The Contract will be between the Client and Felmingham Hall. The Contract will be entered into when Felmingham Hall issues the confirmation form and will be
subject to all the booking conditions. Please read carefully.
A deposit of one third of the rental fee is payable if the booking is made more than 8 weeks before the start of the rental. The balance shall be payable 8 weeks
before the commencement of the rental. Non-payment of the balance of the rent on or before the due date shall be construed as a cancellation of the contract by
the Client. For bookings made less than 8 weeks before the commencement of the rental the total fee is payable. All payments shall be made to Felmingham Hall
at the address at the tope of the Booking Confirmation.
Any cancellation made by the Client for whatever reason shall be in writing and addressed to Felmingham Hall at the address at the top of the Booking
Confirmation. On receipt of notice of cancellation, we will seek to re-let the property for the period of booking. If Felmingham Hall succeeds in re-letting the
property for the whole period it shall refund all the monies paid less an administrative charge of £20 (plus VAT) per booking. If Felmingham Hall only
succeeds in re-letting the property for part of the period booked it shall refund an amount equal to the deposit and balance paid less rental for the period which is
not re-let and an administration charge of £20 (plus VAT). Should a cancellation be made before payment of the balance, and Felmingham Hall is unable to
re-let the whole period, the deposit must be forfeited. In such an instance, there would be no administration charge. If Felmingham Hall is unable to re-let the
property at all then all monies paid by the Client shall be forfeit to Felmingham Hall.
CHANGES OF DATE
Felmingham Hall may consider a request from a Client to change the dates of the booking after confirmation has been issued. Agreement will be given subject to
the following conditions being met: 1. the request is received more than 8 weeks away from the start of the booking 2. the Client pays an administrative fee of
£20 (plus VAT). VAT is included in the rental fee where applicable.

reserves the right to refuse entry to the entire party if these conditions are not observed.
Should there be any cause for complaint during the occupation of the property it must be notified promptly to Felmingham Hall and in the case of serious
problems confirmed in writing.
BREAKAGES OR DAMAGE

one week prior to the stay. This is fully refundable within seven days of the stay, once the Housekeepers have reported that no damage has been incurred. In the event of
