Rental terms and conditions
VILLA MUTTERI RENTAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
The owner applies the following terms in booking and cancelling Villa Mutteri reservations. These terms come into effect once the tenant has paid the deposit (first payment), as stipulated in the invoice, for reserving Villa Mutteri, or he/she has paid both the deposit and the final payment at the same time.
RESERVATION AND PAYMENT
After reservation, the owner of Villa Mutteri will issue an invoice to the tenant for paying the rent. All complaints about the invoice have to be made within 7 days of the invoice date.
If the reservation is made more than 70 days prior to the start of your rental, the invoice is issued in two parts: deposit, 20% of the rent (due 7 days after invoice date), and final payment, 80% of the rent (due 70 days prior to the start of your rental). If the reservation is made less than 70 days prior to rental, only one invoice is issued for the full payment. Reservation is considered confirmed when the tenant has paid the deposit or the full payment to our accounts. If the payment is not made before due date, the owner of Villa Mutteri has the right to cancel the reservation. Leaving the invoice unpaid does not constitute a cancellation. Cancellation has to be made in writing to the owner of Villa Mutteri. If required, the tenant has to present a receipt for the payment.
Cancellation has to be made with a written declaration to the owner of Villa Mutteri. A cancellation becomes effective when the owner of Villa Mutteri receives the declaration. If the cancellation is not confirmed to the tenant within 3 days of the cancellation, the tenant is required to confirm the arrival of the declaration by phone. The deposit is withheld if reservation is cancelled. If the cancellation is made after 30 days prior to start of arrival, total rental cost is charged. The tenant has the right to reclaim the rent paid to the owner of Villa Mutteri, excluding the deposit, if the reason for cancellation is that the tenant, or a person sharing his/her household, is inflicted by disease, serious accident or death. In such case, the cancellation has to be made immediately and a written proof of the cause has to be presented (medical certificate etc.) If the cancellation is made after 48 hours prior to start of arrival or during the stay, total rental cost is forfeited. If the tenant alters the start or end dates of the reservation, this action is considered cancellation of the reservation and making of a new reservation.
