Rental Summary

Deposit

The amount paid to secure the booking is at the discretion of the Agency. However, the amount cannot exceed 30% of the total rental price. In case of cancellation the client will lose the deposit. It confirms the firm and final commitment of both parties and cannot be broken. If the tenant cancels the reservation, the agency reserves the right to request the full rental price.

Insurance

If you wish to rent out your property, it is highly recommended to obtain insurance against associated risks: fire, floods etc.…Many options are available and it is often possible to extend your current household insurance to include rental contracts.

Whatever the formula, it is your responsibility to verify that the extent and amount of the guarantee are sufficient in relation to the value of the furniture and accessories of the occupied dwelling.

Rental Agreement

This is a signed document in duplicate, showing the essential characteristics of the rental, the accommodation and its location (precise address of the accommodation - the rental period - the date of arrival and departure of the tenant - the Conditions of the rental - the amount of the damage deposit required, its mode and the detail of its return).

Charges

Water, electricity, gas etc. are included in the advertised rent, unless otherwise stated for certain long-term rentals. In the latter case, consider having the different meters read during the state of the places of entry and exit. 

Damage Deposit

Pre-established sum to be paid on arrival at the premises to protect the owner and the agency in case of deterioration made by the tenant during his stay. 

This deposit is refundable at the end of the rental, or at an agreed duration afterwards, if no damage has been found by the agency.

Descriptive

Document describing the rented premises, full address, summary of rental conditions. This description is provided for each lease.

 

It should be noted that any seasonal rental in furnished premises returned in the same condition it was acquired.

Inspection (on arrival and on departure)

The state of the premises is carried out in the presence of the agency and the tenant. This document is signed jointly by the agency and the tenant. This document must indicate, in addition to the address of the dwelling and the details of both parties to the lease, the date of entry and exit of the premises. It is important to note any missing objects when you arrive in relation to the inventory.

Inventory

 

Document that records in an extremely detailed way all the furniture that makes up the accommodation and made available to the tenant. The inventory shall be drawn up and annexed to the descriptive statement or to the rental contract. This document verifies the correspondence between the list and the elements present on the premises. 

Seasonal Rental

 

This is an apartment rental for a holiday. Seasonal renting is characterised by a specific duration (relatively short) and makes it escape the imperative rules of the "classic" rental. This rental must be in connection with a season or specified duration. 

Rent

The rent is freely determined between the parties and constitutes a sum of money paid in return for a service (the provision of a dwelling for the temporary enjoyment of a dwelling).

Tourist Tax

It is levied for the benefit of local and regional authorities, and in particular for the municipality where the rented accommodation is located, for the financing of the public facilities and services serving the municipality. The amount per day per person aged 13yrs+ depends on the standard of accommodation as rated (in stars) by the governing body.
