To reserve the Property, the Client should complete and sign the booking form and return it with confirmation of payment, direct into Owners bank account, of initial non-refundable deposit (25% of the total rent due). Following receipt of the booking form and deposit, the Owners will send a confirmation email. This is the formal acceptance of the booking.
BALANCE & CANCELLATIONS
The balance of the rent together with a security deposit (see clause 5) is payable not less than eight weeks before the start of the rental period. If payment is not received by the due date, the Owners reserve the right to give notice in writing by email or post that the reservation is cancelled. The client will remain liable to pay the balance of the rent unless the Owners are able to re-let the Property. In this event clause 6 of these booking conditions will apply. Reservations made within eight weeks of the start of the rental period require full payment at the time of booking.
Any chargeable expenses arising during the rental period (e.g. telephone, email, Internet charges) should be settled direct with the owner before departure.
Subject to clauses 2 and 3 above, in the event of cancellation, refunds of amounts paid will be made if the Owner is able to re-let the ‘Property’, and any expenses or losses incurred in so doing will be deducted from the refundable amount. The client is strongly recommended to arrange a comprehensive travel insurance policy (including cancellation cover) and to have full cover for the party’s personal belongings, public liability etc, since these are not covered by the Owner’s insurance.
For La Petite Maison a security deposit of £100 or 120 Euros per week or part week of rental per unit is required in case of, for example, damage to the property or its contents. For all other units it is £150 or 175 Euro. However, the sum reserved by this clause shall not limit the Client’s liability to the Owner. The Owner will account to the Client for the security deposit and refund the balance within two weeks of the end of the rental period.
The Client agrees to be a considerate tenant and to take good care of the Property and to leave it in a clean and tidy condition at the end of the rental period. Although a final clean is included in the prices, the Owners reserve the right to make a retention from the security deposit to cover additional cleaning costs if the Client leaves the Property in an unacceptable condition.
