§ 3 Services, prices, payment, deposit, set-off
a) The customer is obligated to pay the agreed price of the Yellow House Immobilien GmbH for the leasing of the apartment(s) and the services made use of by the customer. This also holds for services of the Yellow House Immobilien GmbH arranged by the customer for a third party. If there is no price arrangement, the prices as listed in the Internet (www.yellow-house.com) are considered as content of the contract.

Revenues gained by a letting of the not used apartment to somebody else will be credited. It rests with the customer to submit evidence to the letting to somebody else.
b) In case of an objectively justifiable reason the Yellow House Immobilien GmbH is entitled to withdraw from a contract. Reasons objectively regarded as justifiable are especially cases of force majeure or other circumstances for which the Yellow House Immobilien GmbH is not responsible, which make it impossible to fulfil a contract.
In case of a legitimate withdrawal of the Yellow House Immobilien GmbH the customer is not entitled to compensation.
§ 5 Provision of the apartments
a) The customer does not acquire the right to be provided with a specific apartment.
b) The Yellow House Immobilien GmbH may provide the contracting party or customer with an adequate substitute accommodation (same quality), if this can be expected of the customer.

§ 6 Liability and limitation
a) For loss or damage occurring to the apartment or its furnishing during the period of lease the customer is liable to the Yellow House Immobilien GmbH. This is, as long as the damage verifiably has not occurred due to a cause which lies within the sphere of responsibility of the Yellow House Immobilien GmbH. If the Yellow House Immobilien GmbH provides the customer with technical or other equipment by a third party, the Yellow House Immobilien GmbH (with regard to authorisation and billing) acts on behalf of the customer, who is liable for the careful use and the proper return, and keeps the Yellow House Immobilien GmbH indemnified against all liabilities by third parties.
b) The liability of the Yellow House Immobilien GmbH for its obligations as held down in the contract is restricted to intent and gross negligence by the Yellow House Immobilien GmbH or persons consigned with the fulfilment of the obligations on part of the Yellow House Immobilien GmbH. This holds as long as it does not involve harm to life, body or health or negligent violation of contract coherent obligations by the Yellow House Immobilien GmbH.
c) The Yellow House Immobilien GmbH is liable to the customer for property brought into the apartment according to the statutory provisions providing that a liability is given only if the property was committed to the Yellow House GmbH or a person assigned and authorised by the Yellow House Immobilien GmbH or was brought to a place destined for it by Yellow House Immobilien GmbH. A liability exceeding the standard amounts as laid down in § 702 BGB amounting to one hundred times the apartment's rent for one day or a maximum of 3,500 € or 800 € for cash, securities of valuables is expressly ruled out, as long as the loss, destruction or damage was not caused by an intentional or grossly negligent behaviour on side of the Yellow House Immobilien GmbH.
§ 7 Period of limitation
Any claims against the Yellow House Immobilien GmbH shall generally be time-barred one year after the commencement of the general statute of limitations dependent upon knowledge of § 199 subparagraph I BGB (German Civil Code).
§ 8 Final provisions
Place of fulfilment and place of payment is the place of residence of the Yellow House Immobilien GmbH in Aachen.
In case the contracting partner fulfils the requirements of the § 38 subparagraph II ZPO (civil process order) the exclusive place of jurisdiction is - also with regard check and bill disputes - Aachen.
The contracting parties are bound by German law. The application of conflict of laws is excluded.
If and to the extent to which any provisions of this contract should be void or infeasible or should lose their validity or feasibility, this shall not affect the validity of the other provisions of this contract. The same shall apply, if the provisions of the contract are found to be incomplete. The invalid, infeasible or incomplete provision shall be replaced by an appropriate provision, which, as far as legally feasible, most nearly achieves what the contractual parties would have intended or would have intended in accordance with the purpose of the contract, if they had considered this point when concluding this contract.
