If you are unwilling or unable to be bound by these Terms and Conditions of Service, you must exit the Website. "You" or "your" refer to you as a Member of Vebo or a user of the Website, as an individual or any type of legal entity.

Vebo Live Pty Ltd is the owner and operator of www.vebolive.com, which is a website that facilitates the exchange of vacation properties exclusively between owners.
For this "exclusive club" to function properly for the enjoyment of like-minded vacation property owners around the world (Members), we expect our Members to treat their peers and their peers' properties with the respect they deserve.
With this in mind, Members would not really need to read the document set out below, however our lawyers have insisted that the following terms and conditions be included to protect the interests of all the parties involved.
The following words and phrases shall have the following meanings:
Exchange Fee means the fee payable to Vebo by a Guest Member for booking a Host member’s property.
Guest Member means a Member or nominee when acting as a guest at another Member’s property.
Host Member means a Member who deposits time in their property and makes the property available for booking and stays by other Members.
Member means an individual owner of a property suitable for vacation or holiday who agrees to join the membership club operated by Vebo.
Membership Fees means the joining fee and annual renewal fee payable by the Member to Vebo as specified on the Website.
Property means real estate suitable for vacation or holiday made available by a Member to the membership club operated by Vebo, with an onsite 24/7 residential property manager.
Vebo means Vebo Holdings Pty Limited ACN 151694772, a company registered in New South Wales, Australia, who owns and operates Vebo.
Website means Vebo, as owned and operated by Vebo.
Vebo is providing an information service and provides a listing of vacation or holiday residences for Members to consider for exchange purposes. It is not an agent and is not acting as an agent to any party. Vebo serves as a consulting group allowing Members to publish listings of properties they own that are available for exchange purposes. Vebo does not own any property on the Website and is not involved in the actual transactions between the property owner and any guests. Vebo receives Membership and Exchange Fees for the provision of its services. Vebo relies entirely on the integrity and responsibility of the individual listing parties (Members) and residential managers who verify the existence, suitability, accuracy or content of any property and/or listing.
The Member warrants that all information provided to Vebo is accurate, true and correct. In addition, the Member warrants that any modifications or amendments to the property that alter the accuracy of the information previously provided by the Member will be notified to Vebo immediately. Photographs must be of the submitted property and be current and accurate.
The Member warrants that, where required, they have obtained any permissions required to perform their obligations under this Agreement.
Members must deposit a minimum of 2 weeks in their property in order to join Vebo.
A week is defined as running 7 consecutive days including “One” weekend. Each week must be deposited at least 90 days in advance of the start date.
Once you have deposited the 2 weeks to Vebo, it will be automatically blocked out for another Member’s use. If another Member accepts that time period, you are contractually bound to allow that Member to stay in your property for that time period.
To maintain the highest standards in the industry and for quality control purposes, Vebo permits inspectors to visit the member properties for the purpose of inspecting the property. This practice benefits all Members.
As a Host Member, you agree to supply keys to the Guest Member via the resort manager in an agreed manner, make available all services to the Guest Member and ensure that all appliances provided in the residence are in good working order. In addition, the Host Member warrants that their property is appropriately furnished for the full enjoyment by the Guest Member.
Host Members agree to have in place a current and appropriate Home Owners insurance policy to cover any guests staying in their property. It is the sole responsibility of the Host Member to check what is covered by their policy.
As a Host Member, you agree to maintain your property and have it clean and ready for occupation by the Guest Member.
If a Host Member cancels the availability of their property after the Guest Member has paid for their travel arrangements then the Host Member’s credit card will be charged for the amount required to accommodate a Guest Member in accommodation of a similar standard to the Host Member’s property for the same length of time.
The Guest Member will abide by the maximum number of guests permitted to stay in the Host Member’s property. In addition, the Guest Member will vacate the said property on or before the last day as outlined in the confirmation agreement.
The Guest Member shall agree to observe any restrictions, rules or regulations that apply to the property, including but not limited to, rules relating to smoking or pets in the property.
The Guest Member is fully responsible for the actions of all those who use the Host Member's property during the dates of the exchange agreement including family members, guests and any others.
As the Guest Member, you agree to be responsible for any damages caused by you, your family members or invited guests to a property during your stay. Vebo requires that each Guest Member reimburse the Host Member for any and all damages that may be caused by their stay.
The Guest Member agrees to leave the property reasonably clean but is not responsible for cleaning of linens and flooring surfaces. The Guest Member also agrees to immediately return all keys to the resort manager in a manner agreed between the two parties.
If for any reason, the Guest Member cancels the exchange, there are no refunds to the Guest Member of the exchange fee or credits.
If a Guest Member, in any way, damages the property of a Host Member then their credit card will be charged for the amount to fix and repair the damages as verified by quotes and invoices.
Membership in Vebo will continue for a period of one year from the date of acceptance (unless otherwise stated), and be renewable per annum upon acceptance.
The Member agrees to remain a Member until the expiry of their membership.
Vebo can terminate this Agreement in the event that the Member fails to make punctual payment of any fee due under this Agreement.
Vebo can terminate this Agreement in the event that the Member breaches any obligation under this Agreement.
In the event that Vebo terminates this Agreement under the above clauses the following shall occur:
The Member shall pay on demand all arrears of fees.
Vebo shall be entitled to remove all details relating to the Member's residence from the Website.
