TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF BOOKING
General Jill and Richard Horswill are referred to as ‘the Owners’. The apartment is referred to as ‘the Property’. Clients applying to rent the Property are referred to as ‘the Applicants’ until such time as they take up residence when they are referred to as ‘the Tenants’. ‘Rent’ means the weekly payment to be paid for renting the Property.
Booking Applicants are advised to check availability by contacting the Owners. The booking form with terms and conditions can be printed from the website or, if required, the Owners will send a copy to the Applicant by post. Bookings will only be deemed to be accepted when made in writing to the Owners on the booking form, signed by the Applicant and accompanied by a cheque for the required amount. Telephone reservations are not regarded as bookings until the above booking conditions have been complied with.
Deposit A non returnable deposit of £100 per week is payable on booking. If a booking is made 6 weeks or less before arrival the full Rent is due at the time of the booking.
Final Payment A final invoice will normally be sent to the Applicant 8 weeks before the date of their holiday. Payment must be made in full, 6 weeks prior to the arrival date. Non payment by that date will be treated as a cancellation and the Applicant accepts that the owners may relet the property. The Applicant remains liable for the full amount, although credit will be given for any rents received as a result of reletting, less the Owners’ expenses. The same will apply to a cancellation within 6 weeks of the arrival date.
Security deposit A security deposit of £100 is charged at the time the balance of the rent is paid, to cover damage and breakages which will be refundable within 14 days of the departure date as long as no damage has been incurred. If there has been damage or breakages the amount for repair will be deducted from the security deposit.
Cancellation Insurance Applicants are recommended to take out holiday cancellation insurance.
Price changes The Owners reserve the right to amend prices quoted on the website.
Method of payment Payments are to be made by cheque made payable to Mrs J Horswill. Do not send cash. Post dated cheques are not accepted. Any charges raised against the Owners by their bank for handling cheques or converting currency will be passed on to the Applicant.
