> What is the duration of the contract?
We will prefer contracts of 10 to 12 months duration. Keep in mind that our contracts are MANDATORY COMPLIANCE; that is, you have to fulfill your payment commitment from the beginning to the end of the contract, even if you stop using the property before the end of it./
> What are the payment terms?
There are four concepts in terms of payment:
o The DEPOSIT: Equivalent to one month’s rent and we will keep it until the end of your stay. If your room/apartment is in perfect condition when your contract ends and just as we delivered it to you, this deposit will be returned to you in full up to 30 days after the end of your contract. In the event that there is any damage, the proportional part of the damage caused will be deducted from this deposit.
o The AGENCY: Equivalent to one month’s rent +21% VAT
o The MONTHLY PAYMENT: it is made by bank transfer between the 28th and the 3rd of each month, or through credit/debit card payment at our virtual POS on those same dates
o The PROVISION OF SUPPLIES: Our apartments/rooms DO NOT have the costs of electricity, water, WiFi and gas included in the price (although these services are registered) so you must pay a provision of supplies to cover these expenses up to until your final settlement arrives, in which we will make the calculation between your real invoices and what was provisioned, in case your provision has been greater than the real cost, the remaining amount will be returned to you together with your deposit, otherwise, you will have to pay the amount that you have surpassed LivingMad.
Payments are made in 2 steps:
o The DEPOSIT + the AGENCY to guarantee your reservation – within 2 business days after receiving the place offer.
o The payment of the FIRST MONTHLY PAYMENT + FIRST SUPPLY PROVISION before the effective date of your contract.
o Subsequently, monthly rent payments + provision of supplies will be made between the 28th and 3rd of each month through bank transfer or through our website.
