Rental Agreement Terms:
Rent ability: If said leased premises are destroyed by fire or acts of God so as to be unfit for occupancy, either prior to or during the term of the lease, the Owner shall return an equitable prorated share of any rents that may have been paid in advance (full refund if the home is destroyed by fire or acts of God). The lease shall not terminate as a result of cosmetic defects or inoperable non-essential appliances.
Subletting: The Tenant shall not sublet the premises without written consent of the owner.
Indemnification: Owner, Second Home Second Chance Real Estate and Property Management, LLC., and any employee of Second Home Second Chance, shall not be held liable for any damage or injury of or to the Tenant, Tenant’s family, guests, invitees, agents or employees or to any person entering the premises, and Tenant hereby agrees to indemnify, defend and hold Owner harmless from any and all claims or assertions of every kind and nature.
Attorneys’ Fees: Should it become necessary for Owner to employ an attorney to enforce any of the conditions or covenants hereof, including the collection of rentals or gaining possession of the premises, Tenant agrees to pay all expenses so incurred, including a reasonable attorneys’ fee.
Tenant’s Hold Over: If Tenant remains in possession of the premises with the consent of Owner after the natural expiration of this agreement, a new tenancy from day to day shall be created between Owner/Agent and Tenant which shall be subject to all of the terms and conditions hereof except that rent shall then be due and owing at (seven hundred dollars)($700.00) per day and except that such tenancy shall be terminable upon (7) days written notice served by either party.
Default: Any default by the Tenant under the terms and conditions of this lease, including but not limited to unpaid rent, shall result in the termination of this lease and the premises must be vacated immediately with no refund to the Tenant.
Cancellation: All requests by the Tenant to cancel this lease must be made in writing to Owners or Agents within 60 days of the check-in date, and are subject to the property re-renting or acceptance by the Owner. All deposit money will be retained until the property is re-rented at full price. If the property is not re-rented for full price, the rent and applicable fees (tax and processing fees) will be kept and the security deposit (if collected) will be refunded. The cleaning fee and pet fee (if collected) will be refunded.
Acceptance: This lease must be signed and returned with deposit within 10 days of the above date. Reservations cannot be guaranteed until deposit is received and lease is fully executed.
Cleaning: A slight clean is required prior to check out. Do allow sufficient time before you leave to wipe down counters, clean small kitchen appliances (ie: empty coffee grounds, clean blender, etc) wash all dirty dishes (place them in the dish washer and start it), pots and pans cleaned, empty all items from the refrigerator which you brought with you, and remove all trash from garbage cans and leave bags in the area specified in the check-out instructions. Never leave garbage outside due to bears and other wild animals. Please hang up any wet towels to dry. Please return any furniture that has been moved to its original position. Failure to do the light cleaning, which requires our cleaning crew to spend extra time cleaning, will result in the added cleaning cost to be deducted from the security deposit.
Keys: Will be found in a lock box on the property (location to be specified) or be retained from property manager and must be left there upon departure. Result in taking keys, the change of locks and new set of keys cost will be deducted from security deposit.
Security Deposit: Security deposit (if collected) will be held by Owners or Agents in a non-interest bearing account and returned to the Tenant in accordance with applicable state law UNLESS THE OWNER PROVIDES NOTICE OF DAMAGE OR OTHER REASONS TO WITHOLD DEPOSIT WITHIN FOURTEEN DAYS OF THE LEASE TERMINATION DATE. Most homes do not require a security deposit. We will instead collect an administrative fee with which we will purchase a damage policy for your stay.
This is a NON-SMOKING Unit – damage from smoking will be taken out of the security deposit or charged to your credit card on file.
The DAMAGE POLICY IS NOT APPLIED TOWARD RENT. If damages exceed the amount of coverage, which ranges from $1500 to $3000, the owner and/or Second Home Second Chance Property Management is not limited to that amount and can charge additional fees to cover replacement or repair of damaged property. Stolen property and intentional damages will be directly charged to the renter’s credit card on file. If a security deposit has been collected, it will be returned within one month of the rental end date provided there are no damages.
Maximum Occupancy is limited to the number stated in the information agreement that is filled out by the renter. Maximum occupancy is stated on the VRBO website and the information form. There is a $50 fine per person/per night for more than the stated maximum. If more people are found within the home, we reserve the right to ask everyone to leave based on breach of contract. Please let us know the exact number of people who will be in the home.
PETS are not allowed at any property unless prior permission has been given or the home is pet friendly. IF YOU DID NOT PAY A PET FEE THEN THE HOME IS MOST LIKELY NOT PET FRIENDLY. PLEASE CALL IF THERE IS ANY DOUBT TO AVOID FEES which may include carpet and drape cleaning and clean up of the yard.
All PROPERTIES REQUIRE A TWO-NIGHT MINIMUM STAY.
