Leasing Terms

1. Payment of rent and non-arrival for personal reasons

The rent is payable on the commencement of the rental period for the entire envisaged period. (Note: Payment of the rent at the end of the rental period can be arranged).

Guests who do not take up residence for personal reasons will still be liable to pay the agreed rent. This also applies in cases in which guests are prevented from taking up residence because of personal circumstances beyond their control.

Guests are obligated to inform the housekeeping manager without delay of any personal circumstances that prevent them from taking up residence. Where it is possible to put the apartment to alternative use (by making it available to others), guests will be reimbursed for the rent due for this period.

2. Arrivals

Details of the arrival of guests must be provided to the housekeeping manager, Ms Duarte. It is most convenient if guests arrive in the afternoon.

If guests expect to arrive in the evening or on a weekend, the keys for the apartment must be collected from the housekeeping manager by the host institute in good time during the office hours. Alternatively, keys can be deposited for collection at the main gate of JGU at „Ackermannweg”.

3. Registration

Guests staying for more than 3 months must register with the authorities. Registration forms are available from the housekeeping manager.

4. Departure

The apartment must be vacated by 10.00 am on the date of departure. We would request that guests who wish to prematurely vacate their apartment contact the housekeeper as soon as possible.

5. Miscellaneous

The booking will be valid for the specified person(s) only. If other guests are to be provided with accommodation in the booked apartment, even if only on a temporary basis, the prior authorization of the housekeeper must be obtained. Applications for an extension or shortening of the rental period must be submitted to the housekeeper.

Further information can be found in the brochure "Information for Guests" which is provided in the various apartments; in addition, the housekeeping manager will be pleased to advise guests.
