Our email address is: info@kingsdownrectory.co.uk

 

  • If you make a hire agreement with us you agree to be legally bound by the contract.

  • When making a hire agreement you also agree to be legally bound by:

    • these terms and conditions and any documents referred to in them; and

    • extra terms which may add to, or replace some of, these terms and conditions. This may happen

      for legal or regulatory reasons. We will contact you to let you know if we intend to do this by

      giving you one month’s notice.

  • The hire charge (less deposit but together with, when applicable, V.A.T at the prevailing rate), as

    set out in the Hire Agreement Summary Form, must be paid in full no less than 8 months prior to

    the Period of Hire

  • All these documents form part of the Hire Agreement as set out in these conditions.

  • By law, the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations

    2013 say that we must give you certain key information before a legally binding contract between you and us is made (see the summary points below). We will give you this information in a clear and understandable way. Typically, we will give you this information on paper before you make a hire agreement with us. Some of this information is also set out in these terms and conditions.

  • Any quotation given by KR during your viewing of the venue or otherwise before you make a booking for the services is not a binding offer by KR to supply such services.

  • All bookings will be treated as provisional and the Hirer shall have no rights pursuant to this Agreement until;
    • the signed Hire Agreement Summary Form is received by KR
    • the appropriate deposit has been paid

    • the necessary checks have been carried out by KR

  • Upon receipt of your signed hire agreement form, KR will acknowledge it by email or telephone.

    This acknowledgement does not, however, mean that your booking has been accepted until the

    appropriate deposit and checks have been accepted by KR.

  • KR may contact you to say that we do not accept your hire agreement. If we do this, we will try to

    tell you promptly why we do not accept your agreement. This is typically for the following reasons:

    • we cannot carry out the services (this may be because, for example, we have a shortage of staff

      or the venue is already booked on the date you request)

    • we cannot authorise your payment

    • you are not allowed to buy the services from us

    • we are not allowed to sell the services to you

    • there has been a mistake on the pricing or description of the services

  • We will only accept your hire agreement when we email you to confirm this and once we receive your deposit.
    • At this point:

    • a legally binding contract will be in place between you and us,
    • we will block out the date of your event from sale to the general public; and
    • we will start to carry out the services in the way you and we have agreed in writing

  • The end of the Event must be scheduled to allow sufficient time for the Hirer to clear the Venue of all persons, equipment or other objects brought in by the Hirer within the agreed Period of Hire.

  • The Hire Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties relating to the subject matter of the agreement. The Hire Agreement supersedes all prior negotiations, representations and undertakings, whether written or oral, except that this Hire Agreement shall not exclude liability in respect of any fraudulent misrepresentation.

  • In the case of any discrepancy within the Hire Agreement documents these Conditions shall prevail.

  • These conditions shall be governed by English law and any dispute shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales.

  • The Hire Agreement does not constitute the grant of a tenancy and does not confer on the Hirer any right to exclude us or those acting on behalf of us from the Venue or Venue grounds and estate

  • The Hirer is required to remove all waste from the site during and following the period of hire. Third party suppliers should be encouraged to take away their own waste however if any is left after the hire period the Hirer will be liable for any additional clean up fees.

  • KR must be kept informed at all times of the Hirer’s choice of third party suppliers requiring access to the venue.

  • Subject to availability KR reserves the right to make available the Ceremony Room for booking by other parties before or after an event day and KR reserves the right to make such bookings without prior notification to you.

  • It is the Hirer’s responsibility to provide sufficient numbers of toilets / toilet trailers for guest and disabled use. These are to be erected in an appropriate place in the grounds of the venue and be easily accessed e.g behind a tent, bush or wall. As a guide 4 standard portable toilets (2 female & 2 male) are required for 120 guests. All waste and rubbish associated with these facilities must be removed from the site no later than the hire period e.g same day the marquee is taken away.

  • For receptions and receptions that include ceremonies third party suppliers are permitted access to the venue from 11:00am 3 days before the event date for the purposes of setting up. For example access is permitted from 11.00am on a Wednesday for a wedding reception on a Saturday. For ceremonies only third party suppliers are permitted access from 10am on the day of the ceremony for the purposes of setting up. You shall be responsible for ensuring the co-ordination and good conduct of those suppliers during the period of hire. If suppliers require access before these times, this is to be by separate arrangement. If using a marquee, permitted access is provided 3 days before the event date but the exact date and time must be agreed by all parties (venue, marquee company and couple). We will not supervise contractors, third party suppliers or marquee builds on your behalf at any point or be responsible for any security of people, belongings, or property directly or indirectly connected with the event.
