Frequently Asked Questions

What does the rent include?

The rent includes all utilities, internet, as well as living in a fully furnished apartment. It also includes the use of the building amenities, such as a gym, swimming pool, rooftop, and so on (if applicable).

How does the rent payment work?

At the time of check-out, you are only required to make your deposit and service fee payment. Paying a deposit will secure your room. Your first rent payment is due upon your move-in. Let's say today is January 15 and you would like to book a room from March 1 to September 31. Today, you will need to pay the deposit amount to hold your room. The first rent payment is due any time until March 1. You will need to pay your first rent to receive your apartment keys. In other words, the deposit secures your room, and the first rent brings you the keys.

After the booking submission, you will be asked to follow the instructions to verify your identity, proof of study/work, proof of address and guarantor documents. They want to make sure we only accept people who are verified to be a good fit for their co-living community.What is required for booking? To book you will need to complete the verification process by uploading a photo ID, proof of study/work, proof of address, and guarantor documents, and then pay the deposit listed in the booking process. If you are a student, they require proof of study instead of proof of work. This full process can be completed online. What is proof of guarantor? It is proof that you have a guarantor agreeing to secure or 'guarantee' tenancy agreement/contract. A guarantor can be an individual (parent, spouse, relative, etc.) who promises to pay a tenant’s debt in the case the payment has not been transferred for a reason.

Why can’t I select the dates I want?

You can only select the beginning and end of the month as a move-in date. How do my friend and I rent an apartment together? Bookings are done individually, but you may request to live in the same apartment with your friend. They do their best to make this happen but it is based on availability. Can I meet my roommates before moving in? In most circumstances, your exact room is assigned the day you move in. Their housing coordinators will introduce you to your roommates when you move in. 

Are Property premises Co-ed?

They have all-female, all-male, and mixed apartments, based on availability at the time of booking. During the booking process kindly let them know your preference and they will do their best to accommodate it.

Why am I paying a furniture deposit?

The furniture deposit is to secure the room and cover any potential damage to furniture, other loss, or default in rent payment. Is the furniture deposit returned? The deposit will be returned within 21 business days after the rooming agreement term stays, provided that the contractual obligations have been met and mandatory fees have been deducted.What is the Service Fee? The service fee is a non-refundable administrative fee, to cover costs associated with your application process, verification, screening, and contract preparation.

Do I pay my rent month to month, or weekly?

They allow flexible lease terms, and rent payment is due every 4 weeks. A payment plan will be generated and added to the end of your housing agreement for your reference.

You will need to make payments in 3 installments of $1100/each.What if I want to change my room type? Room type changes are subject to availability and will involve an extra cleaning fee pending approval. How can I extend my stay? You need to provide a written request to extend your stay, preferably with a 30-day notice.
