HomeAdvisor Terms and Conditions

This Web site and HomeAdvisor's services are offered to you, conditioned on your acceptance without modification, of the following terms, conditions, and notices contained in this agreement (the "Terms and Conditions"). Your use of this Web site or submission of service requests via telephone constitutes your agreement to all such terms, conditions, and notices in effect at such time. If you have any questions regarding these Terms & Conditions, you may contact us at HomeAdvisor.com. We may amend these Terms & Conditions at any time by posting a revised version of these Terms and Conditions on the HomeAdvisor Website. These Terms & Conditions were last updated on 03/09/2012.

1. Introduction to HomeAdvisor.

Upon your registration, you may choose your own password or HomeAdvisor will assign you a password to access the HomeAdvisor services through the HomeAdvisor Web site.

2. HomeAdvisor Services.

At HomeAdvisor we are committed to making your total HomeAdvisor experience a positive one. Upon entering your information and the request for which you would like a service professional, we will provide you with a list of service professionals in your area, if any, who may be interested in fulfilling your service need.

However, we do not guarantee that we will be able to match your service needs with a service professional or that there are service professionals in your area that are either capable or willing to complete your service needs. Although we take certain steps to examine the credentials of our listed service professionals, we make no guarantees or representations regarding the skills or representations of such service professional or the quality of the job that he or she may perform for you if you elect to retain their services. HomeAdvisor may inform you of certain offers or discounts provided by a service professional. Such offers or discounts are made solely by the service professional, and HomeAdvisor does not guarantee or warrant the pricing or discounts that a service professional may offer you. Any quotes provided by Service Professionals via the HomeAdvisor website are not contractually binding offers, are for informational purposes only, and cannot be accepted on or via the HomeAdvisor website. No contractual arrangement is created based upon the quotes provided to you from Service Professionals (or your scheduling of an appointment with a Service Professional) via the HomeAdvisor website. To contract with a Service Professional, you must work directly with the Service Professional. HomeAdvisor does not endorse or recommend the services of any particular service professional. It is entirely up to you to enter into a direct contract or otherwise reach agreement with a service professional, and we do not guarantee or warrant their performance on the job or the outcome or quality of the services performed. The service professionals are not employees or agents of HomeAdvisor, nor is HomeAdvisor an agent of the service professionals. HomeAdvisor does not perform, and is not responsible for, any of the services requested by you in your service request. Your rights under contracts you enter into with service professionals are governed by the terms of such contracts and by applicable federal, state, provincial and local laws. Should you have a dispute with any service professional, you must address such dispute with the service professional directly, AND YOU HEREBY AGREE TO RELEASE HOMEADVISOR (AND OUR OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, AFFILIATES, EMPLOYEES AND AGENTS) AND ANY OTHER PERSON, FIRM, OR ENTITY (INCLUDING OUR BUSINESS PARTNERS SUCH AS A PRODUCT MANUFACTURER OR SUPPLIER WHO MAY EMPLOY THE HOMEADVISOR MATCHING UTILITY) FROM ANY DAMAGES OR CLAIMS (INCLUDING CONSEQUENTIAL AND INCIDENTAL DAMAGES) OF EVERY KIND OR NATURE, SUSPECTED AND UNSUSPECTED, KNOWN AND UNKNOWN, AND DISCLOSED OR UNDISCLOSED, ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH SUCH DISPUTES AND YOUR DEALINGS WITH SERVICE PROFESSIONALS.

3. Resolution Process and Limited Service Guarantee.

While we cannot guarantee the work performed by a listed service professional, and while we have no obligation to you with regard to your relationship with a service professional, the HomeAdvisor resolution process has been developed to try and assist you in resolving any workmanship problems that may arise in the course of a home improvement repair or maintenance project and which may be the fault of a service professional who you learned about through the HomeAdvisor services. Under the circumstances more fully described herein and upon completion of all required procedures, although we have no such obligation, we may, upon your request, provide limited assistance in resolving disputes between you and a service professional. You must participate and use good faith efforts to resolve problems through the HomeAdvisor resolution process. If, in its sole discretion, HomeAdvisor determines that you have not participated and cooperated in good faith in the resolution process, HomeAdvisor may terminate such Resolution Process and the Limited Service Guarantee (details). Such limited assistance in no way nullifies the release and indemnification described in these Terms & Conditions. NOTE: The Limited Service Guarantee does not apply to any non-HomeAdvisor service professionals. Further, the Limited Service Guarantee does not apply to any HomeAdvisor service professionals that you become aware of and contact via the telephone numbers provided in the Best Pros Tab (in the HomeAdvisor App on Facebook, as defined in Section 11 below).

4. Information You Provide To Us.

Upon using the HomeAdvisor services, you will be prompted to disclose certain information about yourself and your service requirements, and you will be able to store information, such as home services records, on our Web site. Some of this information will be sent to service professionals who will need this information to respond to you or to other persons or entities in connection with our business. By providing this information to us, or by submitting a service request, you are requesting, and you expressly consent to being contacted by us and by our service professionals and providers via phone, fax, email, mail or other reasonable means, at any of your contact numbers or addresses, even if you are listed on any federal, state, provincial or other applicable "Do Not Call" list, in order that we may provide the services set forth on our site, to service your account, to reasonably address matters pertaining to your account or for other purposes reasonably related to your service request and our business, including marketing related emails. For complete details on our use of your information, please see our privacy statement. You agree that by completing a service request, you are entering into a business relationship with HomeAdvisor and its partners and thus agree to be contacted by HomeAdvisor and/or its partners. You promise that all information you provide will be accurate, current and truthful to the best of your knowledge. If you provide any information that is untrue, not current or incomplete, or HomeAdvisor has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, HomeAdvisor has the right to refuse any current or future use of the HomeAdvisor services (or any portion thereof) by you. You are responsible for any use of the HomeAdvisor services by persons to whom you intentionally or negligently allow access to your password.

5. Call Recording.

You acknowledge and agree that HomeAdvisor may monitor and/or record any telephone calls between you and HomeAdvisor.

SERVICE PROFESSIONAL PRESCREENING PROCEDURES AND DISCLAIMERS. Unless otherwise noted on the screening tab of a service professional's profile page, HomeAdvisor.com uses the following criteria as part of its registration enrollment process ("registration") for new service professionals, with the exception of Corporate Accounts (as described below) and service professionals providing services in Canada (neither of which are screened) applying for membership in our network:

Licensing

HomeAdvisor confirms at the time of a service professionals registration, that a prospective new SP member has all applicable required state-level trade licensing. Certain states may require state-level licensing for projects above specified dollar amounts. We recommend you confirm these licensing requirements with the business and the applicable state and local licensing authorities. In some states, licensing may be required by the county or local authority in which the work is being performed. We recommend you confirm these licensing requirements before proceeding with your project. Larger projects often require the use of sub-contractors for specific types of work (for example, a kitchen remodel may require an electrician or plumber). We recommend you verify that all the sub-contractors doing work on your project carry the appropriate licensing. Given the unique nature of California licensing, HomeAdvisor relies on representations of service professionals that are using a California General building contracting license to cover home improvement tasks, that such service professionals are performing more than one task as defined and required by California licensing rules. We always recommend that you ask the business to provide you with a copy of their license. HomeAdvisor does not check state-level or provincial level trade licensing for photographers or caterers.

State Business Filings

For service professionals that are corporations or limited liability companies, we confirm that the service professional is in good standing in the state in which it is located.

Criminal Records Search

HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business, within the three years prior to such service professional's registration with HomeAdvisor.

Sex Offender Search

In the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located, we check the state's official Sex Offender web site, to confirm that there is not a match based solely on the name of the owner/principal of the company. We do not run sex offender searches in any other states. Please note that only a fingerprint match can guarantee an accurate match for a sex offender search. We recommend that you check the applicable state sex offender website for any individual that will be performing work in your home.

Identity Verification (Social Security Number)

HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the service professional's owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.

Legal Search for Civil Judgments

We use 3rd party data sources that record legal information to check the principal / owner of the business for significant state-level civil legal judgments entered against the principal / owner by business customers and for bankruptcy filings by or against the principal / owner, both within the three years prior to such service professional's registration with HomeAdvisor.

NOTE: HomeAdvisor performs screening solely at the time the service professional applies for membership in the HomeAdvisor network, and therefore a service professional's information may change or expire over time. Thus, HomeAdvisor cannot and does not warrant or represent that profile and screening information is up to date. HomeAdvisor is under no obligation to update a service professional's screening information. We recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented in the service professional's profile, including any applicable state-level license, is still accurate, current and/or acceptable to you.

Corporate Accounts

Some Service Professionals are employees, franchisees, dealers, or independent contractors ("Corporate SP's") of larger national or corporate accounts ("Corporate Accounts"). In such event, you may be matched with the Corporate Account entity or with one of their Corporate SP's. The above screening criteria is not applicable to Corporate Accounts, and therefore, HomeAdvisor does not screen the Corporate Accounts or Corporate SP's.

9. Service Professionals Profiles:

HomeAdvisor allows Service Professionals to post profiles about themselves and their business on the HomeAdvisor website. HomeAdvisor does not review or verify the information or representations set forth in those profiles, except as expressly set forth above, as they are self-reported by the Service Professional. HomeAdvisor therefore makes no representations or warranties regarding any information posted by a Service Professional, and assumes no liability for such information.

The above procedures may change from time to time at the sole discretion of HomeAdvisor. HomeAdvisor believes that it uses commercially reasonable methods to check these matters but does not make any representations or warranties that members are appropriately licensed or free of significant state-level civil legal judgments, during the period they are members, or thereafter. As circumstances can change daily, HomeAdvisor advises consumers to check these matters for themselves especially at future dates. HomeAdvisor does not represent or warrant that the information received from state, provincial or other government agencies or from third party sources is accurate, error free, or that it is up to date or updated at the time that HomeAdvisor checks such information. Most agencies have periodic update cycles or schedules and this information is not updated on a real-time basis by such agencies and third party sources.

DISCLAIMER: HOMEADVISOR EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED RELATING TO THE PRESCREENING PROCESS, CRITERIA, PROCEDURES, OR INFORMATION OBTAINED OR PRESENTED IN THE PRESCREENING PROCESS OR DISCLOSURES INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR USE, OR THAT THE SCREENING OR VERIFICATION PROCEDURES OR STANDARDS ARE SUFFICIENT OR THAT THE INFORMATION RECEIVED IN THESE SCREENING OR VERIFICATION PROCEDURES IS ACCURATE, TIMELY OR ERROR FREE.

10. Posting Ratings & Reviews on HomeAdvisor.com

HomeAdvisor reserves the right, but not the obligation, to refuse to post or to remove any Review if HomeAdvisor determines (in its sole discretion) that it contains or features any of the following:

  • Offensive, harmful and/or abusive language, including without limitation: expletives, profanities, obscenities, harassment, vulgarities, sexually explicit language and hate speech (e.g., racist/discriminatory speech.)
  • References to illegal activity.
  • Reviews that do not address the goods and services of the business or reviews with no qualitative value (e.g., "work has not started yet").
  • Language that violates the standards of good taste or the standards of this Site.
  • Comments concerning a different Service Professional.
  • Information not related to work requested in the service request.
  • Statements that are or appear to be false.
  • Comments that disparage HomeAdvisor.

Further, the reviewer must provide permission to HomeAdvisor to contact the Service Professional about his or her work request. If a dispute arises between a consumer and professional, the rating submitted may be held in pending status until resolution is reached.

Ratings & Reviews are not endorsed by HomeAdvisor.com
All Ratings and Reviews of a Service Professional displayed to you reflect the opinions of other consumers, and do not reflect or represent the opinions or representations of HomeAdvisor. HomeAdvisor disclaims any and all representations or warranties with regard to the Ratings and Reviews.

Reviews do not reflect the views of HomeAdvisor; its parent, subsidiary or affiliated companies; or its employees, officers, directors, or shareholders.

HomeAdvisor does not assume responsibility or liability for any Review or for any claims, damages, or losses resulting from any use of the Site or the materials contained therein.

11. HomeAdvisor App on Facebook.

The HomeAdvisor App on Facebook is a downloadable software application that consists of multiple tabs, including the Best Pros directory tab ("Best Pros Tab"). The Best Pros Tab is an online directory community, hosted by HomeAdvisor, which allows you to share service professional information, including ratings and reviews, with your friends and neighbors. Information in your Best Pros Tab may contain information provided by you as well as by HomeAdvisor and third parties, and information regarding both HomeAdvisor service professionals and non-HomeAdvisor service professionals. HomeAdvisor makes no representations or warranties regarding non-HomeAdvisor service professionals, including but not limited to any contact information regarding such non-HomeAdvisor service professionals. HomeAdvisor makes no representations or warranties regarding HomeAdvisor service professionals that you become aware of and contact via the telephone numbers provided in the Best Pros Tab (as in such case, we are unaware of the task for which you will be seeking service from the HomeAdvisor Service Professional, and therefore will be unable to determine whether the HomeAdvisor service professional has the appropriate state-level licensing for such task). The Limited Service Guarantee does not apply to any non-HomeAdvisor service professionals. Further, the Limited Service Guarantee does not apply to any HomeAdvisor service professionals that you become aware of and contact via the telephone numbers provided in the Best Pros Tab. HomeAdvisor represents that HomeAdvisor Consumer Ratings and Reviews appearing on the Best Pros Tab are Ratings and Reviews from consumers who have been matched by HomeAdvisor to the HomeAdvisor service professional. HomeAdvisor makes no representations regarding any other Ratings and Reviews appearing in the Best Pros Tab. You represent and warrant that any content you post or provide on the Best Pros Tab shall be true and correct, and you are responsible for any such content that you post or provide on the Best Pros Tab.

12. Service Requests Posted on HomeAdvisor Job Board.

Where you have requested that HomeAdvisor post your service request on the HomeAdvisor Job Board, the terms set forth in this section shall apply, in addition to the other terms and conditions set forth herein. In the event of any conflict between the terms in this section, and the terms in all other sections of these Terms & Conditions, the terms of this section shall prevail. You understand and acknowledge that contractors provided to you from the Job Board are NOT pre-screened members of the HomeAdvisor network. These contractors have not been pre-screened by HomeAdvisor, and HomeAdvisor does not make, and expressly disclaims any guarantees, representations or warranties whatsoever with regard to these contractors. The contractors are provided to you "as is." We encourage you to ensure that these contractors are appropriately licensed and insured for the work you are requesting to be performed, and to do any further investigation into their references and background as you deem necessary. The sections above titled "RESOLUTION PROCESS AND LIMITED SERVICE GUARANTEE" and "SERVICE PROFESSIONAL PRESCREENING PROCEDURES AND DISCLAIMERS" expressly do not apply to service requests posted on the HomeAdvisor Job Board.

SOME STATES AND PROVINCES DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON OR EXCLUSION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. IN SUCH STATES AND PROVINCES, THE ABOVE EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. The Terms and Conditions will inure to the benefit of HomeAdvisor's successors, assigns and licensees. If any provision of these Terms and Conditions shall be deemed unlawful, void or unenforceable, for any reason, by any court of competent jurisdiction that provision shall be modified in order to make it enforceable, while maintaining the spirit of the provision. Alternatively, if modification is not possible, such provision shall be stricken and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining terms. The failure of HomeAdvisor to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Terms and Conditions shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the HomeAdvisor services or the Terms and Conditions must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred. The section titles in the Terms and Conditions are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect.

These Terms and Conditions constitute the entire agreement between you and HomeAdvisor and supersede all oral and written negotiations or representations of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof. These Terms and Conditions may not be modified or amended other than by an agreement signed by both parties.

Relocation.com moving company members are not prescreened members of the HomeAdvisor network.

17. Decorating and Interior Design Services: Out of Network Matches

In the event that HomeAdvisor is unable to match you with a decorating/interior design service professional that is a member of the HomeAdvisor Network, HomeAdvisor may match you to Decorati, Inc members.
