Berthing fees and invoicing
Anyone who has paid for a previous season’s berth will automatically be sent a new invoice during March. By paying the invoice by the due date, the tenant will secure the berth for the upcoming rental period. At the same time, the tenant undertakes to abide by the applicable leasing terms of the berths. Unpaid berths are immediately available for rental.
Invoices that are sent with incorrect address information often do not reach the holder of the berth, which assumes that the location is no longer wanted. That is why it is very important to report any change of address either by calling +358 6 325 4034 or by sending an email to email@example.com.
