You acknowledge and agree that you, and not Releaz, will be responsible for performing the obligations of any contracts with the Investor, and Releaz is not a party to such contracts or Purchase and Sale Agreements and disclaims all liability arising from or related to such contracts. You represent and warrant that you will act in compliance with all applicable laws in connection with Listings you post using the Services and any sale of Properties to Investors.

Investor further understands and acknowledges that the value of any Property purchased may decline after you buy it and that future property values are unpredictable and may go down. Investor also acknowledges and agrees that Releaz is not an investment or tax advisor and you must make your own investment and tax decisions either alone or with the assistance of professional investment and tax advisors.
You agree that any legal remedy or liability that you seek to obtain for actions or omissions of a Property Owner or other third parties regarding Listings or any Purchase and Sale Agreement you enter into with a Property Owner for purchase of a Property, will be limited to a claim against the particular Property Owner or other third parties who directly caused you harm and you agree not to attempt to make a claim for damages or liability against Releaz, or seek any legal remedy from Releaz with respect to such actions or omissions. For additional terms regarding liability, please also refer to the paragraphs hereinbelow entitled “Indemnity” and “Limitation of Liability”.
In case that Investor proceeds to any action which may result in failure to complete the transaction due to his fault while he has already made a reservation for a Property, he shall be obliged to pay to Releaz a fee which is determined in the Agency Agreement.
