Luke and Saffron K are referred to as ‘the Owners’. Clients applying to hire Villa Aeneas are referred to as ‘the Applicants’ until such time as they take up residence when they are referred to as ‘the Tenants’. Villa Aeneas is referred to as ‘the Property’. ‘Rent’ means the weekly payment to be paid for renting Villa Aeneas.
Applicants are advised to check availability on the web site.The owners will send the applicants a booking and terms and conditions for completion and signing. The booking form and terms and conditions should be retuned with either the deposit or the full rent if the booking is made less than 6 weeks from the date of the holiday. Bookings will only be deemed to be accepted when made in writing on the owners booking form and signed by one of the applicants and accompanied by a cheque for the deposit or full rent as applicable. Telephone reservations are not regarded as bookings until the above booking conditions have been complied with.
A non returnable deposit of £200 per week booked is payable on booking. If a booking is made 6 weeks or less before arrival the full rent is due at the time of the booking.
A final invoice will normally be sent to the applicants 8 weeks before the date of their holiday. Payment must be made in full 6 weeks prior to arrival date. Non payment by that date will be treated as a cancellation and the owners may relet the property without reference to the applicants who remain liable for the full amount although credit will be given for any rents received as a result of reletting, less the owners expenses.The same will apply to a cancellation within 6 weeks of arrival date.
A security deposit of £200 is charged at the time the balance of the rent is paid, to cover damage and breakages which will be refundable within 14 days of the vacation of the property as long as no damage has been incurred. If there has been damage or breakages the amount for repair will be deducted from the security deposit and if the damage be more than the security deposit the tenants will be liable.
