Please read carefully
Parties to the Agreement:
Authority to Sign
The person signing the form certifies that he/she is authorised to agree the Booking Conditions on behalf of all persons included on the holiday. The signatory must be a member of the party occupying the property and must be 18 years of age or over. Bookings cannot be accepted from parties of young people under 18 years of age.
Bookings are to be accompanied by a deposit of 20%. The balance of the rent must be paid 8 weeks before the commencement of the holiday. Non payment of the balance of the rent on or before the due date shall be construed as a cancellation of the contract by the Hirer. The full rent is payable if the occupation date is less than 28days (4 weeks) from the date of booking.
The Hirer agrees:
- To pay for any breakages, losses or damage to the property before departure. To take all reasonable and proper care of the property and leave it in a clean and tidy condition at the end of the tenancy. Particular attention must be given to the kitchen, ensuring that all equipment and utensils are left clean and tidy. The Hirer is responsible for any additional cleaning costs incurred.
- To permit the Owner / Agent reasonable access to the property to carry out any urgent maintenance.
- Not to sublet or share the property except with persons nominated when booking. The maximum number of persons allowed at the property is clearly stated and must not be exceeded. (The Owner / Agent reserves the right to terminate the hire without notice and without refund in case of a breach of this condition).
Unless explicitly excluded in the property details, a maximum of 3 pets are welcomed free, but the Owner / Agent must be notified when booking. Whilst no charge is made for pets it is on the express condition that pet owners are responsible for any extra cleaning that may be required, either in the property or in the grounds. The guiding principle is that there should be no sign of the pet's presence inside or out after departure.
- Pets MUST NOT under any circumstances be allowed on any soft furnishings or beds.
- Pets MUST have their own blankets to protect the floor coverings at all times.
- Prior consent MUST be obtained for more than the agreed number of pets in the brochure.
- Pets MUST not cause any annoyance, become a nuisance or intimidate occupants of adjoining properties.
- Pets MUST NOT, at any time, be left alone in the property.
- The breed/type of dog must be declared upon booking.
- Pet owners must never allow pets to defecate in the grounds where children may play. Failure to clean up after pets will be heavily surcharged.
If the Hirer wishes to cancel the booking for non-insurable reasons he should advise the Owner / Agent, immediately by telephone, followed by a confirmatory letter. Upon receipt of such letter the Owner / Agent will (but without any obligation to the Hirer) use their best endeavours to obtain a replacement letting and, if such replacement is obtained, will then refund to the Hirer any monies paid less a handling charge. If the Owner / Agent is unable to re-let the Owner / Agent shall be entitled to retain all payments already made and to recover, if not already paid, the balance of the hiring charge.
Non-availability of property
If, for any reason beyond the Owner / Agents control, the property is not available on the date booked, all rent paid in advance will be refunded in full. The Hirer shall have no further claims against the Owner / Agent.
There is no extra charge for VAT.

Please read and respect any warning/hazard/restriction notices that the Owner / Agent has placed in the property
