You must comply with the house rules which we impose generally on users of the business residence whether the reasons be for health and safety, fire precautions or otherwise. You must not bring animals onto the premises. You may not play music or use amplification equipment in a way which can be heard by other members.

It is your responsibility to arrange insurance for your own or any other property which you bring into the business residence and for your own liability to your employees and to third parties.
PROVIDING THE SERVICES
Use of the lounges
We will provide furniture in lounges for you to use for meetings and work spaces, however these spaces are taken on a first come first served basis. We cannot guarantee availability but will do everything possible to accommodate you.
The start of the agreement
If for any reason we are unable to provide access to the business residence or lounges as stated in your agreement by the due date for commencement we have no liability to you or for any loss or damages so arising, however, you will have the option of cancelling the agreement without penalty. We will not charge you for the use of the membership services until they become available.
Suspension of services
We may by notice suspend the provision of services (including access to the lounges and business residence) for any reasons or events beyond our control, in which case payment of the agreement fee will also be suspended for the same period.
The extent of your rights of occupation under this agreement
This agreement gives you the commercial equivalent of an agreement for accommodation in a hotel. The whole of the business residence remains our property and in our possession and control. You accept that you have no interest in the property save for the right to share the use of it so that we can provide the services to you. The agreement is personal to you and not capable of being transferred to anyone else. We however reserve the right to transfer the benefit of this agreement along with our obligations under it at any time.
Your agreement lasts for the period of one year from the commencement date and will then automatically be renewed for successive periods of one month until brought to an end by either you or us.
Terminating your agreement
Either of us can terminate the agreement at the end of the date stated in it, or by giving at least one month’s written notice to the other.
Terminating your agreement immediately
We may terminate your agreement immediately upon notice if:
we have reason to suspect that you may not be able to pay the fees, or
you are in breach of one or more of your obligations which cannot be put right, or which we have given you notice to put right and which you have failed to do within seven days of that notice, or your conduct, or that of someone in the business residence with your permission or at your invitation, is incompatible with ordinary or acceptable office use.
Your conduct, or that of someone in the business residence with your permission or at your invitation, does not comply with our etiquette requirements.
Please note that termination of the agreement for any of the above reasons does not negate any outstanding obligations you may have and you must comply with those obligations, i.e.
pay for any additional services you have used
pay the agreement fee for the remainder of the period for which your agreement would have lasted had we not terminated it, or (if longer) for a further period of one month, and
indemnify us against all costs and losses we incur as a result of termination.
When your agreement ends
You must vacate the business residence immediately. If you leave any of your own property in the business residence we may dispose of it in any way we choose without any liability to you.
If you continue to use the business residence after your agreement has ended, you are responsible for any loss, claim or liability we incur as a result of your failure to vacate on time. We may, at our discretion, permit you an extension subject to surcharge on the agreement fee. This must however be agreed in advance.
While your agreement is in force and for a period of six months after it ends, you must not solicit or offer any employment to our staff. If you do, we estimate our loss at the equivalent of one year's salary of the employees concerned and you must pay us damages equal to that amount. You agree that this is a genuine pre-estimate of damage.
All formal notices must be in writing and addressed to the General Manager, Dryland 96 Kensington High Street, London W8 4SG. If we are giving notice to you we will give it to you in person or send it to the last address we have for you.
The terms of your agreement are confidential. Neither of us must disclose them without the other's consent unless required to do so by law or by an official authority. This obligation continues for a period of one year after your agreement ends.
You must indemnify us in respect of all liability, claims, damages, loss and expenses, which may arise where,
someone dies or is injured while in the work space you are using or is in the building at your request, or
From a third party in respect of your use of the business residence howsoever arising, or
from a third party in respect of the provision of our services to you howsoever arising, or
if you do not comply with the terms of your agreement
You also agree to pay any costs, including reasonable legal fees, which we incur in enforcing your agreement.
If for any reason we cannot provide you with any service our liability is limited to crediting or returning to you a fair proportion of the relevant fee. To the extent permitted by law, we have no liability whatsoever for any consequential loss as a result of anything we or our staff do or fail to do.
We both agree that English law shall apply to your agreement.
Where we have agreed monthly payments, the membership fee plus VAT, is payable in advance in full on the 15th of each month. For any period of less than one month this fee will be apportioned on a daily basis.
Additional services and facilities
Fees for additional services are invoiced in arrears and payable on the 15th day of every month following the calendar month in which the additional services are provided.
You will be required to pay a deposit equivalent to one month’s agreement fee on entering into this agreement. This will be held by us, as security for performance of all your obligations under your agreement. The deposit, or any balance after deducting outstanding fees and other costs due to us will be returned to you within 60 days of termination of your agreement. We may however require you to pay an increased deposit where:
outstanding fees exceed the deposit held
you frequently fail to pay fees when due
you fail to sign a direct debit mandate when required.
Initial Payment (deposit and first month’s agreement fee): Cleared funds must be received by Dryland prior to occupation.
Standard Services: All payments are to be made by direct debit.
Additional Services: All payments are to be made by direct debit.
Variation of fees
We reserve the right to increase the agreement fee and additional service charges upon written notice. The deposit will be increased in line with any increases to the agreement fee.
If you do not pay fees when due, we may charge interest at the rate of 2% per month on the amount outstanding. If you dispute any part of the invoice you must pay the amount not in dispute by the due date.
We may withhold services (including for the avoidance of doubt, denying you access to the lounge and business residence) where you are liable for any outstanding fees and interest, or you are in breach of your agreement.
We are not liable for any loss as a result of our failure to provide any services or facilities referred to in this agreement which is due to any cause beyond our control. This includes but is not limited to acts of God, strikes, power or mechanical failure or failure by members of staff. In addition you are to inform us immediately of any such failure and must give us a reasonable time to put it right.
