I am about to go to bed, may I pick this up tomorrow morning?
I'll be about tomorrow as well,
Great, speak to to you then. Night!
In the contract does it say when she needs to get the deposit by?
There is no written contract year other than the texts and emails previously mentioned.
There was no date stipulated on previous cheques but we usually sent it a couple of months before arrival. Just to clarify: it's not a deposit but a security cheque in case further cleaning is required.
, Some of my questions haven't yet been answered. I'd appreciated your thoughts on the legality of a pre-condition in a contract that no complaints will be accepted on any subject. Am I right that it is simply unreasonable to place such a precondition? What are our legal rights in terms of pre-cashing of a security cheque which is explicitly to cover damage or loss during our stay?
1. That is not legal. The term is unreasonable. In that case attention should be drawn to it. If not, it can't be enforced.
2. If there has been damage you are entitled to cash a cheque to cover this. This is because if damage has been caused then it is breach of contract and/or an offence under the Criminal Damage Act
Does that clarify?
1. Can I just clarify that you're saying the blanket precondition of no complaints is unreasonable? 2. Yes, if there is damage we would expect the cheque to be cashed after our departure. The question is: What would be our rights should she try to cash a cheque before our arrival - a cheque which is explicitly to cover damage or loss during our stay?
2. Yes indeed. She should not cancel it before arrival ONLY if it is damage during the stay
Does that help?
Yes, that's great thanks.
