3 Briar Bank reserve the right to refuse or revoke bookings from parties which may in its opinion prove unsuitable as a result of their behaviour or otherwise.
4 The Hirer shall not pass his/her booking to another party. The person who signs the Booking Form certifies that they are authorised to agree to the terms and conditions on behalf of all the persons included on the booking form. The signatory must be a member of the party occupying the property and be aged 18 years or over.
5 The Hirer shall permit the Landlord or his agent the right of entry to the property at all reasonable times for the purpose of inspection or to carry out repairs deemed necessary to the property, or equipment, including gardening.

7 The property will be made available to you from 4pm on the day you arrive and you must depart by 10am on the day you leave.
1 A deposit of £100 is required, as well as the rental fee, to secure your booking and to cover any breakages and/or damage that may occur during your stay. This will be refunded once the property has been checked and cleaned and usually within one week of departure date, assuming everything is in order.
2 The remaining balance is due 8 weeks before the start of your holiday. For bookings made less than 8 weeks before arrival, full payment is required on booking.

If you cancel more than 8 weeks before your start date, the security/damages deposit will be forfeited if we are unable to re-let the property.
2 You are strongly advised to take out appropriate cancellation and travel insurance for your holiday.
