General: The laws of England and Wales govern these terms and conditions: 

The Accommodations & Landlords: The accommodations that we reserve or arrange viewings for is not owned by GooneyShop Ltd. We are not responsible for any licences required or for the condition of the property. GooneyShop Ltd uses the information given to us by the property owners, we then pass this information on to our clients before they book a viewing or reserve the accommodation. We are not liable for any wrong information given to us nor are we liable for any losses incurred due to this. If our client has a complaint regarding the accommodation or any fault after moving in, it is the landlord's duty to deal and correct the problem, so it is them that you need to contact. If a client requests for a refund about a payment made to the landlord or any other agent, it is the landlord that should be dealing with the issue and not us. 

Complaints Made at the Property, For Client’s who moved in: If you have any complaints regarding the room or property once entered you must complain directly to the landlord. 

Someone Acting on Your Behalf: The only time we can discuss our client’s issues with a third party is if our client writes us a letter stating the name and address of the person or agent that will be acting on your behalf. Once we receive a letter from you giving us the authority to discuss your matter with a third party, then we will consider doing this. Please see our contact page for the details in how to get in touch with us. 

Fee for Landlords:

1. For room let:  

We charge landlords and Agents a fee which is equivalent to one and a half weeks rent.

The fee is paid once the room gets reserved.

2. For whole property let:

 We charge landlords a fee which is between the equivalent to two and four weeks rent depending on the location.

The fee is paid once the room gets reserved.

Fees for clients when reserving a room or property: Single person fee is between £150 and £200 depending on the location. If it's a couple reserving, then the fee is between £200 and £300 depending on the location. The correct fee amount is stated in the advertisements. 

Late Payment Charges: This applies to Landlords and viewing clients. If you do not pay your GooneyShop Ltd fee within 12 hours of the accommodation being reserved, you will get a late payment charge of £50. If you continue to avoid making a payment you will get a further late payment charge of £100. GooneyShop Ltd takes these kinds of offences very serious and we will not stop in trying to recover our money. We will take all steps necessary, like for example: Debt Collection Agencies will be appointed and when that happens their fees will be added to your bill. We will also prepare ourselves to take you to court if necessary. 

Reserving an accommodation without viewing: When you reserve an accommodation without viewing prior to arriving and the accommodation is not ready when you arrive for whatever reason, then we will offer you an alternative accommodation for the same rent or close to the rent of your first booking.
