The Tenant will send to us some information inquire. We will ask the tenant his/her preferences in order to look for some apartments that match with the tenant criteria. Depending on the preferences and availability, 7dreams will send a shortlist of apartments. If the tenant decides to book one of this apartments then the process will be:
- We will make sure the availability of the apartment selected for the time selected. Sometimes between the shortlist and the booking request the availability of the apartents can change so we will check it again.
- Once the availability is confirmed we will send a PRE RESERVATION FORM. In this form we will ask for some personal details: name and surname, passport number, address, name of the other tenants if necessary. We will also give you our account number in order to pay the fee. At this stage, we will BLOCK the apartment 24h
- If we received the payment of our fee then we will BOOK the apartment on the dates selected
At this point we will contact the landlord to contact you in order to prepare your arrival. We always ask to be in copy of all the emails between the landlord and the tenant so we can manage all situations.
All the prices displayed on 7DREAMS are monthly price.
When the Tenant makes a booking, the amount that we will require is the Booking Fee.
The Booking fee is a percentage of the total contract value plus the Value Added Tax.
Landlord and Tenant sign a private tenancy agreement, whatever is its formality, and whatever method was used in order to do so. It can be via email, fax, or any other telematic ways the Landlord prefers or suggests.
24 hours after the Tenant moves in according to the “check-in” section described below.
In any case, the Landlord is the one that determines, on its own discretion, the monthly rental price and any other fees to be included in the rental price or not such as utilities, internet, etc.

6. Cancellation policies
6.1 Cancellation policies for Landlords
The Landlord can, always after he/she has confirmed the Booking, cancel that Booking depending on the following terms:
In case that the Booking has been confirmed by the Landlord, and both Landlord and Tenant have signed a private lease or tenancy agreement, whichever is its form, the cancellation policies are those contained in that private lease or tenancy agreement in which, in any case, 7DREAMS is not a party. In any case, if the Landlord cancels before the Tenant moves in, the Landlord shall refund all the money sent in full to the Tenant,
In case that the Booking has been confirmed by the Landlord, and both Landlord and Tenant have not signed a private lease or tenancy agreement, whichever is its form, providing that the Landlord accepted and confirmed the Booking, if the Landlord cancels the Booking before the check-in date or before Tenant and Landlord signed a private tenancy agreement, the Landlord will refund all the money sent in full back to tenant.
EXCLUSION OF RIGHT TO WITHDRAW AND CANCELLATION OF PRE-CONTRACT
European Union legislation provides users with a right of withdrawal upon entering into an online agreement (distance selling). The right of withdrawal shall be excluded after full performance of 7DREAMS’s service. 7DREAMS’s service is fully performed once a landlord has accepted a booking request by a user.
The potential 7DREAMS user hereby declares the following: “I hereby explicitly consent that 7DREAMS immediately starts performance of the service by forwarding my service request to a landlord before my statutory right of withdrawal ends. I am fully aware that I will lose my right of withdrawal as soon as 7DREAMS fully performs the agreement, i.e. upon acceptance of my service request by the landlord.”
The potential 7DREAMS user has the right to withdraw from a pre-contract without giving a reason and before signing a lease contract with the landlord. The withdrawal has to be declared in writing via e-mail to help@7DREAMS.com. In this case, the potential 7DREAMS user will be refunded in accordance with our cancellation policies for tenants.
6.2 Cancellation policies for Tenants
If you, as Tenant, cancel the requested booking before the requested booking is confirmed by the Landlord, 7DREAMS will cancel any pre-authorization to your credit card, paypal account and/or refund any nominal amounts charged to your card in connection with the requested booking within a commercially reasonable time.
If the Booking has been confirmed and the Tenant cancels, the Booking Fee will never be refunded by 7DREAMS. In fact, in any case, unless exceptional circumstances or if the Landlord cancels the Booking according to provisions contained above, 7DREAMS will, on its own discretion, refund the Booking Fee.
There are three (3) cancellation policies for Tenants which the Landlord can select, on its own discretion. The Cancellation policy selected will be shown on the listing. If the listing does not show any cancellation policy, the Standard one of below applies. This cancellation policies apply in the absence of a private tenancy agreement already signed between Landlord and Tenant. If that was the case, the cancellation policies to apply are those contained in that private Lease Agreement. Also, the listing might content the lease agreement to be signed when checking in, in which case, the cancellation policies on it will apply though the lease agreement has not yet been signed.
In the absence of a private Lease Agreement signed between Landlord and Tenant of which 7DREAMS is not party, and always after the Booking was confirmed by the Landlord according to the provisions explained above, the 3 possible cancellation policies are:
FLEXIBLE. If the Tenant cancels the booking:
less than 3 days prior the check-in date, 7DREAMS will not refund the amount already captured after the booking confirmation. Thus, the Tenant will lose the Booking fee.
between 3 days and 30 days before the check-in date, 7DREAMS will refund50% of the Booking fee.
more than 30 days before the check-in date, 7DREAMS will refund the 100% of the booking fee.
STANDARD. If the Tenant cancels the booking:
less than 30 days prior the check-in date, 7DREAMS will not refund the amount already captured after the booking confirmation. Thus, the Tenant will lose the Booking fee.
between 30 days and 60 days before the check-in date, 7DREAMS will refund 50% of the booking fee.
more than 60 days before the check-in date, 7DREAMS will refund the 100% of the booking fee to the tenant.
STRICT. In any case, whenever the Tenant cancels the Booking, 7DREAMS will not refund any amount received by the Tenant.
For the avoidance of doubt, the Landlord is the only one, on its own discretion, who selects the cancellation policy and 7DREAMS takes no responsibility in that decision.
In case, the Landlord does not select any of the 3 cancellation policies, meaning that the policy selected is not reflected in the listing, the Strict policy applies by default.
Indication of Cancellation
1) If the Tenant wants to change or modify the conditions of the booking confirmed, it will be considered as a cancellation of the booking. This cancellation will apply the rules above.
2) The Tenant could give an indication of its desire to cancel the booking by phone, email, whatsapp, or by any other way, it will be an indication of the desire of cancelling the booking. Therefore, the 7DREAMS team will send an email to the Tenant reflecting the fact that led to that indication and will give to the Tenant 24 hours to either confirm the cancellation or otherwise the Booking. If the 7DREAMS team does not receive any of both confirmations or instructions, the Booking will be automatically cancelled and the cancellation policy will apply transferring to the Landlord the corresponding amount. In case that the indication occurs within 48 hours before 9 a.m. of the check-in date (local time), the limit time to confirm the cancellation or otherwise booking is 48 hours before of check-in date, meaning 9 a.m. (local time) of the day before the date of the check-in.
