Non-payment of the balance of the hire charges by the due date will result in the owner treating the property as being available for re-booking and loss of deposit by the Hirer.

Upon receipt of written confirmation of the cancellation from the Hirer, we will endeavor to re-let the property and if successful will make a full refund to the hirer less any expenses incurred in re-letting. We recommend the Hirer takes out holiday insurance to cover any unexpected cancellations.

Owners reserve the right to terminate the occupancy of the property without notice or refund in the case of a breach of this condition. In the interests of other guests, we ask that undue or excessive noise be avoided, especially during late evening/night time.

It is a condition of the let that the Hirer leaves the property and its contents clean and tidy.

However, in the unlikely event of dissatisfaction with the property or any subsequent problem, the Hirer must immediately contact the owner so that the opportunity to rectify the problem is given. Under no circumstances will any refunds be considered if the property owner has not been given the opportunity to rectify any problems during the time of the Hirer's let.
