AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE PROPERTY OWNER AND THE CUSTOMER
These are the Property Owner’s Booking Terms, which apply to all Property bookings you make through ‘The Apartment Wirksworth’ brochure or Website. If these Booking Terms conflict with any other terms that apply to renting the Property, this agreement will take precedence.

(a) You must pay the Reservation Fee by on-line payment or cheque to Lester Simpson & Val Carman. You must then pay the balance of the Rental Price to us by on-line payment or cheque, no later than six weeks before the rental period begins. If we do not receive the balance of the Rental Price by that time, we will assume you have cancelled your booking and you will have to pay the cancellation charge specified in clause 11 below. We are entitled to re-let the Property to other customers without contacting you again.

5 NUMBER OF VISITORS
5.1 You agree that the number of people staying in the Property will not be more than the number stated in your booking.
You cannot bring pets on to the Property unless we have expressly agreed in advance. If you bring pets without our permission, we can stop everyone in your party entering the Property or ask you to leave. If we grant permission, the following conditions will apply:

As far as the law allows, we will not be liable for any loss or damage to you, any member of your party, any third party, and any baggage, car or contents, however it arises as a result of you renting the Property. Nothing in this Contract limits or excludes our liability for death or personal injury resulting from our negligence or for any damage or liability incurred as a result of any fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation by us.
If you feel you have a reason to complain about the Property, you must tell us immediately so we can take appropriate action. We cannot help you if we do not know about your problem. If you do not report your complaint immediately, but choose to raise it on your return home, you accept that it will make it harder to investigate your complaint after your rental has ended.
