AUTHORITY AND LIABILITY OF AGENT:
RENTER acknowledges that OWNER has duly appointed Water Pointe Holdings, LLC, dba Water Pointe Realty Group as AGENT, and AGENT has negotiated this LEASE with OWNER'S authorization, and, if executed by AGENT, that this LEASE is executed with OWNER'S express consent and authorization. RENTER agrees to and does hereby indemnify and hold harmless the AGENT, its employees, and assigns, from any and all claims, suits, damages, costs, losses and expenses arising from this LEASE and the management of the LEASED PREMISES. RENTER agrees to look solely to OWNER in the event of any legal dispute involving this LEASE or the LEASED PREMISES.
NON-REFUNDABLE PAYMENTS, CANCELLATION, AND FORFEITURE:
Travel Insurance and Damage Insurance is non-refundable. ALL Advance Reservation Hold Deposits (paid before LEASE execution), if any, are non-refundable. The FIRST payment for all LEASES is non-refundable.
Subject to the foregoing non-refundable payments schedule, RENTER may cancel this Rental Lease Agreement by giving at least 120 days written notice before the Start Date. ALL cancellations are subject to an administrative cancellation fee of $100.00. In the event the cancellation occurs within the 120-day time frame immediately prior to Start Date, ALL amounts previously paid and ALL amounts remaining due as rent, taxes, fees, and miscellaneous charges shall be forfeited by RENTER to OWNER / AGENT as liquidated damages for having withheld the LEASED PREMISES from the rental market.
COUNTY AND STATE SALES TAXES:
Changes to taxes by governing agencies are outside the control of OWNER or AGENT. In the event tax rates are changed prior to the Start Date or during the term of the LEASE, RENTER is responsible for any tax increases.
LATE FEE, RENTAL PAYMENT DEFAULT:
If, before the Start Date, RENTER fails or refuses to timely remit any payment that becomes due hereunder at the time and place provided, then RENTER will be charged a Late Fee in the amount of $50.00. In the event such failure or refusal to remit payment continues for as long as five (5) days, the OWNER or AGENT may terminate this Vacation Rental Agreement, and immediately re-let the Leased Premises without notice to RENTER. In such event RENTER will forfeit all payments remitted as agreed liquidated damages.
If, after the Start Date, RENTER fails or refuses to timely remit any payment that becomes due hereunder at the time and place provided, then RENTER will be subject to a Late Fee. In the event such failure or refusal to remit payment continues for as long as five (5) days, then OWNER or AGENT may re-enter and repossess the LEASED PREMISES and re-let the same and receive the rent therefrom without notice to RENTER. In such event RENTER will forfeit all payments paid prior to the default.
AGENT requires a security deposit to be paid by RENTER before check-in as security for the faithful performance by RENTER of all the terms and conditions of this lease. After the end of the lease, within 30 days, the OWNER or AGENT shall return the security deposit to the RENTER less any deductions for lost, missing, or damaged items from the LEASED PREMISES or other claims under the terms of this LEASE. RENTER acknowledges it is RENTER'S responsibility to provide AGENT with the correct mail address for Security Deposit return. RENTER will be responsible for any costs involved in re-issuing security deposit checks due to an incorrect address.
LIABILITY FOR CONDITION AND CONTENTS OF LEASED PREMISES:
Neither OWNER nor AGENT makes any representation as to the condition, contents, or description of the LEASED PREMISES. AGENT makes best effort to ensure the LEASED PREMISES description is accurate at the time of LEASE execution. RENTER may inspect the LEASED PREMISES prior to LEASE execution when vacant. RENTER hereby accepts delivery of the LEASED PREMISES and all PERSONAL PROPERTY in its current "as is" condition, and releases OWNER and AGENT from all liability. No rental rate adjustments will be granted to RENTER related to the condition, contents, or description of the LEASED PREMISES and all PERSONAL PROPERTY located therein.
RENTER acknowledges and agrees that AGENT does not maintain any immediately available inventory of other rental properties and is therefore NOT able to relocate RENTER to any alternate rental property if RENTER is unwilling to occupy the LEASED PREMISES on arrival.
