This includes but is not limited to breaches in the allowable maximum occupancy per residence, underage violations, smoking inside the premises and allowing pets inside home. Lease agreements under false pretenses be cause for forfeiture of all payments – including the deposit – and the Tenant will be asked to vacate the property immediately.

CANCELLATION: 100% refund if rental cancelled up to 30 days from rental period. No refunds if cancelled after that.
CLEANING: DRC will provide a clean property prior to Tenant’s move-in and another cleaning at end of Tenant’s stay. Any additional cleanings will be extra charges for Tenant.
CONFIRMATION OF RENTAL: Confirmation of property rental is established only when the lease agreement has been signed and executed between Tenant and DRC agent and all monies have been paid to DRC by Tenant in advance of occupancy.
FAILURE TO COMPLY: If Tenant should fail to comply with the policies of this agreement, Tenant shall surrender use of the property immediately, remove all Tenant’s property and belongings and leave the property in good order and free of damage.

FURNISHINGS: All furnishings have been provided by DRC and have been inventoried. Tenants who move any furniture do so at their own risk and understand that additional costs may result if damage occurs during said move or if furnishings are not returned to their original places prior to Tenant’s departure.

Violation of any of these occupancy policies will be cause for and may result in loss of all or a portion of the deposit as well as additional charges. The maximum number of guests provided on the lease agreement shall be the governing factor in determining any violation of maximum occupants. Tenant agrees said charges are at DRC’s sole discretion and determination.
