This is the 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 rental period. If payment is not received by the due date, the Owner reserves the right to give notice in writing that the reservation is cancelled. The Client will remain liable to pay the balance of the rent unless the Owner is able to re-let the "Property". In this event clause 6 of these booking conditions will apply. Reservations made within eight weeks of the rental period require full payment at the time of the booking.

4 Any chargeable expenses arising during the rental period (eg telephone calls, electricity) should be settled locally with the owners before departure.

5 A security deposit of 100 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 cancellation, refunds of amounts paid will be repaid 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 must 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.

8 The maximum number to reside in the "Property" must not exeed the amount stated above unless the owner has given written permission.

9 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 our prices, the owner reserves 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. The Client also agrees not to act in any way which would cause disturbance to those resident in neighbouring properties.
