TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF RENTAL APARTMENTS
RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE OWNER AND THE GUEST
Sometimes people ask us: “… when we book a hotel or a Bed and Breakfast, we don’t have to pay everything in advance. Why, when we rent a self catering home or apartment, do we have to pay the rental fee and security deposit in advance?… “
The reasons are these: in hotels and B&Bs, rooms and services are managed by the owners or managers. On the other hand, in the self-catering apartments or homes, you have complete freedom to organize your daily life as you wish, using the rooms, the furniture, linen, crockery, and utensils that you have rented.
With the delivery of the keys, the owner/host entrusts his home to the guest/tenant. The rental of a self catering home or apartment is in all respects a true tenancy agreement, which usually includes an upfront payment and a damage deposit.
