We will all be using this contract as a working document as details refine on your event.   Please sign the contract and return to The Healyng Sanctuary.


Please read the material below to make sure all parties understand the requirements of providing for everyone’s safety and keeping The Healyng Sanctuary a well maintained and safe location for future use.

RENTAL FEES All balances must be payable to Jen Healy 10 days in advance.  A down payment and a security deposit check, along with the signed agreement, is required to reserve the date and space 30 days in advance.  Payment may be made by cash, check or paypal.   There is a 4% fee charged on credit card transactions. No terms are implied or granted and no work will be allowed to commence until full payment is received.

SECURITY DEPOSIT AND DAMAGE(S) A security deposit check of $500 made payable to Jen Healy is required and due 10 days prior to the event.   Please note that this deposit is separate from the down payment to secure the date and space.   This deposit will be refunded within three (3) days following the rental period provided the premises are maintained and left in the same condition as when rented, and satisfactory to The Healyng Sanctuary management.

However, if any cleaning or repairs deemed necessary beyond normal use (i.e. paint damage and floor gouges) will be charged and deducted from the security deposit.  The caterer, if used, must clean the premises within two (2) hours following the event leaving it in the same condition and working order as at the start of the event setup.  Renter/Caterers must remove all trash, composting and recyclables from the site as part of the clean up agreement.  Failure to remove or clean will result in additional fees.  If the building or any part of the premises or its historic contents, including furniture or artwork, is damaged during the event, renter will be solely responsible for such damage.  There is a $100 cleaning fee for all 1/2 day and full day events, in addition to the rental fees, when applicable.

INSURANCE AND LIABILITY Special Event Liability Insurance is highly suggested for ALL Renters and Caterers.   Established Catering Services may use their license and insurance to cover this.  The insurance must, at Renter’s sole expense, provide and maintain public liability and personal property damage insurance, insuring The Healyng Sanctuary employees, contractors and contracted vendors against all bodily injury, property damage, personal injury and other loss arising out of Renter’s use and occupancy of the premises, or any other occupant on the premises, including appurtenances to the premises and sidewalks.  The insurance required hereunder shall have a single limit liability of not less than $1 Million, and general aggregate liability of not less than $2 Million.

The Healyng Sanctuary shall be named as an additional insured of said policy.  If alcohol is to be served please make sure that the policy includes Host Liquor Liability coverage to protect you against alcohol-related accidents, as you are ultimately liable for the safety of your guests.   Any caterers and/or outside vendors, companies, and/or institutions MUST provide a copy of their Certificate of Insurance and Catering License to The Healyng Sanctuary, naming the The Healyng Sanctuary as stated, and will be delivered at least one month prior to the event.

LIABILITY Renter agrees to indemnify, defend, and hold The Healyng Sanctuary, its landlord, building owners, officers, employees, and agents harmless of and from any liabilities, costs, penalties, or expenses arising out of and/or resulting from the rental and use of the premises, including but not limited to, the personal guarantee of provision, service, and dispensing of payment by renter, its employees, and agents of alcoholic beverages at The Healyng Sanctuary.

In the event The Healyng Sanctuary, its landlord, building owners, officers, employees and/or agents, are required to file any action in court in order to enforce any provisions of this agreement, Renter agrees to pay The Healyng Sanctuary, its officers, landlord, building owners, employees and/or agents, all reasonable attorney fees, court fees, and costs of suit incurred by The Healyng Sanctuary, including all collection expenses and interest due.

CAPACITY Renter understands that the maximum standing capacity of The Healyng Sanctuary is 40 people and will not exceed this limit.

SITE DECORATION The Healyng Sanctuary wants to make every event here a special and welcome experience. Therefore every effort will be made to allow Renter to prepare decorations reflecting their creative requirements. We ask that only the staff of The Healyng Sanctuary rearrange and move any furnishings, including artwork, lamps, antiques or seating.  No nails, screws, staples or penetrating items should be used on our walls or fine wood.  Any tape or gummed backing materials must be properly removed and any wall damage will be deducted from the deposit.  No glitter or foil (non-paper) confetti is allowed on site.

CONDUCT There is absolutely no drug use or smoking of any kind tolerated on premises or within 25 feet of the building including loitering or congregating outside on the sidewalk at any time during the event.  Disparaging remarks or any type of physical violence will not be tolerated and will be cause for immediate expulsion.  Renter and guests shall use the premises in a considerate manner at all times.  Conduct deemed disorderly at the sole discretion of The Healyng Sanctuary staff shall be grounds for immediate expulsion from the premises and conclusion of the rental period. In such cases NO refund of the rental fee shall be made.

NOISE Renter acknowledges that the premises are located near residential units and therefore agrees to control the noise level at the event such that it not disturb neighboring occupants.  In the event that renter’s event creates a disturbance due to high noise volume, renter shall immediately reduce the volume.  If repeated disturbances are created, at The Healyng Sanctuary discretion, renter may be expelled from the premises or the offending noise will be ended. In the event of disturbances to the point of expulsion, no portion of the rental fee will be refunded to renter.  Note:  Music must end by 10 p.m. during weeknights and by midnight on weekends.   Additional time can easily be added provided the volume is modest and it cannot be heard beyond the boundaries of the property or by immediate neighbors.

LOST AND FOUND The Healyng Sanctuary take no responsibility for personal effects and possessions left on premises during or after any event.  We do, however, maintain a lost and found and will hold recovered items up to 60 days. Every attempt will be made to return any recovered item to its rightful owner.
