The Tenant undertakes to take good care of the Accommodation.
Access to the Accommodation will only be allowed once a breakage deposit has been paid, which is designed to cover the cost of any repairs necessary after the Tenant’s stay in the Accommodation & the cost of any damages which occur to the Accommodation during their stay. The amount of this breakage deposit is specified in the Contract.
The breakage deposit must be paid upon arrival in the Accommodation by French cheque or by pre-authorised credit card (Visa or Mastercard) if the Tenant cannot provide a French cheque.
Within 48 hours of arriving in the Accommodation, the Tenant should notify BSEF - ILE DE RE by email or by SMS, of any damage to the Accommodation which existed at the time of their arrival (damage, broken objects or faulty equipment). If, at the end of the Tenant’s stay, BSEF – ILE DE RE determines that damage has been caused, or objects broken, or equipment malfunctioning, and this hadn’t been notified to BSEF – ILE DE RE at the beginning of the Tenant’s stay, the damage, breakage or malfunction will be considered to have been caused by the Tenant. The cost of repairing the damage or malfunction or replacing damaged items will be deducted from the breakage deposit.
The breakage deposit will be returned to the Tenant at most two weeks after the end of the Tenant’s stay in the Accommodation (cheque sent back or destroyed or cancellation of the credit card pre-authorisation).
The cost of damages imputable to the Tenant, the price of any objects that need replacing and/or the cost of returning the Accommodation to its original state and/or the cost of any additional cleaning necessary, will be paid by the Tenant in one of the following ways:
- by French cheque - in this case either the original breakage deposit cheque will be returned to the Tenant in exchange for a new cheque in the amount of the damages due OR the original breakage deposit cheque will be cashed. If the cost of damages is less than the original breakage deposit cheque, the difference will be returned to the Tenant by French cheque
- by credit card (transformation of all or part of the pre-authorised transaction into a debit).
If the amount of the original breakage deposit paid is less than the amount due for damages caused, the Tenant agrees to make up the difference.
