Rental ApplicationIt’s quite acceptable to ask clients to complete a form that provides basic information on the group that will occupy the property. This will give you the details to complete a rental agreement and can include names and ages of each member of the group; contact details, and any special requests your potential guests may have.
Rental AgreementThis is a legally binding document that is signed by owner and rental guest and defines the nature of the rental. It should include, as a minimum, the names and addresses of both parties to the agreement; dates of the rental period; rate to be paid; and maximum occupancy limits.
Terms & Conditions of RentalThe Terms and Conditions are set out to clarify the Owner's obligations to the Renter, the Renter's obligations to the owner, and in the very unlikely event of any disputes, the document can be used as a basis for any resolution.
Statement of AccountsRegardless of the payment terms you use, you need to have paperwork that shows when money has been collected, and if a deposit has been taken, when final payment is due. Each document should indicate the dates of the rental period and the name and address of the lead renter. If you collect sales tax, then your tax number will also be shown.
