Non-Refundable Damage Fee (Details)
“Lessee” as referred to in this agreement is the person/persons listed on rental agreement and
referred to commonly as “tenant, guest, renter”. A nonrefundable Damage Waiver Fee is
required for this reservation. Lessor requires a valid Visa, Master Card or America Express
number on file in addition to the Damage Waiver Fee. The Damage Waiver Fee is a
nonrefundable Fee that relieves Lessee of the cost for unintentional and incidental damage to
the Rental Property and its contents, not to exceed the amount of coverage listed on the Rental
Agreement. The Damage Waiver Fee does not cover intentional damage, theft, unauthorized
entry into the owner's supply closet, unauthorized pets, extensive cleaning required at checkout,
smoking, exceeding occupancy limits or parking limits, and any other charges/polices in
Lessor's Rental Policies and Rental Agreement including any fines imposed on Manager by the
City, County, State or Home Owner Association as the result of violation of any law, ordinance,
rule or regulation or any fines or costs levied against Lessee or visitors of Lessee (Excess
Damage Costs). Lessee will be notified of any Excess Damage Costs in writing. Any Excess
Damage Costs will also be charged immediately to Lessee's credit card. Lessee assumes full
responsibility for any items found to be missing and any damage due to misuse, negligence or
action on Lessee's or Lessee's visitor’s part, except in the case of normal wear-and-tear
reported to Lessor within 48 hours of Check-in. The Damage Waiver Fee does not substitute for
Lessee’s responsibility to leave The Property in appropriate condition. The Damage Waiver Fee
does not negate Lessee’s responsibilities as a responsible renter, nor does it relieve Lessee from
responsibility for intentionally destructive acts of Lessee or other members of Lessee’s party
while in occupancy. Lessee must notify Lessor of any damage or theft to the unit during
Lessee’s occupancy or upon vacating. The Property will be carefully inspected after Lessee’s
departure and any damage, theft or other incidents which occur during Lessee’s occupancy and
which have not been disclosed to Lessor prior to Lessee’s leaving will remain Lessee’s
obligation. The maximum aggregate amount of accidental damage that is covered by the
Damage Waiver Fee is listed in your Rental Agreement. Any damage in excess of this amount
remains the responsibility of Lessee. All waivers of theft or damage will be administered by
Lessor at The Property. Lessor will have the sole authority to determine the nature and extent
of damages, necessary repairs and eligibility for the waiver of liability described herein. The
Covered Lessee must report any theft or damage to The Property or its contents prior to
checkout or any otherwise applicable damage waiver will be void.
TERM OF COVERAGE: The waiver takes effect upon check-in on the booked arrival date to The
Property, together with receipt of payment of the waiver fee, at or before check-in. All
coverage shall terminate upon normal check-out time of The Property or the departure of the
Covered Lessee, whichever occurs first.
DAMAGE WAIVER FEE CONDITIONS: The plan will not include liability for damage or theft
resulting from:
• Intentional acts of a Covered Lessee.
• Gross negligence or willful and wanton conduct.
• Theft of or damage to any personal property owned by, or brought onto the premises by
Lessee/Lessee’s guest(s).
