Article 2 - Length of the stay: the customer signing a contract for a specified period shall in no circumstances invoke any right to maintain occupancy at the end of the stay.
Article 3 - Conclusion of the contract: the reservation becomes effective when the tenant has sent the owner a payment of 25% of the total leasing and a copy of the contract signed before the date indicated on the front. A second copy is kept by the leaseholder. The lease agreement between the parties shall in no way benefit, even partially, to a third party (natural or legal person), without written consent of the owner. Any violation of this clause would be likely to result in immediate cancellation of the lease at the tenant's fault, the amount of the lease belonging permanently with the owner.
Article 4 - Cancellation by the leaseholder: cancellations must be notified by registered letter or telegram to the owner.
a) cancellation before arrival at the lodging house:. If the owner managed to rent the gîte to another group for the period previously agreed on, the payment (25%) is returned.
In the opposite case, the payment (25%) belongs to the owner who may request the remaining amount for the stay if cancellation occurs less than 30 days before the date of entry into the premises. If the lessee does not make themselves known within 24 hours of the arrival date indicated on the contract, this contract becomes null and void and the landlord may dispose of their house. The payment (25%) also remains the possession of the owner who asked for the balance of the lease.
b) after the arrival at the lodging house (shortened stay), the rental (100%) remains the possession of the owner. There will be no refund.
Article 5 - Cancellation by the owner:
- less than 30 days before the date of arrival mentioned in the contract : the owner repays the tenant double the deposit collected (2 x 25% = 50%).
