Personally I would ask for a deposit.

i don't realy like retainers for mindees before they have started, although do use them for my term time contracts in holidays, iyswim?

I would ask for a month & then deduct it as they start.

HTH :)

No worries - glad to help.

Others may do it differently, but at the end of the day do what ever suits you best as its your business that you are running.

Good luck with the parent :thumbsup:
