Terms of Let and Cancellation Policy
The Loft @ The Granary – 29 The Granary, 16 York Street, Ayr KA8 8DQ
For Information – Once a booking has been confirmed, a Contract has been entered into. The person whose name appears on the Booking Form agrees to take full responsibility for ensuring that all the following Conditions of Let are adhered to by all members of the party.
By completing the booking procedure you are agreeing:
- To limit the number of people occupying any one property to that stated in the brochure or website, unless by prior consent with the owner.
- To pay a deposit of 50% on booking, with the balance payable 42 days before the start of the holiday. If a booking is made less than 6 weeks before the start of the holiday the full rent is payable at the time of booking. Failure to pay any rental charges will result in the owner treating the property as available for re-letting.
- To accept that a completed booking agreed by both parties is a binding contract and that any subsequent amendments must be agreed by both parties in writing.
- To notify any cancellation in writing and pay any monies due. If the accommodation is re-let at the full rate, a full refund, less a discretionary administration fee, will be made. If re-let at a lesser rate a partial refund will be made pro rata. If not re-let then no refund will be made. To safeguard against cancellation charges or other unforeseen eventualities cancellation insurance should be considered.
- To accept that should the property, subsequent to booking, become unavailable through any cause, the owner’s liability is limited to the repayment of any rent already paid.

- To use the property solely as self-catering accommodation and to accept the owner’s right to refuse to hand over the property to any person deemed unsuitable to take charge. Causing a nuisance or disturbance to neighbours or unreasonable behaviour by any member of the party may result in the owners asking guests to leave.
