PART I: GENERAL PROVISIONS 

ARTICLE 1. GENERAL

These General Terms and Conditions apply to any provision of (bed)rooms and any associated facilities and/or services to third parties by YUST Hotel Antwerp NV and YUST Food & Events Antwerp NV (Antwerp office) or Yust Housing Liège BV and Yust Food & Events Liège BV, hereinafter referred to as “YUST”, as well as to the arrangement of overnight stays, activities, or events by third parties, hereinafter referred to as the “Customer”, as described in the quotation.

These General Terms and Conditions, together with the House Rules and the quotation accepted by the Client, constitute the Agreement between the Parties.

By confirming YUST’s offer (either by email or by signing the offer) the Agreement between the Parties is irrevocably concluded, and the Client agrees to these General Terms and Conditions. By accepting them, the Customer expressly waives their own General Terms and Conditions, including those that may appear in any document prior to the acceptance of these General Terms and Conditions. Accordingly, Customer’s own General Terms and Conditions are not enforceable against YUST.

ARTICLE 2. QUOTATION AND PAYMENT TERMS

Unless expressly stated otherwise in the quotation, each quotation is valid for one week from the date it is sent to the Customer.

By the time the quotation is confirmed (either by email or by signing the quotation) the Customer shall provide YUST with their full invoicing details by email. Billing details include the company’s name, company type, registered office address and VAT (or PO) number. If these details are not provided in good time, the Customer’s confirmation of the quotation shall be irrevocably considered as non-existent.

Any changes to the quotation at the request of the Customer should be communicated to YUST in writing no later than eight calendar days before the stay/event. Thereafter, no changes are possible, for operational reasons.

All prices mentioned in the quotation are in EURO and exclusive of VAT.

After receiving the Customer’s confirmation of the quotation, YUST shall send the Customer an advance invoice for 30% of the total amount of the quotation, by email. Unless otherwise stated on the invoice, it shall be payable within one week of being sent.

Any advance payment shall be deducted from the final invoice. Both the advance payments and the final invoices are to be paid to the online payment provider, STICHTING MOLLIE PAYMENTS, mentioning the structured communication stated on the invoice.

If the Customer fails to pay the advance payments by the deadline indicated on the invoice, YUST shall be entitled to cancel the approved quotation without any compensation. In that event, YUST shall charge a compensation fee equivalent to the cancellation fee in force at the time the advance payments were due. The Customer is YUST’s sole contracting party and is solely responsible for correct and timely payment.

In the event of non-payment or late payment, YUST shall also be entitled, by operation of law and without notice of default, to charge interest on arrears at a rate of 3% for each started month, as well as a compensation fee of 10% of the invoice amount (with a minimum of EUR 150.00).

Prices are subject to revision if more than six months elapse between the confirmation of the reservation and the stay/event/activity and unexpected price increases occur as a result of, for example, additional taxes or a price increase in the materials and/or goods used If the price of the approved quotation is reduced by more than 30% as a result of changes requested by the Customer, YUST has the right to revise the prices for the remaining part of the quotation as well.

ARTICLE 3. CANCELLATION POLICY

In the event of cancellation by the Customer up to eight calendar days before the stay/event, the advance payment already due shall be definitively acquired by YUST as a cancellation fee.

In the event of cancellation within eight calendar days of the stay/event, a cancellation fee of 100% of the total quotation amount shall be payable. This amount shall become due immediately upon cancellation.

A request to reduce the reserved period of stay or the number of persons shall be considered a cancellation of the stay for the reduced period or reduced number of persons.

The aforementioned cancellation fee shall apply without prejudice to any additional fees due to costs already incurred by YUST, orders placed, or stricter cancellation conditions imposed by third parties. The cancellation fees become due upon cancellation by the Customer and are payable within ten calendar days. Any advance payments received shall be deducted from the cancellation fees due.

COVID-19: If, at the time of the stay/event, there are no travel or movement restrictions imposed by the authorities, the above cancellation policy shall apply without prejudice. Where travel or movement restrictions apply and the stay/event cannot take place on the date(s) planned, the Customer is entitled to change the dates of their stay/event under the same conditions, free of charge. YUST shall in this case be entitled to retain any advance payment received in respect of the rescheduled stay/event or the stay/event to be rescheduled.

ARTICLE 4. FACILITIES

YUST makes a number of basic facilities available to the Customer (water, electricity, heating and Wi-Fi).
Excessive use of these facilities shall be charged to the Customer. Amongst other things, charging electric (shared) scooters, (shared) bikes etc., other than those owned by YUST and rented/provided to the Customer, is expressly forbidden. The Customer’s own bicycles and those provided by YUST may be charged at the appropriate charging points.

ARTICLE 5. TERMINATION OF THE AGREEMENT BY YUST

YUST may terminate the Agreement at any time by registered letter in the event of serious error by the Customer, some examples of which are set out in the non-exhaustive list below:

In the event of the Agreement being terminated as a result of serious error by the Customer, the Customer shall pay the full price, without prejudice to compensation for the damages actually incurred by YUST as a result of this serious error. All obligations, costs or expenses incurred by YUST on the Customer’s behalf must be paid by the Customer. All such amounts shall become immediately due and payable without prior notice of default.

ARTICLE 6. PROHIBITION ON PETS

Pets are prohibited.

ARTICLE 7. LIABILITY

The Customer shall inform YUST immediately if any damage occurs, or threatens to occur, in the rooms or dorms, in the space(s) provided (whether to the room itself, goods or technical systems), or in YUST’s publicly accessible areas. The Customer is liable for any nuisance or damage, which is directly or indirectly caused by the Customer or the Customer’s guests and visitors, except where such damage is the result of normal use or wear and tear.

Each instance of nuisance or damage caused by the Customer which gives rise to extra cleaning or laundry services will automatically incur a flat-rate charge of EUR 100.00. This is without prejudice to compensation for the repair or replacement of damaged furniture, curtains, decorations, etc., or damage to the rooms, dorms, space(s) provided or the publicly accessible areas.

The Customer shall not make any alterations to the rooms, dorms or spaces provided, or make any holes, use any nails, screws, glue or adhesive material, etc. in the walls, floors or ceiling of the rooms or dorms.

YUST cannot be held responsible for a contractual failure if this is the result of force majeure situations that cannot be attributed to it, such as (but not limited to) strikes, fire, government actions and measures, terrorist threats, etc.

If damage or loss occurs as a result of an attributable failure on the part of one of YUST’s service providers, compensation for the damage or loss to the Customer shall be limited to the compensation that YUST receives from the service provider concerned.

In any event, YUST’s liability shall be limited to the value of the Agreement, or the compensation paid to YUST by a third party or the insurance company as compensation for the damage or loss incurred.

The Customer must prove that any damage to, or loss or theft of their property occurred in YUST and was due to acts or omissions of YUST or YUST’s service providers. Unless the Customer provides such proof, YUST or the service provider employed by YUST shall not be liable for damage to goods and persons, or loss or theft.
YUST cannot be held responsible for any theft of or damage to the Customer’s goods that are temporarily stored in one of the communal areas of the building, as these areas are always accessible to both YUST’s residents and third parties.

YUST is not responsible for any damage or loss for which the Customer is or should have been insured.

The Customer is responsible for the guests and invitees to whom they grant access to the building. YUST shall not be held liable for any damage or loss caused by these persons, nor for any damage or nuisance caused by particular items brought into the building by the Customer. The Customer is solely responsible for any damage caused by their own acts or omissions (whether unlawful or not) or those of their guests and visitors. The same applies to animals in the custody of the Customer or their guests and visitors. Any damage caused by the Group will immediately incur a charge by YUST.

Without prejudice to the foregoing, YUST shall be liable for damage to or loss of property which the Customer or Group has placed in YUST’s care in return for payment.

However, compensation for damage or loss shall be limited to the market value of the item(s) concerned. YUST shall not be liable for the contents of goods placed in its care. For example, the contents of a wallet shall only be compensated if, at the time of depositing, the Customer has notified YUST of them in writing. YUST can never be held liable for goods that have not been placed in its care in return for payment.

ARTICLE 8. IMPOSSIBILITY OF PERFORMANCE/ FORCE MAJEURE

In the event of force majeure, YUST has the right to suspend performance of the Agreement, in which case Customer may not claim any compensation from YUST.

COMMUNAL AREAS, MEETINGS AND NOISE NUISANCE

Peaceful enjoyment in the daytime and a good night’s rest for all guests is a priority for YUST.

You have free access to the communal areas in the premises. In addition, for the Hotel guests a communal kitchen and eating area has been provided as well as a separate seating area.

YUST highly recommends use of the facilities present in the communal areas. These facilities are, as it were, an extension of your private accommodation

and serve as a meeting place for you and other guests.

We ask you to take into account a number of specific rules for each area to enable guests to use the communal areas as optimally and pleasantly as possible. The rules of usage are separately and clearly displayed in each area. These rules are part of the present House Rules and you and your guests have to meet them at all times.

In any case, we thank you for always leaving the communal areas clean and tidy. Otherwise YUST will charge you for the full cleaning and clearing costs. Also all costs of damage caused by you will be charged to you. Compensation comprises the full repair or clearing costs as estimated by an expert or contractor assigned by the parties, with a minimum flat fee for damage of 250.00 EUR.

Your guests and visitors are welcome in the YUST communal areas. To prevent nuisance as well as for fire-safety reasons we ask you to inform YUST reception beforehand that you want to organise a meeting with more than five external guests.

To prevent noise in the communal areas and nuisance in the rooms and residential units occupied by the other guests, access to the rooftop terrace and the shared kitchen is prohibited after 11:00 pm. Gatherings and music organised by tenants or hotel guests in the communal areas after 11:00 pm are also not allowed.

If explicitly stated, fire and emergency doors have to remain closed at all times.

For blocking fire routes, fire exits and fire escapes or using the emergency exit without there being an emergency, compensation of 150.00 EUR will be charged immediately.
