Terms and Conditions

1. The property known as Cagarot, Plaigne, France, hereinafter called ("the Property") is offered for holiday rental subject to confirmation by Mr R J Eustace hereinafter called ("the Owner") to the renter hereinafter called ("the Client").

2. To reserve the property, the Client should contact the owner and then arrange payment of the initial non-refundable deposit (25% of the total rent due, subject to a minimum of £200). Following receipt of the deposit, the Owner will send to the Client a confirmation invoice and statement. 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 two calendar months before the start of the rental period. If payment is not received by the due date, the Owner shall reserve the right to deem the reservation 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 two calendar months of the start of the rental period require full payment at the time of booking.

4. Any chargeable expenses arising during the rental period will be payable from the security payment.

5. A security deposit of £300 for the rental period is required in case of, for example, damage to the property or its contents and for the consumption of electricity or fire wood when so agreed. 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, the Owner will retain the 25% deposit or £200 which ever is the greater. However, the Owner shall endeavour to re-let the property. If the Owner is able to re-let the property, any expenses or losses incurred in so doing will be deducted from any refundable amount subject to a minimum administration fee of £50. 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 of the booking and finish at 10.00am on the last day of the booking. 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 number to reside in the property must not exceed the number in the booking invoice and statement.

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 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 people resident in neighbouring properties.

10. The Client shall report to the Owner's agent without delay any defects in the property or breakdown in the equipment, plant, machinery or appliances in the property or garden and arrangements for repair and / or replacement will be made as soon as possible.

11. The Owner shall not be liable to the Client:

12. The client agrees to comply with legislation in respect of Swimming Pool Safety and in particular the operation of devices installed in and or on the pool conforming to regulation NF P 90 - 307 (in the case of Aquasensors) and or out of season regulation NF P 90 - 308 (in the case of the winter-cover), and to completely indemnify the Owner for any fines that may be levied against the Owner for a failure of the Client to operate the devices in accordance with a Manual provided whilst the Client is renting the house.

13. Under no circumstances shall the Owner's liability to the Client exceed the amount paid to the Owner for the rental period. This contract shall be governed by English law in every particular, including formation and interpretation and shall be deemed to have been made in England. Any proceedings arising out of or in connection with this contract may be brought in any court of competent jurisdiction in England.
