• 1 Object of contracts
4yourfairs acts only as an intermediary and mediates private accommodations between tenants and landlords. The resulting accommodation contract exists directly between the tenant and the landlord. The intermediary service provided by 4yourfairs is regulated in a separate commission contract between tenant and 4yourfairs.
• 2 Booking procedure and entitlement to commission
After his request, the tenant gets a non-binding offer from 4yourfairs. In case of any special requirements (allergies etc.) 4yourfairs needs to be informed by the tenant in writing with the booking request. After the tenant agrees to the offer, 4yourfairs contacts the landlord to check the final vacancy. If the landlord agrees to the booking, the booking is completed and the tenant receives a written booking confirmation from 4yourfairs. From this moment, the General Terms and Conditions of 4yourfairs apply to the tenant, the landlord and 4yourfairs. This includes the full payment of commission for the agreed rental period, regardless of the actual signing of the contracts, any subsequent reductions in the total rent (e.g. by shortening the rental period or notifying defects) or a later cancellation by the tenant or landlord.
• 3 Payment of rental fee and commission
The price indicated in the offer is a final price including commission. As soon as the booking is completed the tenant receives an invoice from 4yourfairs concerning the commission. The commission has to be paid 10 days after receiving the invoice to the account of 4yourfairs, cashless via bank transfer. The rental fee is due 14 days before arrival and has to be paid directly from the tenant to the account of the landlord. For short-term bookings, the payments will be adjusted accordingly. Any transfer costs are to be covered by the tenant.
• 4 Contract Changes
A change request by the tenant after signing the accommodation contract is to be addressed to 4yourfairs as soon as possible. This includes in particular the announcement of additional overnight guests and changes concerning the rental period. 4yourfairs will inform the landlord in order to obtain the consent. Only after the approval of the landlord the contract amendments become effective. In case the amendment causes an increase of the rent, the commission increases accordingly. In this case the tenant receives a revised invoice from 4yourfairs. In case of a reduction of the occupancy or the rental period, the rent and the appropriate commission is not to be reduced or refunded. All agreed changes after signing the contract must be in writing.
Possible changes of guest(s) during the rental period have to be agreed directly between tenant and landlord. If possible, the landlord will clean up the room for the new guest, put on new bed linen and hand out fresh towels. For this service an additional services fee will be charged by the landlord. The tenant ensures to inform all guests that non-agreed additional overnight persons mean a change of contract which leads to an additional charge for rent and commission. Booked and finally unoccupied rooms are to be fully paid by the tenant.
• 6 Cancelation conditions
For the tenant, the following staggering of the cancellation costs applies if he withdraws from the contract after the booking has been confirmed:
up to 61 days before arrival = 20% of the agreed rental fee
60 to 35 days
before arrival = 50% of the agreed rental fee
from 34 days before arrival = 80% of the agreed rental fee
no-show on the
arrival date = 100% of the agreed rental fee
In the event of a cancellation by the tenant, the commission entitlement of 4yourfairs remains in full.
After accepting the booking the landlord can withdraw from the accommodation contract for serious and demonstrable reasons only. This primarily includes unforeseeable damages to or in the accommodation that makes it impossible to accommodate the tenant. In case of a cancellation forced by the landlord the landlord has no claim for the rental fee anymore and 4yourfairs may charge him a commission for findig a new accommodation for the tenant. Furthermore, the landlord has to cover all possible additional costs the tenant might have due to the cancellation.
Any cancellation has to be made in writing directly to the contract partner with a copy to 4yourfairs.
