CANCELLATIONS & REFUNDS
If the TENANT cancels this lease in writing to the LANDLORD’S AGENT after the Rent Deposit is received by the LANDLORD, and before occupancy, and the LANDLORD re-rents the same term for an equal or greater rent, all payments will be refunded to the TENANT within 30 days after the term of this lease, less the reservation fee, and a cancellation handling fee of 15% of the total rental fee. If the LANDLORD re-rents for a lesser rent, all payments will be refunded to the TENANT, less the difference of the two rents or 15% of the total, whichever is greater. If the LANDLORD does not re-rent for the same term, all TENANT payments for the entire contract amount are due and forfeited to the LANDLORD. There are no refunds for a cancellation made 30 days or less before the rental term. EXCEPT AS STATED ABOVE, NO REFUNDS WILL BE PROVIDED FOR CONDITIONS OR EVENTS BEYOND THE CONTROL OF THE LANDLORD OR THE AGENT. THERE ARE NO REFUNDS FOR HURRICANES, NATURAL DISASTERS OR THEIR EFFECTS. TENANT IS ENCOURAGED TO PURCHASE TRAVEL INSURANCE THAT MAY PROVIDE REFUNDS IN THE CASE OF HURRICANES, NATURAL DISASTERS OR THEIR EFFECTS, INCLUDING CHANGES IN BEACH CONDITION. ADDITIONALLY, REFUNDS ARE NOT PROVIDED FOR NOISE OR OTHER ANNOYANCES, SUCH AS CONSTRUCTION FROM NEARBY PROPERTIES NOT OWNED BY THE LANDLORD.
