Please Note: This does not include hold dates. You can place a soft hold on any date without a deposit, you would then get first right to book the space if someone else is interested in that date. It is possible that the date you want is on hold right now. If someone already has a hold on a date then you would be in the second hold position. If you were to want that date the person in the first hold position would have 1 business day to produce the deposit check or it would fall to the person in the second hold position. You would then be required to place a deposit of half the rental amount and that would book the date. A soft hold is good for 7 days and then it expires. You may put another soft hold on that date if you contact the venue before it expires. Also, if someone is interested in booking a date that you have held then you would be required to provide the booking forms and deposit within 1 business day or that date would be given to the other client. Let me know if you have any questions on this.
