Thank you for choosing Landfolk.com!
These terms and conditions apply to all services that Landfolk A/S, Bülowsgade 68, 3 tv, 8000 Aarhus C ("Landfolk", "us", "we" or "our") offers you as a guest when you use our platform (“Platform”) for arranging holiday home rentals. When you create a user profile as a guest on our Platform, and when you complete a booking, you also accept these terms and conditions.
We have aimed at communicating terms as clearly and distinctly as possible below. Should you happen to still have questions, then please don't hesitate to reach out to us via email@example.com .
Our mission is to create a Platform which enables private rental of holiday homes easy and manageable for both guests and hosts. As a Platform, Landfolk handles the dissemination work in relation to the rental of holiday homes on behalf of hosts and at their expense and risk. When you book a holiday home on our Platform, an agreement is therefore established between you and the host concerning the rental of the holiday home in question for the selected period and on the terms stated in the notice on the Platform, with the addition of the rights and obligations between you and the host, which follows from these terms.
We therefore assume no responsibility for any disputes between you and the host, and do not engage in such, just as we do not guarantee the host's compliance with any applicable law.
2) Use of the holiday home
The holiday home may only be used for holiday purposes, unless otherwise agreed with the host, and with only the maximum number of guests as stated on the Platform, including children. Pets may only be brought when stated as permitted by the host on the Platform and further stated in the entered into rental agreement, where you have actively stated that you will bring pets during your booking.
The holiday home must be used in accordance with these terms and any guidelines that the host has adopted for the use of the holiday home, when you have been informed of these in connection with your booking.
Should the holiday home be used in violation of these terms and conditions, including the above guidelines, the legislation in force at any time, to the inconvenience of the area's residents and guests, in violation of public order in general or for purposes other than holiday purposes, then the rental agreement shall without notice, and with immediate effect, be revoked by the host.
3) Condition and facilities of the holiday home
The holiday homes on the Platform are privately owned and are decorated according to the host's personal style, taste and needs. The holiday homes are therefore not the same, just as furniture and equipment will vary.
However, a holiday home will - unless otherwise stated in the notice - be equipped with:
- stove, coffee machine, cutlery and kitchen utensils for the permitted number of guests as well as basic goods, such as spices, salt and oil, dishwashing liquid or tabs (if the holiday home has a dishwasher), garbage bags and basic cleaning products
- toilet, cold and hot water, hand shower / shower cubicle and toilet paper
- vacuum cleaner
- heating source such as radiators or heat pump
- beds, duvets and pillows
- waste container or similar. As these are emptied on an ongoing basis, the waste container cannot be expected to be empty upon arrival.
Similar to your own home, the holiday home can be equipped with other things than the above. If there is equipment in the holiday home, including TV, washing machine, dryer or dishwasher that does not work, we are unable to guarantee that the repair can be done during your stay.
We also point out that if the holiday home, according to the listing, has a TV, it is not certain that there are TV channels or streaming services available to you. If the host's streaming services are available to you, it is not permitted to make purchases, rent movies or the like unless the host expressly has agreed to this.
If the holiday home has a wood burning stove, firewood will be provided to light the first fire, so you can get started with the holiday fun right upon arrival. Should you care to use more firewood, you must purchase this yourself. Should there be more firewood at the holiday home, then needed to light the first fire, it is the host's private property, and may only be used if the host has given permission.
If you are in need of special equipment, including equipment for children, you can prior to entering into an agreement contact Landfolk at firstname.lastname@example.org and after entering into an agreement contact the host directly and inquire if the holiday home has such equipment.
The holiday home will be clean at the time of arrival, but the following may unfortunately occur if the holiday home has been empty for a shorter or longer period:
- There may be cobwebs in the holiday home upon arrival as it can quickly appear from hour to hour
- upon arrival it may smell damp and stuffy, this can be remedied by ventilating thoroughly and then turning on the heat
- the windows in the holiday home may appear dirty and there may be sand, flies or the like upon arrival, depending on wind and weather conditions.
If the before mentioned exceeds what can reasonably be expected, or the cleaning condition is otherwise unsatisfactory, complaints may be made in accordance with point 6 below.
It may occur that previous guests have had pets in the holiday home, even though pets are not allowed in the specific holiday home. In this regard, we point out that any allergic reactions as a result of this does not give the guest the right to cancel or terminate the rental agreement, just as Landfolk is not responsible for allergic reactions. In general, we recommend that guests with dust allergies should choose houses with wood or tile floors.
In addition, nuisances from construction noise or other noise from the surrounding area of the holiday home may occur. Host or Landfolk can not be held responsible for this. \
4) Payment terms
Once your booking has been confirmed, a binding agreement has been entered for the rental of the holiday home in question, and the full payment will be charged immediately thereafter by Landfolk via the chosen payment solution. The booking is confirmed when you receive a written confirmation via the e-mail address you provided us with during your booking.
Should the full rental fee not be paid on time, the rental agreement will be terminated with immediate effect. You can also read more about the terms of cancellation after payment has taken place in section 6 below.
All rental prices on Landfolks Platform include general utilities (in the form of electricity, heating and water).
The price also includes final cleaning, so you don't have to spend the last day of the holiday cleaning. However, see more about cleaning under section 5.
5) Other obligations to the host
The holiday home must be used in accordance with these terms and any guidelines that the host has adopted for the use of the holiday home, should you have been informed of these in connection with a booking.
Arrival and departure time
The rental certificate for your booking states arrival and departure times as well as information on when the holiday home is ready for your arrival. Please note that it is not possible to access the holiday home earlier than agreed, just as the holiday home must always be vacated no later than at the time of departure. After the time of departure, you no longer have the right to stay in the holiday home, and the host will therefore be able to enforce access to the holiday home.
Handing over of keys upon arrival is agreed directly with the host.
Number of guests
When booking, the holiday home's maximum number of guests will be stated. At no point of time may more people stay in the holiday home than the maximum number stated in the notice on the Platform. It is also not allowed to park a caravan, motorhome or pitch a tent on the plot, unless the host has agreed in writing.
At Landfolk, final cleaning is always included, so you don't have to spend the last day of the holiday cleaning. However, you are obliged to clean the rented property to a general extent and must leave a nicely tidy holiday home at the end of the rental periode. This means, among other things, that you must:
- do the dishes
- empty dishwasher and refrigerator
- remove hair and debris from pets
- remove ash from wood stove
- make beds
- ensure that closets are cleaned
- empty trash cans, toilet bins and remove empty bottles
- clean garden furniture, and place them accordingly, make sure to bring cushions in
- clean the grill
- provide regular tidying as well as the placement of furniture as it stood upon arrival.
If the above is not complied with, then additional costs for cleaning and cleaning will be charged.
Smoking is not permitted in the holiday home unless the host has accepted this. If this is not complied with, you will be charged with an extra cleaning fee, including the cleaning of walls, etc., with the addition of DKK 5,000 as a result of the violation.
6) Complaints, errors and omissions
At Landfolk, we always strive to create the best possible holiday experience, and it is very important to us that your expectations for the holiday stay are met.
Should something happen to not live up to your expectations, either upon arrival at the holiday home or during your stay, please contact Landfolk immediately about the matter via email at email@example.com . If Landfolk is contacted later than 24 hours after the commencement of the rental periode, your right to claim the defective not longer applies, including claims for full or partial repayment of the rent or compensation.
In the event of a timely complaint, Landfolk will contact the host, who is obliged to seek redress for a defective complaint within a reasonable time, unless the relationship is due to your own circumstances. If the defect is not remedied, you must contact Landfolk via the above-mentioned e-mail as soon as possible and before the time of departure.
As a guest, you are responsible to the host for any damage that you or your guests may cause to the holiday home during the stay, as well as associated furniture and movables. Should any damage occur in the holiday home, you must notify Landfolk immediately.
