Should the Owner be dissatisfied with the condition of the property upon the Customer’s departure, they may refuse to take a booking from the Customer again.

FEES

1.    Deposit. Your booking will only be confirmed following receipt of the relevant holding deposit. If a booking is made 4 weeks or more before the letting is due to start, the Customer must pay a deposit equal to 50% of the letting fee. If a booking is made 30 days before the letting is due to start, the full letting fee plus any security bond, plus any additional charges, must be paid by the Customer at the time of booking.


2.    If a deposit has been made, the balance or final payment is payable 30 days before the letting is due to start (‘the Due Date’).


3.    Non-payment by the Due Date will be treated as a cancellation and the deposit will be forfeited.


4.    Security Bond. The Owners reserve the right to charge for any losses, damage, delayed departure or any cleaning necessary over and above normal servicing. By accepting our terms and conditions, the Customer authorises the Owner to deduct payment up to the value of £200 from the Customer’s credit card or debit card.  The Customer acknowledges that this does not limit the liability for damages in excess of this amount. The security bond ensures that the property is left damage free, with keys and without the need for any excessive extra cleaning. Extra cleaning includes stain removal from carpets and linen and non-bagging of rubbish. We will also charge for loss of keys along with any call out charges incurred as a result of user error, noise complaints or replacement keys whilst using the property. Should money be taken from your bond there will also be a charge of £5 + VAT admin processing charge along with 1.95% card processing charge.  If paying by cheque please make cheques payable to George & Josefina Smith for the amount of £200. Cheques should be sent to G.Smith, 16 Wynches Farm Drive St Albans, AL4 0XH. Should the Owners need to take any costs from the Customer, the cheque for the full amount will be cashed and the remaining amount sent back to you in the form of a return cheque along with your statement. The Owners’ decision on costings is final.  


5.    Cancellation: Our cancellation terms are as follows:

a.    If a customer pays the full balance on time, they can receive a 50% refund of the total cost if they cancel at least four weeks before check-in.

b.    If the customer cancels before paying the balance or does not pay the balance on time, the booking deposit is not refunded and the booking is cancelled automatically.

OCCUPATION TIMES

Occupation commences after 1530 (unless specifically stated otherwise), on the commencement date of the holiday and terminates at 0930 on the termination date of the holiday.  A charge of £50 will be made for any late vacations with no exceptions.  It is important that properties are vacated by the agreed time to ensure cleaners have sufficient time to make the property re-available for the next guests. Occasionally it may be possible to arrange a late departure time with prior arrangement via your agent although this cannot be guaranteed.

LINEN

 The property is equipped with bed linen, sheets and pillowcases. Linen and blankets for cots are not supplied and should be brought by the visitor. Beach towels are not provided.

Disclaimer: The Owners have taken every care to ensure the accuracy of property descriptions on their website and in their brochure, and all information is provided in good faith and is believed to be correct.

In the event that any individual term or clause stated in this contract is not permissible by law, the remainder of the Contract shall remain valid.

This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the Laws of England and shall be subject to the jurisdiction of the English Courts

This does not affect your statutory rights
