1. The property known
as "Fontaine du Roy", ("the property")
is offered for holiday rental subject to confirmation
by Mr & Mrs McNaughton ("the owner")
to the renter ("the client").
2. To reserve the property
the client must complete and sign the booking form and
return it together with payment of the initial non-refundable
deposit. Following receipt of the booking form and deposit,
the agent will send a confirmation of booking. This
is formal acceptance of the booking.
3. The balance of the
rent together with the security deposit (see clause
5) is payable not less than eight weeks before the start
of the period. If payment is not received by the due
date, the agent reserves the right to give notice in
writing that the reservation is cancelled. Reservations
made within eight weeks of the start of the rental period
require full payment at the time of booking.
4. Any chargeable expenses
arising during the rental period should be settled locally
with the owner's representative before departure.
5. A security deposit
of £150 per property for the rental period is required
in case of, for example, damage to the property or its
contents. 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 due within two weeks after the
end of the rental period.
6. Subject to clauses
2 and 3 above, in the event of a non insurable 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 doing so 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.
7. The rental period
shall commence at 4.00pm on the first day and finish
at 10.00am on the last day. The owner shall not be
obliged to offer the accommodation before the time stated
and the client shall not be entitled to remain in occupation
after the time stated.
8. The maximum to reside
in the property and use the associated facilities must
not exceed that stated on the booking form, unless the
owner has given written permission.
9. The client agrees
to be a considerate tenant, to take good care of the
property and to leave it in a clean and tidy condition
at the end of the rental period. The owner reserves
the right to retain from the security deposit amounts
to cover any additional cleaning costs if the client
leaves the property in an unacceptable condition. The
client also agrees not to act in any way that would
cause disturbance to residents in the neighbouring properties.
10. The client shall
report to the owner without delay any defects in
the property or breakdown in the equipment, plant, machinery,
or appliances in the property, garden or swimming pool
and arrangements for repair and/or replacement will
be made by the owner or their representative as
soon as possible.
11. The owner shall
not be liable to the client for any temporary defect
or stoppage in the supply of public services to the
property, nor in respect of any equipment, plant, machinery
or appliance in the property, garden or swimming pool;
neither for any loss, damage or injury which is the
result of adverse weather conditions, riot, war, strikes
or other matters beyond the control of the owner; or
for any loss, damage or inconvenience caused to or suffered
by the client if the property shall be destroyed or
substantially damaged before the start of the rental
period and in such event, the owner shall within,
seven days of notification to the client, refund to
the client all sums previously paid in respect of the
12. Under no circumstances
shall the owner's liability to the client exceed the
amount paid to the owner for the rental period.
13. The use of accommodation
and amenities where offered such as, for example, swimming
pool, etc. is entirely at the user's risk and no responsibility
can be accepted for injury to a user or visitor and
loss or damage to the user's or visitor's belongings.
14. No responsibility
can be accepted for any loss or damage to any motor
vehicle or its contents.
15. The bringing of pets
on the property is forbidden except with the written
permission of the agent.
16. The client and party
acquire no rights whatsoever over the property except
for those of occupation as a holiday let for the period
booked. The client shall not sublet the property.
