Neither  Ballito  Accommodation  nor  any  other  person  acting  for  or  through  or  on  behalf  of  Ballito Accommodation shall be liable for any loss or damage, personal injury or wrongful death, loss of income or loss of support claim or punitive damages or any other claim of the tenant or the tenant’s representatives or dependants.

  20. Clause 9.2 of the Estate Agents Affairs Board Code of Conduct provides that “an estate agent shall, before he receives any money in trust in respect of sale or lease, disclose to the parties concerned that unless they agree in writing to whom the interest earned on such money must be paid, the interest shall, in terms of Section 32(2)(c) accrue to the Estate Agents Fidelity Fund”.
  21. In light of the fact that we only do short term holiday rentals Clause 20 is not specifically applicable to our function as a holiday letting agent and therefore, upon payment of the deposit it will be taken that you accept that any interest generated on the deposit paid will be retained by Ballito Accommodation.
  22. On receipt of your deposit you are deemed to have accepted the above Conditions of Letting.
