  10. The Member is liable for any damage caused by the Member or those in the Co-working Space with his/her permission or invitation.
  11. The Member must not install any furniture or office equipment, cabling, IT or telecoms connections without hotdezk consent, which it may withhold at its absolute discretion.
  12. The Member should leave the desk area clean and free of their belongings at the end of the booking period; otherwise, hotdezk may require the Member to pay a cleaning surcharge.
  13. hotdezk Co-working is a no smoking environment. The Member may smoke in the designated area in the Courtyard, but must keep that area tidy.
  14. Alcohol may not be consumed on the premises unless it is within an event being run by hotdezk, or for which hotdezk have given written consent.
  15. Recreational drug use is not permitted and if discovered, will result in immediate termination of membership. No refunds will be due to the member.
  1. Any payment made provides the Service that was applicable at the point of payment. It does not guarantee that any recurring fee will be the same amount, or that the next payment when due will provide the same level of Service.
  2. hotdezk Co-working membership charges are payable in advance by bank transfer. hotdezk reserves the right to introduce credit/debit card payment at a later date. Current membership charges may be found on the Website. Failure to pay or late payment of membership charges or other charges may result in hotdezk terminating membership. hotdezk reserves the right to take appropriate steps to recover arrears.
  3. Payment for any other Service(s) provided to Members will be in advance by bank transfer at the point of ordering or booking the Service(s).
  4. Where a payment is made after the due date, and any Services were denied as a result, no refund will be due on those denied services.
  5. Where a payment is made after the due date, hotdezk reserve the right to charge interest on the overdue amount at the rate of 4% over the base rate of HSBC plc, calculated on a daily basis from due date to payment date.
  6. hotdezk also reserve the right to charge an administration fee of £20 where a payment is more than 10 working days late. Such a charge may be made on each invoice that the Member is late in paying.
  7. All banking charges in relation to a payment are the responsibility of the Member.
  8. If the Member disputes any part of an invoice, they must still pay any amounts not in dispute by the due date.
  9. hotdezk is not obliged to refund any amounts for a period when membership is unused except if hotdezk elects to terminate a Member’s membership for any reason or if there has been payment in advance for a Service which is withdrawn by hotdezk prior to use by a Member.
  10. hotdezk Co-working membership may not be transferred or assigned.
  1. Silver membership with bundles greater than 20 days may be paid on a monthly basis.
  2. The cost of the bundle will be divided into 10 equal payments, although the days available in the bundle can be used across a whole year (12 months).
  3. When monthly payment is chosen, the member may use the days in their bundle at a rate of 10% of total days purchased per month. For instance, if a 50-day bundle is purchased, the member may book up to 5 days per month.
  4. Unused days in a month may be rolled forward. If a member only uses 2 days one month of their 5, they therefore have 3 days “credit” to use in the following months. However, unused days CANNOT be rolled forward past the 12 month duration of the bundle purchased. There are no refunds on unused days.
  5. The member may exceed their monthly quota by no more than 20%. In the continuing example of a 50-day bundle, the member can exceed their 5 day a month limit by 1 day ie 6 days without any change to their payment plan.
  6. If at any stage a member exceeds the cumulative limit of the days in their plan by 20%, then the overuse will be subject to immediate payment. For instance, and continuing the 50-day bundle example, after 3 months of membership only 15 of the 50 days should have been used. If the member has actually used 20 days at that point, then we will require payment for the additional 5 days used.
  7. Where excess usage days are paid for, the member will continue paying at the standard monthly rate set out at the start of the plan. However, because of the early payment, the payment plan will end earlier than originally scheduled.
  8. If all the days in a bundle are used before the 12 month anniversary of the plan, a new bundle will need to be purchased to continue usage of hotdezk.
  9. If a Silver member decides to end their membership early, before all payments have been made, they agree to pay an adjustment fee based on the standard Bronze day booking charge. For example, the member has purchased a 50-day bundle payable monthly. After 4 months, they have used 22 days, and paid 4 x £90 (£360). If they terminate membership at this point, the adjustment is calculated as 22 days used at Bronze rate of £30 per day, total £660. Having paid £360 already, an adjustment invoice of £300 will be raised to the member, and the member will pay this liability given their acceptance of these Monthly Payment Plan terms.
