4. Booking procedure
4.1 How we will accept your booking. Our acceptance of your order will take place when we email you to accept it, at which point a legally binding contract will come into existence between you and us. We must be made aware before completion of the booking of any special requirements of you or any guest and we shall use all reasonable endeavours to accommodate such requests. We will let you know before confirmation of the booking if we are unable to meet such requirements.
4.2 By completing our booking form you give your authorisation for us to contact credit reference agencies and to make enquiries relating to your financial and moral standing. The details supplied by you may be checked against those held on credit reference agency databases. This does not affect your ability to obtain credit or other Services in any way. By completing our booking form you agree that your contract is with The Squa.re or the applicable Network Partner.
4.3 We will assign a reference number to your booking and tell you what it is when we accept your booking. It will help us if you can tell us the reference number whenever you contact us about your booking.
4.4 Any booking form completed by you will be considered an offer to take a bare licence of the relevant apartment (“Property”) subject to these terms or the terms of the applicable Network Partner. All Properties are occupied purely as serviced temporary accommodation for you and your guests and neither you nor your guests will be entitled to a tenancy or an assured shorthold or assured tenancy. No relationship of landlord and tenant is created and no statutory security of tenure exists now or when the period of occupation ends. If you or any of your guests fail to vacate at the end of this period you will be charged the appropriate charges for each additional day or part thereof that you remain within the Property. No-one other than you and the named guests have the right to use the Property.
4.5 The booking procedure (whether your booking is made online (website or email) or by telephone or chat bookings) will be said to be complete and a binding contract in force only when you receive an email from the Company confirming the booking with all relevant details (to the e-mail address you provide) and with all payment terms having been satisfied. It is your responsibility to check that all details we have provided for the booking are correct and to inform us of any errors. We shall not be liable for any errors if we are not so informed but we will correct any errors immediately upon notification. Should there be a subsequent change of email address you must inform us, and it is your responsibility to check your email for any subsequent information relating to the booking.
4.6 You and your guests, who must be named in the booking form in advance, shall be bound by these terms or those of the Network Partner at the earlier of (i) payment by you for your booking and (ii) completion of the booking procedure pursuant to clause 4.5 or 5.2 (as applicable).
5. Your Contract with a Network Partner
5.1 Where the Company acts for Properties not operated by the Company but by its Network Partners, we act as an introductory agent for our Network Partners only. Your contract for a booking at a property operated by the Network Partner will therefore be between you and the Network Partner and different terms and conditions may apply. These, and the details of the Network Partner with whom you are contracting, will be provided to you before any booking is made. By continuing to make a booking with a Network Partner through this site, you confirm that you have received all applicable terms and conditions. We act solely as a platform through this website for you to make bookings for properties advertised by our Network Partners who have authorised us to act as their agent to take bookings for their Services in accordance with their terms.
5.2 When a confirmation of your booking is issued, you will be entering into a legally binding contract for the provision of the Services directly with the applicable Network Partner. We are not party to the contract between you and the Network Partner and we accept no liability for the acts or failure to act by any Network Partner connected with your booking.
5.3 Other than our administrative and booking obligations specified in these terms, we shall not be liable to you or your guests for any amounts in relation to any acts or omissions or any damage or issue arising pursuant to your contract with the relevant Network Partner. We accept no liability for death, personal injury, loss or damage of any kind to you or your guests, unless caused by our own negligence.
6. If we cannot accept your booking.
6.1 If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this in writing and will not charge you for the Services. This might be because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because a credit reference we have obtained for you does not meet our minimum requirements, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the Services or because we are unable to provide Services on the dates you have specified.
6.2 Thesqua.re reserves the right to ask guests for IDs of people staying in our apartments if fraudulent activity is suspected. Thesqua.re also reserves the right to refuse access to guests.
7. Your rights to make changes
If you wish to make a change to the Services you have ordered please contact us. We will let you know if the change is possible. If it is possible we will let you know about any changes to the price, the timing or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change. If we cannot make the change or the consequences of making the change are unacceptable to you, you may want to end the contract (see clause 11- Your rights of cancellation or amendment).
8. Our rights to make changes
8.1 Minor changes to the Services. We may change the Services:
- (a) to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements;

other changes to these terms or the Services, but if we do so we will notify you and
you may then contact us to end the contract before the changes take effect and

We do not anticipate altering a booking but sometimes due to circumstances beyond our reasonable control we are unable to proceed with the initial Property booked.

For corporate bookings we may be able to agree credit terms, which would need to be agreed prior to any booking being confirmed.
9.2 For bookings of 180 nights and more, a deposit equivalent to 4 weeks of the booking charges is required at the time of booking. For each month for the duration of the booking, an invoice will be raised not less than one week before the start of each month. For corporate bookings we may be able to agree credit terms, which would need to be agreed prior to any booking being confirmed.
9.3 We will request a credit card prior to booking, to be held on file for any additional charges, and the Company reserves the right to cancel a booking should this not be provided.

If the alternative apartment is advertised at a lower price, you will receive a refund of the price difference. However, if the alternative apartment is at a higher price the new price will be payable. If you do not wish to accept a change or any alternative apartment offered or we cannot offer you a suitable alternative apartment, you may be entitled to cancel your booking and receive a refund unless this is the result of an Event beyond our Control – see below. You should tell us as soon as possible whether you wish to accept any change or alternative apartment offered or alternatively if you want a refund.Once the change/alternative apartment has been accepted by the guest in writing, It then falls under our cancellation policies stated above.
