Rental terms and conditions

RENTAL AGREEMENT (the “Agreement”)

Between You (the “Tenant”) and MTLVacationRentals (the “Landlord”), in which the Tenant agrees to the following

All of our apartments are fully licensed and are certified by the City of Montréal. They also received a certification by the Québec authority on tourism known as the Corporation de l’Industrie Touristique du Québec (CITQ). Without those certifications an accommodation is illegal and can be closed at any moment. This Agreement is subject to the Act respecting tourist accommodation establishments and the laws of Québec, and is not subject to the Act respecting the Régie du logement and its regulations.

1- Conclusion of the agreement:

The reservation becomes effective when a written confirmation is issued to the Tenant by the Landlord upon receipt of the required deposit and after final verification approval by the Landlord.

 

2- Payment of Balance:

The balance of the rental must have been paid in full before the Tenant has access to the apartment.

 

3- Capacity:

This Agreement is established for a specific number of people. If the number of people on the premises exceeds the number specified in the renting form, the Landlord may refuse these additional people and/or charged the Tenant a daily fee for each individual for the period of their stay. The Agreement concluded between the Tenant and the Landlord may, in no circumstances, be, even partially, used by a third party, either natural or legal person, unless otherwise agreed to in writing by the Landlord.

Any violation of this requirement could lead to the immediate cancellation of the reservation and the Landlord will keep the full amount of the rental’s proceeds. NO REFUND will be issued in this circumstance.

 

4- Rental Period:

The Agreement is concluded for a limited term and the Tenant may in no circumstances exercise any right to remain in the premises following the end of this term.

If the Tenant does not get in contact with the Landlord or his representative before 4pm on the day following the planned arrival date, the reservation becomes null and void. The landlord can then immediately take over the apartment. In such circumstances, the Landlord is entitled to the full payment for the planned rental period.

The time of departure must be before 11h00 AM on the date of departure specified on the booking. Late departures are not permitted unless a written agreement has been reached with the Landlord.
