The tenancy is concluded on the basis of a seasonal furnished rental. The premises cannot be used as a primary nor secondary residence, and the tenant cannot use the premises to engage in any commercial activity, handicraft business or professional activity. Consequently, the tenant is not entitled to a renewal nor compensation in addition to any rights that the terms of the present contract provide. Accordingly, the seasonal nature of the present rental means it is covered by the framework of exclusions laid out in article 2 of French law n° 89-462 of 6 July 1989, and is not subject to any other provisions of this law. The present contract is therefore subject to articles n° 1714 to 1751 of the French Civil Code; articles n° L.324-1 and following of the French Tourism Code; and the French decree of 29 December 1976, as long as they are not in opposition with the conditions as later stated.
The rental is concluded for the agreed duration between the guest and the reservation agent. It will end by the act of the law itself upon expiration of the fixed terms of the particular conditions, without requiring notice to be delivered. The rental cannot be extended without Squarebreak’s prior written agreement. Upon expiration of the agreement, the tenant must vacate the premises and return the keys to Squarebreak.
An agreement is formed when the tenant makes an online reservation, accompanied by the deposit, which is equal to 25% (twenty-five percent) of the total amount of the reservation, more than 30 (thirty) days of making the reservation or equal to 100% (hundred percent) of the rent less than 30 (thirty) days prior arrival.
Squarebreak refuses the right to deny entry into the premises if the deposit and remainder of the cost of the reservation were not paid 30 (thirty) days prior to entry.
The tenant and Squarebreak must adhere to the following conditions:
- If cancellation is made by the tenant more than 1 (one) month before the rental period, they will lose their 25% (twenty-five percent) deposit made to Squarebreak.
- If cancellation is made by the tenant less than 1 (one) month before the rental period, they will lose the full rent paid to Squarebreak.
- If cancellation is made by Squarebreak, they will return the entirety of any sum due to the tenant.
The fees for rent, charges, and the security deposit fee are indicated to the guest by the reservation agent during the booking process.
The parties agree that the aforementioned rental fees include the payment of rental charges, and the provision of the following services:
- secured online reservation
- availability of reservation team for support
- personalised welcome
- provision of linens (sheets and towels)
- professional housekeeping prior to and following the stay
- concierge service
According to articles n° L.2333-26 and following of the French General Local Authorities Code, and applying the City Council’s decree of , the aforementioned rental fees also cover payment of the occupancy tax, the amount of which is fixed at per night and per adult older than 13 (thirteen) years.
Within a week prior arrival and before the handing over of the keys, the tenant will proceed to a credit card imprint (amount frozen on the guest’s bank account but not charged) with Squarebreak for a fixed sum as outlined during the booking process, acting as a security deposit to cover any potential damages incurred to the property and/or the furniture and/or other equipment in the property or other fixtures of the rented premises. Any object depreciated, broken, lost, or damaged will have to be replaced or refunded to Squarebreak with its value of replacement by the tenant.
This non-interest-bearing security deposit in no case shall be considered as part of the rent payment. After returning the keys, and in the absence of damages reported by either party, the security deposit will be released in full immediately. Failing that, the security deposit will be returned post deduction of any costs incurred from repairs or replacements attributed to the tenant and/or other occupants, at the very latest within 60 (sixty) days following the tenant’s departure. If Squarebreak is unable to inspect the property at the time of the tenant’s departure, the security deposit will be retained until the property has been inspected and found to be damage free, and returned within thirty days at the latest, following the tenant’s departure. The return of keys to Squarebreak at the end of the rental period does not supersede the waiver of claims for rental repairs against the security deposit if the damage incurred is the work of the tenant and/or other occupants, if it can be proved that the damages were made by the tenant.
If the amount of the deposit is found to be insufficient to cover the damages, the tenant commits to settle the difference between the deposit and the actual cost of repairs for damages to the premises or contents upon Squarebreak’s written request.
Without the prior agreement of Squarebreak, the premises as object of the present rental on no account must be occupied by a number of people approved by the reservation agent, according to the maximum occupancy. Where necessary, Squarebreak can refuse entry to the premises. In the case of non-compliance with the number of occupants, Squarebreak reserves the right to withhold the deposit to repair damage caused by the excessive occupation of the premises.
Squarebreak offers optional ADAR insurance available during the reservation (see current price list).
