Vacation Rentals & Applicable Laws
Vacation Rentals & Applicable Laws - Holiday Rentals
The vacation rentals agreement stipulates the applicable law. In most cases, the applicable law is the law of the state or country where the holiday rentals are located. This is the norm and makes sense.
The renter might be from county A while the owner lives in B, the vacation rentals property is in C and the website is in D; in this case, the contract will either apply the laws of C or D.
If the website is operated by a holiday rentals agency, it acts as an intermediary and, therefore, will require you to sign an individual contract specific to it.
If a vacation rentals property is located in Miami and the owner/manager of the holiday rentals is located in Miami, the contract will in all likelihood be under Florida Law.
If a property is located in Miami and the owner/manager of the vacation rentals is located in France the contract will likely be under the Florida State Law; less likely, it can follow French Law.
If any issues or complaints arise, the applicable law determines where litigation will be held (i.e. Miami or France). Owners of holiday rentals will not negotiate on this article of the contract.
