  1. The product descriptions on online portals and on the Landlord’s website do not constitute binding offers to conclude a contract. They do, however, constitute an invitation to the tenant to submit a binding offer.
  2. The respective rent of the landlord applies, which is communicated on request or by means of an offer or presentation on the landlord’s website. The rent shall be calculated at the rate of a full day’s rent for each day or part thereof that the rental object is made available. An increase in rent during the contractual rental period is excluded.
  3. The Lessor may accept the Lessee’s offer within five (5) days by sending the Lessee a letter of confirmation or by fulfilling its obligations under the contract; in the first case, the receipt of the declaration of acceptance shall be decisive, in the latter case, the receipt of the rental object by the Customer. The period for accepting the offer begins on the day after the tenant sends the offer and ends at the end of the fifth (5th) day following the sending of the offer.
  4. If the landlord does not accept the offer within this period, this shall be deemed a rejection of the offer. In this case, the tenant is no longer bound by his declaration of intent. Otherwise, the tenant is bound to his declaration of intent for a period of two (2) weeks from sending his order by pressing the button “order with costs”. After written confirmation of the order by the Lessor, the provisions of § 6 of these GTC shall apply.

Items that are already in the shopping cart can be removed from the shopping cart by clicking on the trash can symbol (“delete”). Input errors can also be corrected by canceling the order process, e.g. by closing the browser window, and restarting it from the beginning if necessary. After clicking on the “Order with costs” button, it is no longer possible for the tenant to make corrections. However, correction requests can then be sent by e-mail or the right of withdrawal can be exercised.
