This refund will be sent to the tenant by registered mail with acknowledgement of receipt within 15 days of notification of cancellation. After entering the premises : When the cancellation of the contract by the owner takes place during the rental period, it must be duly justified (non-payment of rent, bad cheque issued by the tenant, proven deterioration of the rented premises, complaints from the neighbours, ...).

Force majeure: If the tenant justifies serious motives having the characteristics of force majeure (unforeseeable, irresistible and external event to the tenant) making it impossible to carry out the rental, the contract is automatically cancelled. The amount of rent already paid by the tenant is returned to him, in proportion to the remaining period of occupation. INSURANCE The tenant is obliged to insure the premises entrusted or rented to him. He must therefore check whether his main residential contract provides for the extension of his holiday rental. If the opposite is the case, he must contact his insurance company and ask for the guarantee to be extended or take out a special contract under the "holiday rental" clause. A certificate of insurance will be requested upon entry into the premises or, failing this, a declaration on honour.
