In such a situation we do not accept any liability for any compensation but will of course refund monies already paid by you.
Care of your apartment
You agree to make every effort to leave the property as you found it and exercise a responsibility of reasonable care for the building its contents. On departure should the condition of the property be in a state that may reasonably be judged unacceptable then this will be considered damage and a portion or the whole security deposit may be retained.
Liability
Under no circumstances shall the owners’ liability to the client exceed the amount paid to the owner for the rental period.
