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 JRM 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 or credit card. If tenant chooses to pay by credit card a fee of 1,5% applies within the EU. A fee of 2,9% applies for all credit cards outside of the EU.

No keys can in any event be handed to tenant in case the full balance (rent, security deposit, cleaning) has been paid to ‘JustRent Marbella’.

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.

ROLE AS A FACILITATOR:

JRM is not the owner of the rented properties, but only lets 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 JRM, JRM is entitled to cancel the lease and refund any money already paid. If suitable JRM 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.
