The Agreement shall be between Broadland Properties Limited incorporated under the Companies Act and having its Registered Office at 137 Scalby Road, Scarborough, YO12 6TB (hereinafter called the Agent) acting as agent for the owner of the holiday cottage to which this letting relates (hereinafter called the Owner) and the party named in the booking form who is responsible to pay the hire charge in full (hereinafter called the holidaymaker) on the following Terms and Conditions.

The holidaymaker warrants that the holiday cottage named in the booking form (“the holiday cottage”) is to be used only for the purposes of a holiday as provided in the Housing Act 1988.

The holidaymaker undertakes to maintain and leave the holiday cottage and its furnishings and fittings in the same condition as at the date of the commencement of this holiday let and none of the furnishings and fittings shall be removed from the holiday cottage at any time and to reimburse the Owner for any damage, breakage or shortage.

The holidaymaker shall leave the holiday cottage in a clean and tidy condition at the end of the holiday let (and failing this, the holiday cottage will be cleaned by or on behalf of the Owner and a charge made to the holidaymaker for the cost of such cleaning).

At the end of the period specified in the booking form, the holidaymaker undertakes to vacate the holiday cottage without demand.

The holidaymaker shall ensure that the holiday cottage is securely locked when not occupied during the period of the holiday let.

The holidaymaker shall not sublet the holiday cottage or any part thereof. 

The number of persons occupying the said holiday cottage shall not exceed the numbers of the party stated on the booking form.

The holidaymaker undertakes to prevent any member of his party from causing a nuisance or disturbance to other residents or occupiers in the neighbourhood. In the event of a problem arising, the Owner and/or its Agent has the right to require the holidaymaker and his party to leave immediately without reimbursement of any part of the hire charge.

The holidaymaker will indemnify the Owner and the Agent against any claim which may arise as a result of (a) this holiday letting and/or (b) the holidaymaker’s occupation and uses of the said cottage and/or (c) the holidaymaker’s breach of the terms hereof.

The holidaymaker may bring up to two well-behaved dogs to North Cottage, West Cottage, Granary Cottage, Manor House Farm & Cottage, The Smithy, Roebuck Cottage, The Boathouse and Otter Lodge, provided the Owner and/or the Agent is advised of this when the booking is made. The holidaymaker shall not leave the dog/s alone in the cottage and shall not permit the dog/s in the bedrooms of, or on the furniture in the cottage. Otherwise, no pets of any description are allowed in any cottage.

Cancellation: The holidaymaker is liable for the total hire charge unless written notice of the intention to cancel the booking is received at least eight weeks prior to the commencement of the holiday. The deposit paid to confirm the booking and other monies paid, will only be refunded if the Owner is able to re-let the holiday cottage for the period of the holiday let. In the event of re-letting the Owner will retain the sum of £100 plus VAT to cover administrative costs and (subject to deduction of that sum) refund to the holidaymaker the balance of monies received from the holidaymaker or the sum received from re-letting whichever sum shall be the lower. Every effort will be made to re-let a cancelled booking, but the holidaymaker is advised to take out holiday insurance to cover that eventuality.

Any complaint or problem relating to the Property should immediately be notified to the Owner or any caretaker or key holder identified in the booking acceptance so that an opportunity is given to rectify the problem or deal with the complaint. No refund will be considered if the Owner has not been given the opportunity to rectify any problem during the booking.

Where more than one person is named on the booking form the expression ‘the holidaymaker’ shall include all such persons whose obligations shall be joint and several and (where applicable) words importing the male gender shall include the female and words importing the singular shall include the plural.
