A gratuity payment to her is always optional, but we encourage it if she provides you a more than satisfactory level of service. A suggested minimum gratuity for her is 10% of the total rental charges.

If such replacement property cannot be found and made available to you, we will immediately return (on a pro rata basis) all payments made by you, whereupon any agreement we have with you will be terminated and you and we will have no further obligations or liabilities in any manner pertaining such agreement.
