15. Attorney’s Fees: If Owner consults legal counsel or a professional collection service, for collecting any amounts due to Owner under this Agreement, licensee shall be responsible for all costs of litigation and/or collection in case of such, including actual attorney’s fees.

16. Limitations on Rental: Owner will not be liable for circumstances beyond their control, including, but not limited to, appliances or air-conditioning/heating failure, other mechanical failure, unfavorable weather, disruption of utility services including cable television, etc. There will be no relocation, rental pro-ration or refund in the event of such circumstances. In the event Owner is unable to deliver the Property to Licensee because of property sale, property owner decision, fire, hurricane mandatory evacuation, published road closure due to a hurricane, eminent domain or Acts of Nature, or if the property is unavailable because of construction delays or lack of utilities, Licensee agrees that Owner’s sole liability, as a result of any of these conditions, will be a full refund of all payments tendered by Licensee. Licensee and Owner agree that in case of inadvertent double booking or occupancy by Owner in preparation for a hurricane, Licensee will be ONLY entitled to a full refund of all monies previously tendered by Licensee or in the alternative to an alternate rental period at the discretion of Licensee.

Licensee expressly acknowledges that in no event will Owner be held liable for any other condition out of the control of the Owner, or for any incidental or consequential damages, including but not limited to, expenses that result from moving or for any other losses.

17. Tenancy: The Licensee acknowledges that this is NOT a tenancy for the Property. The Property is not rented for more than 30 days, and is taxed and treated as a transient occupancy, akin to hotel accommodations. Property laws do not apply to the license granted herein, and the Licensee may be removed as a trespasser immediately upon termination of this license. The Property is rented on regular short-term periods, and for a significantly higher rate than a non-vacation rental. Often a licensee is scheduled to begin a vacation in the Property on the same day as the checkout day of the prior licensee. If Licensee stays even one additional day (“Holdover”), Owner would face significant logistical problems with the next licensee, including possible liability. As such, Licensee agrees to vacate immediately on the check-out day, at 11:00 a.m. Failure to do so will entitle Owner, in addition to all other remedies available to it, to: have Licensee ejected as trespasser; and to physically remove Licensee and all of Licensee’s possessions from the Property, for which Licensee hereby grants permission and consent; and obtain damages and injunctive relief against Licensee.

18. Indemnification: Licensee agrees to release and indemnify Owner from and against all liability should anyone be injured upon the premises during the term of occupancy, resulting from any cause whatsoever, except in the case of personal injury cause by willful gross negligence on the part of the Owner.

19. Owner Changes: Every effort is made to ensure all information on the web site and other documentation is accurate and complete. However, Owner is not liable for errors, omissions, mistakes, price changes and any changes by the Owner in furnishings, equipment, bed arrangements and other accommodations.

20. Effective Date: Not withstanding any other assurance to the contrary, this Occupancy Agreement is not binding or effective until digitally signed by Licensee, and accepted by Owner as evidenced by Owner’s acceptance of deposit payment.

21. Governing Law: The terms and conditions stated herein will be interpreted by and governed under the laws of the State of Texas and any action arising out of this agreement shall be litigated in the city of Galveston, State of Texas.

22. Invalid Provisions: If any provision of this Agreement is held to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable under present or future laws effective during the term hereof, such provision shall be fully severable and this Agreement shall be construed and enforced as if such illegal, invalid, or unenforceable provision had never comprised a part hereof; and the remaining provisions hereof shall remain in full force and effect and shall not be affected by the illegal, invalid, or unenforceable provision or by it’s severance hereof. Furthermore, in lieu of such illegal, invalid, or unenforceable provision there shall be added automatically as a part of the Agreement a provision as similar in terms to such illegal, invalid, or unenforceable provision as may be possible and still be legal, valid, or enforceable.

23. Entire Agreement: This Agreement sets forth the entire understanding of the parties and supersedes all prior agreements or understandings, whether written or oral, with respect to the subject matter hereof. No amendment or modification hereto shall be binding unless made in writing and signed by the parties hereto.

24. Waiver: The waiver by either party hereto of a breach of any term or provision of this Agreement shall not operate or be construed as a waiver of a subsequent breach of same provision by any party or of the breach of any other term or provisions of this Agreement.

25. Headings: Headings of the paragraphs herein are used solely for convenience and shall not be used for interpretation or construing any word, clause, paragraph or provision of this Agreement. A copy of this agreement will be emailed to you for your records.
