There is a booking fee for every transaction…   Booking fees vary per property and are a percentage of the total dollar amount.  You will be told what the booking fee is before signing your agreement.
The cancellation policy is:  In the event the “Renter” decides not to occupy the rental for the period specified in the agreement, Lora Vance Realty shall retain the amounts paid to date on behalf of the owner of the property, as well as any Security Deposit, Processing fee and or Damage Waver Fee that has been paid.  A reconciliation and a refund will be given if the property is able to be booked by another party at which time there will be a refund minus a 20% cancellation fee charged to the party who has cancelled.

If there is no default then the security deposit will be refunded within 21 days.  If the property owner decides to negotiate this policy do to unforeseen circumstances, the negotiated refund will be returned minus 20% of the total including but not limited to any re-rent of said property.
