Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a lease I have to sign?
There is no lease however; there is a rental agreement that covers the rules and terms around being a short term co-renter. It is not designed to lock-in any specific time period; rather rent is based on a month by month obligation.
 
Is there any security deposit required?
Yes there is a security deposit of $150 required to hold your reservation, or prior to moving in. This deposit will be returned to you upon your moving out; assuming responsibilities are met.
 
Is there a place for me to park my car?
Yes, off street parking is available to all co-renters. The neighborhoods are very safe and secure, and I have never heard of any problems.

Are pets allowed?

May I have an overnight or weekend guest?
We request that the number of people living in the home equal the number of people holding a rental agreement. However, this does not mean that we would limit your wish to have visitors on the premises and reasonable overnight guests.
