A: There is no way to address your question for lack of additional information. I recommend that you revisit the rental contract or sales deed (as may be the case) and peruse to identify what is said regarding future additional fees. If you signed a contract or deed that includes the possibility of said charges and your agreement to submit to them, then, the answer would be "yes". As a general rule (not absolute) if you are a guest, and you cause the hotel to incur in damages, you may be liable for paying what the hotel had to incur in.
