Terms & Conditions of Sales


Section 1
Relations between parties are governed by these general conditions to the exclusion of all others. For all that is not expressly determined under the terms hereof, only Belgian law is applicable.

Section 2
This lease is a seasonal rental contract. The short duration of the contract constitutes an essential condition without which the contract would not have been concluded.

This contract cannot therefore be qualified as a commercial lease.

The lessee will therefore not establish his main residence in the rented building, so that any legal provisions relating to the protection of family housing will not apply to this contract.

Section 3
No reservation of accommodation is possible without prior payment of the deposit included in this contract.
The deposit will be paid into account BE36 00187992 6381 (GEBABEBB - BNP Paribas Fortis) within a maximum period of 3 days after receipt of the contract,

In the event that the tenant renounces to occupy the accommodation definitively reserved, the deposit will not be refunded to him. The lessor will also be entitled to claim the balance of the rent from him.

The balance of the rent, miscellaneous charges as well as the rental guarantee, the details of which are given in article 4, must imperatively be paid or handed over to the lessor at least 15 days before the keys are handed over to account BE36 00187992 6381 (GEBABEBB - BNP Paribas Fortis), Failing this, the lessee will be presumed to have waived the lease.

In the event of an error, double rental or unavailability of the accommodation resulting from a case of force majeure on the part of the lessor (the lessor will not have to establish either the unpredictability or the irresistibility of the circumstance, or impossibility of performance of the contract), the latter will return the advance paid, unless the parties have been able to agree on another accommodation. In the event of fault on the part of the lessor, the latter will be liable for an amount equivalent to that of the deposit. In any event, its liability cannot be incurred beyond this amount.

Section 4
A rental guarantee of €400.00 per accommodation is required (with the exception of Le Marronnet accommodation for which the rental guarantee is set at €300.00). This rental guarantee is degressive according to the number of accommodations rented by the same lessor for the same period.

The tenant pays the rental guarantee no later than 15 days before his arrival on account BE36 00187992 6381 (GEBABEBB - BNP Paribas Fortis),

Section 5
The guarantee as well as the provision for charges will be reimbursed within two months after the departure of the tenant and after it has been duly noted that the tenant has met all his obligations. In the event that the lessor should involve third parties for the calculation of consumption costs or for the estimation of damages, the period provided for may be extended.

In the absence of an entry inventory, the parties agree that these are in perfect rental condition and must be returned as such. The fact that the guarantee or the provision have been fully or partially reimbursed when the tenant leaves cannot mean that the tenant is exempt from compensation for damage observed after his departure or from the payment of unsettled invoices.

Electricity and heating consumption are the responsibility of the tenant. Electricity consumption will be calculated according to the indications of the meters. Heating consumption will be calculated on a flat-rate basis. Water consumption is included in the rental price.

The cleaning of the accommodation at the end of the rental period is carried out by the lessor at the expense of the lessee. A lump sum will be invoiced to him for this purpose at the start of the rental. This also includes the cleaning of the lingerie (towels and sheets) made available to the tenant. The beds are made on arrival.

Section 6
The fire insurance premium and family insurance are the responsibility of the tenant.

Section 7
It is forbidden for the lessee to sublet all or part of the rented building or to assign the rights to a third party.

Section 8
Items that are part of the furniture cannot be transported or moved. If, notwithstanding this prohibition, the tenant has transported or moved furniture during his occupation, he will be required to put it back in place before his departure. An inventory of all the furniture will be given to the tenant at the same time as the keys to the building. The tenant is required to verify the accuracy upon arrival. Any comments must imperatively be notified in writing to the lessor within twenty-four hours.After this period, these will no longer be taken into consideration. In the event of damage, breakage or loss of objects in the accommodation, the tenant must inform the lessor immediately and compensate him.

It is forbidden for the tenant to change the destination of the rooms. The number of people allowed to stay in the premises is determined by the number of beds, in the absence of a formal agreement on this point. The accommodation may be occupied from 4 p.m. on the first day the rental takes effect until 10 a.m. on the day it expires. If at that time, the tenant's personal effects were still in the accommodation, the lessor would be authorized to have them removed and this without being liable for any loss or damage. If due to special circumstances and with the consent of the lessor, the tenant takes possession of the accommodation before the agreed time, the prior cleaning of the premises cannot be carried out.

The tenant must, on his departure, ensure the general state of cleanliness of the premises and in particular ensure that the broom is swept in each room and the garbage cans emptied. If he remains in default on this point, additional cleaning costs will be invoiced to him.
Pets are not allowed in the accommodations.

Section 9
All the outbuildings (garden at the back of the building, pond, barbecue, car park, children's games, etc.) are made available to the tenant in a completely precarious manner and under the sole responsibility of its user. The lessee cannot claim any rights over them.

Access to the pond is only allowed to children if they are accompanied by an adult.

In any case, the lessor will not assume any responsibility for any cause whatsoever (accident, theft, etc.).

Section 10
The lessor provides the tenant, free of charge, with a safe in order to keep his valuables if he wishes. However, the lessor declines all responsibility in the event of theft or robbery.

Section 11
The lessee and the lessor elect domicile at the respective addresses indicated at the beginning of this contract.

The parties undertake to notify each other in writing of any change of address.

Section 12

In addition, the lessor's obligations are performed at the latter's registered office.
