Agreements made regarding the provision of apartments are subject to the following terms and conditions of City West Apartments (hereinafter referred to as "landlords").

Reserved apartments are available to the tenant from 15.00 clock and must be vacated by 11 clock on the departure day.

2. Duration of the lease
Unless otherwise agreed, a minimum rental period of 1 month applies. The maximum rental period is basically 6 months. A further accommodation beyond 6 months requires an arrangement with the landlord and corresponding availability of the living space and a new lease has to be concluded. There is no entitlement to accommodation for a period of 6 months.3. Prices
The excellent prices (monthly rentals) are inclusive prices and include the legal value added tax and all incidental costs. These include u.a. the cost of insurance, cleaning, garbage collection, water, electricity and internet.

If this does not happen, the tenant's claim for the booked apartment will expire and the lease expires. Subsequent monthly rentals must be transferred to the landlord's bank account no later than 3 working days to the end of the month. Follow-up rentals can also be paid 3 working days to the end of the month, by prior arrangement with the landlord, in cash, by credit card (American Express, Mastercard, Visa) or by EC / Maestro Card.
5. Cancellation conditions
In case of a cancellation up to 4 weeks before arrival no cancellation fees will be charged, for cancellations that will be made later, always a complete monthly rent will be charged as a cancellation fee. The landlord tries after a cancellation by the tenant to convey the apartment to the best of his conscience in order to keep down the costs in the interest of the tenant and to reimburse part of the costs in the event of success. However, this does not give rise to a claim. Already paid monthly rents over a period of more than 1 month have been made and the deposit will be fully refunded.
As the tenant always has to pay at least 1 month rent in advance, he has in principle 1 month entitlement to the booked apartment.6. Resignation of the landlord

- dwellings misleading or misrepresenting material facts, e.g. in the person of the renter or the purpose, to be booked;
