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:

(1) fail to give written move-out notice as required in this Lease Contract; or

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

(3) move out at 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 our $690 tenant replacement fee and 30 days notice if you find someone that is willing to take over your lease, goes through our process and meets our criteria. For additional information, please reach out to our customer service team.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is coliving?

Coliving is a shared housing model. Tenants, whom they call members, share kitchens, living rooms and other common spaces with all members, and have a private or shared bedrooms.

Availability is alway changing, so well send you our current availability (based on the type of room you're looking for) in an offer when you apply (which is free). The availability in the offer sheet is subject to change, as people sign offers on a first-come-first-serve basis.

What do your cleaners clean?

Our trusted team cleaning team prepares your room before your stay, then cleans all common/shared areas and restocks all supplies during your stay.

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 our houses in New York, Jersey City  and San Francisco.

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

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

The typical people who live in our spaces are between the ages of 21 and 35; around half are international members and half are American; about 30 percent are students (undergraduate, graduate, post-graduate, or short-term programs); and 70 percent are already in their professional fields, from all different professional backgrounds! The gender breakdown changes all the time, but on average its 50-50.

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 our 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 our common areas to keep everyones valuables safe. These are not monitored, and are only accessed when our members request that they look at them for justifiable purposes (missing items left in common rooms, suspicious activity, etc.). Most of our 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 our security systems mentioned above, our members are selected for their appreciation of a safe environment.

How do you create a sense of community?

From our house leaders (who will meet you upon arrival), to the events they hold multiple times per month, our team is dedicated to giving you the sense of community you are looking for, whether in a professional or personal capacity. You may choose to be as involved or uninvolved as youd like; you are welcome to stay with us either way! Check out our blog to get an understanding of our community.
