If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.

25.10 Even if we or an Owner delays enforcing a contract made under these Booking Conditions, we or the Owner (as applicable) can still enforce it later. If we or an Owner do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these Booking Conditions, or if we or an Owner delay in taking steps against you in respect of you breaking a contract made under them, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us or an Owner (as applicable) taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and an Owner does not chase you but continues to provide the Rental Services, they can still require you to make the payment at a later date.

25.11 Which laws apply to these Booking Conditions and any Contract between us and where you may bring legal proceedings. These Booking Conditions and any contracts made under them are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of any such contracts in the English courts. If you live in Scotland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of any contracts made under these Booking Conditions in either the Scottish or the English courts. If you live in Northern Ireland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of any contracts made under these Booking Conditions in either the Northern Irish or the English courts. If you live in the Republic of Ireland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of any contracts made under these Booking Conditions in either the courts of the Republic of Ireland or the English courts.

25.12 Alternative Dispute Resolution. If we are unable to resolve a complaint to your satisfaction, we can also offer you CEDR’s (Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution) scheme for the resolution of disputes, which is an impartial and independent arbitration service.

Any changes will take effect 7 days after the date of our email or the date on which we post the modified terms on the Site, whichever is the earlier. If you continue to use the Site after that period has expired, it means that you accept any such changes. The modified Booking Conditions will not apply to any Bookings that we confirm with you before the date the modified Booking Conditions come into effect.
