BOOKING CONDITIONS:

1. The property known as EMBLA (the Property) is offered for holiday rental subject to confirmation by Mr. and Mrs. Fletcher (the Letters) to the renter (the Client).

2. To reserve the Property, the Client should complete the Booking Form and return it to the owners by email. All payments are as per Holiday Lettings policy.

Following receipt of the Booking Form and both deposits, the Letters will send a confirmation acknowledgement. This is the formal acceptance of the booking. The person completing this Booking Form warrants that he/she has the authority of all members of his/her party to sign on their behalf and that he/she and the others agree to be bound by these conditions.

3. The balance of the rental (see Clause 4) is payable not less than eight weeks before the start of the rental period. If payment is not received by the due date, the Letter 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. A security deposit of £150.00 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 Letter. The Letter will account to the Client for the security deposit and refund the balance due within two weeks after the end of the rental period.

5. Subject to Clauses 2 and 3 above, in the event of a non-insurable cancellation, refunds of amounts paid will be made if the Letter 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 Letter's insurance.

6. The rental period shall commence at 4.00 pm on the first day and finish at 10.00 am on the last day. The Letter shall not be obliged to offer accommodation before the time stated and the Client shall not be entitled to remain in occupation after the time stated.

7. The maximum number to reside in the Property must not exceed 4, using the 2 double bedrooms. Other rooms must not be used for sleeping accommodation. We do not accept babies nor children under the age of 8 years. However, the number must not exceed that shown on the booking form. Entry will be denied if any of the above conditions are breached at any time.

8. Guests are responsible for the security of the property during their rental. All doors, windows etc. must be locked and secured when leaving the property during the holiday.

9. The Client is responsible for leaving the property, furniture and effects clean, in good order and condition. Cleaning is not included in the price and the client is expected to leave the accommodation in the manner in which it was found. Should additional cleaning be required to make the accommodation ready for a new client, cleaning will be charged at £35.00 an hour which will be deducted from the security deposit. The Client agrees to be considerate and leave the property in a clean and tidy condition. The Client agrees not to act in a way that causes disturbances to the neighbours. The Client shall inform the Letter's of any damage or items missing to the Letter's or his agent.

10. The Client and party acquire no rights whatsoever over the Property excepting occupation as a holiday let for the period booked. The Client shall not sub-let the Property.

11. The Client shall report to the Letter (or Letter's Representative) without delay any defects in the Property or breakdown in the equipment. Such as plant, machinery or appliances in the Property, and arrangements for repair and/or replacement will be made by the Letter or his Representative as soon as possible. We cannot accept any complaints after the Client has returned home where we have not been given the opportunity to put the matter right during their stay.

12. The Letter 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.

- 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 Letter or his authorized Agents.

- 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. In such event the Letter shall, within seven days of the notification to the Client, refund to the Client all sums previously paid in respect of the rental period.

13. Under no circumstances shall the Letter's liability to the Client exceed the amount paid to the Letter for the rental period.

14. The use of accommodation and amenities where offered 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.

15. No responsibility can be accepted for any loss or damage to any motor vehicle or its contents. Cycles are left in the cycle store entirely at guests risk and MUST NOT be brought into the apartment.

16. The bringing of pets in or onto the Property is strictly forbidden. No camping is permitted on the Property grounds. Smoking is not permitted in the Property. Entry will be denied if guests arrive with an animal.

17. We would draw to your attention that we have provided a lidded bin in the bathroom and sanitary products should be put into this bin and then disposed of by yourselves. Any blockage caused by sanitary products, etc. will result in a specialist company being called and the cost of which will be borne by the renter.

18. Due to the fire risks caused by deep fat fryers, we have not included a deep fat fryer within the apartment. Please do not cook using any form of deep fat frying as there is a high risk of fire.

19. The general waste bin and recycling waste bin for the apartment are stored in the waste binstore. (Through the entrance into the car park and the bin store is the first door on the left, the key is on your set of keys). The bins are marked '42'

Please put all general waste into the grey general bin and recycling such as bottle, cardboard, plastic bottles into the blue recycling bin. Newspapers should be placed into the black box within this bin. Collection day is every Friday for general waste and every other week for recycling waste. It would be appreciated if you would put out the general waste on Thursday evening during your stay, and if asked by our hostess on your arrival, the recycling bin as well.

20. We endeavour to keep our prices competitive and because of this heating is limited to 7am to 9am and 6pm to 10pm. Should guests require heating beyond these times then an additional charge will be made. (The central heating is turned off in June, July and August).

21. The Letter's reserve the right to enter the property during the let should it become apparent that there is a problem such as fire, flood or other occurrences that could represent a threat to the owners property and or services.

22. In the event of the renter losing the keys, the renter will bear full responsibility for paying the costs of replacement, including the costs of changing the locks if this is deemed necessary.

23. This Contract shall be governed by English law in every particular including formation and interpretation and shall be deemed to have been compiled in England. Any proceedings arising out of or in connection with this Contract may be brought in any court of competent jurisdiction in England.
