1. cancellation conditions If the tenant cancels the contract before the start of the rental period without naming a new tenant who will enter into the contract under the same conditions, the following pro rata rents are to be paid as compensation, taking into account the expenses saved, provided that it is not possible to rent the property to another tenant:

Cancellation up to three months before the start of the rental period free of charge.
Cancellation up to two months before the start of the rental period 50% of the confirmed offer price.
Cancellation up to one month before the beginning of the rental period 100 % of the confirmed offer price.

Decisive for the calculation of the cancellation periods is the same monthly date as the beginning of the rental period, calculated one or two months back. Nevertheless, the lessor shall endeavor to rent the rental object to another party. The tenant can always prove a lesser damage. If the tenant cancels the stay prematurely, he remains obliged to pay the full rental price. Cancellation or termination can only be made in writing. The date of receipt of the declaration by the lessor is decisive.


2. liability/business liability The lessee is obliged to take out a liability/business liability insurance policy before the start of the rental period, which covers the intended risk of use to the full amount. The Lessee warrants that it has such insurance. Upon request, proof of such insurance shall be provided to the lessor no later than the commencement of the rental period.

The lessee/organizer shall name a responsible manager of the event to the lessor. This person must have familiarized himself with the premises and their facilities before the start of the event. For this reason, he/she shall be instructed in the premises and their facilities by the lessor or a person authorized by the lessor and shall confirm this in writing at the lessor’s request prior to the start of the event. The event manager is responsible for the safety of the event and compliance with the regulations. He must be present during the entire event, during set-up and dismantling, and during any rehearsals.
