Deposits, if required by a Host, may be applied to any fees due from a Guest overstaying at a Listing without the Host’s consent.
12. Overstaying without the Host’s Consent
Guests agree that a confirmed Booking is merely a license granted by the Host to the Guest to enter and use the Listing for the limited duration of the confirmed Booking and in accordance with the Guest’s agreement with the Host. Guests further agree to leave the Accommodation no later than the checkout time that the Host specifies in the Listing or such other time as mutually agreed upon between the Host and Guest.
