There are 4 requirements that must be met in order to secure your booking:

  1. Signature on Rental Contract.
  2. Full payment. Due upon receipt of Rental Contract.
  3. Damage deposit cheque in the amount of $500 made out to New Brighton Residents Association dated for the day of your rental. Pending the rental is clear of contract violations, this cheque will be returned in full between 7-10 business days after completion of the rental.
  4. Insurance information. The New Brighton Resident Association’s insurance policy does not cover private rentals; therefore, we do require liability insurance information from the renter for all rentals.
