Terms & Conditions

1. George Goldsmith is the letting agent for the owners of the sporting estates and properties advertised in this brochure. Subject to acceptance of your booking, and payment as required below, you will enter into a contract with the owner of the estate or property concerned, the principal terms of which will be set out in a Tenancy Agreement.

2. Whilst every effort has been made to ensure that the particulars of the estates/properties contained in this brochure are accurate at the time of going to print, no representation is given as to their accuracy and they do not form part of any contract.

3. On acceptance of a booking, the let will be provisionally reserved in your name and an invoice for 50% of the rental will be sent out. Payment should be sent to George Goldsmith within 10 days, or the Payment due by date, on the invoice, to confirm the booking.

4. An invoice for the balance of the rental will be sent out 8 weeks prior to the commencement of the tenancy, and this must be settled within 10 days, or 6 weeks prior to the commencement of the tenancy.

5. If a booking is made less than 8 weeks prior to the commencement of the tenancy, the total rental will be due 6 weeks prior to the commencement of the tenancy.

6. Failure to comply with items 3, 4 or 5 above may result in cancellation of the booking and George Goldsmith reserves the right to re-let without further notice.

7. Payments may be made by any of the following methods:

7.1. By bank transfer to:

George Goldsmith

7.2. By cheque drawn on a UK bank.

7.3. By banker’s draft All payments must be made in Sterling. Bank charges arising from the transfer of funds will be payable by the tenant.

8. In the event of cancellation of a booking, if the tenancy can be re-let, you will be liable only to pay the difference between the rental achieved on re-letting (which may be at a reduced rate) and the rental you agreed to pay, plus an administration fee. If this difference is less than the sums you have already paid, an appropriate refund will be made. If the difference is greater than the sums you have already paid you will be invoiced for the shortfall. If the tenancy cannot be re-let, you will remain liable to pay the full amount of the agreed rental. We therefore recommend that you insure against cancellation.
