Below are the Terms and Conditions that must be agreed to when making a reservation with River Ridge Rentals.
Payment Terms: A deposit of 50% of the total reservation amount is due upon reservation. The remaining 50% is due 60 days prior to arrival. If the check-in date is within 60 days, the full amount will be due upon reservation. Reservations are not confirmed until payment has been made. If the initial payment is paid via credit card, we will use that same credit card to process the second payment unless otherwise notified in writing. Payment can be made via Visa, MasterCard, or electronic check. We do not accept American Express, Discover, cash or checks. All funds including reservation/security deposits, prepaid guest charges may be placed in an interest-bearing account on which the interest shall accrue to the benefit of OWNER’S AGENT.
Damage Deposit or Waiver: Either a refundable damage deposit or a non-refundable damage waiver is required with each occupancy.
Damage Deposit: Your damage deposit will be refunded to you in the manner with which you paid within 30 days of check-out. Your damage deposit will be adjusted for any damages to the property including but not limited to dirty dishes, carpet stains, broken items, lost keys ($10), lost garage remote ($50), etc. Unauthorized early check-ins or late check-outs as well as unauthorized pets will result in a fine of $250 in addition to any associated costs. Should we find evidence that smoking occurred within the property, a $250 fine plus the cost of odor removal will be deducted from your damage deposit.
Damage Waiver: The damage waiver covers routine wear and tear and minor damages (broken dishes, stained linens, etc) but does not cover any malicious damages or any of the above mentioned fines (smoking, unauthorized early check-ins or late check-outs, unauthorized pets). You will still be held liable for any malicious damages or fines and we reserve the right to charge your card for any damages.
Cancellation: Reservation deposits are non-refundable. This reservation may be canceled in writing with a refund to the tenant ONLY if a replacement tenant is secured. The refund amount will be for the newly negotiated rental rate, less a cancellation fee of $250.00. We are not responsible for loss, delay, or expenses incurred due to weather, road closures, flight cancellations/delays or any other unforeseen circumstances. We highly recommend travel insurance!
