Is there anything else to consider once I’ve secured a holiday home booking?

When paying the rent or deposit to secure the holiday home, ensure that you receive a detailed receipt for the amount paid showing what the payment is for. Ask the agent or the landlord how and when your security deposit will be refunded to you. 

Before moving into the holiday home, you should conduct an inspection of the property. In some cases the inspection will be carried out in the presence of the owner or agent. During the inspection you should note down any existing damage, the items contained within the property and note any missing or faulty appliances. 

It's important to write your comments down and highlight the matter with the owner or agent prior to the commencement of your tenancy in order to protect your interests. This will help to avoid any disputes when you complete your stay. 

You will be responsible for any damage to the property or its equipment, fixtures and fittings if it is caused through your negligence. You are not responsible for fair wear and tear of the items.
