act, TurboTenant shall not be liable for the impact of any Rent Reporting on your credit score, and you agree to indemnify and hold TurboTenant harmless against any claims concerning the effect of Rent Reporting on your credit report. You may opt out of Rent Reporting at any time in the tenant portal.
To provide the Rent Reporting service, we may securely transmit your relevant personal information to such credit reporting agencies, including your name, date of birth, address, payment amounts, and payment dates. Successful rent payments made by you while this feature is enabled may appear on credit reports provided by such agencies (whether or not requested through the Website) and may be taken into account by such credit reporting agencies in calculating your credit scores. This feature may be disabled by you at any time. While this feature is enabled, months for which no payment has been made via the Website may be reported to agencies as “no activity” (which is not an indication of failure to pay rent or of late payment). If you disable this feature during the term of a current lease, the entire payment history associated with that lease may be deleted from your credit reports. Please note that once submitted, we do not control the format of or for how long any rent payment history data will appear on your credit reports.
YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO DISPUTE AN ENTRY ON YOUR CREDIT REPORT DERIVED FROM RENT REPORTING BY NOTIFYING TURBOTENANT THROUGH MAIL OR EMAIL AT [email protected]; OR BY CONTACTING THE CREDIT BUREAU DIRECTLY. You must provide the following information as part of any dispute of information provided by TurboTenant Rent Reporting: (a) your name and contact information; (b) the address of the property for which we are reporting rent payments through Rent Reporting; and (c) a brief description of the disputed information. You hereby represent and warrant that all information submitted to the Website pursuant to any dispute is truthful and accurate.
If you are a landlord requesting a credit report or a background check report from a prospective tenant:
- You hereby accept and agree to be bound by the End User Terms available here.
- You represent that you are making such request, and will use such report, in compliance with applicable law and solely for the purpose of your own evaluation of the prospective tenant in connection with that tenant’s rental application and for no other purpose, and that that you have never been involved in, and promise that you will not become involved in, any credit fraud or other unethical business practice, and that you will immediately notify us and discontinue all use of the Website and any reports and other information obtained via the Website if you are ever involved in any such fraud or practice.
- You must familiarize yourself with the Fair Credit Reporting Act (“FCRA”) and any applicable state laws governing the use of consumer reports and comply with the FCRA and all such state laws.
- To the extent you rely in any way on the content of a report in taking an adverse action against an applicant (such as denying an application or requiring a co-signer or higher deposit), you may be required to furnish the applicant with an adverse action notice as required by the FCRA and applicable state law, even if the content of the report played only a small role in your decision.
If you are a tenant approving a credit report or background check report:
- You hereby accept and agree to be bound by the Consumer Agreement Terms available here.
- You hereby acknowledge and accept that by submitting a rental application, or approving a credit report or background check report, or any similar submission, you understand that such application and/or approval, as applicable, is not a guarantee of acceptance of your application or any other benefit and that you are solely entitled to submission of such request or report to the landlord noted on the application.
- You certify that you are approving such report for the purpose of furnishing the report to a prospective landlord in connection with your rental application and for no other purpose.
Credit-report and background check-report functionality is provided by our third-party credit reporting agency and may not be available for all users or at all times for various reasons, including reasons beyond our control or about which we may not have specific information. If you are unable to order, approve, share, request, or view a credit report or background check report using the Website, you should contact the person requesting or being asked to provide the report via the contact information provided through the Website to discuss the matter directly. You may also contact us at [email protected] for assistance.
We are not a credit bureau and do not control the content of credit reports (except to the limited extent described above with respect to opt-in rental payment reporting), including reports obtained through the Website. We are NOT responsible for the content of any credit report or background check report or any credit score, whether correct or incorrect. Credit reports and background check reports can contain information that is incorrect, incomplete, or not up to date, and reports are not a substitute for carefully reviewing and independently verifying all information contained in a rental application and interviewing a prospective tenant. If you believe that any information contained in your credit report or background check report is inaccurate or incomplete, you have the right to dispute it. To dispute the content of your credit report or background check report, please contact us via email at [email protected]. To dispute the content of your background check report, please contact the company providing the background check via email or telephone.
10. Payment Transactions
You may use the Website to make or receive payments. We are not a party to payment transactions between users (e.g. between tenants and landlords), we never take custody of money transferred between users, and we are not responsible for what recipients do with payments made through the Website.
Payments made from a checking account via the ACH network do not incur additional fees. Payments made by credit card or debit card will incur a convenience, processing, or similar fee, as applicable, that is added to the amount of the payment. These fees are paid by the party making the payment and there is no charge to receive payments via the Website.
During the time that you are making or receiving payments through the Website, you must ensure that all bank account, ACH information, and debit or credit card information of the payor and payee is up-to-date and accurate. Any authorization you provide to make repeating automatic payments using the Website will remain in effect until cancelled. Either party to any recurring payment transaction may cancel the recurring payment transaction at any time by contacting [email protected], or by submitting such cancellation though the party’s account on the Website where such option is available. However, if a current transaction is in process, such transaction will be finalized before we cancel the recurring payments.
We use Stripe to execute online payment transactions. By using this feature of the Website, you agree to be bound by the Stripe Connected Account Agreement, available at https://stripe.com/connect/account-terms. The Stripe Connected Account Agreement may be updated from time to time and you are encouraged to review the same before using the Website to make payments and from time to time thereafter.
By providing us with your banking, credit or debit card, or other payment information, you authorize us to use it and disclose it to Stripe or other payment gateway providers for the purpose of processing the payments you authorize through the Website. Payment gateway providers may also aggregate your information for other purposes, but only in ways that don’t identify you personally or disclose any personal information about you and may disclose your personal information when necessary to comply with the law.
If you make or attempt to make a payment through the Website and the payment does not complete for any reason or is rejected for insufficient funds (NSF), you may be assessed late fees or penalties and/or charged an NSF fee and you will be responsible for correcting the non-payment by initiating a new transaction through the Website or by making the payment in some other manner, paying any late fees or penalties assessed against you, and paying any NSF fee charged to you. We may require that you pay any late fees or penalties assessed and/or any NSF charged to you before you may initiate a new payment transaction through the Website. For avoidance of doubt, if any payment you initiate using the Website does not successfully complete, the intended payment recipient reserves the right to seek payment from you via the Website or otherwise.
If you receive any payment through the Website and the payment is the subject of a reversal, chargeback, or dispute, then you authorize us and our third-party payment providers to reverse or otherwise debit the funds at issue from your account. If we are unable to reverse or otherwise debit sufficient funds from your account, then you agree to pay such amounts to us promptly upon our request.
If TurboTenant receives a notice of dispute that a tenant or other payor files with the bank or credit card company that such person used to make a payment through the Website, you agree that we may reverse such charge on the basis of receiving the notice of dispute alone.
Any blocked or otherwise unpaid reversals, chargebacks, or dispute amounts are due and payable to TurboTenant (“Amounts Due”) and may be sent to a collections firm or similar debt collection agency. You agree to pay a finance charge on any Amounts Due to TurboTenant at the rate of 1.5% per month (18% annual percentage rate) if payment is not made within 30 days from the date of charge. You further agree, in the event that it becomes necessary to collect the Amounts Due by legal action, collections or otherwise, to pay all costs of collection including any and all reasonable attorney’s fees.
You acknowledge and agree to our right to investigate any and all transactions for fraud and you agree to cooperate with any reasonable requests made by us in an effort to investigate fraud. We reserve the right to seek reimbursement from you, and you will reimburse us, if we discover any fraudulent transaction, erroneous or duplicate transaction, or if we receive a chargeback or reversal from any payor for any reason with respect to any transaction to which you are a party. You agree that we have the right to obtain such reimbursement by charging your account, deducting amounts from future transactions, charging your credit card or any bank account associated with your account, or obtaining reimbursement from you by any other lawful means, including using a third party collection agency. Failure to pay any amounts required to be paid, including any reimbursements of a chargeback or a reversal of payment, is cause for termination of your account.
WE ARE NOT A COLLECTION AGENCY AND WE DO NOT GUARANTEE ANY PAYMENT BY ANY THIRD PARTY NOR DO WE ASSUME THE RISK OF NONPAYMENT BY ANY PARTY IN CONNECTION WITH ANY PAYMENT TRANSACTION MADE THROUGH THE WEBSITE.
11. Rental Listings
IF YOU POST A PROPERTY THROUGH THE WEBSITE OR ANY OF TURBOTENANT’S RENTAL MARKETING SERVICES, YOU HEREBY REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT YOU ARE THE PROPERTY OWNER FOR SUCH PROPERTY BEING POSTED, OR THE DULY AUTHORIZED AGENT OR REPRESENTATIVE OF SUCH PROPERTY OWNER.
TurboTenant does not post properties or listings submitted to the Website to third-party websites, and does not guarantee that by posting any property or listing on the Website, such property or listing will be posted to any third-party website, such as Facebook or Craigslist. TurboTenant is not affiliated with any such third-party listing websites.

Insurance products are sold exclusively through third party vendors. Please direct all insurance billing, coverage, and claims inquiries to such third-party vendors. All descriptions of coverage presented on the Website are summaries only. Please obtain and refer to full policy documents for details on coverage limits, conditions, and exclusions. We do not provide liability insurance protection for landlords or tenants, regardless of whether a user obtains insurance coverage through one of our third-party vendors. Users are solely responsible for obtaining insurance coverage sufficient to protect their interests.
14. Legal Information and Forms
The Website may provide you with general legal information and access to certain self-help, “fill in the blank” forms (the “forms“), including leases and other legally binding documents. All such information and forms are provided as-is and without any warranties, express or implied. In providing such information and forms you agree that we are not providing you with legal advice and we are not engaged in the practice of law. You understand that the information and forms may not be tailored to your specific needs and are not a substitute for legal advice from qualified counsel. Without limiting the foregoing, you acknowledge that the information and forms made available through the Website may not reflect recent developments in the law, may not be complete, and may not be accurate in or applicable to your jurisdiction. Because such information and forms are general in nature and may not pertain to your specific circumstances, you should not act or refrain from acting based solely on any such information or forms or without first obtaining advice from professional counsel qualified in the applicable subject matter and jurisdiction. You are advised to always verify the appropriateness of any form in light of your state and local laws, court decisions, and statutory changes, and to consult with your own legal counsel for advice and to ensure that the forms are properly used. If you have any questions about how to fill out or use any forms, it is important that you consult with your legal counsel. No user shall have any claim against us or any other party in connection with such user’s use of the forms. Users use the forms at their own risk and shall hold us harmless with respect thereto. Any disputes arising out of or related to any forms are solely between the parties that used such forms and must be resolved outside of the Website.
The forms are owned by us or our third-party vendors and are protected by copyright law. If you purchase any forms from us you are purchasing, and we grant to you, a limited, personal, non-exclusive, non-transferable license to use the form for your own personal internal business use. Except as otherwise provided and to the extent permitted under applicable law, you acknowledge and agree that you have no right to modify edit, copy, reproduce, create derivative works of, reverse engineer, alter, enhance or in any way exploit the forms in any manner, except for modifications in filling out the forms for your authorized use. You shall not remove any copyright notice from any form, and you may not sell, license, or redistribute the forms or any derivation thereof.
Certain features and functionality of the Website are made available to you at no charge and others are made available for a one-time fee, on a subscription basis, or under any other lawful pricing structure. In all instances, you are purchasing a license to access and use such features and functionality, and nothing is being sold to you. In addition, the license to use such features and functionality may not transfer across operating systems and/or different equipment (e.g., mobile devices, computers, etc.). We reserve the right at any time to change and/or increase the fees for access to portions of the Website, its features or functionality. All fees are earned by us as consideration for services performed when charged and are non-refundable.

IN NO EVENT WILL WE OR ANY OF OUR affiliates, licensors, VENDORS, OR service providers, OR ANY OF OURS OR their respective officers, directors, employees, contractors, agents, licensors, suppliers, OR successors and assigns (collectively, the “INDEMNIFIED Parties”) BE LIABLE FOR DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, UNDER ANY LEGAL THEORY, ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE, OR INABILITY TO USE, THE WEBSITE, ANY WEBSITES LINKED TO IT, ANY CONTENT ON THE WEBSITE OR SUCH OTHER WEBSITES, OR ANY SERVICES OR ITEMS OBTAINED THROUGH THE WEBSITE OR SUCH OTHER WEBSITES, INCLUDING ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, PERSONAL INJURY, PAIN AND SUFFERING, EMOTIONAL DISTRESS, LOSS OF REVENUE, LOSS OF PROFITS, LOSS OF BUSINESS OR ANTICIPATED SAVINGS, LOSS OF USE, LOSS OF GOODWILL, LOSS OF DATA, AND WHETHER CAUSED BY TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), BREACH OF CONTRACT OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF FORESEEABLE.

You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless the Indemnified Parties from and against any claims, liabilities, damages, judgments, awards, losses, costs, expenses, and fees (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) brought by, made against, or suffered or incurred by any Indemnified Party and arising out of or relating to your violation of the Terms or your use of the Website, including, but not limited to, any User Content you provide, your use of or reliance on the Website or any features, functionality or content thereof.
26. Governing Law and Jurisdiction.
The Terms are governed by and shall be construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Colorado without regard to its conflict of laws rules. Subject to Section 27, any legal proceedings against us that may arise out of, relate to, or be in any way connected with the Website or the Terms shall be brought exclusively in the state or federal courts located in the City and County of Denver, Colorado, and you waive any jurisdictional, venue, or inconvenient forum objections to such courts.
27. Dispute Resolution
We and you each agree to first attempt to contact each other with respect to any disputes and provide a written description of the problem, all relevant documents/information. and the proposed resolution. You agree to contact us with disputes by contacting us at [email protected] and we will attempt to contact you based on the contact information you have provided us.
If after 30 days you and we are unable to resolve any such dispute, then the dispute may only be submitted to arbitration consistent with this section. You understand that you would have had a right or opportunity to litigate such dispute through a court and to have a judge or jury decide the case, absent this provision and that you and we have chosen to have any disputes resolved through arbitration.
As such, any dispute between any Indemnified Party (including, to the full extent permitted by applicable law, third parties who are not signatories to this agreement) and you that is not resolved through negotiation, including any dispute as to the validity or applicability of this arbitration clause, shall be resolved by binding arbitration administered by the JAMS under its rules and procedures in effect when the claim is filed. The rules and procedures and other information, including information on fees, may be obtained from JAMS’ website (www.jamsadr.com) or by calling JAMS at 949-224-1810.
We and you are entering into this arbitration agreement in connection with a transaction involving interstate commerce. Accordingly, this arbitration agreement and any proceedings thereunder shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”), 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16. Any award by the arbitrator(s) may be entered as a judgment in any court having jurisdiction.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, either of us may bring qualifying claims in small claims court. Further, as set forth below, we each agree that any arbitration will be solely between you and the Indemnified Party, not as part of a class claim (i.e., not brought on behalf of or together with another individual’s claim). If for any reason any court or arbitrator holds that this restriction is unconscionable or unenforceable, then our agreement to arbitrate does not apply and the class-wide dispute must be brought in court.
28. NO CLASS ACTIONS
TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW, YOU AND WE EACH WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO PURSUE DISPUTES ON A CLASS-WIDE BASIS, TO EITHER JOIN A CLAIM WITH THE CLAIM OF ANY OTHER PERSON OR ENTITY OR TO ASSERT A CLAIM IN A REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY ON BEHALF OF ANYONE ELSE IN ANY LAWSUIT, ARBITRATION, OR OTHER PROCEEDING.
29. NO TRIAL BY JURY
TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW, WE EACH WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LAWSUIT, ARBITRATION, OR OTHER PROCEEDING.
30. Fair Housing Act
IF YOU ARE A LANDLORD OR ARE OTHERWISE SUBJECT TO THE FAIR HOUSING ACT, YOU ARE EXCLUSIVELY RESPONSIBLE FOR ADHERING TO THE FAIR HOUSING ACT (see http://www.justice.gov/crt/fair-housing-act-2) AS WELL AS ANY STATE OR LOCAL LAWS. WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO SEEK LEGAL COUNSEL REGARDING COMPLIANCE WITH SUCH LAWS. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHALL WE PROVIDE GUIDANCE REGARDING COMPLIANCE OR OTHERWISE ASSUME LIABILITY FOR FAIR HOUSING ACT OR OTHER HOUSING LEGAL COMPLIANCE.

No waiver by either party of any breach or default hereunder shall be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default. The section headings used herein are for convenience only and shall not be given any legal import.
Except where specifically stated otherwise, if any part of the Terms is unlawful or unenforceable for any reason, you and we both agree that only that part of the Terms shall be stricken and that the remaining provisions in the Terms shall not be affected. So, for example, if a provision in these terms is found to be unenforceable, we agree an arbitrator (or, if permitted, a court) shall only strike that provision and that the remaining provisions of the Terms shall remain in force.
The Terms constitute the entire agreement of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersede all previous written or oral agreements between us with respect to such subject matter.
You may not assign the Terms or assign any rights or delegate any obligations hereunder, in whole or in part, without our prior written consent. Any such purported assignment or delegation by you without the appropriate prior written consent will be null and void and of no force and effect. We may assign the Terms and any rights or delegate any obligations hereunder without your consent and without notice.
