Student Housing Disclaimer
The housing and housing assistance referred to on this Webpage, videos and in part of this program is not being provided by the Institute of Culinary Education (“ICE”), but is provided by several companies that specialize in providing housing on a short term and long term basis in the Los Angeles Metropolitan Area (the “Housing Companies”). While ICE believes that these Housing Companies are reputable, ICE is not affiliated with them, has not conducted any background investigation into them, does not control them or their employees or representatives, and is not responsible or liable for their actions or omissions or any representations or recommendations that they may make. ICE is not an agent for any of the Housing Companies and has no authority to bind, or act on behalf of, any of them. None of the Housing Companies or their respective employees or agents is an agent of ICE and none of them has any authority to bind or act on behalf of ICE.
The Housing Companies may directly provide housing to you as a landlord, or they may simply arrange for you to rent housing from a third-party landlord or share a room with another tenant or owner of a home. You may be required to enter into verbal or written leases, agreements or arrangements with the Housing Companies, the landlords and/or others as a condition of securing housing. ICE strongly advises you to carefully review and make sure that you understand any agreement or arrangement before signing it or otherwise committing yourself. If you have any questions regarding any agreement or other arrangement, we recommend that you check with a qualified attorney before agreeing to the terms. If you are not comfortable with any terms, conditions or agreements provided by a Housing Company, you should not agree to such housing arrangement. Please be aware that ICE does not assume any responsibility for any agreement, arrangement or other understanding that you may enter into with any Housing Company, any landlord, or anyone else.
ICE has used reasonable efforts to provide a range of Housing Companies for its students’ varying needs and budgets. All statements made by ICE regarding the Housing Companies or the services to be provided by them, including, but not limited to: amenities, costs, lease terms, testimonials, etc. (“Housing Services”) are based on information provided to ICE by the Housing Companies for promotional purposes. Although ICE has no reason to believe that such statements are false, ICE makes no representation or warranty that they are true, correct or complete, and ICE assumes no responsibility with respect to any Housing Services (or lack thereof). Before entering into any agreement, arrangement or commitment with respect to any Housing Company or relying on any Housing Company for any Housing Services, you should specifically confirm any understandings or assumptions that you may have regarding such Housing Services with the applicable Housing Company.
Also, ICE has not necessarily inspected the housing or other accommodations offered to you, and ICE makes no representation or warranty, express or implied, that any such housing or accommodations will satisfy your needs or desires or expectations as to quality, safety, location, or any other matter. ICE strongly recommends that you do your own research and due diligence, that may include visiting the actual housing or accommodations offered to you and; if applicable, interviewing any prospective roommates or others with whom you may be sharing such housing or accommodations prior to entering into any lease, agreement, arrangement or other commitment with respect to such housing or accommodations and researching the specific Housing Company or other landlord.
ICE is not responsible or liable for, and has no control over, any landlord, host family, co-tenant, or other person with whom you may enter into an arrangement for, or with whom you may share an accommodation or housing. ICE does not guaranty in any manner and makes no representation or warranty, express or implied, as to the safety of any accommodation or housing or the neighborhood in which it is located. ICE is not responsible for mediating or resolving any disputes that may arise between you and any Housing Company, any landlord, any co-tenant, or any other person with whom you may share an accommodation or housing.
The housing information presented in ICE’s advertisements, videos or other promotions or marketing materials, including, but not limited to, ICE’s website, brochures, or verbally via a representative of ICE has been provided by the Housing Companies and is believed by ICE (without further inquiry) to be true at the time of advertisement. It is not to be considered a complete resource of all housing opportunities available in the surrounding communities of ICE’s campuses. Students of ICE are under no obligation to utilize the services of any Housing Assistance Company. Moreover, ICE does not guarantee housing through any of these listings. If for any reason you need additional help obtaining accommodations in the Los Angeles area, please notify ICE, and we will help you in any reasonable way we can.
