Contract of basic terms and conditions for holiday home rentals provided by intermediary Marie-Josée Tintinger
(valid from 01.01.2018 on)
Marie-Josée Tintinger acts only as a broker/intermediary between the owner or administrator of a property and a client.
When a booking confirmation is issued a lease agreement between the owner and the client comes into being on the basis of the accounting records, the publication on the internet and the following rules and regulations:
On request of the clients, Marie-Josée Tintinger reserves a holiday home and provides the client with: a booking form (rental contract and mediation mandate), these terms of trade and the owner’s/administrator’s terms of trade. By returning the booking form the client accepts the contract and the terms of the transaction. Following this Marie-Josée Tintinger confirms the booking and a lease agreement between the owner and the client comes into being. The client receives a booking confirmation with all information about arrival, payments, contact numbers and key holder.
The customer agrees to pay the entire contracted cost by the time specified. A deposit of approximately 25 % is to be paid to the intermediary. The final payment of the remaining 75% must be paid in cash upon receipt of the keys to the holiday home or, over a week in advance by bank transfer to the landlord's bank account. The deposit/pre-payment can be paid by bank transfer or credit card to the intermediary. For credit card payments an extra fee of 4% of the quoted amount is charged for bank expenses.
Cancellations before arrival should be arranged with Marie-Josée Tintinger in writing. The date of receipt of the cancellation will affect the client's reimbursement.
Arrangements regarding the reimbursement are specified in the terms of trade of the owner/administrator that are forwarded with booking form.
A client has the right to propose a replacement tenant.
