The information displayed on the R.E.A. website
The R.E.A. website contains information, images and prices of Accommodation. R.E.A. attempts to ensure that all information published on the website is clear, accurate, complete and not misleading. R.E.A. also tries to ensure that only accommodation that meet R.E.A.’s standards of cleanliness, decor, building safety and finish is listed on the website. However, R.E.A. does not provide the Accommodation and does not guarantee that any particular standards are met.
3.1. R.E.A. reserve the right to remove without notice all or any part of any Accommodation listed on the website for any reason, including but not limited to instances where we conclude in our own sole judgment that it is out of date, inaccurate or breaches the rights of a third party. We will use reasonable efforts to process and act on any complaints we receive about accommodation reasonably and promptly, but R.E.A. will have no liability for the failure to remove any Accommodation listing from its website.
3.2. Tenants are advised to read all documentation concerning accommodation carefully and ensure that they understand the cost of the Accommodation (i.e. the rent and any other costs,) the terms and duration of the Lease Agreement and any restrictions on the Accommodation’s usage.
The tenant may submit a Booking Request for Accommodation through the R.E.A. website or by email. Upon Booking Request the Tenant must select the renting dates and Accommodation that he/she wishes to book. The renting dates provided to R.E.A. will be used in the Lease Agreement. The Tenant will be asked to complete certain personal details and send the ID or Passport copy.
4.1. The landlord can accept or reject any Booking Request. If the Booking Request is rejected, R.E.A. will promptly notify the Tenant and will make reasonable efforts to suggest other suitable accommodation.
4.2. If the Landlord accepts the Booking Request, the Tenant will receive an email confirming that a Booking Request has been submitted with the payment offer and payment instructions. The accommodation is booked once R.E.A. received the full payment offer.
4.3. Upon receiving the full amount of the payment offer from the Tenant R.E.A. will transfer the accommodation deposit to the Landlord within 5 working days in order to reserve the accommodation on behalf of the Tenant / Client.

The deposit will be given back to the tenant when this Agreement expires if all of the terms of this lease agreement with the landlord are fulfilled. The landlord has the right to keep the deposit if the tenant decides to leave or to cancel the Lease Agreement before the rent period of the lease agreement ends.
After the booking is confirmed and 5 working days have passed, the Accommodation Deposit is non-refundable. To cancel a booking request, a Tenant must email R.E.A. with the request and valid reason for cancellation. R.E.A. will not accept cancellations that are done over the phone.
5.1. Post arrival cancellation. If a Tenant cancels within 24 hours after the move-in date, R.E.A. will evaluate the Tenant’s reason for cancellation with the Landlord and attempt to resolve the issue. There must be a significant discrepancy between the description of the photographs or listing information of the accommodation online and the actual condition of the Accommodation in order for the cancellation to be deemed to be for a valid reason. The Tenant must supply R.E.A. with photographic evidence and a written statement proving the claimed significant discrepancy.
5.2. Canceling after the first 24 hours. If a Tenant seeks to cancel more than 24 hours after moving in date, R.E.A. will attempt to assist the Tenant, but once Lease Agreement has been executed between a Tenant and a Landlord, the Tenant is contractually responsible for the obligations undertaken pursuant to that Lease Agreement.
Both parties fully understand the content and legal meaning of the terms in this contract and waive the right for rebuttal of the contract due to any reason. The parties agree that this agreement contains their true and real will and by signing the agreement accept the rights and obligations arising from it.
