Membership Terms (eng)
1. Parties, scope of the agreement
The Tenant has access to the facilities at 657 Oslo, Fredensborgveien 22G. This includes meeting rooms up to 3 hours per day per business, kitchen facilities and common areas.
Event space such as the Process Room, Scale and The Hall are rented separately and according to agreement. The rent includes electricity, broadband, caretaker services, monthly cleaning, reception services, postal address and mailbox, as well as full-service printer with color and a qualified scanner, coffee & tea.
Locking systems, video surveillance in common areas and alarms are installed and ensure satisfactory security relative to the building’s location.
2. The Rental Object
The Rental Object is leased “as is” with existing furniture, and shall otherwise be in compliance with the terms of this agreement. Unless otherwise agreed, the Rental Object, including existing furniture, shall be cleaned and in normal good condition.
If the Tenant requires additional furniture, office desks etc., the Landlord will be helpful to arrange this. Any claims regarding the condition of the rental object must be submitted in writing within a reasonable period of time after it ought to have discovered these. Any circumstances that had come to the knowledge of the Tenant as per handover cannot subsequently be invoked as defects.
3. The Rent
The Rent may be adjusted on 1st of January each year, in line with any changes in the consumer price index published by Statistics Norway or, if the said index is abolished, another corresponding public index. Rent adjustments shall be based on changes from the original lease index value to the most recent known index value as per the adjustment date.
The rent is paid 3 months at time and in advance, unless otherwise is agreed. 657 Oslo AS sends an invoice for the amount, by e-mail. If the Tenant is not registered for VAT, no VAT will be invoiced – but there will be a surcharge of 20% on the rent and membership fee. This is to compensate for the Landlord’s loss on VAT deduction.
If the Tenant is liable for paying VAT, the rent and membership fee are invoiced with the addition of VAT. In the event of late payment of the Rent and/or other costs relating to the lease, late payment interest shall be paid pursuant to Act of 17 December 1976 No. 100 or any statute replacing the said Act. The Landlord shall be entitled to impose a fee in respect of any payment reminders.
(1) Each of the parties shall keep its assets insured.
(2) The owner of the building insures the building itself, and not the assets of the Tenant.
(3) The Tenant insure his/her own furnishings, fixed and loose furniture, goods, operating losses / interruptions and his own liability. In the event of damage to the rental object, the Tenant’s own insurance must be used. We therefore emphasize the importance of the Tenant taking out his own insurance on his own movables and fixtures.
657 Oslo has fire alarm systems in accordance with relevant laws and regulations. The Landlord points out that the 110 switchboard of the Fire Brigade will be notified if the alarm goes off. We therefore ask everyone to be aware of cooking and other things that can trigger the fire alarm unnecessarily. If the Tenant triggers the alarm, they may be liable for any emergency response costs.
5. The use of the Rent Object by the Tenant
The Tenant must use the premises as an office. The Tenant is obliged to treat the premises with sufficient care, and to take other tenants into the office building into account. The Tenant is responsible for any damage or defects caused by the Tenant himself or persons to whom the Tenant has given access to the premises. In other respects, reference is made to the rules for the house and the membership in general which are regulated in the Membership Letter to 657.
There is a 3 months mutual notice on the premises, unless otherwise specified in the contract. This must be notified in writing to the person responsible for the lease in 657 Oslo before the end of the month. The notice period runs 3 months from the first day of the following calendar month after the notice is given. After the Tenant has notified in writing that the lease has been terminated or that the tenancy will be terminated for other reasons, the Landlord has the opportunity to inspect the premises to other interested tenants.
When moving out, the Tenant must return the space/office in a maintained condition, tidy and clean. If the Tenant defaults on the rent for more than two months, the tenancy can be terminated with one month’s notice.
The Tenant may not sublet or assign the lease agreement, in full or in part, without the prior written consent of the Landlord. Consent may be withheld at the unfettered discretion of the Landlord.
If the Rental Object are destroyed by fire or other accidental event, the Landlord may waive all of its rights and obligations under this agreement.
The Tenant accepts mandatory eviction if the rent or any supplementary payments agreed are not paid in full, cf. Section 13-2, Sub-section 3 (a), of the Enforcement Act. The Tenant accepts mandatory eviction upon the expiry of the Lease Term, cf. Section 13-2, Sub-section 3 (b), of the Enforcement Act.
10. Keys & access
Keys to the office will be issued. Keys are personal and must not be used by anyone other than the tenant. In the event of loss of keys, 657 Oslo will invoice NOK 150 ex. VAT. for restoration and purchase of a new key. It is important that tenants who lose keys notify this as soon as possible. Code for alarm should never be noted on key.
Upon termination of the lease, the keys must be handed in to the administration. The holder will invoice NOK 500 ex. VAT per key that is not handed in.
The Landlord uses Unloc, which gives their members access to the house 24/7. When a contract is signed, new members are automatically added to the system.
11. Camera surveillance
657 Oslo have camera surveillance for security reasons, of all entrances in the G-building and the reception. Here, the area is marked with “monitored area” and made visible to tenants and visitors.
Video images are only stored for 4 days and are deleted automatically after that. Photos will only be used by the landlord in the event of illegal acts or as evidence if the police request this.
We cannot disclose information about what has been taken up to our tenants. The Landlord also store key tag/Unloc gestures in our access control system. This is stored for up to 30 days and then deleted. Information from the system will only be used by the landlord in the event of illegal acts or as evidence if the police so request. We cannot disclose information about what has been taken up to our tenants.
Disagreements between the parties shall be resolved amicably. If the parties do not reach an agreement, each of them can bring the case to a decision in the ordinary courts with Oslo as venue.
Disputes arising out of the agreement shall be settled in accordance with Norwegian law.
