SUITABILITY:

The Agent strongly advises that all Locations are visited by a representative of the Client prior the commencement of the shoot taking place to establish first hand the suitability and availability of the Location. The Agent nor Location Owner can be held liable for any loss, damage or inconvenience caused by the unsuitability of the Location.

It is the responsibility of the Client to determine whether the Location requires any further permissions (and if so, that these are confirmed proceeding the shoot taking place), be it in relation to areas adjacent to the Location, from the local authority or other third parties, in order to facilitate the production.

The Agent greatly recommends that a qualified Location Manager be hired by the Client to overlook the production, to undertake a recce, to organise access, parking, permissions and responsible care of the Property. Responsibility for the obtaining of permissions, notification of relevant authorities, and the notification of neighbours, rests entirely with the Client. The Agent will not be liable for any loss or damage suffered by the Client or the Owner as a result of the Hire, or the cancellation of the Hire.

FEES:

There isn't a charge for using the Website, searching the location library or arranging  location recce(s). The Location Hire Fee will be discussed and agreed upon to suit both parties after taking all factors into consideration. If a Location is booked and confirmed, a small Administration Fee of £100 will be charged to cover administration costs (administration fee(s) are non-refundable).

Invoice(s) are to be paid in advance of the production. Failure to pay the fees in advance of the production may result in access to the Location being prohibited.

Location Locker may ask for a Security Deposit to cover against any damage that may occur from the Clients usage. This is usually between £100 to £1000 or more depending upon the type of Location and type of modifications the Client wishes to make. It is at the discretion of Location Locker as to whether this is necessary. Security Deposits will be issued and payable in conjunction with the invoice. The deposit will be held by the Agent.

The overtime hourly rate will be stated within the Location Hire Agreement. Overtime payments will initially be deducted from the Security Deposit., a separate invoice will be sent to the Client where the Security Deposit does not cover the amounted overtime fees.

Thomas Potter trading as Location Locker is not registered for Value Added Tax; Value Added Tax will not be charged.

PAYMENT:

Any Administration Fees, Location Hire Fees and if necessary, Security Deposits are payable to the Agent strictly in advance of the shoot in the form of Direct Bank Transfer. Payment will only be deemed to have been received by the Agent when it has cleared into the Agent's bank account. Failure to pay the fees in full in advance of the shoot may result in access to the Location being prohibited.

LOCATION HIRE AGREEMENT:

Once a Location has been booked, the Agent will draw up a Location Hire Agreement which will set out, amongst other things, the rights and obligations surrounding the use of the location, the images taken and the rights of the Agent, the Owner and the Client.

Any person signing the Location Hire Agreement must be validly authorised to do so and anyone knowingly misrepresenting themselves to be so authorised will be liable for any damage or loss suffered by the Agent and/or the Owner. Once the Location Hire Agreement has been signed by the parties to the Agreement, this will confirm the booking and the Client shall be liable for 100% of the fees outlined. Until the Agreement is signed the client risks losing the Location.

PUBLIC LIABILITY INSURANCE:

To hire any of the Locations on Location Locker’s database you must provide proof of valid Public Liability Insurance to a minimum of £5,000,000 although some locations may require a minimum of £10,000,000. The Public Liability Insurance cover must be in the same name as the Client on the Location Hire Agreement.

Failure to provide proof of valid Public Liability Insurance and/or failure to sign and deliver the Location Hire Agreement in advance of the shoot will result in access to the Location being prohibited.

BOOKING A LOCATION:

Availability and suitability of any given Location appearing on Location Locker's library can only be confirmed upon entering in to the Location Hire Agreement. You should not try to speak directly with the Owner until you are contracted to be on the Location and all negotiations have been concluded. A Client being in contact with the Location Owner directly is considered breaking terms of service; This may result in the booking being cancelled and the Client being charged the Administration Fee.

The Client acknowledges that they will make aware [the Owner] of the nature of the fictitious and/or real events being portrayed at the Location, this should either be passed through the Agent or discussed in person whilst on a location recce.

If, because of illness of actors, director or other essential artists and crew, weather conditions, defective film or equipment or any other occurrence beyond the Client’s control, the Client is unable to start work on the dates designated in the specific terms and conditions, or work in progress is interrupted during the Client’s use of the Location for any of the reasons set out in this paragraph, then the Client shall have the right to use the Location at a later date to be mutually agreed and for this later period to be treated as the Shooting Period (or, where applicable, the remainder of the Shooting Period) without additional payment to the Owner.

POST SHOOT:

 

The Owner has 5 business days following the last day on site to declare to the Agent any damage that may have occurred or cleaning that is needed. In which event, the Client may want to inspect and assess the complaint, if they acknowledge responsibility, they: 

  • shall be given the opportunity to either correct the damage or make restitution in a timely manner; 

  • pay quotes for repairs by Owners own contractor; 

  • or the Agent negotiates a fee to be paid by the Client to the Owner to cover the damages/cleaning. 

The Client is aware that some damage claims may be subject to an insurance company investigation that may take some time to complete. The Agent will not be able to assist from this point and will simply pass over Client details to the Owner.

The Owner agrees that if filming, photographing or recording is not completed during the Shooting Period, the Client may be entitled to return to the Location to continue filming or to reshoot footage for a mutually agreed time (Additional Shooting Period) for an additional fee. The terms of this agreement shall apply to the Additional Shooting Period. 

CANCELLATIONS:

 

Confirmed bookings, which are cancelled by the Client no later than 48 hours before the commencement of the Shooting Period will be charged 50% of the Location Hire Fee & the entire Administration Fee (less the Security Deposit). Confirmed bookings, which are cancelled by the Client less than 48 hours before the commencement of the Shooting Period will be charged 100% of the Location Hire Fee & the entire Administration Fee (less the Security Deposit).

 

The Client agrees and acknowledges that if the Owner cancels the production for any reason, the Client shall be entitled to a full refund excluding the Administration Fee. This is non-negotiable, the Agent will not hold any responsibility for cancellation on the owner's behalf. Location Locker suggests that the Client always has a backup Location in place for this outcome.

Confirmed location photo shoots, which are cancelled by the Owner for any reason including weather, will be charged 100% of the Security Deposit.

The following actions may result in the termination of a shoot by the Agent:

 

(i) non-payment of the location library fees, location hire fees and/or (if applicable) the damage deposit prior to the commencement of the shoot (ii) failure to provide proof of valid Public Liability Insurance and/or failure to sign and deliver the Location Hire Agreement prior to the commencement of the shoot (ii) the provision of inaccurate, incomplete or misleading information by the Client in connection with the Location Hire Agreement; or (iii) any breach of these terms and conditions.
