i think you need someone who is fluent in legal-eze to look at the contract before deciding anything.

Tell her to contact a lawyer to look at her contract.

@rosworms: I agree.

@vannabehr: Have someone look through the contract because they may or may not be trying to more money than they’re entitled to.

Contact a lawyer so they can threaten the hotel.  That is ridiculous.  It is 2 months prior and they can easily re-book the space.

As someone who used to manage events in a hotel, it’s not THAT easy to book event space two months out…most people already have their spaces reserved a little more in advance that that….

Anyway, our policy was if the event was cancelled with less than 6 month notice, 25% was due plus the deposit.  3 months = 50% plus deposit, 1-3 month = 75%, and less than a month was 90%.

If she never agreed to pay for the rooms, they can’t hold her responsible. The rooms are typically not in the contract. It’s impossible for anyone to say without actually seeing it though. Once the hotel hears the word “lawyer” I’m sure they’ll back off on the 90% and the rooms, but she’ll certainly lose anything she’s already paid them and might still owe some this late.
