Terms and conditions

By mooring, anchoring or remaining stationary at this location at any time, you, the person or persons, in control of the vessel agree to pay a charge of £100 per day, payable within 28 days if any of the following conditions are met:

  • where no pre-payment has been made
  • the vessel is recorded as exceeding the pre-paid time
  • the vessel returns to moor at this location in excess of the time frame set out above

District Enforcement has the right to exercise a general lien upon any vessel and/or other property of the vessel owner whilst in or on this site, until any money due to District Enforcement in respect of mooring fees, storage or other charges, or otherwise shall be paid.

Mooring/storage charges will continue to apply during this time. District Enforcement may exercise their lien at any time and any lien shall extend to cover the cost of recovering any sums due and for that purpose District Enforcement shall have the right to sell the goods by public auction or private treaty without notice to the owner.

District Enforcement Ltd is likely to take debt recovery action (including court action) that will incur further costs. 

Legal and other such costs will be added to the charge and are payable on an indemnity basis.
