B. General parking terms for long term parkers

  1. RENTAL CONTRACT - GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
    1. Subject to this contract is the lease of parking spots according to the contract confirmation (rental contract). There is no claim to a defined parking place. In case there is no parking space available due to overcrowding the renter cannot ask from the lessor a refund or a rent reduction. The rental fee is defined by the rent for rental provision for the parking space. This lease contract does not cover surveillance, monitoring, safekeeping or insurance coverage. There will not be any assumption of care or liability from the side of the lessor. The use of the parking facility is at the renter’s own risk.
    2. Rental fee and lease duration are defined by the rental contract with a lease period (in relation to the parking place) from 1 of 3 months. You will find the minimum contract duration on our website, below the monthly rent for long term parking. The renter’s approval to raise in rent in accordance with a request for rental adjustment by the lessor shall be deemed granted if the renter has been granted an appropriate period for approval of this request and the lessor has informed the renter about the fact that his approval has been deemed granted if he does not object to this in written form within said period.
    3. The rental fee is due on the first day of each month in advance. The renter entitles the lessor to collect the rent on the first day of each month in advance by SEPA Direct Debit until the time of cancellation.

    4. If the renter’s account does not have the requisite cover, the account-holding bank does not have the obligation to honor the payment. Possible fees in case of dishonor of a debit advice will be borne by the renter plus a service charge of € 25,00 per return debit. At default of payment the renter’s code card will be blocked and only after payment of the outstanding amount unblocked again. The renter will be charged with possible reminder fees amounting up to € 5,00 per dunning level.
    5. The lessor is entitled to a right of retention and a legal lean to the parked car due to his claims resulting from the rental contract. If the renter is delayed with payment obligations the lessor can undertake the debt recovery earliest two weeks after its menace.
    6. For the duration of the lease the renter receives a code card from the lessor. For the issuing of this card the renter will be charged with a single fee of € 5,00. The lessor’s staff is not permitted to allow entry or exit without the code card. The code card is to be kept properly. For provision of a second code card either as replacement for a lost card or for use as a second card an activation fee of € 25,00 will be charged. The period of use is restricted to the extend that only one card can be used at a time. A use of the two cards at the same time is not possible. For an additionally handed out key there will be charged a key deposit of € 25,00 which will be returned at the return of the key.

Other damages to his vehicle must be reported to the lessor in written form within a period of two weeks after the damage was discovered.
