Property Access, Booking & Guidelines

The number of stay nights quota varies depending on the property and its location.

If your desired dates aren't available, you will need to consider exploring another option. We're dedicated to providing greater flexibility while expanding our portfolio of properties. Planning ahead is key, as you can now reserve up to 2 years in advance, ensuring you secure your ideal stay with ease and anticipation.

To ensure optimal utilization of the property, cancellations must be made at least 30 days prior to the first day of the booking.

As a co-owner, you are able to book stays up to 24 months in advance, and you will have visibility of the upcoming 2 full calendar years.

A 1-share co-owner is permitted to book only one star duration at a time to guarantee that all co-owners have the opportunity to spend prime time at the property. Once a co-owner has booked and stayed during a star duration, they will be allowed to book the next one.

Yes, non show ups count from your quota

If there are less than 30 days prior to the booked date, cancellation won't be applicable and the stay will be deducted from your qouta. However, you can request to swap with another co-owner and save your quota for other bookings.

Yes, subscription fees are charged on a monthly basis and are divided into 2 main components: platform fees and maintenance fees.

Partment wants you to enjoy your second home, so we maximize your allocated days by prioritizing the high season, followed by the mid-season, and allocating the fewest days to the off-peak season.

If there is a difference, it will be collected proportionately from the co-owners and added to the following month's billing cycle.

If there is an excess amount collected, Partment will return it to the co-owners within 90 days from the start of the process.

Every 5 years, starting from the issuance of the unit (i.e. unit going live), a remake assessment will take place by Partment’s technical team. Based on the report findings, a tentative portion of the property's value will be collected from the existing co-owners to keep the property up-to-standards and to renovate the depreciated aspects (i.e. swimming pool, appliances, furniture,...etc.) in order to maximize the asset appreciation value and ensure a consistent stay experience.

The maintenance fee is specific to each property and is included as part of the monthly subscription fees. This fee covers various costs including; Cost of utilities, Cost of maintenance, Cost of community maintenance (if applicable), Cost of property tax (if applicable in the location), Cost of insurance to protect co-owners against theft and other unfortunate events, and finally Cost of basic housekeeping services. All costs are divided equally among all shares. At the end of each calendar year, the maintenance fees are consolidated and compared with the total collected from each unit owner.

Every 1-share co-owner is assured at least star duration annually, coinciding with public holidays or local events in high or mid seasons. The maximum booking nights per period depend on the allocated season nights. Partment employs a fair Smart Booking System (SBS) to evenly distribute nights. Additionally, co-owners can book up to 2 years ahead for added flexibility in planning their stays.

Each co-owner will receive a prorated quota of nights and stays determined by their date of joining during the calendar year. This is to ensure fairness and transparency in the booking process until the end of the year. For subsequent full years, co-owners will receive their full agreed-upon quota.

The platform fee is specific to each property and is included as part of the monthly subscription fees. This fee covers Partment's provision of relevant technology to co-owners, enabling the best possible experience when purchasing, booking, accessing, and exiting the property/asset.

Each co-owner is responsible for transferring the monthly subscription fee in advance to Partment within 30 days after the 25th day of the previous month. For example, to pay for the monthly subscription fees of February 2025, the user has a window from January 25th, 2025, to February 25th, 2025.
