Add Services for vacation rental price calculation
Services are all costs (fix or variable) that you wish to add when you define the price of an apartment (to link Owner rent to your final price). Before adding an apartment into the system, you have to define the services included.

It opens a table displaying all existing services (on the left) and services use on properties (on the right side):

- Mode: you can decide to ask payment of a service in the deposit or in the balance (or in both). Ex. you may want the customer to pay the city tax, at latest, ie in the Balance.
