How do I cancel or alter my reservation as a tenant?

To cancel or alter your reservation, go to in your Booking Tab found in ‘’My eLands’’. There you can Alter or Cancel a booking Reservation. Please remember that when you cancel a reservation, your account will be as the party responsible for the cancellation and that may affect the outcome. For more information please have a look at the eLands Cancellation Policy.

Upon a cancellation your Booking Reservation will change its status to “Canceled’’.

Tenants who cancel their Booking Reservation are not entitled to apply for the eLands Tenant Refund Policy unless the lessor had violated the eLands Minimum Quality Standards or if the rental description does not reflect the rental space the tenant booked. For more information please have a look at the eLands Tenant Refund Policy.

If the lessor cancels the booking Reservation, the Tenant will immediately get a full refund of his or her deposit and the option to place that refund on another listing. When a lessor cancels a booking reservation his/her listing might be affected in placement on the eLands pages. For more information please have a look at the eLands Cancelation Policy



What do I do if a lessor cancels my Booking Reservation?

On such rare occasions that a lessor cancels a Booking Reservation after the deposit was processed you should rest assured that your payment is secure and will be automatically transferred fully to your eLands account.

Upon a cancelation you will be immediately notified through email and depending were you live (this service is not yet offered everywhere) you will be notified through land line or SMS.  From your eLands account you will have 2 options:

  • The first option is to transfer the deposit to another listing. This can be easily done because once the lessor/host cancels your booking request elands automatically transfers your install deposit to your account were you can use it to book another listing or which leads to,

  • The second option were you transfer the deposit you paid back (including all eLands service fees) to your bank account.

In general, refunds issued to credit cards can take 5-7 business days to be reflected on your statement after they are processed by eLands. Refunds issued to PayPal accounts occur within 24 hours.


If a host cancels your reservation during your stay, a full refund is not guaranteed since you may have to pay for the nights you stayed in the listing. eLands will reach out to you directly if this is the case



What is the eLands Cancellation Policy about?

The Cancellation policy in eLands varies depending at which point the tenant or the lessor makes a Cancellation.

We feel that it is eLands duty to best protect our tenants and lessor rights in the best way possible, and to do so we created a cancellation policy platform.

This policy varies on which party is making the cancelation.

If it is the Tenant who is making the cancelation after the booking deposit has been processed, the lessor would still be entitled to it by law. The reason for this is that after the booking was processed that space’s calendar would be marked as Booked and reserved to you. As so that space would not any longer be visible to anyone who tries to search for a space to rent during those days. To best protect both parties after a reservation booking is completed eLands considers any cancelation made from a tenant as a ‘’Last minute cancelation’’ and the lessor would still get the full booking deposit unless the tenant reports any violation made by that lessor. The tenant will have up to 24 hrs after the scheduled check in time to make any claim.  For more information visit the eLands Tenant Refund Policy

If it is the Lessor who is making the cancelation after the booking deposit was processed the tenant will get a full refund of his deposit and have the option of moving that Booking deposit to another reservation space or just getting his/ her money back in his bank account. When such actions are taken eLands opens an investigation to see if any policies were broken. When the lessor cancels a booking reservation, his/ her listing will be affected in the placement in the eLands pages and might get negative review from his/her tenants who were affected by this cancelation. We understand that there might be some rare circumstances where the lessor has no other choice but to cancel a booking reservation. Because of such extreme circumstances, such as fire or death, the lessor has the possibility to explain it to the eLands Support Team, and if provided with all the needed evidence the listing placement will not be affected. 



Can I cancel my pending reservation request?

You can cancel your reservation request at any time you wish. With that said, we would also like to point out that if your Booking request is still pending acceptance and as so you did not yet pay the deposit, you will not suffer any penalty for canceling your pending reservation.

You will only lose your deposit if you cancel your booking after you had confirmed your booking reservation.
