Before handing over the keys, the tenant must pay the owner or his representative the security deposit (amount shown on the accommodation description and on the confirmation email). This is to cover any damage to the property, its furnishings or equipment, or theft. It can also be used to pay for cleaning not carried out at the end of the stay, for gas/electricity consumption or for the balance of the rent. If the cleaning has not been carried out, or has not been completed in full, the amount retained will depend on the time spent by the cleaning company.

There are several ways to pay the security deposit, depending on the accommodation selected: cheque (in euros), cash (in euros), bank transfer or credit card imprint (a pre-authorization for the amount of the security deposit will be made via the Swikly service).

In the case of credit card payment, Moment'Apart uses the Swikly online service, which enables tenants to deposit their deposit simply by making a credit card imprint, without having to pay in advance. Swikly eliminates the need to send a check, cash, transfer or block your credit card. This is not a payment: The tenant will not be debited for the amount requested, and the funds will not be blocked on his bank account. The deposit will automatically expire a few days after departure if no damage is noted after departure.

Please note Fees generated by the request for “swiks” will be shared 50% by Moment'Apart and 50% by the tenant. The costs are calculated as follows: 1.8% of the amount of the deposit + 25 cts excl. tax (example for a deposit of €1000: (€1000 x 1.8%) + 0.25 cts = €18.25 excl. tax, i.e. €9.13 payable by Moment'Apart and €9.12 payable by the tenant).

The security deposit will be returned to the tenant on the day of departure, or within a maximum of 3 weeks following departure, if no damage or deterioration has been noted in the accommodation, if it has been returned in a clean and tidy condition, and if no over-consumption has been noted in relation to the fixed price indicated in paragraph 11 (for rentals of less than 3 months). In the case of rentals of more than 3 months, gas and/or electricity consumption will be invoiced on an actual basis, and the security deposit will be returned after payment of the latter (in the event of an overrun of more than €50).
