If a third party enters into the lease, he and the previous tenant are jointly and severally liable to the landlord for the rent and additional costs arising from the third party's entry. The tenant is advised to take out cancellation insurance.

5. Termination by landlord The landlord may terminate the contractual relationship before or after the start of the rental period without observing a notice period if the tenant fails to make the agreed payments (down payment, final payment and deposit) despite a prior reminder or otherwise contravenes the contract in such a way that the landlord cannot expect a continuation of the contractual relationship. In this case, the lessor may demand compensation from the lessee for the costs incurred up to the termination and lost profit.

6. Cancellation of the contract due to exceptional circumstances The rental contract may be terminated by either party if the performance of the contract is significantly impeded, endangered or affected due to force majeure that was not foreseen when the contract was concluded. Both contracting parties are released from their contractual obligations. However, you must reimburse the other contracting party for services already rendered.

The tenant is obliged to pay compensation for attributable damage to the furnishings, rented rooms or the building as well as the facilities belonging to the rented rooms or the building, if and insofar as this is attributable to him or his companions or visitors. The tenant must immediately report any damage to the rented room to the landlord or a designated contact person (property management), unless he is obliged to remedy it himself. The tenant is liable to pay compensation for any consequential damage caused by failure to report in time. Waste, ashes, harmful liquids and the like must not be disposed of in the sewers. If blockages occur in the sewage pipes due to non-compliance with these provisions, the person responsible shall bear the cost of repair. In case of any malfunction in the facilities and equipment of the rented property, the tenant is obliged to do everything reasonable himself to remedy the malfunction or minimise any damage. The tenant is obliged to immediately notify the landlord or the property manager of any defects in the leased property. Failure to do so will not entitle the tenant to any claims for non-performance of the contractual services (in particular, no claims for rent reduction).

Liability of the lessor The lessor is liable for the correctness of the description of the rental object and is obliged to properly provide and maintain the contractually agreed services throughout the rental period. The lessor's liability for material damage resulting from improper conduct is excluded, unless it is based on an intentional or grossly negligent breach of duty by the lessor or his deputy agent. The lessor is not liable in cases of force majeure (e.g. fire, flood etc.)tc.).

Parties and celebrations are not allowed. The house is equipped with smoke detectors. It is not allowed to fry fish in the house or to prepare gourmets or other smoke-producing dishes.
