I Lecci - Terms & Conditions 

  1. The property known as I Lecci (“the Property”) is offered for holiday rental, subject to confirmation by Martin & Tina Leggett (“the Owners”) to the renter (“the Client”).
  2. To reserve the Property, the Client should complete and sign the booking form and return it together with payment of the initial non-refundable deposit (30% of the total rent due). Following receipt of the booking form and deposit, the Owners will send a confirmation, receipt and invoice for the balance. This is the formal acceptance of the booking.
  3. The balance of the rent, together with the security deposit (see clause 4) is payable not less than eight (8) weeks prior to the start of the rental period. If payment is not received by the due date, the Owners reserve the right to give notice in writing that the reservation is cancelled. The Client will remain liable to pay the balance of the rent unless the Owners are able to re-let the Property. In this event, clause 7 of these booking conditions will apply. Reservations made with eight (8) weeks of the start of the rental period require full payment at the time of booking.
  4. A security deposit of UK £300.00, €350.00, USD $400.00 or equivalent is required in case of damage to the Property or to its contents. 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 14 days after the end of the rental period.
  5. Any additional chargeable expenses arising from breakages or damage during the rental period will be deducted from the security deposit after departure.
  6. A charge of UK £175.00, €200.00 or USD $230.00 or equivalent will be made in advance for cleaning and laundry.
  7. In the event of a cancellation, refunds of amounts paid will be made if the Owner is able to re-let the Property, and any expenses or losses incurred in so doing will be deducted from the refundable amount. 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.
  8. The rental period shall commence at 4pm on the first day and finish at 10am on the last day. 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, unless agreed otherwise.

  10. 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. The Owners reserve the right to make an additional retention from the security deposit to cover exceptional cleaning costs if the Client leaves the Property in an unacceptable condition.
  11. 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 surroundings, and arrangements for repair and / replacement will be made as soon as possible.
