  10. Content Insurance

    It is the sole discretion of the Owner to secure insurance for the Property and its content.

  11. Setup Fee

    Owner shall pay Manager the amount of TEN THOUSAND PESOS (Php10,000) as setup fee. This amount shall cover Manager’s initial costs in preparing the Property for marketing, for the transportation expenses and allowances of its personnel when showing the Property to prospect tenants and such other initial expenses required in order to get the Property tenanted. The direct costs of paid advertising and promotions for the Property shall also be taken from this amount.

    This setup fee will be paid only once, which is upon the beginning of the effectivity of this Agreement and shall not recur during the uninterrupted effectivity of the same.

  12. Compensation of Manager

    Owner shall pay Manager the following compensation for services to be rendered, depending on the length of the rental or lease contract with a tenant:

    1. For yearly contracts or longer, one-month-equivalent rent of the Property, per year, collected at the start of each contract year.

    2. For contracts less than one (1) year but not less than three (3) months, ten per cent (10%) of the whole contract amount, collected at the start of the contract.

    3. For short-term/transient stays, thirty per cent (30%) of each guest’s booking fee. Transient stays are those from 1 night, to 3 months.

    The same arrangements for the Manager’s compensation shall apply if the tenant extends or renews the lease or rental contract. Furthermore, the abovementioned fees are inclusive of applicable business taxes on the part of the Manager.

    If, for reasonable causes, a tenant cannot continue to the end of his rent or lease contract, and the Owner decides to approve the tenant’s request, waiving his right to collect the balance on the unpaid months of the contract, the tenant’s security deposit shall be forfeited in favor of the Owner as compensation for the pre-termination. In such case, Manager shall find another qualified tenant for the Property and shall likewise receive a separate compensation, as stipulated above, for the subsequent rental or lease contract.

  13. Pre-Existing Lease

    Should there be a pre-existing lease or rental agreement on the Property prior to this Service Agreement, the preceding stipulation on Manager’s compensation shall apply the same. For the purpose of calculating Manager’s compensation, the length of such pre-existing lease or rental agreement is understood to be its remaining duration from the date of the effectivity of this Service Agreement, to the end of such lease or rental agreement.

    Any and all existing damage, fault, deficiency or lacking fixtures or installations in the Property prior to this Agreement which need to be corrected, fixed, repaired or installed either during the duration of the pre-existing lease, or before the Property can be offered to subsequent prospect tenants or guests, shall be outside the scope of work of the Manager under this Agreement and the Owner shall be charged a separate fee by the Manager for these services.

    In case of default by pre-existing lessees, or other violations of the pre-existing lease agreement, Owner may not oblige Manager to bring legal actions against said lessees in Owner’s behalf.

  14. Term and Termination

    The initial term of this Agreement shall be one (1) year from the date of its effectivity and shall be automatically renewed and extended under the same terms then effective, for similar periods thereafter unless terminated pursuant to this Article.

    Either party may terminate this Agreement at any time and for any reason other than those mentioned in the succeeding paragraphs in this Article, by providing written notice forty-five (45) days prior to the date of termination. Provided that, if the party initiating the termination has any outstanding balances payable to the other, the same has to be settled before the forty-five-day notice starts counting. Non-payment of said outstanding balances upon the demand of the entitled party constitutes a breach of this Agreement.

    Manager may terminate this Agreement with thirty (30) days notice for failure of the Owner to pay the Manager the agreed compensation or for breach of any of the terms of this Contract, without prejudice to any claims against Owner which Manager may be entitled to under the law.

    Owner may terminate this Agreement with thirty (30) days notice for failure of the Manager to provide regular accounts on the Property, or for breach of any of the terms of this Contract.
