CoWork @ The Montgomery Use Agreement
CoWorking is a relatively new approach to work that involves sharing of business space and resources, and a sense of community, collaboration and social interaction among people not employed by the same organization. Typical community members are work-at-home professionals, independent contractors, people working remotely from their employer, self-employed, etc.
As a community of professionals we are guided by common courtesy, etiquette and mutual respect. Thus, written rules and prohibitions are at a minimum. The purpose of these Terms and Conditions (“T&C”) is not to set out a comprehensive list of rules governing our daily work, but rather to outline the necessary legal requirements pertaining to membership.
This agreement of terms and conditions is between TK, LLC, a Wyoming Limited Liability Company doing business as CoWork at The Montgomery, located at 33 W. Brundage Street, Suite 201, Sheridan, WY 82801, and you as a member (referred to as “You” or “Member”) of the CoWork at The Montgomery community. The CoWork premises consists of approximately 2,000 square feet of commercial office at the above address. Over half of the premises is shared and used in common by all members on a non-exclusive. The balance of the premises is dedicated office space used by dedicated office members.
Membership, Payment and Termination
Members enjoy the use of Suite 201 subject to these terms and conditions. CoWork @ The Montgomery reserves the right to update the T&C at any time without notice. CoWork @ The Montgomery membership does not create a tenancy but a prepaid usage license to use the premises on a monthly or casual basis.
CoWork @ The Montgomery includes shared work space and conference space. Members have access to our internet, coffee bar, printers, scanners and other business amenities.
Membership is billed for a full month, monthly, in advance, on the first day of each month via automatic charge to your credit card. Also included are other charges that may have been incurred during the previous period. Renewal for a full month is automatic unless you notify us five (5) calendar days before the first of the following month. For dedicated office membership, thirty (30) days notice prior to the first of the month is required. Payment for casual usage is paid on the day of use unless other arrangements have been made with CoWork @ The Montgomery.
CoWork at The Montgomery reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to terminate a membership at any time and refund the balance of the month’s membership, after deducting any other amounts that may be owed.
