Amazing Accom (AA) is an online accommodation booking and payment website that both Renters and Property Owners/Managers use equally. The two core functions of the website are:
a) To provide Renters with quality accommodation solutions in a safe online environment that is logical, easy to use, and fully automated. When an accommodation booking is completed online, the Renter is automatically connected with the property Owner/Manager to directly organise the check in and arrival time.
b) To provide Property Owners/Managers with a completely automated, safe and logical online environment in which they easily manage and control all aspects of their property listing, in order to get fully automated streamlined bookings.
AA is not a property management company and takes no responsibility for Property Owner/Manager related issues.

Between Amazing Accom Limited (Agent) and Property Manager/Owner (Registered Proprietor of the Accommodation or an authorised representative of the registered proprietor/s):
The Property Manager/Owner, prior to listing Accommodation on the Agent's website and prior to updating its Accommodation details on the website from time to time, agrees with the Agent as follows:
The Property Manager/Owner, on behalf of all of the legal owners of the Accommodation to be listed on the Amazing Accom website, authorises Amazing Accom Limited to act as its agent on the terms and conditions set out below with respect to any future holiday tenancies of the Accommodation that Amazing Accom book.
I, the Property Manager/Owner, acknowledge and agree that the terms and conditions on which the Accommodation will be let to tenants are the Holiday Tenancy Terms and Conditions between Property Manager/Owner and Tenant (Tenancy Terms and Conditions).
I confirm I have read the Renter T&Cs, I understand them, I agree with them, and I authorise Amazing Accom Limited to act as my agent in respect of the future operation of them and this Authority.
1. I INSTRUCT AMAZING ACCOM LIMITED AS MY AGENT TO:
1.1 Collect all deposits and balance rent payments owing from time to time from tenants in respect of the Accommodation, and to pay them out in accordance with clause 2 below.
1.2 Market the Accommodation and arrange holiday tenancies.
2. AGENT'S FEES
2.1 The Agent is entitled to be paid and remunerated for its services:
2.1.1 Upon booking confirmation being sent, the Agent is entitled to deduct and bank the non refundable total agreed commission fees payable under the total booking value, from any rents collected (including deposit). If the Landlord cancels any booking for any reason, the landlord is liable for the total commission fee on the total booking value. The Agent will choose to either deduct the commission off of future rental earnings payable to the landlord, or invoice the landlord for immediate payment.
2.1.2 The Agent guarantees to pay the total received amount, (less the agreed Agent's Fees) into my nominated bank account on the 1st working day after that booking/tenant has checked in. This is to ensure the renter gets what they paid for, and one of the many reasons why renters choose to book your accommodation safely through Amazing Accom. However, if the renter does not check into the relative property paid for online, and payment was made by credit card, in this case the Agent cannot release payment until the credit card funds are cleared, and not reversable by the card holder.
2.2 If the Property Owner/Manager cancels any booking for any reason, the renter will receive a full refund of the deposited amount and the Property Owner/Manager is liable for the lost commission fee on the total booking value. The Agent will choose to either deduct the commission off of future rental earnings payable to the Property Owner/Manager, or invoice the Property Owner/Manager for immediate payment. If the booking made originated from a 3rd party provider then the Property Owner/Manager may be subject to further cancellation fees.
2.3 If the renter cancels within the Property Owner/Manager’s specified Cancellation period FAIR (60 days) RELAXED (30 Days) EASY (7 days) prior to the Tenancy check in date, all bookings are final, non-refundable, and not transferable. The Property Owner/Manager will receive a full pay out minus AA full or 50% commission (depending on whether AA holds full booking value amount or 50% deposit only). 2.3.1. When a renter cancels outside the Property Owner/Manager’s specified Cancellation period (FAIR (60 days) RELAXED (30 Days) EASY (7 days)) prior to the Tenancy check in date, The Renter will receive a full refund to the value of the deposit paid/funds received by AA except a service fee of 5% on the total booking value. The Property Owner/Manager will receive no pay out. 2.3.2. If the booking made originated from a 3rd party provider as agreed by the Property Owner/Manager, the Property Owner/Manager may be subject to those third party Terms and Conditions and the listed policies on AA may be overridden.
2.4 The Agent's Fees are inclusive of New Zealand Good and Services Tax (GST). I am responsible for all other tax payments (if any) to the relevant authorities and according to the laws of my country/region.
2.5 I agree to reimburse the Agent in full for any amount received by the Agent via a tenant’s online payment that MasterCard, Visa, or any credit card company, subsequently reverses through no fault of the Agent.
2.6 International Money Transfer (IMT) payments to the Landlord. The Agent will incur the (IMT) sending costs charged by the Bank of New Zealand (BNZ). The Landlord will incur their relative bank charges/costs for receiving the funds sent.
3. I AGREE:
3.1 To manage my availability calendar 100% accurately and to honor all holiday bookings made through the Agent and its website regardless of the length of time prior to the holiday tenancy the booking was made, and notwithstanding that I may have omitted to block-out dates in the online calendar to reserve the Accommodation for personal or alternative use for the period of occupation of a confirmed holiday tenancy. In the event that I fail to honor a booking, the Agent reserves the right to deduct the Agent's Fees on that dishonored booking from any future earnings I may be owed on any accommodation booked through the Agent. In the event that the Accommodation is removed from the AA site I agree to compensate the Agent its Agent's Fees on any dishonored booking(s) upon being invoiced by the agent.
3.2 To advise the Agent immediately if the Accommodation is put on the market for sale. In the event that the Accommodation is sold prior to the commencement of any and all confirmed holiday tenancies, and the new owner of the Accommodation does not agree to honor the bookings, I agree to refund to the Agent all monies received by me from the Agent in relation to the confirmed holiday bookings, immediately. I agree to compensate the Agent for any loss of Agent's Fees it may suffer as a result of the sale of the Accommodation;
3.3 To keep the Accommodation fully insured against such risks as are normally covered by a comprehensive policy relevant to the type of accommodation and frequency of holiday tenancy use and/or for holiday letting purposes;
3.4 To provide a completed Information Booklet/compendium that contains details relevant to the Accommodation for use by the Tenant, for example:
3.4.1 A trouble-shoot action plan setting out the procedure for the efficient and effective resolution of any problems relating to the Accommodation during the holiday tenancy;
3.4.2 Details of rubbish collection days and times (and recycling requirements) and any additional requirements;
3.4.3 Operational manuals, codes and details for all electronic appliances and devices; and
3.4.4 A list of contact details for preferred tradesman and servicemen and any other contacts that are familiar with the Accommodation and are available to assist with resolving any problems;
3.5 To ensure that, prior to a Tenant's arrival, the interior and exterior of the Accommodation is, in all respects, fit for occupation as a luxury holiday home and meets the high standard required by the Agent and by the tenant booking luxury accommodation through the AA site, and is in accordance with all Accommodation information content posted on the Agent's website;
3.6 That in relation to the photographic and textual material supplied by me to the Agent in relation to the Accommodation (Material), I represent and warrant that:
3.6.1 I own the copyright in the Material; or
3.6.2 I have been authorised by the owner of the copyright in the Material to grant the Agent permission to use the Material as contemplated in this clause;
3.7 I hereby grant the Agent a perpetual, royalty-free licence to use the Material for promotional purposes (including marketing and public relations material throughout the world’s media channels including but not limited to: digital, SEM, SEO, subscription based websites, specialist directories, directories, articles submissions, books, television, and any other sources deemed as advertising, public relations, and/or marketing channels). I irrevocably and unconditionally indemnify the Agent against any cost, loss or liability (including legal costs) which the Agent may incur by reason of any breach of copyright arising from the Agent's use of the Material. I understand that I may not reproduce photographic or textual material from any part of the Agent's website without permission from the relevant copyright owner.
3.8 To always maintain a unique name for the Accommodation. The reason for this is due to the fact that the Agent works on a success fee structure and spends tens of thousands of dollars every month on marketing extensively both domestically and internationally, however if an accommodation has its own website or is listed in other places with the same name as stated on the Amazing Accom website then the Agent’s clients could book direct with me or via an alternative source by using a Search Engine such as Google to find me. This means the Agent would have paid for the client to find me but would not have earned any commission. The agent deserves to be remunerated fairly and according to its terms and conditions. Amazing Accom (AA) reserves the right to change the name of any accommodation at anytime that is in breach of this clause. My honesty in this regard is of paramount importance and any breach by me of this clause may result in suspension or permanent removal from the Amazing Accom website. I understand that once a booking is made online through the Amazing Accom website the Tenant receives notification of the correct legal name of the Accommodation.
3.9 To implement fair pricing. For Accommodation owners whom are not exclusive on Amazing Accom the pricing you set up online here must be equal to or less than what is being charged and/or advertising on other websites and/or being communicated through any other booking channels. This excludes last minute deals that may be done from time to time.
4. I ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE:
4.1 That any dispute regarding the Accommodation including, but not limited to, the condition of the Accommodation and any damages and/or any breakages, is solely between myself and the tenant, and that the Agent will not be involved in any such dispute or be liable to anyone in any way. The Agent recommends that I regularly take and hold a complete and dated photographic record of the Accommodation;
4.2 Accommodation advertised on the Agent's website pertains to one Accommodation only, nor examples of accommodation in a certain region. Only one Accommodation will be represented in an advertisement. The Agent has the right to amend any Accommodation advertisements not adhering to this clause;
4.3 That if the Agent receives substantiated complaints from any number of its site users about a specific Accommodation page misrepresenting the Accommodation, or its surroundings, then the Agent reserves the right to remove the Accommodation page without notice. If I attempt to enter unsuitable material into the online database, or persistently misuse the on-line systems, the Agent has the right to remove the associated Accommodation page(s) from the website. The Agent has the right to refuse or remove any Accommodation page from its website that it considers unsuitable, incomplete or misleading, and will not be liable for any expense in so doing. The Agent has the right to refuse any Accommodation page from its website where the content fails to meet its minimum requirements. If I wish to have my Accommodation page(s) removed from the website, this will be done as soon as the Agent receives formal notice from me by email;
4.4 That in the interests of maintaining a high level of service to users of the website, the Agent requires me to be available to respond to enquiries by telephone or email. If I am unavailable for a period of more than 1 week I will leave an answerphone message to that effect or set up an out of office response on my email account. If neither of these options is viable, I will contact the Agent so it can temporarily suspend my current Accommodation page(s). The Agent reserves the right to suspend my advertisement if I am unreachable for more than 1 week. In this instance the Agent will send messages by telephone and email asking me to request re-activation upon my return.
4.5 That the Agent is acting as my agent at all times and not as principal in the holiday tenancy leasing of the Accommodation; and
4.6 That either party may terminate this agreement by giving two calendar months' notice in writing. In the event that the agreement is cancelled I will honor all future confirmed bookings and agree to pay the Agent its Agent's Fees in respect of all future confirmed bookings. The Accommodation is available to let from the date of I upload the Accommodation to the AA site or as otherwise advised by me in writing/email to the Agent.
4.7 Any notice required to be in writing must be served by one of the following means: personal delivery; posting by ordinary mail, or email. I confirm that I have authority to enter into this agreement on behalf of all other owners of the Accommodation.
