Deposit for damages and losses of inventory
The security deposit for possible damages to the property or losses of inventory shall be refunded to you by bank transfer within 7 days of your departure, once the owner and ourselves verify that the property and inventory are in the same state as delivered upon your arrival, and that it is reasonably tide and clean. Should damages or losses occur, we will deduct the necessary amount from your deposit. In such case you will receive a detailed receipt of the expenses.

Any total or partial cancellation of your stay in the property booked must be communicated in writing to Lamar Properties. All deposits received are non-refundable. Should the cancellation occur once the full amount of your stay has been paid, we will apply the following cancellation charges, unless agreed otherwise:

Long Term Rentals

The properties available for long term rentals generally in this area are for periods of 11 months. However, during the autumn/winter months the long term rates may be applied for shorter periods (6 months).

The long term rentals conditions for reservations, contract agreements and prices differ from short term rentals. They are subject to specific terms which will be agreed in advance in each case. As a general rule in Spain for furnished properties, the property owner requires a deposit guarantee payment of a minimum two months rent, as well as an advance one month rent payment. Nevertheless, as most properties we manage are high standard ones the owners require bank guarantees or up-front payment.

Please contact us so that we may give you detailed conditions for the property in which you are interested.
