9.1. By agreeing to the terms of booking and Terms of Lease of Aaro-sa, the tenant is required
to comply with the following house rules and ensure that the other tenants, or co-tenants,
any visitors and pets present comply with these. These house rules are as follows:
9.2. Our cleaners know every detail of the house. During the cleaning process, they perform
an inspection and shall replenish the inventory. This means that, usually, the inventory
should be ok. If this is not the case, we ask you to notify us of this within two hours after
arrival. Eventually, you will be responsible for a proper delivery on departure.
9.3. There is a flannel around the mattress protecting the mattress. Please cover this with
your own sheets. There is a pillowcase around the pillow to protect it, please cover this
with your own pillow case. When soiling our flannel or pillowcase, you will be charged
5 Euro per bed. Cleaning a blanket costs 17,35 euro.
9.4. You are only allowed to start a fire in the fireplace or woodstove inside the house.You
are strictly forbidden to start a fire outside. The barbecue should only be used with charcoal!
9.4. Don't cause any nuisance to your neighbors, in particular after 10 PM.
9.5. It is prohibited to flush tampons or the likes through the toilet. This causes blockage.
Every toilet has a waste bucket for this purpose. The use of bleach is alto not allowed,
since the holiday accommodations have biologic purification stations.
9.6. If the tenant has received permission to bring a pet, there should be no traces of the
presence of this pet after departure of the tenant. The excreta of these pets, both inside
and outside the holiday accommodation need to be removed by the tenant. The same applies to
the hairs of these pets. When the tenant is in default concerning this, a surcharge for
cleaning costs shall apply of 39 euro per hour.
9.7. In order to increase the safety of the tenants, most holiday accommodations have a fire
blanket and one or more fire extinguishers. Aaro-sa strongly recommends the tenant to
carefully read the user manual of this. Removing or breaking of the seal of the extinguishers
without proper reason is prohibited. If Aaro-sa needs to refill the extinguishers (which
is a legal requirement when the seal is broken) the costs of this, being 98 euro per
extinguisher, shall be charged to the tenant.

10. Delivery.
10.1. Final cleaning. As you all know, staff is very expensive. Your contribution to the
cleaning costs is actually a contribution. It consumes a lot of time to clean properly.
This is why we request the following contributions from you. Delivering the house and the
garden in their original state, for instance:
a: Emptying the trash cans and separating and placing the trash outside, according to
regulations in a knotted and authorized trash bags. If the trash is not separated according
to regulations, this always involves a 70 euro fee.
b: throwing empty glass into the class container.
This container is usually located in the village center.
c: Pans, dishes, cutlery etc should be clean and stored where they belong.
d: The blankets and pillows on the beds should be folded the way you found them on arrival.
e: The house should be delivered clean and vacuum cleaned and all furniture should be
returned to its original location.
f: If you had permission to bring along a dog or dogs, please make sure that there are no
visible or odor traces of this on your departure.
g: All damages, breakage or defects should be reported immediately.
h: Outdoor tables and chairs should be stored where they belong and the barbecue should be
cleaned and stored. In short: everything should be returned the state in which you found them.
When you are in default with regard to the above mentioned points, a surcharge for cleaning
is inevitable.

11. Liability.
11.1. Aaro-sa accepts no liability for theft, loss or damage of whatever nature during or
as a result of a stay in the holiday accommodation rented by the tenant, nor for the failure
of technical appliances present in the holiday accommodations.
11.2. The tenant and all persons and / or animals who accompany him or her are severally
liable for all losses and / or damage suffered by Aaro-sa and / or any third party as a
direct or indirect consequence of their stay, regardless of whether this was caused by their
actions or negligence or that of third parties present in the holiday accommodations on
their behalf, as well as all damage caused by any animal and / or goods they carry.
11.3. Every accommodation has been visited and inspected by Aaro-sa or one of her
representatives in advance. The descriptions listed on line are correct and created in good
faith. Yet, Aaro-sa rejects all liability for any modifications made by the owner outside
her knowledge.
11.4. Force Majeure at the side of Aaro-sa applies if the implementation of the agreement is
completely or partially, whether or not temporary, is prevented due to circumstances beyond
the control of Aaro-sa, including war threats, fire, floods, strikes and other disturbances
or events. Aaro-sa is in no way liable for this. If this Force Majeure makes the partial or
full implementation of the agreement impossible, Aaro-sa is required to reimburse the tenant
the full amount of rent paid. Condition thereto is that the tenant contacts Aaro-sa
immediately and confirms the issue in writing within 24 hours after becoming aware of it
through e-mail: info@aaro-sa.com . If the aforementioned written notification has not taken
place and the tenant has prematurely left the holiday accommodation without the permission
of Aaro-sa, the tenant shall lose all entitlement to any reimbursement of the rent.
Complaints filed after the departure of the tenant shall not be considered and shall not
lead to entitlement to compensation of damages.
11.5. If Aaro-sa. Is unable to make the rented accommodation available to the tenant as a
result of Force Majeure or for any other reason beyond its control, except in case of intent
and / or gross neglect of Aaro-sa or others appointed by her, Aaro-sa is allowed to offer
the tenant an accommodation of equal value, provided that the tenant explicitly agrees with
this. If the rent of this accommodation is lower, the difference in price will be reimbursed
to the tenant of the holiday accommodation. If parties are unable to reach an agreement,
they can each terminate the contract. In this case, Aaro-sa shall only reimburse the amount
deposited for rent, and not compensate any other costs.
11.6. All disputes related to booking and rental are subject to Belgian Law and will be
brought before the Peace Court of the district where the property is located. The fact that
the tenant has agreed to the conditions during booking, leads to the assumption that the
tenant is aware of the contents of the general terms of lease of Aaro-sa and consequently
accepted these without any reservation or exceptions.
11.7. If any conditions or clauses in the agreement are invalid, this does not affect the
validity of the other conditions of the agreement.
