Non-Refundable Processing Fee is due at the time of the online reservation. Visa and MasterCard are accepted. 50% of the rent and travel insurance (if applicable) will be due 7 days after booking date. 50% of the balance in rent plus the accidental forgiveness fee, linen rental fee (if applicable), cleaning fee (if applicable) and pet fee (if applicable) will be due 45 days prior to arrival. Reservations less than 45 days out must pay in full.
ACCIDENTAL FORGIVENESS FEE: Homestead is excited to offer a convenient Accidental Forgiveness Fee option in place of the traditional security deposit. For a one time (non-refundable) fee, you will be protected against accidental damages to your rental property equal to the amount of the property security deposit. You pay the one time fee with your final payment and DO NOT have to pay refundable security deposit. This allows more funds to be freed up for your vacation fun!
Note: The amount of your Accidental Forgiveness Fee is listed in the payment schedule of your lease. For reference, 1-2 bedroom properties are $50.00, 3-4 bedroom are $100.00, 5-7 bedroom properties are $200.00 and 8 plus bedroom properties are $250.00.
The Accidental Forgiveness Fee is coverage not to exceed the amount of the security deposit that is attached to the property. For example, if a 3 bedroom property carries a $500 security deposit, the $100.00 one time Accidental Forgiveness Fee will cover accidental damages up to the amount of $500. Tenant may be held liable for damages exceeding the amount of the property security deposit. While heavy cleaning/sanitizing is not required upon departure, you are expected to leave the property in the condition in which you found it. Vacating a property and leaving it excessively dirty is not acceptable and may result in charges for additional cleaning. The Accidental Forgiveness Fee DOES NOT cover any additional cleaning charges.
Cancellation of any online reservation forfeits all money paid except damage & cleaning deposit and refundable fees (ie linen service). Processing fee is non-refundable. If Homestead Real Estate is able to rebook the reservation, Homestead will refund your rental payment less a 12% cancellation fee.
