2. Role of Tempo Space

Tempo Space is a platform that introduces Renters who need short term retail space to Owners of Space. We make it easy for Renters to find space that suits their needs and for them to find an Owner with a suitable Space. If the Owner is happy then the Owner and the Renter will enter into a rental agreement directly. Tempo Space then collects the rental payments from the Renter, on behalf of the Owner.

While we ask Renters to provide information regarding their previous experience, it is always up to the Owner to decide whether to rent their Space to an individual Renter. Renters must satisfy themselves that the Space is suitable and that they want to rent from the Owner.  The agreement to rent the Space is directly between the Owner and Renter. You understand and agree that Tempo Space is not a party to any agreements entered into between Owners and Renters, nor is Tempo Space a real estate broker, brokerage, general agent or insurer of any party. You agree and understand that Tempo Space has no control over the conduct of Owners, Renters and other Users of its Services or the condition or suitability of any Spaces and has no liability in this regard. Tempo Space's role is limited to providing the Tempo Space website to facilitate the exchange of information between the Owners and Renters and to act as a limited agent strictly with respect to arranging payments between the Owners and Renters.


3.         Additional Terms and Conditions for Certain Services

Some of the Tempo Space Services may have different terms and conditions posted on the Tempo Space website or in other contracts, and they may require you to agree with and accept additional terms and conditions. If there is a conflict between these Terms and terms and conditions relevant to a specific area of the Services, the latter terms and conditions will take precedence.


4.         Changes to the Terms

Tempo Space has the right to modify the Services and Terms without notice. By continuing to access or use the Services after we have posted a modification to the Terms or in regards to the Services, you are indicating that you agree to be bound by the modified Terms. If the modified Terms are not acceptable to you, your only recourse is to cease using the Services. We may notify Owners and/or Renters of changes to the Terms. Any notifications will respect all relevant laws and regulations regarding changes to online terms and communications with customers.


5.         Insurance Policy

Tempo Space recommends that Space Owners obtain appropriate insurance for their Spaces. Please review any insurance policy that you may have for your space carefully, and in particular please make sure that you are familiar with and understand any exclusions to, and any deductibles that may apply for, such insurance policy, including, but not limited to, whether or not your insurance policy will cover the actions or inactions of Renters (and the individuals the Renters may invite to the space, if applicable) while Renters are at your property.


Tempo Space further recommends that Renters obtain appropriate insurance for the purpose of their rental of a Space.


Tempo Space may provide Renters with access to a reduced rate on certain short-term general liability insurance provided by an unaffiliated insurance company that provides Renters with general liability insurance coverage that may supplement their existing coverage, so long as the Renters are in compliance with this Agreement. In order for Renters to be eligible for this reduced rate, Renters may be required to opt into it by following the instructions provided to them by Tempo Space. As with any insurance policy, specific terms, limitations, and exclusions apply, including without limitation regarding the types of products and services that may be sold in order for coverage to apply.


Tempo Space will never act as an insurer, producer of insurance, broker, or brokerage firm.

Any third-party fees related to returned or cancelled payments due to a contact or payment information error or omission may be deducted from the newly issued payment.

4) Owner’s Policy: Policy Agreed Upon by Owner & Renter:

If the Owner chooses this option, they will set their own cancellation policy. By agreeing to rent from that Owner, the Renter agrees to abide by the policy set by the Owner. Tempo Space will have no obligations and may have no knowledge of the particulars of this policy.



** If the Owner lists a Space under the Strict, Firm, or Freedom Cancellation Policy, the Renter and Owner may reach a separate agreement regarding cancellation. Any separate agreement between the Renter and Owner will take precedence and will supercede the policy chosen by the Owner on the relevant Space listing. Tempo Space may not have any knowledge of the particulars of this separate agreement.  Tempo Space will not be party to that separate agreement and will have no duties to any party to that agreement.**


We have endeavoured to explain the Fees as plainly as possible.  If you do not understand the fee structure, please contact us to explain the fees.
