About Bookings and Occupancy

Booking conditions may vary between buildings (each manager is an independent operator) but will generally follow the format below:

Conditions of Bookings
Please read these conditions carefully. Each person signing these conditions (“the Guest”) acknowledges and agrees that these conditions apply and extend to any person (also referred to as “Guest”) occupying or visiting the apartment or complex and/or using the facilities in the complex at the invitation of or with the authority of the Guest.

  1. Charges must be paid by cash, bank cheque or credit card before occupancy commences unless special prior arrangements have been made. If payment is made by cheque, receipt is issued subject to such cheque being cleared.

  2. Occupancy starts and finishes on the dates shown on the receipt.

  3. The Guest will be liable for payment of any charges incurred by any Guest together with all replacements and necessary costs for any damage or loss to the apartment and its contents or the Body Corporate property caused by any Guest.

  4. The apartment must not be used for any unlawful purpose.

  5. Guests must only park cars in the designated areas.

  6. Only the number of people shown on the receipt may stay in the apartment overnight.

  8. Neither the Body Corporate, the Manager nor the apartment owner is liable for any damage or loss of property which a Guest may sustain while on the complex.

  10. There is no refund for early departure.

  11. The Manager may inspect the apartment at any time with reasonable notice and at any time without notice if the Manager is of the opinion that there has been a breach of these conditions.

  12. The Manager and the apartment owner are not responsible for any misdescription of the apartment.

  14. The Guest authorises the manager to charge any credit card for any loss, damage or monetary contribution for which any Guest is liable under this document or otherwise.

  15. If the occupancy ends or is terminated, the Guest must immediately vacate the apartment. The Manager is authorised to do whatever is required to enforce the eviction of any Guest and removal of Guests property.

Cancellation policy may vary between buildings but generally follows a standard format.
