If you pay a deposit to rent a pitch on a small privately owned caravan site, i.e. on a farm and then discovered that you were unable to make the nights booked, can you claim all of your deposit back as you never signed any T & Cs?

You could try but then the owner could refuse, and there is not much you can do.

Why not if you never agreed any T & Cs?

 

The owner didn't agree to ant Ts & Cs either!

As there are no T&Cs it is a bit of a grey area. A court would try and work out what a reasonable person observing the transaction would have thought.

 

 

From my perspective, this would usually be understood as a non-refundable deposit so not sure you would be able to get it back.

What happened is that a friend paid a deposit, but due to a change in circumstances they had to cancel and gave about a month's notice. The farmer was able to relet the pitch but still refuse to refund the deposit of £30. The farmer never suffered financially and actually gained.

However my question was more of a general question when someone requests a deposit and there is no contract present and no T & Cs. Basically an agreement between two individuals.

If it was not discussed that it would be refundable, then it would be up to goodwill?

To be fair some administration costs could be deductible.

Not worth chasing IMHO, but would be if it was a more substantial deposit, but would imagine T & C would be agreed then.
