5. How does the security deposit work?
As a precaution against damages or expenses incurred on our behalf, we require a signed credit card security deposit of when you move in. It is customary to acknowledge any damage that you are aware of that happens during yours rental. We understand that there are breakdowns of equipment due to normal wear and tear and the odd piece of glassware or dinnerware may get broken. We don’t charge for those types of minor things. The credit card deposit is normally fully refunded after we confirm everything is as it should be after check-out. Most expenses such as long distance charges etc. that might show up later are best dealt with by cheque.
