Indemnity and Damages 

Our indemnity and damages agreement will need to be completed by all guests. We dont always ask for a damage deposit and rely on our guests honesty to sort out breakages. 


In consideration of foregoing, and of the mutual covenants contained herein, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties to this Agreement hereby agree as follows:

1.1 The Tenant agrees to indemnify and save the Host, harmless from and against any and all claims, liability, loss, expenses, suits, damages, judgments, demands, and costs (including reasonable legal fees and expenses) arising out of (i) the acts or omissions of Tenant, and  his/her Family and visitors in connection with “Paulshof Guesthouse” property and ; or (ii) any accident, injury or death to persons, or loss of or damage to property, or fines and penalties which may result, in whole or in part, by reason of  Paulshof Guesthouse House rules except to the extent that such damage is due solely and directly to the negligence of the Host.

1.2 The Tenant shall defend and settle at its sole expense all suits or proceedings arising out of the foregoing.

1.3 The obligations of the Tenant under this Indemnity Agreement shall last in perpetuity.

1.4 Any failure or delay by either Party to exercise any right, power or privilege hereunder or to insist upon observance or performance by the other of the provisions of this License Agreement shall not operate or be construed as a waiver thereof.
