1. Lease agreement
When booking, the tenant enters into a binding agreement with Kobbar & Skär, as an intermediary. The agreement applies between you as a tenant and the cottage’s owner. Kobbar & Skär are only intermediaries and are thus only responsible as such.

For the booking to be valid, agreed payments such as the booking fee, final sum and/or deposit must be made according to the latest date specified.
If the payment is made online with a debit/credit card via Kobbar & Skär Stugförmedling AB’s website, you guarantee that the card used is your own and that there is/will be cover for the payments/reservations that will be made according to the agreement, e.g. in case of any deposit reserved on the card a few days before arrival, you further guarantee that the validity period of the card extends to at least one month after the check-out date.
If any of the payments are not paid as agreed or cannot be carried out, e.g. reservation that cannot be completed, that there is not enough money or for some other reason, the reservation expires and access to the rental object may be stopped.

In the event of a complaint, the tenant must give Kobbar & Skär Stugförmedling/the property owner a reasonable deadline to correct or repair any damage. If departure from the holiday home occurs before the agreed check-out date, without notifying Kobbar och Skär or the property owner, the tenant risks not being able to cancel the agreement in the event of serious deficiencies or to demand compensation or a price reduction. It is then considered that the tenant himself has made it impossible to remedy or repair the possible damage.
