INFORMATION Are the cottages sold as Freehold or Leasehold?
The majority of the cottages on site are leasehold sold on a 125 year lease. Most of the leases are dated March 2006.

How long can I stay in my cottage?
This is a matter for each owner to decide. However the cottages are holiday homes and the lease does not allow for them to be used as the primary permanent residence.

Are all mains services connected?
Yes each cottage has its own meter for gas, electric and water.

Are pets allowed?
No we do not allow pets on site.

Can I let the cottage myself?
Only to friends and family as all commercial lets must be with Dorset Hideaways - more information below.

Who is responsible for the maintenance of the cottage?
The Owner of each cottage is responsible for the cost of cottage and communal maintenance. Owners will need to organise cottage maintenance services and The West Bay Club will organise communal maintenance - more information below.

It is the responsibility of Owners to organise holiday lettings and housekeeping and cottage maintenance for your property through the relevant service providers, details of which are included below.

NEW PROPERTY RELEASE:
LETTINGS WITH DORSET HIDEAWAYS
As soon as the contract completion has taken place on your property you are free to organise holiday rentals and to book your own personal stays.
As the new owner you have two options available. If you wish to rent your cottage out then you will need to sign an agreement with Dorset Hideaways, who will manage all of your property lettings for your guests and for you, as owners, OR, you may wish to keep your cottage out of the rental pool and use it solely for personal use, in which case you do not need to sign an agreement. The choice is yours. Please review your lease to ensure you are aware of the terms and conditions around personal usage.
If you decide that you would like to rent your cottage, please contact Dorset Hideaways direct on 01983 766112 to discuss further.

HOUSEKEEPING & COTTAGE MAINTENANCE
In addition to setting up your holiday lettings agreement with Dorset Hideaways you will also need to organise for housekeeping and cottage maintenance services for both your guests and Owner stays. You are free to organise these for yourself OR these services can be organised via a local company, Fina Casas, who are based on the West Bay site and offer a host of services that can be tailored to your needs.

DISCOUNTED FERRY BOOKINGS:
Owners can book ferry crossings with Dorset Hideaways.

Any amendments to bookings are also managed via Dorset Hideaways. From time to time the ferry services may offer special priced tickets that are not covered within the discounted rates. In these instances it may be beneficial to purchase direct with the ferry company.

SERVICE & MAINTENANCE PAYMENTS - COMMENCEMENT & FREQUENCY:
The communal aspects of the West Bay site are managed by the in-house team and these services are charged via an annual service & maintenance charge that is payable pro-rata from the date of property completion.
