PAYMENT PROCEDURES & AGENCY'S FEE FOR FURNISHED APARTMENTS

SERVICE CHARGES AND RENTALS
What is this fee?
Our agency charges a fee for its services to help you find a room or apartment for rental in Chile. This fee is charged to cover the agency operating expenses. Its amount is independent on the rental price; it varies according to the length of stay in the case of monthly rentals of Family Homes, Shared Flats, Private Flats and Residences.

When is the fee charged?
This fee must be paid only once and no later than the time when the housing is rented. To secure the housing reservation it is preferable that you send this fee in advance by using either of the two methods outlined below. No fee is charged if you decide to change lodging.

METHOD OF PAYMENT OF THE FEE
To secure your reservation you may send the amount corresponding to the agency fee by means of either of the methods of money transfer to Chile which we can inform to you via email:

OPTION 1: Via WESTERN UNION www.westernunion.com addressed to the Directress of Housing in Chile (please request details via e-mail).
OPTION 2: Through a deposit in our account at the office of our bank (please request details via e-mail).

We will acknowledge the reception of these funds via e-mail sending a receipt (PDF file) as well as we will give you all the accommodation details as housekeeper´s name, address and phone number, directions on how to get the place from the Santiago airport, etc.

If you do not wish to pay the fee in advance, we will not be able to secure the reservation of your preferred lodging.

PAYMENT OF THE MONTHLY LODGING RENTAL
The monthly rental must be paid directly to the host (housekeeper) of each accommodation. Our agency will not receive them, it however, monitors visitor satisfaction with their accommodation and it also coordinates departures and reutilization of lodgings by new visitors.
The monthly rentals must be paid in CHILEAN PESOS and in cash. No foreign bank checks, traveler checks, foreign currency cash, nor credit cards are acceptable for now.
The values in US DOLLARS and EUROS detailed in this site are for reference only. The official values are those expressed in CHILEAN PESOS (CLP).

GUARANTEEE AND CONTRACT
To rent a furnished apartment it is necessary to pay a guarantee equivalent to a ONE monthly rental, which will be give you back at the end of the period and after to check whether all the bills have been paid in time and the apartment's stuff is according to the inventory signed together with the CONTRACT. The guarantee amount has to be paid to the flat's owner at the beginning of the rental period too.
Regarding to the CONTRACT, this will be signed between the apartment's owner and the passenger on arrival. Passengers have to provide two photocopies of their passports.

IN CASE OF MOVING OUT FROM THE APARTMENT
If later on you decide not to continue living at the previously chosen flat, you shall give us an advance notice of ONE MONTH. That first monthly rental is not refundable, as well as our commission fee (agency's fee). We will be pleased to help you find another accommodation among the apartments with which we operate, not charging a new commission fee. By other hand, if you decide to move into other flat that do not belong to our network, our agency's fee is not refundable either.

REGARDING THE LENGTH OF STAY
It is important that you define the total length of your stay when you make your reservation at our agency, since that will help us to define the commission's fee that will be charged, as well as help us determine when that apartment will become available for another visitor.
