Here are our terms and conditions about working with the Long Term Rentals in France team to promote your property in France for long terms lets. We hope that you find our terms honest and straightforward, which is very much how we like to work.
We are a small, independent company that only has one business rule: we only like working with people we like working with. We would rather lose a commission than arrange a rental for a client who we think won't look after a property or will not honour a contract. Similarly, we dont want to arrange rentals in a property, if we don't think that the clients will be happy with the condition of the house and the Owners will ensure that problems are corrected.
We created this business because there was a gap in the market for providing long term rental accommodation for Foreign nationals in France. We have both rented properties in France and we have rented out our own properties to clients in France. So we have an understanding of both sides.
Long Term Rentals in France provides independent Property Owners with an online marketing and reservation service, with the goal of sourcing rental clients and securing bookings.
Long Term Rentals in France does not provide Property Management, Maintenance, Cleaning, Key-holding or ancillary services to the properties advertised. The Property Owner needs to arrange for these services separately.
Long Term Rentals in France is not a travel agent, relocation agency or a rentals letting agency. We act on behalf of the Property Owner as a booking agent and online marketing service. Our services are limited to marketing the rental property, drafting rental contracts and undertaking routine background checks on the suitability of any potential tenants.
Long Term Rentals in France does not charge property owners for advertising their property on the website. Only when a reservation is made, is a booking administration fee levied. The booking administration fee is 12% + TVA of the total rental price. The booking administration fee for long term rentals is capped at a maximum of one month’s rent plus TVA.
The Property will be advertised on Long Term Rentals in France and our sister website Go Languedoc. We also work with a number of affiliate companies, relocation agencies and specialist websites to further market the rental property.
The Property Owner is free to advertise the Property elsewhere and accept bookings at any time throughout the year, except where a booking has already been arranged and approved by the Property Owner through Long Term Rentals in France for the same period.
