The Guardhog insurance cover includes the following:

- Buildings: the amount insured is up to £1,000,000, with an excess charge of £250 and a minimum claim requirement of £1,000. Any property that we on-board is required to have existing buildings insurance in place.  This insurance covers damage to fixtures within the unit such as baths, sinks, walls, etc.

Booking Platform FeeVariable by platform (from 3.6%)This is the fee charged by the Listing Sites (booking platforms) in order to advertise your Property on the short-term rental market. These Listing Sites include but are not limited to Booking.com, Expedia, HomeAway and Airbnb.
Maintenance Handling FeesThe greater of either 20% of the total cost of the job, or a minimum fee of £20 (inclusive of VAT)The handling fees will be charged on top of the cost of any maintenance, repairs or other services managed by the Property Manager.

By appointing us, you permit us to authorise any works up to a maximum value of £250 without your prior consent in order to maintain an acceptable hospitality experience for the Guest and avoid any refunds or penalties as a result of negatively impacting guest stays. Any amounts over and above £250 will be agreed with you in advance.

You also permit us to authorise emergency maintenance works without your prior consent where, at our sole discretion, it is deemed necessary either to protect the Property from further damage (e.g. in the case of a leak), or when the impact will mean that the Guest cannot reasonably stay at the Property (e.g. no hot water, broken lock on an outside door, or clothes are stuck in washing machine and they need to leave).

If the internet goes down at the Property and cannot be restarted remotely, we will put into place temporary internet without your prior approval and will charge such costs to you. This is in order to protect the rental income and avoid Guest claims for refunds on this basis.

Light bulbs will be bought and installed as needed without your prior approval, and will be charged without a handling or installation fee if the light bulb can be reasonably accessed. If inaccessible then speciality installation may be needed which may incur a charge.
Housekeeping Fee Housekeeping fees are charged directly to the Guest when staying at the Property, and will vary by bedroom size, location and time. If you have specific housekeeping requests, please contact us for further information on whether these requests can be met and whether any relevant charges apply.
Other Fees We reserve the right to charge additional delivery charges in instances where you require us to perform additional deliveries (further to those deliveries already agreed between us), or to deliver to additional or alternative delivery addresses and in the instance of special public holidays and circumstances that raise our delivery costs for reasons beyond our control.

Giving access to the Property outside of our normal hosting activities (e.g. for a Client organised decorator) is charged at £25. If you require waiting at the Property, for example, waiting for an internet engineer slot, we can do this for £25 per hour.

In the unlikely event, that any of our linen or items that we own at the Property are stolen, lost or damaged through obvious negligence, charges may apply. This fee will be reclaimed from the Guest or Client as appropriate to whoever caused the loss or damage.
Break Fee£250 (including VAT)You may, at our sole discretion, be required to pay a fee in the amount of £250 for early termination of this Contract to take account of the Services that have been provided up to the effective date of termination.
