RESIDENCE AND USE
As specified and enforced by the Owner of the property (The Landlord) and/or relevant civil authorities:
The Landlord shall have the right by himself or by his Agent and/or servant periodically to inspect the interior of the Premises, by prior appointment.
The tenant shall permit prospective tenants and Purchasers to view the Premises at all reasonable times and by prior appointment.
The tenant or any member of his household or any visitor(s) shall not commit any illegal activities on the Premises.

The tenant shall not do, or omit to do anything, which could damage the Premises, or render any insurance policy in respect of the Premises void or voidable.
The Tenant undertakes that neither he nor any member of his household nor any visitor(s) to the Premises nor domestic servant(s) shall, by the making of noise or otherwise, in anyway obstruct, annoy or interfere with the rights of and peaceful occupation by any other person in the vicinity of the Premises. Should the tenant, or visitor, or domestic servant(s) not comply to the above, then their immediate removal from the property shall be enforced by the Landlord at the tenant’s expense.
In the event of the Tenant failing to pay the rental due hereunder on the due date thereof, or should the Tenant commit a breach on any other term or condition, the Landlord shall have the right to give written notice to the Tenant requiring him to pay the rental or remedy such breach, as the case may be, within 24 hours. Then the Landlord shall have the right to terminate this lease and to retake possession of the Premises without prejudice to any claim which the Landlord may have for rent and/or damages and the Landlord may proceed by way of motion or otherwise in any competent Court to compel ejectment.
Without prejudice to all or any of the Landlord’s rights granted hereunder, should the Tenant fail to pay the said rental or any other sum(s) which may become due by the Tenant to the Landlord on due date, then in either or both of such events, penalty interest shall accrue at the rate of prime overdraft as laid down by commercial banks calculated monthly. In any event, a 20% pa penalty shall be levied against payments made after the due date.
Should any attorney be instructed to collect any overdue amount(s) owing by the Tenant or take legal proceedings for the recovery of any amount(s) due or becoming by the Tenant to the Landlord in terms hereof, the Tenant shall pay all attorney and client charges including collection commission.
The Tenant hereby undertakes and agrees that except by and with the prior written consent of the Landlord first having been obtained, he shall not sub-let the premises or any part thereof nor shall he assign or cede the whole or any portion of his rights under this Agreement. He shall not allow the Premises or any portion thereof to be used or occupied by any person other than the Tenant (even though no rental or other consideration is received for such use or occupation).
The Tenant hereby undertakes and agrees that the Premises shall be occupied solely and exclusively as a self-catering residence and that no business or profession shall be conducted therein. Only the Tenant and nominated persons as per the Accommodation Daddy Tenant Information Sheet shall be entitled to occupy the Premises unless otherwise agreed upon in writing by the Landlord.
The Tenant hereby undertakes and agrees that neither he nor any other person shall mark, paint or drive nails or affix screws into the doors, walls or floors or any other part of the Premises without the prior written consent of the Landlord nor shall he or any other person deface or damage the doors, walls or floors or any other part of the Premises.
The Tenant acknowledges that he will be liable for all damage to any part of the Premises caused by any act, omission or neglect of himself, his family, servants, visitors or whomsoever otherwise.
The Tenant hereby undertakes and agrees that he will not make any structural or cosmetic alteration to the Premises of whatsoever nature without the prior written consent of the Landlord.

The limitation of the Landlord’s liability as aforesaid, shall apply where such damage is sustained either inside or out the Premises.
The Landlord shall not be responsible for any injury or inconvenience, accident or damage which may at any time be suffered by the Tenant, members of his family, his employees, servants, clients or visitors or any of his property by reason of act, neglect, default or howsoever otherwise caused, or any servant of the Landlord or by whosoever or howsoever otherwise caused and whether willful, negligent or howsoever otherwise. In particular the Landlord shall not be responsible for any loss which the Tenant and/or any of the said parties may suffer through theft or burglary whether or not such loss be occasioned by any act, neglect or default of any servant of the Landlord.
The Landlord shall not be liable or responsible for any noise, nuisance or inconvenience to the Tenant, members of his family, his employees, servants or visitors or any damage to any of his property resulting from building, road, utilities construction, maintenance, renovation or demolition in or near to the property (a neighbouring apartment or home, common/public areas within a sectional title complex, public roads, pavements, gardens and open spaces).
In the event of the Landlord canceling this lease and the Tenant disputing the Landlord’s right to cancel and remaining in occupation of the Premises, the Tenant shall, pending settlement of such dispute either by negotiation or litigation continue to pay rental provided for in this lease/rental agreement and the Landlord shall be entitled to accept and recover such payments and the acceptance thereof shall be without prejudice to and shall not in any way whatsoever effect the Landlord’s claim for cancellation then in dispute.

PAYMENT, CANCELLATION AND MANAGEMENT OPERATIONS
As applicable to the client/tenant and specified by Accommodation Daddy
CHECK IN & CHECK OUT
Check-in is between 14h00 and 16h30 on the day of arrival.
Check-out time is before 10h00 on the day of departure.
Right of admission reserved.
We have an early or late check in fee of R250.00 for arrivals between 16h30 and 07h00. This fee should be settled directly with the consultant on arrival. We try to accommodate earlier check ins and late check outs but these are dependent on operational circumstances (eg. someone is checking in on the same day that you are departing necessitating a punctual check out for servicing and cleaning). Exceptions to these times are made entirely at our discretion. It is safer to book a full extra day if an early check in or late check out is of critical importance to you.
South African immigration laws require all visitors’ passports to have at least two blank pages and to be valid at least six months from your planned date of departure from South Africa. The law is rigourously enforced so please check your passports without delay!

CHANGES AND CANCELLATION BY Accommodation Daddy
In the exceptional circumstance where Accommodation Daddy can no longer provide you with the property booked or the same Rental Period (for reasons other than Force Majeure), you will have the following choices:
(i) Accept an alternative property that Accommodation Daddy is able to offer to you for the same rental period
(ii) Accept the change in the rental period proposed by Accommodation Daddy.
Accommodation Daddy will consider refunding the sums paid if it has not been able to provide you with one of the options above to your satisfaction.
Accommodation Daddy shall not be liable for any cancellation charges for travel arrangements or any further claims by you or anyone else in your party.
KEY & BREAKAGE DEPOSIT
Credit card details are required for the above prior to check in. If payment is made by transfer or cash deposit it is payable in advance and will be added onto your rental amount and refunded within seven days after check-out should everything be in order.
The amount for the key and breakage deposit is ZAR (see your documentation specific to your booking and property)
Any loss or damage to the property and/or its contents, accidental or otherwise, must be paid for.
Any lost keys or keys not returned as per our instructions will result in locks & keys being replaced and you being held accountable for such charges. This is in the interest of security.
Due attention is therefore advised. Should such damage or loss be more than the Key & Breakage deposit, you will forfeit your deposit and still be liable for the balance of such loss and/or damage.
