Terms & Conditions - Mallorcahome

1. Bookings:

All bookings require a written (e-mail or fax) statement from the tenant. Your booking is only a confirmed booking on payment of a non refundable deposit (approx. 10% of the total cost), this booking deposit has to be paid via international bank transfer. We hold the booking for you for 5 working days, if we do not receive the deposit (or a copy of the bank transfer receipt) during this time, the booking is automatically cancelled and the cancellation charges will be applied. After we have received the receipt of the deposit, we will send you a confirmation and a briefing with detailed information of the meeting point as well as name and telephone number (mobile) of the Mallorcahome representative that will meet you and assist you during the check-in/out.

2. Payment:

Down payment:
A down payment of around 10% needs to be paid within 5 day after the booking has been confirmed by Mallorcahome. The amount may be paid either via regular bank transfer or PayPal. ALL transfer costs or bank charges need to be covered by the sending party.

Remaining balance:
After you have paid the down payment, the remaining balance must be paid either
a) in cash in EUROS upon arrival/check-in to the Mallorcahome Representative or
b) via bank transfer to a nominated bank account. In this case all transfer costs need to be covered by the sending party.
The method of payment depends on the booked property. We do not accept credit card payments or any other methods of payment.

4. Cancellation or Changes by Mallorcahome:

We accept all bookings in good faith on behalf of the Owner. In the unlikely event that the Owner, for any reason, has to make alterations to his/her accommodation, we will endeavour to offer you comparable accommodation.

This means you must keep all furniture and fittings, (inside or outside the property) in the same state of repair and condition as at the start of your stay - You must leave the property in the same state of cleanliness and general order in which you found it, save normal ware and tear - If you break these conditions the Owner can make an additional cleaning charge and/or make a claim against you for repair or loss as a result of damage caused. You are expected to show due consideration for other people as well. If you abuse the property or display rude, dangerous or offensive behaviour towards the Owner/Caretaker or other third party, the Owner/Caretaker can refuse to allow you possession of the property or ask you to leave the accommodation before the end of your stay. If this happens we will treat your booking as cancelled and you will not be entitled to a refund.

A refundable security deposit is required to cover any possible damages, lost items or excessive cleaning of the property after your holiday. This security deposit must be paid in cash upon check-in. The deposit will be refunded in full minus deductions (if any) on check-out once the Mallorcahome Representative or the property owner is satisfied that all is in best order. Security deposits may vary depending on the type of the property. The respective amount is mentioned on the individual object-ID page and in the confirmation. Higher deposits may be required in special cases, i.e. when you are bringing a pet.

13. Swimming Pools:

Swimming pools may not be open all year. Normally pools in Mallorca are available from mid-May to the end of September.Pools are generally not heated.

14. Building works:

Building work and noise are unavoidable as the demand for new accommodation increases. It is the case that some resort areas featured in this website are still being developed and therefore there is a possibility of building work or construction work, which may be carried out by local authorities or private developers in the area of the rented property. Many of our accommodations are also situated in residential areas and work may begin in/at a neighbouring property over which we have no control, nor are we given prior notice. However, in any event we will always do our best to inform you of the facts in advance but if this is not possible, please accept our apologies.

15. Damages and complaints

All damages and problems must be reported immediately to your representative in order for us to have the opportunity to solve the problem right away. Missing items, broken devices usually can be replaced within a reasonable amount of time. Should the representative however, not be able to solve the problem, he/she will hand you out a complaint form. Please fill out the form truthfully, sign it and hand it back to the representative. Each form has a perforated section at the bottom, which will remain with the representative as a receipt. The supervisor will then immediately send the form to us and we will get in touch with you. It is important that you report your complaint locally to your representative and not after your departure or when you are back at home. We need to be given the opportunity to solve the problem when it has occurred and the representative needs to inspect the problem.   Complaints after you holiday will not be accepted nor will refunds be paid out in this case.  Should you representative not be available for some reason, you will have to contact us immediately.
