Holiday Home Rental Agreement
This agreement protects both tenants and landlords in the event of any problems or discrepancies and must be signed and returned. We thank you for your co-operation.
To ensure our properties are not “over worked” we have advised how many people each home accommodates. With this in mind and to prevent problems of discomfort to our tenants, we do not allow any more people in the premises than quoted. All guests are to be listed on the application form. The landlord may immediately cancel the booking & evict without refund of rent and/or bond if this condition is not adhered to. Tents, caravans (unless approved) , swags or houseboats are NOT PERMITTED on the property. Tenants acknowledge that the property is for private holiday use and not for commercial purposes or the like.
All bookings are accepted by the Agent in good faith but are subject to change or cancellation by the landlord prior to the commencement of the booking. If cancellations occur because of actions by the landlord of the property, the Agent will make reasonable attempts to secure alternative accommodation. If no alternative can be secured, all monies paid by the tenant shall be refunded.
To confirm your booking, we require a deposit bond. We ask that you forward this within 2 working days of receipt of your booking letter to secure your booking. Unfortunately, the booking will be automatically cancelled if the Deposit Bond is not received within this time frame.
Receipt will be forwarded to you to confirm the booking. Please contact us if receipt is not received. Following your departure, the bond will be refunded once a satisfactory inspection of the property has been completed and if there have been no breaches of the terms and conditions. This will be processed within 10 working days of departure unless there is a dispute. The deposit bond will be refunded the same way it was paid, eg if paid via direct debit it will be refunded by direct debit, if paid via credit card it will be refunded by credit card.
The accommodation cost is payable 30 days prior to your arrival. Please note that if this payment is not received, the landlords are able to cancel the booking and implement the conditions outlined below under “Cancellations”. Please contact our office should you have any difficulties or queries regarding either the bond or accommodation payments.
