General Conditions

1. LENGTH OF STAY

The rental cannot be extended without the prior agreement of the proprietor or the agency, the tenant accepting this.

This latter, the tenant, declares on his/her honour that he/she will not exercise nor seek to exercise any profession in the rented property and that the properties making the object of the present contract are not rented to him/her other than as a temporary residence; these are major conditions without which the present rental will not be agreed to.   

2. FIXED PRICE INCLUDING THE CONSUMPTION OF ENERGY

The present contract is fixed and definitive. The tenant, having put down a deposit on account for the rental, engages to take possession of the premises put at disposition fixed by the contract and to pay the balance of the rental one month before the start of the rental.

3. SECURITY DEPOSIT

The security deposit is paid to cover damage which can be caused to the premises rented and to furniture or other objects equipping the rented premises as well as various charges and outlay.

This deposit will be returned or destroyed after a satisfactory inventory; if the inventory is not satisfactory deduction will be made after a delay of 15 days for objects replaced, expenses in repair, extra cleaning and high outlay. If the guarantee deposit proves insufficient, the tenant agrees to make the sum up.

4. OBLIGATIONS OF THE TENANT

-The tenant agrees to return the rented premises in the state in which he/she found them at the time of his/her entry such as is described in the annex to this present contract.

-An inventory and description of the premises, checked beforehand by the lessor, will be provided on arrival. The tenant agrees to verify these, marking all anomalies, and return them dated and signed within 24 hours. Any claim will not be taken account of in case of any delay.

-The furniture and furnishings (wall paper, curtains ...) must not suffer more than depreciation from the normal use for which they are intended. If at the end of the present contract they are missing or have been put out of service, for a cause other than normal usage, they must be paid for or replaced by the tenant with the consent of the proprietor or his agent. The following will be retained if need arises from the guarantee deposited:


a) the value of objects broken or cracked.
b) the cost of washing or cleaning carpets, covers, mattresses, bedding, which have been soiled.

-The tenant is obliged to use the furniture and objects equipping the premises rented for the use for which they are intended and in the places in which they are found. It is formally forbidden to take them out of the rented premises.

-The tenant must absolutely refrain from throwing down the toilet objects which will block it; failure to do so will lead to liability for the costs needed to return the sanitary equipment to service.

-Subject to termination, the tenant cannot, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, sub­let or grant his rights to the present contract without the express consent of the proprietor or his agent; he/she must live respectably in the rented premises, respecting above all the regulations relative to the tranquillity of the building.

-The premises presently rented must not under any circumstances be occupied by a number of persons larger than that indicated on the front page. If the number of persons exceeds that expected, the agent can refuse the extra persons. All breaking of contract which may result will then be attributed to the initiative of the tenant.

-The tenant must allow on the premises urgent work to be carried out when necessary to maintain in a good state the rented property and the elements of shared equipment.

-The tenant may not introduce into the premises currently rented ANY ANIMAL; if this clause is not respected by the tenant, the agent can refuse entry into the premises. All breaking of contract which may result will then be attributed to the initiative of the tenant.

-It is expressly forbidden to hang laundry from the windows and balconies.

- ATTENTION: The high bunk bed is not suitable for children under 6 years.

5. OBLIGATIONS OF THE LESSOR

The lessor is obliged to put at the tenant's disposal the rented property conforming to the condition described and to respect the obligations resulting from the present contract.

6. INSURANCE

The tenant is responsible for all damages arising from his actions. He declares he is covered by his Insurance Company by means of a holiday/vacation policy against the risks of theft, fire, broken windows and water damage, and more generally both for his total risks as a tenant and for the property given in rent, just as for claims from neighbours. As a result, the proprietor or his agent decline all responsibility for the claims that their insurance company might exercise against the tenant in case of accident.

7. CANCELLATION CHARGE

  1. In case of cancellation after the receipt of payment confirming the reservation, the TENANT must notify the AGENCY of the cancellation at least sixty days before the beginning of the rental. In this case the payment will be reimbursed with a deduction of one hundred and fifty Euros for administration expenses.

  2. If the TENANT cancels less than sixty days before the start of the rental, for whatever cause, the charges for cancellation will be due according to the list below:

    - 25% of the total payment of the rental if the cancellation is made less than 60 days and more than 30 days before the expected arrival.

    - 100% of the total payment of the rental if the cancellation is made less than 30 days before the expected arrival or in the case of the tenant not turning up on the expected day of arrival ('no­show').

  3. However, if the premises can be re­let, the cancellation charges will be reduced to one hundred and fifty Euros for administration expenses.
