1 – OBJECT
These general terms and conditions are an integral part of the temporary accommodation contract, without any possibility of electing a legal/registered address (domicile). They prevail over any purchase terms and conditions of the customer.
2 – BOOKING
The booking of a Businest accommodation is valid only after written acceptance of the booking by Businest. The acceptance of the reservation remains at the discretion of Businest.
In addition, the reservation must, to be firm, be guaranteed by an advance payment, the amount of which is determined by Businest and varies according to the location and duration of the rental. Failing receipt of this deposit within the time specified in the booking confirmation sent by Businest, the reservation will be automatically canceled.
3 – PAYMENT TERMS
Stays of less than 1 month duration: the total amount of the rental, the rental guarantee and the provision for consumptions must be paid at the latest on arrival of the customer, minus the advance payment.
Stays lasting more than 1 month: the total amount of the first month of rental, the rental guarantee and the monthly provision for consumptions must be paid at the latest on arrival of the customer, after deduction of the advance payment. Later payments are to be made by bank transfer every month, so that the account of Businest is credited before the expiry of the previous period.
A monthly late payment interest of 13% with a minimum of € 30 will be applied on any amount not paid on its due date.
If it has been agreed that the payment of the stay would be made by a third party, the resident will remain personally liable for the payment in question.
4 – PRICE
Prices are quoted in euros and include only the provision of housing.
Administrative costs of a minimum amount of €25 will be added in the following cases:
– contacts with several stakeholders for the same rental (e.g. applicant, responsible tenant, actual tenant(s))
– modification of the length of stay
– production of documents
– other special requests
5 – MODIFICATION OF THE DURATION OF THE STAY
Extensions: Subject to availability and at the discretion of Businest, the length of stay may be extended without any obligation to stay in the same accommodation or at the same price.
An extension is only valid after written acceptance by Businest. It is recommended that the customer make such a request as soon as possible.
Advance departures: for rentals whose rent is calculated per week, a reduction in the length of stay is only possible if the customer informs Businest in writing at least 14 days before his actual departure.
For rentals whose rent is calculated per month: a reduction in the length of stay is only possible if the customer notifies Businest in writing at least 30 days before his actual departure.
In any other case, no reduction is possible and the amount of the rent remains due until the originally planned term.
When the resident has benefited from a preferential rate subject to a minimum stay duration, and this condition is no longer fulfilled following an early departure, the rents of the entire stay must be recalculated at the rate applicable to the new stay duration.
6 – CANCELLATIONS / NO SHOWS
Any cancellation done at least one week before arrival is subject to a compensation equal to the amount of the deposit paid at the time of booking.
Any cancellation done less than one week before arrival is subject to a compensation equal to the rent for one month, or to the rent for the full stay if shorter than one month.
Failure to arrive on the agreed date will be deemed to be a “no show” also voiding the contract and subject to the same compensation.
7 – OBLIGATIONS OF THE RESIDENT
The accommodation will be made available to the resident in a good state of maintenance. The resident will use rented premises and their facilities as a reasonable and prudent person. Businest will make a monthly visit to the accommodation, according to a schedule communicated to the resident at least 48 hours in advance, in order to check that this state of maintenance is maintained. In the event of a breach attributable to the resident, cleaning will be carried out at the resident’s expense. In the event of a serious or repeated breach, the contract will be terminated in accordance with the provisions of article 9.
At the discretion of Businest, the acceptance of the reservation may also in certain cases be subject to a mandatory periodic cleaning at the expense of the resident for the duration of the stay.
An inventory is included in each accommodation. The resident must check its accuracy and quality upon arrival and report to Businest any anomaly, missing or degraded objects within one hour of arrival. When the resident leaves, the inventory and the state of cleanliness of the accommodation will be checked by Businest and any loss of inventory or damage to the housing will be billed to the resident.
During the last month of rental visits will be organized to find new tenants, and this twice weekly 2 consecutive hours in agreement with the resident.
The resident gives a mandate to Businest to enter the premises to perform the maintenance or repair of the technical equipment, if any. Businest also has the right to enter the rented premises for any emergency or security measure.
8 – RESPONSIBILITY
The responsibility of Businest can not be engaged in case of theft or damage to personal effects, in the housing, car parks and any other dependencies or annexes of housing.
The responsibility of Businest can not be sought either in case of exceeding the accommodation capacity of the accommodation by the resident.
9 – TERMINATION – SANCTIONS
The contract will be terminated automatically, without formality and without delay, in case of non-respect by the resident of any of his obligations or inappropriate behavior likely to disturb the stay of other occupants. The resident must leave the premises immediately and may be expelled if necessary with the assistance of the police.
The non-payment of the stay is a waiver of the rental contract and involves handing over the keys to Businest and expressly waiving the stay. The rental deposit will be retained by Businest as compensation.
10 – JURISDICTION OF THE COURTS
In the event of a dispute arising in the execution or interpretation of this contract, the competent court is that of the Justice of Peace of the district where the accommodation is located.
