Renter Signature: _____________________________ Date[MK22] : ______________________
[MK1]It is prudent to have the reservation date shown for avoidance of doubt as it determines when the deposit is payable.
[MK2]It is prudent to add that the Parties’ successors and assigns shall also be bound to this agreement.
[MK3]Use similar words throughout.
[MK4]The word “in its original condition is vague and subject to misinterpretation, it can easily be construed to mean the condition the costume was in when it was bought/ made by you.
[MK5]It is contradictory to mandate that the costume must be returned while clean and at the same time prohibit the Renter from cleaning the costume.
[MK6]Since you will be handling the cleaning, it is safe to provide for indemnity should you discover breach after the Agreed Return Date & Time date such as permanent stains.
[MK7]It is prudent to use the same words to refer to the same item throughout the document for uniformity and clarity.
[MK8]It is prudent to use similar words throughout the document as expressed above.
[MK9]As earlier stated, similar words are preferable.
[MK10] Use similar words.
[MK11]The word “original” implies presence of another rental amount which is misleading since there is only one rental amount and the rest are late fees and penalties.
[MK12]The costume is the only rental ,the use of the word “renatl items (s) implies there may be more than the costume that is being rented out which is misleading.
[MK13]This has already been covered under the first point.
[MK14]This is vague since sweat is also a body fluid which may be reasonably expected on the costume before Dream Doll Parties cleans it especially since you do not allow the Renter to clean it themselves.
[MK15]This has already been covered under the first point.
[MK16] [MK16]This has already been covered under the fifth point.
[MK17]It is not necessary to have the words “that is hired” all reference to the costume in the Renter’s possession refers to those that have already been hired.
[MK18]It is prudent to state that the costume has been inspected and found to be in good condition especially by the Renter on the Pick Up Date & Time/ Ship Date.
[MK20]It is prudent to state the dispute resolution method for clarity.
[MK21]It is prudent to state the applicable law, preferably where your business is registered for clarity.
[MK22]It is bette to have the signature at the end of the agreement to show that the Renter has read through it then signed.
