Cancellation Policy:-

You'll be liable to them for a re-renting charge  (not to exceed 100% of the highest monthly rent during the Lease Contract term) if you:

(2) move out without paying rent in full for the entire Lease Contract term or renewal period; or

(3) move out at their demand because of your default; or

(4) are judicially evicted.

The reletting charge is not a cancellation fee and does not release you from your obligations under this Lease Contract.

If you would like to cancel during your stay, you will be responsible for two additional payments: the payment of your next months rent, plus a $690 Tenant Replacement Fee. So, for example it's January 14th, and you have already paid for the month of January. Now you would like to cancel. You will be responsible for paying for the month of February, plus a $690 Tenant Replacement Fee.

They are happy to waive their  $690 tenant replacement fee and 30 days notice if you find someone that is willing to take over your lease, goes through their  process and meets their criteria. For additional information, please reach out to their  customer service team.

What is the price?

Prices vary depending on which house you choose and whether you choose to stay in a private or a shared room. Exact pricing can be found on the specific webpage for each of  their   houses in New York, Jersey City  and San Francisco.

Why are there no addresses for your houses on the website?

For the security of  their   current members living in  their   spaces, they do not reveal the exact address of the spaces until you receive an offer. All of  their   houses are within a 10-minute walk of a subway line. You can check out the approximate locations of  their  houses here.

So you guys are an apartment?

No! locations are within apartment buildings, but operate unlike any apartment you've ever been it. Coliving is a shared housing model, so space is shared across apartments. However, if you and your friends would like to rent a full private apartment, please enquire and we'll see what they can do!

Who are the type of people who usually live in your spaces?

How do I pay for rent?

All payments are sent as electronic invoices sent to your email. You may pay in any electronic format; they discourage cash or checks, though it is possible. For your first moth's rent, you will receive an invoice to pay after being approved as a client. For all future month's payments, when you pay depends on when you move in. If you arent moving in on the first day of the month, your first months invoice will be for one month starting from your move-in date. For the second invoice, you will be billed a pro-rated amount until the last day of the month. After that, all future months will be billed from the first day of the month to the last day of the month. If you are moving in on the first of the month, your rent is always due on the first of the month, with no pro-rated invoices.

What's the security like at your locations?

Most of their locations are equipped with keypad access and an August Lock security system, although a few use traditional keyed locks. they have Nest security systems in all of their common areas to keep everyones valuables safe. These are not monitored, and are only accessed when their members request that they look at them for justifiable purposes (missing items left in common rooms, suspicious activity, etc.). Most of their locations also have lockers for members valuables. In addition to the above, coliving provides a unique, unintended security benefit: Because many people are living in the same spaces, there is virtually always someone at home.

Why are there no locks on the doors?

The New York Housing Department policy disallows residential properties from placing locks on bedroom doors for fire safety purposes; however, even if property were allowed to put locks on the doors, property is committed to providing safe and secure coliving spaces through trust and mutual respect. Bedroom doors are unlocked because it is a display of this trust and respect; on top of their security systems mentioned above, their members are selected for their appreciation of a safe environment.

How do you create a sense of community?
