Upon receiving a request for renting a property with Mediterranean Rental, the client “tenant” will receive a reservation agreement with instructions for payment of the deposit and key handover.
The property will be held for a period of 3 working days in order for the reservation agreement to be signed and returned and the deposit to be received. Upon receipt of the reservation deposit and signed agreement the reservation will be ﬁnalized and a conﬁrmation will be sent to you. If the signed agreement and reservation deposit is not received within 3 days the booking will be cancelled.
All holiday homes are rented out on a ‘first come first serve’ basis.
Tenant must provide full name, passport number and date of birth for all guests that will be staying at the property. Any guests that we have not received this information on prior to arrival shall not have the right to access the property.

The rental agreement indicates the rental period from ‘Arrival date’ to the ‘Departure date’.

In case any damage occurs during the rental period please inform MR instantly. Claims for damages found to have occurred during the rental stay will be deducted from clients’ security deposit. In case the cost of the damage exceeds the security deposit the tenant will be responsible to pay the additional amount within a period of 14 days.
Tenant should mention MR within 24 hours after check in in the event of damage or non-functioning items. If this is not done MR will assume any damage that is found after check out is caused by the tenant.

PAYMENT OF RENTAL FEE IN ADVANCE
All prices on the MR website are in Euros. Upon booking a fee of 50% of the rental income is to be paid and received by MR in order to confirm the booking. The remaining 50% of the rental sum as well as the security deposit and possibly a final cleaning fee are to be paid no later than 6 weeks before arrival. This is the responsibility of the tenant and no reminder will be sent for this. If the tenant fails to comply with the payment terms this will be considered a breach of contract. In such an event MR is entitled without notice to terminate the reservation with no refund. In case the tenant rents the property less than 6 weeks ahead of arrival the full payment needs to be made at once.
Payment is to be done by bank transfer.
No keys can in any event be handed to tenant in case the full balance (rent, security deposit, cleaning) has been paid to ‘Mediterranean Rental’.

Please report any problems or damages observed in the rental property upon check-in. Unreported problems and /or damages are assumed to have occurred during occupancy and guest can be held responsible for those damages.

A good travel insurance can protect your vacation investment if unforeseen circumstances require you to cancel your trip.
In case a tenant encounters damage or non-functioning items a representative of Mediterranean Rental should be informed immediately. Mediterranean Rental will respond swiftly and rectify any complaints as quick as possible. In the event the damage cannot be resolved Mediterranean Rental reserves the right, following a legitimate complaint to move the tenant to another property of equal price and quality.
Many properties have various technical installations such as a washing machine, dishwasher, microwave, video, television, freezer, tumble dryer, sauna, swimming pool, Jacuzzi, etc. As these items are provided free of charge and subject to wear and tear, the tenant cannot make claims for unforeseen disruptions, damage and failure. This is also applicable in regards to a property’s sanitary installations and plumbing. In the event of any problems with regard to the above, the tenant should immediately inform Mediterranean Rental in order for appropriate action to be arranged by the owner as soon as possible.
ROLE AS A FACILITATOR
Mediterranean Rental IS NOT the owner of the rented properties, but only rents the properties on behalf of the owners and represents the owner’s interests for the rental period. If a rental cannot be completed due to reasons outside of the control of MR, MR is entitled to cancel the lease and refund any money already paid. If suitable MR may in such an event offer an alternative property to the tenant in the same area and at the same price. The tenant may then choose to accept or not accept this alternative.
The laws of Spain as well as the jurisdiction in which the property is located apply.
