Introduction

General information about us

Landfolk A/S
CVR: 42074640
Bülowsgade 68, st.
8000 Aarhus C
Email: support@landfolk.com

These terms and conditions apply to all services that Landfolk A/S, CVR 42074640, Bülowsgade 68, st., 8000 Aarhus C ("Landfolk", "us", "we" or "our") offers to you as a lessee when you use our platform ("Platform") for the intermediation of holiday home rentals. When you create a user profile as a lessee on our Platform, and when you make a booking, you accept these terms and conditions.

We have tried to communicate terms as clearly as possible below. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at support@landfolk.com.

1) Intermediation

Our mission is to create a Platform that makes private rental of holiday homes easy and transparent for both lessees and lessors. By virtue of its Platform, Landfolk is responsible for the intermediation work related to the rental of holiday homes on behalf of lessors and for their expense and risk. When you book a holiday home on our Platform, an agreement is concluded between you and the lessor for the rental of the holiday home in question for the chosen period and on the terms set out in the listing on the Platform, together with the rights and obligations between you and the lessor arising from those terms.

Therefore, we accept no responsibility for, and will not become involved in, any disputes between you and the lessor, nor will we be responsible for the lessor's compliance with the law in force at any time.

2) Use of the holiday home

The holiday home may only be used for holiday purposes unless otherwise agreed with the lessor, and no more persons may stay than the maximum number stated on the Platform, which includes children. Pets may only be brought if this is stated as permitted by the lessor on the Platform, and it is further stated in the rental agreement where you have actively stated that you want to bring pets in connection with your booking.

The holiday home must be used in accordance with these terms and any guidelines that the lessor has adopted for the use of his holiday home, provided that you have been informed of these at the time of your booking.

If the holiday home is used in breach of these terms and conditions, including the above guidelines, the legislation in force at any time, to the detriment of the residents and guests of the area and in violation of the public order in general or for purposes other than holiday purposes, the rental agreement may be terminated by the lessor without notice and with immediate effect.

The stated price before a booking request is based on a rental agreement with private individuals. If your booking has a commercial purpose, such as a photoshoot, the lessor reserves the right to make a new offer based on a description of the purpose.

3) Condition and facilities of the holiday home

The holiday homes on the Platform are privately owned and are furnished according to the lessor's personal style, taste, and needs. Therefore, the holiday homes are not identical, just as their furnishings and equipment will vary.

However, a holiday home will - unless otherwise stated in the listing - be equipped with:

  • cooker, coffee machine, cutlery and kitchen utensils for the number of people allowed, as well as basic items such as spices, salt and oil, dishwashing liquid or tabs (if the holiday home has a dishwasher), bin liners, and basic cleaning products
  • toilet, cold and hot water, hand shower/shower cubicle and toilet paper
  • vacuum cleaner
  • heating sources such as radiators or heat pump
  • beds, duvets, and pillows
  • waste container or similar. As these are emptied continually, the waste container cannot be expected to be empty on arrival.

Like your own home, your holiday home may be equipped with other items than those mentioned above. If there is any equipment in the holiday home other than that shown in the listing and above, including a TV, washing machine, tumble dryer or dishwasher, that is not working, we cannot guarantee that the repair can be made during your stay.

Please note that if the holiday home is listed as having a TV, there may not be any TV channels or streaming services available to you. If the lessor's streaming services are available to you, you are not allowed to make purchases, rent films or the like unless the lessor has expressly agreed to this.

If your holiday home has a wood-burning stove, there will be firewood available for you to use for the initial lighting, so you can start enjoying your holiday from the moment you arrive.

If you want additional firewood, you must buy it. If there is more firewood at the holiday home than for the initial lighting, it is the lessor's private property and may only be used if the lessor has given permission.

Charging of electric cars is not allowed in the holiday home for safety reasons unless it has a charging station installed for this purpose. Consumption for charging is not included in "normal consumption" (see clause 4) and is therefore settled directly with the lessor. Please inform the lessor prior to arrival if you wish to use the charging station.

If you need special equipment, including equipment for children, you can contact Landfolk at support@landfolk.com before signing the contract and contact the lessor directly after signing the contract to learn if the holiday home has such equipment.

The holiday home will be clean at the time of arrival, but unfortunately, the following may occur if the holiday home has been available for a shorter or longer period after cleaning:

  • There may be cobwebs in the holiday home on arrival, as they can quickly be made from hour to hour
  • there may be a damp and stuffy smell on arrival, which can be remedied by airing out thoroughly and then turning on the heat
  • the windows of the holiday home may look dirty, and there may be sand, flies or similar on arrival, depending on wind and weather conditions.

If the above exceeds what can reasonably be expected, or the state of cleanliness is otherwise unsatisfactory, a complaint may be made in accordance with clause 6 below.

It may happen that previous lessees 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 resulting from this do not give the lessee the right to cancel or terminate the rental agreement, nor are Landfolk responsible for allergic reactions. In general, we recommend that lessees who have dust allergies choose houses with wooden or tiled floors.

In addition, disturbance from construction noise or other noise from the surrounding area of the holiday home may occur. The lessor or Landfolk cannot be held liable for this.

4) Terms of payment

Once your booking has been confirmed, a binding agreement has been concluded for the rental of the holiday home in question, and full payment will be charged immediately thereafter by Landfolk via the chosen payment method. The booking is confirmed when you receive a written confirmation via the email address you provided us with when you booked.

If the full rental amount is not paid on time, the rental agreement will be terminated with immediate effect. You can read more about the conditions for cancellation after payment in clause 6 below.

All rental prices on Landfolk's Platform include general consumption (in the form of electricity, heating and water). We encourage you as a lessee to be responsible both to the lessor and the environment by only heating as needed, turning off a sauna after use and using the pool, spa, etc., in moderation.

The price also includes the final cleaning, so you don't have to spend the last day of your holiday cleaning. However, see details on cleaning under clause 5.

You can pay by a card or bank transfer. We do not charge card fees, and payment by account transfer is not covered by the objection scheme.

5) Other obligations towards the lessor

The holiday home must be used in accordance with these terms and any guidelines that the lessor has adopted for the use of his holiday home, provided that you have been informed of these at the time of your booking.

Arrival and departure time

The rental proof for your booking shows the arrival and departure times and information on when the holiday home is ready for occupation. Please note that it is not possible to access the holiday home earlier than agreed, and the holiday home must always be vacated by the time of departure. After the time of departure, you no longer have the right to stay in the holiday home, and the lessor will therefore be able to enforce his right to the holiday home.

Handing out of keys on arrival is agreed directly with the lessor.

Number of guests

When booking, the maximum number of persons in the holiday home will be indicated. At no time may there be more persons in the holiday home than the maximum number indicated in the notice on the Platform. It is also not allowed to place a caravan, motorhome or pitch a tent on the site unless the lessor has agreed to this in writing.

Cleaning

With Landfolk, the final cleaning is always included, so you don't have to spend the last day of your holiday cleaning. However, you are obliged to clean the rented property to the usual standard and must leave a tidy holiday home at the end of the rental period. This means, among other things, that you must:

  • do the dishes
  • empty the dishwasher and the fridge
  • remove hair and remnants from pets
  • remove ashes from the stove
  • ready beds
  • tidy up cupboards
  • empty rubbish bins, toilet bins, and remove empty bottles
  • clean garden furniture, place it correctly and put in cushions
  • clean the grill
  • arrange for general clean-up and placement of inventory as it stood upon arrival.

If contrary to expectations, the above is not complied with, any additional costs for cleaning and tidying will be charged.

Smoking

Smoking is not allowed in the holiday homes unless the lesson has agreed. If smoking does occur, you will be charged extra cleaning costs to restore the holiday home to its pre-smoking condition, including cleaning of walls, furniture, etc.

6) Complaints, defects, and deficiencies

At Landfolk, we always strive to create the best possible holiday experience, and we are committed to ensuring that your expectations of your holiday are met.

Should anything fail to meet your expectations, either on receipt of the holiday home or during your stay, please contact Landfolk about the matter immediately by email at support@landfolk.com as soon as possible after you have discovered the matter. Failure to complain within a reasonable time may mean that your right to claim the deficiency, including a claim for full or partial repayment of the rent or compensation, lapses.

In the event of a complaint, Landfolk will contact the lessor, who is obliged to seek to remedy a defect that is the subject of a complaint within a reasonable time, unless the defect is due to your own circumstances. If the deficiency is not remedied, please contact Landfolk via the above email as soon as possible and before the time of departure.

As a lessee, you are liable to the lessor for any damage that you or your guests may cause to the holiday home, its furnishings and movable property during your stay. Should damage occur in the holiday home, you must notify Landfolk immediately.

7) Modification, cancellation, and withdrawal

There is no right of withdrawal on holiday home rentals on Landfolk.com other than what follows from this clause.

By making a booking via the Platform, you accept and agree to the applicable cancellation policy of the relevant lessor, as well as the lessor's other terms and guidelines of which you have been informed.

As a service, we offer a 48-hour cancellation period for bookings made more than 48 hours in the future. The right of withdrawal means that you may cancel your booking within 48 hours of receiving confirmation of your booking and receive a full refund if you have not checked in. If you wish to cancel your purchase, you must notify Landfolk in writing at support@landfolk.com. The cancellation date is calculated from the date on which Landfolk received the cancellation.

If you wish to cancel your booking after the right of withdrawal has expired, you can read more about these terms below. Please note that our hosts can choose between the three different cancellation periods below, and it is, therefore, important that you become familiar with the exact conditions for the holiday home you have booked when you make your booking.

Flexible

Guests may cancel the booking up to 14 days before the check-in date and time and receive a full refund. Guests can cancel the booking up to 7 days before the check-in date and time and get 50% of the total rental price refunded Cancellations less than 7 days before the check-in date and time are non-refundable.

Moderate

Guests may cancel the booking up to 30 days before the check-in date and time and receive a full refund. Guests may cancel the booking up to 14 days before the check-in date and time and get 50% of the total rental price refunded Cancellations less than 14 days before the check-in date and time are non-refundable.

Guests may cancel the booking up to 30 days before the check-in date and time and get 50% of the total rental price refunded Cancellations less than 30 days before the check-in date and time are non-refundable.

Do you want to change the dates of an existing booking

Depending on the availability of the holiday home, you may be able to change your booking if the host agrees. If you wish to extend, shorten or otherwise change your booking, please send us an email at support@landfolk.com. Please note that if your requested dates are not available, or if the host is unable to approve a date change, your original booking dates and the above cancellation conditions will remain in effect.

8) Cancellation, force majeure, and exceptional events

The lessor has the right to cancel the rental agreement if the lessor and/or Landfolk are prevented from making the holiday home available due to force majeure.

In case of force majeure, the amount paid will be refunded to you.

Landfolk will, if possible, find an alternative house for the lessee to rent.

9) Liability of Landfolk

Landfolk operates the Platform for the intermediation of holiday homes between lessee and lessor. Landfolk is not a party to the rental agreement that you enter into with the lessor through our Platform. The lessor, not Landfolk, is responsible for fulfilling the agreed rental service.

10) Right of appeal

You can bring a possible dispute with the lessor before the Board of Appeal for Holiday Homes, Amagertorv 9, 2., DK-1160 Copenhagen K. Further information on the Board of Appeal is available at www.ankenaevnferiehus.dk. Alternatively, the European Commission's online complaints portal www.ec.europa.eu/odr can be used to lodge a complaint.

11) Youth groups

To book a holiday home on our Platform, you must be at least 18 years old. If the holiday home is to be booked for a group of more than 3 people, all occupants must be at least 25 years old, unless otherwise agreed with the lessor, or the holiday home is to be used for a family stay (parents with children and adolescents).
