BADI Platform allows Users to exchange information through the use of BADI Inbox and the following sequence of actions might follow:

Please note that Users can send as many Booking Requests as they want. However, the acceptance of one of them will automatically cancel the remaining pending Booking Requests.

In case a Booking Request is sent either by the Lister or by the Seeker, BADI will send a Booking Proposal to the other party, who will have 24 hours to accept or decline the Booking. If, after 24 hours, BADI has not received a response, BADI will consider the Booking Proposal expired.

In the event that the Booking Proposal is accepted, BADI will confirm the details of the Booking with both the Seeker and the Lister via email and SMS. In addition, this information will appear in the corresponding section within the respective User Account.

2.2.2.3. Rental Prices and Taxes

Users freely determine rental prices, and Listers can modify them at their convenience PRIOR to either sending an Invitation to Book to any Seeker or to sending a Booking request. Please note that once the Seeker accepts a booking correctly, and the Lister confirms it, the price determined by the Lister—both of the booking and monthly rental sum—cannot be modified. BADI does not recommend prices to its customers.

BADI is not in any way liable for taxes arising out of or derived from any such Leases. Therefore, Users are the sole responsible for the tax, any other obligations arising from the Lease, as well as any charges or encumbrances or contractual or extracontractual liability arising in connection with the lease and the relationship established between the Users, and Users expressly agree to hold BADI harmless in this regard. Indeed, Users are the sole responsible for compliance with local, regional, state or national laws that are applicable in each case.

Upon acceptance of a Booking Request, BADI will provide detailed information about BADI Fee amounts. Please note that fees might not be applicable depending on the location of the Premises. Therefore, we kindly invite you to check the information icon appearing next to the payment breakdown appearing before the confirmation of a Booking Request.
