Are you contacting Newton Mearns accident claim solicitors after being hurt in a holiday rental property?
When people go on holiday, they often enjoy staying in a hotel or B&B. All inclusive deals can mean that staying in a hotel is a cheaper and easier way to enjoy your holiday. However, some people find that self-catering accommodation suits their needs. If you prefer to prepare your meals yourself, or if you simply require more space whilst you’re away, you may choose to rent a chalet, villa or holiday home whilst you’re away.
Although anyone could technically rent their home or property out to holidaymakers, they are required to ensure that the property is safe and that it meets the relevant health and safety standards. For example, they may need to ensure that the property is fitted with smoke alarms or that it has fire extinguishers in the property.
Whilst booking through an agent can sometimes help to ensure that you’re booking a safe property, this isn’t always the case so you’ll want to do your own research before relying on the recommendations of anyone else.
If you arrive at a holiday property and find that it isn’t as advertised, you may want to contact the owners or the agent straightaway. If you believe that the property is unsafe, or if you’re concerned for you safety, you may want to find somewhere else to stay, even if this costs you more in the short term.
