The Host Assurance Terms apply in addition to EzyStayz’ Terms of Service (“EzyStayz Terms”) and the Payments Terms of Service ("Payments Terms").

EzyStayz agrees to pay you, as a Host, to repair or replace your Covered Property (as defined below) if it is damaged or destroyed as a result of a Covered Loss (as defined below) and subject to the limitations, exclusions and conditions set out in the Host Assurance Terms.

Please be aware that you MUST comply with all of the requirements and conditions set out in these Host Assurance Terms in order to be eligible to receive any payments for Covered Losses. Please carefully review the definitions of “Covered Accommodation,” “Covered Losses,” “Covered Property” and “Excluded Property” below so that you can identify and adequately protect property which is not covered by the EzysSayz Host Assurance.

As a host, you must agree to communicate with the Responsible Guest (as defined below) as soon as possible after you discover any physical loss or damage to your Covered Property. You must notify EzyStayz, as well as the Responsible Guest, about your complaint and attempt to resolve the loss or damage with the Responsible Guest within either (i) fourteen (14) days of the check-out date, or (ii) before your next guest checks in, whichever comes first.

If you determine that the Covered Property is unfit for reprocessing or sale, the property will not be sold or disposed of, except by you or with your consent. Proceeds from the sale or other disposition of such Covered Property will go to (i) EzyStayz’ insurer at the time of the Covered Loss settlement, or (ii) you, if the sale or disposition proceeds are received prior to the Covered Loss settlement and any proceeds will reduce the amount of the Covered Loss payable to you.

V. Disposition of Host Payment Requests

EzyStayz Host Assurance Payment Request Form

EzyStayz will complete its processing of any EzyStayz Host Assurance Payment Request Form that you file within a reasonable period following the date you have (a) completed and filed an EzyStayz Host Assurance Payment Request Form, and (b) provided EzyStayz with all information and materials that are required to comply with the conditions set forth in “Conditions to the EzyStayz Host Assurance” above. EzyStayz will make all reasonable efforts to complete processing of your EzyStayz Host Assurance Payment Request Form within three (3) months after our receipt of such documents and information. If you receive an Approved Payment Request (as defined below), then as a condition of payment under the EzyStayz Host Assurance, you will be required to complete the “EzyStayz Host Assurance Approved Payment Request Agreement”. In this you agree: 

to assign to EzyStayz or its insurer any rights and remedies you may have to recover amounts paid to you with respect to an Approved Payment Request (defined below) from the Responsible Guest or from an Invitee or from any other party that is financially responsible for the Approved Payment Request;

to reasonably cooperate with us, including (if requested) appearing as a witness in any court, arbitration or like proceeding, if we seek to recover the amount paid to you as part of an Approved Payment Request from the Responsible Guest or from an Invitee or from any other party;

to release and hold harmless EzyStayz and its insurer and all officers, directors, employees, contractors and agents of EzyStayz from any further liability or obligations with respect to the facts and circumstances of the matters and incident set forth in the EzyStayz Host Assurance Payment Request Form. 

to treat (if requested) as “confidential information” the amount of any payment made under the EzyStayz Host Assurance; and

to refund to us any amounts in excess of the Covered Loss in the Approved Payment Request due to a systems or payment processing error.

 The processing period duration of any EzyStayz Host Assurance Payment Request Form that you file will depend on factors that include, but are not limited to: (i) the amount of payment that you are requesting for the Covered Loss; (ii) the location of the Covered Accommodation; (iii) the nature of the Covered Property and the nature of the Covered Losses; (iv) the type of documentation and information that you provide EzyStayz regarding the Covered Losses and its completion; and (v) the number of EzyStayz Host Assurance Payment Request Forms that are currently being processed for other Hosts.

Approved Payment Request

If you have filed an EzyStayz Host Assurance Payment Request Form and such a payment request is approved in whole or in part for a Covered Loss (an “Approved Payment Request”), you will be paid the amount of the Covered Loss as calculated by EzyStayz or its designees. The process for calculating Covered Losses is described under “Determination of the Amount of the Covered Loss” below. You will be notified by EzyStayz and (as a condition of payment) you will be required to deliver to EzyStayz an Approved Payment Request Agreement. 

EzyStayz may use third party service providers to assist in the processing of the EzyStayz Host Assurance Payment Request Forms and in the investigation and adjustment of payment requests.

For an Approved Payment Request that involves Covered Losses for Covered Property that is owned by a party other than you, EzyStayz reserves the right to pay all or a portion of the amount covered in such Approved Payment Request either to you or directly to the owner of the Covered Property. If an EzyStayz Host Assurance payment is made directly to the owner of such Covered Property, then you agree that such payment will be treated as being paid to you directly and you will be solely responsible for collecting from the owner of such Covered Property any portion of the payment to which you believe you are legally entitled.

Determination of the Amount of the Covered Loss

The amount of Covered Losses will be computed as of the date of loss, at the location of the loss, and subject to the following: 

On exposed films, records, manuscripts, drawings, and Electronic Media, the value blank plus the cost of copying information from back-up or from originals of a previous generation. Costs of research, engineering, or restoring or recreating lost information or Electronic Data will not be paid.

On Fine Arts articles, the lesser of (i) the reasonable and necessary cost to repair or restore such property to the physical condition that existed on the date of loss; (ii) the cost to replace the article; and (iii) the current appraised value. If the Fine Arts article is part of a pair or set, you will not be paid (1) for the cost of replacing any undamaged or remaining items that form part of such pair or set, (2) more than the proportion that the loss or damaged item bears to the insured value of such pair or set, or (3) the cost of replacing or repairing any undamaged parts of the Fine Arts articles which form part of a pair, set or suite or part of a common design or function when the loss or damage is restricted to a clearly identifiable area or to a specific part.

For all Covered Property (other than that described in paragraphs 1 and 2 above), the loss amount will be the lesser of (i) the Actual Cash Value; (ii) the cost to repair such damaged Covered Property; (iii) the cost to rebuild or replace such Covered Property on the same site with new materials of like size, kind and quality; (iv) the cost to rebuild, repair, or replace on the same or another site, but not to exceed the size and operating capacity that existed on the date of the Covered Loss; or (v) the cost to replace unrepairable electrical or mechanical equipment, including computer equipment and Electronic Media, with equipment that is the most functionally equivalent to that damaged or destroyed, even if such equipment has technological advantages and/or represents an improvement in function and/or forms part of a program of system enhancement. 

Any amount of any Covered Losses payable under the EzyStayz Host Assurance will be reduced by the amount already paid to you or for your benefit by a Responsible Guest, Invitee or other source (such as an insurer) for the same Covered Loss.

Covered Losses will be paid in the currency of Australia unless (at EzyStayz’ sole discretion) EzyStayz elects to pay losses in a different currency. If currency conversions are required, we use a base exchange rate using data from one or more third parties.

VI. Acknowledgments and Agreements by the Host

You acknowledge and agree that:

The EzyStayz Host Assurance is dependent upon you pursuing any rights and remedies you may have to recover amounts paid by EzyStayz to you in regards to an Approved Payment Request from the Responsible Guest or from an Invitee or any other party that is financially responsible for the Approved Payment Request.

EzyStayz’ Host Assurance Terms are not intended to constitute an offer to insure, do not constitute insurance or an insurance contract.

The benefits provided under these Host Assurance Terms are not assignable or transferable by you, including (without limitation) any transfer or assignment by operation of law or in connection with your divorce or death.

EzyStayz and/or its insurer reserve the right to independently investigate at our sole discretion and expense the facts and circumstances of a payment request set forth in any EzyStayz Host Assurance Payment Request Form.

You acknowledge and agree that if you make a claim under this Host Assurance, you give EzyStayz consent to review all communications between you and the allegedly Responsible Guest via the EzyStayz Platform. 

At any time, Ezyatayz reserves the right to offset or deduct from the amounts payable to you under these Host Assurance Terms or to subsequently collect from any other person or entity who is obligated to compensate you for losses or damages.

Because these Host Assurance Terms constitute an Assurance agreement, the theory of exoneration applies.

VII. Modification or Termination of Ezystayz Host Assurance Terms

To the extent permissible by applicable law in your jurisdiction, EzyStayz reserves the right to modify or terminate these Host Assurance Terms at any time and at its sole discretion.

If EzyStayz terminates these Host Assurance Terms, EzyStayz will provide you with notice by email at least thirty (30) days before such termination and EzyStayz will continue to process all EzyStayz Host Assurance Payment Request Forms that you filed prior to the effective date of termination. However, your right to file any new EzyStayz Host Assurance Payment Request Forms will immediately terminate.

If EzyStayz modifies these Host Assurance Terms, we will post the modification on the EzyStayz Platform and will continue to process all EzyStayz Host Assurance Payment Request Forms that were filed prior to the effective date of the modification.

In addition to the rights set forth in the immediately preceding paragraph, EzyStayz reserves the right to modify or terminate these Host Assurance Terms if: (i) these Host Assurance Terms are construed to be an offer to insure or constitute insurance or an insurance contract or insurance service agreement by any governmental or regulatory authority in any jurisdiction; (ii) EzyStayz is required to obtain a license or permit of any kind to continue to provide these Host Assurance Terms in any jurisdiction; or (iii) EzyStayz determines or a court or arbitrator holds that the provisions of these Host Assurance Terms violate applicable law. 

If EzyStayz modifies or terminates these Host Assurance Terms in regards to any of the above, EzyStayz will process all EzyStayz Host Assurance Payment Request Forms that were filed prior to such modification, unless such processing is prohibited by law, regulation, ordinance, order or decree of any governmental or other authority.

VIII. Subrogation

EzyStayz and/or EzyStayz’ insurer have the right to subrogate against any person or entity whatsoever who allegedly is responsible for causing the losses or damages in question, even if that person or entity is you. You must hereby agree that, with respect to any payments made under the EzyStayz Host Assurance, you will assist in and cooperate fully with EzyStayz regarding any and all efforts at subrogation.

IX. Disclaimers and Limitations of Liability

If you choose to use the EzyStayz Platform as a Host, you do so at your sole risk. You acknowledge and agree that, to the maximum extent permitted by law, the entire risk arising out of your access to and use of the EzyStayz Platform (and your listing of any Accommodations via the EzyStayz Platform) remains yours. Neither EzyStayz, nor any other party involved in creating, producing or delivering the EzyStayz Platform will be liable for any incidental, special, exemplary or consequential damages, including lost profits, loss of data or loss of goodwill, service interruption, computer damage or system failure, or for any damages associated with (i) personal or bodily injury or emotional distress arising out of or in connection with these Host Assurance terms, (ii) the use of or inability to use the EzyStayz Platform, (iii) from any communications, interactions or meetings with other users of the EzyStayz Platform, or (iv) from your listing of any Accommodation via the EzyStayz Platform.

Except for EzyStayz obligation to pay amounts to you pursuant to an Approved Payment Request under these Host Assurance Terms, in no event will EzyStayz have liability arising out of or in connection with (a) these Host Assurance Terms; (b) your use of or inability to use the EzyStayz Platform, (c) any Accommodation and (d) your interactions with any other Members, exceed the amounts paid by EzyStayz to you in the twelve (12) month period prior to the event giving rise to the liability, or one hundred dollars ($100), if no such payments have been made, as applicable. The limitations of damages set forth above are fundamental elements of the agreement between EzyStayz and you. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion for certain limitations of liability, so the above limitations may not apply to you.

If you reside in the EU, EzyStayz is liable under statutory provisions for intent and gross negligence by us, our legal representatives, directors or other vicarious agents. The same applies to the assumption of Assurances or any other strict liability, or in case of a culpable injury to life, limb or health. EzyStayz is liable for any negligent breaches of essential contractual obligations by us, our legal representatives, directors or other vicarious agents. Essential contractual obligations are such duties of EzyStayz in whose proper fulfilment you regularly trust and must trust for the proper execution of the contract, but the amount shall be limited to the typically occurring foreseeable damage.

X. Dispute Resolution and Arbitration Agreement

This Dispute Resolution and Arbitration Agreement shall apply if you (i) reside in Australia; or (ii) do not reside in Australia, but bring any claim against EzyStayz in Australia (to the extent not in conflict with Section 21 of the EzyStayz Terms).

Overview of Dispute Resolution Process. 

EzyStayz is committed to participating in a consumer-friendly dispute resolution process. These Host Assurance Terms provide for a two-part process: (1) an informal negotiation directly with EzyStayz customer service team, and (2) a binding arbitration administered by the Department of Fair Trading.

Arbitrators must be neutral and no party may unilaterally select an arbitrator;

Arbitrators must disclose any bias, interest in the result of the arbitration, or relationship with any party;

Parties retain the right to seek relief in small claims court for certain claims, at their option;

The arbitrator can grant any remedy that the parties could have received in court to resolve the party’s individual claim.

Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution and Notification. 

Prior to initiating an arbitration, you and EzyStayz each agree to notify the other party of the dispute and attempt to negotiate an informal resolution to it first. We will contact you at the email address you have provided to us and you can contact EzyStayz Customer Support Team by emailing us. If (after a good faith effort to negotiate) one of us feels the dispute has not and cannot be resolved informally, the party intending to pursue arbitration agrees to notify the other party via email prior to initiating the arbitration. In order to initiate arbitration, a claim must be filed with the Department of Fair Trading.
