ROOM GUIDELINES (room/deposit info)(see also Policy)
-No smoking (offenders are subject to immediate removal), or candles, or incense, or any lighted flames in the rooms or anywhere in the building.
-All materials brought or installed in the space must be non-flammable, flame retardant and code compliant (including any soundproofing, foam, wall-covering, carpeting).
-Garbage Disposal is your responsibility; no garbage or property may be left in hallways or in front of the building. Garbage must be placed in black trash bags (Recycling in clear bags) and placed in designated trash areas. Recycling: Cardboard (TiedUp) & SingleStream (bottles, Cans, plastic, aluminum). Any items that do not fit in trash bags must be removed (by you) away from the space (not left on curb). If a ticket results from your items being improperly left, you will be responsible.
-Light bulbs and basic maintenance within your space are your responsibility; use a surge protector for all electronics.
-Dehumidifiers and heaters (must be electric and non-combustible and must have auto-timer turnoff) are permitted. Heaters must always be turned off except when someone is in the room.
-Air Conditioners are not permitted.
-Windows may not be opened for security reasons. No playing or rehearsing with doors (or windows) open.
-Alterations*: You may construct shelves and/or additional soundproofing. No nails may be used. Use screw anchors and fasten fixtures to metal studs (which are placed every 16in - use magnetic studfinder) to avoid damaging walls (& masonry anchors if going into brick/block). Sprinkler heads (normally round white discs on the ceilings) and HVAC vents may not be obstructed in any way; no item or object may be constructed or stored within 12 inches of any sprinkler head or HVAC vent. *Construction of any partitions or booths requires prior written approval from management; such additions must be removed before departure and will require separate RestorationDeposit before construction. Any shelves and/or additional non-structural fixed soundproofing (second door / thickened walls) may not be removed & must be left in place when you leave (you may also leave up any soft soundproofing)*. Any replaced items (original lock/door etc) must be shown & given to Super. Read Policy before doing any improvements. You may hire a Super or a licensed contractor.
- Individual internet service is allowed provided installation does not damage premises (prior written approval required).
-2-MONTH DEPOSIT plus (pro-rated) 1stMoRent are due upon booking. Bookings not fully paid within 12h are Cancelled.
-RENT/deposits are furnished *only* at bandspacesnyc.com/RENT (DO NOT PAY USING PAYPAL APP/SITE)
-Rent (after initial payment) is *always paid on 1st* (including any prorated payments) in 1 single transaction. You may pay early but not before 19th (except 1stMoRent). Our system does not retain your payment information, nor are any reminders sent, so you will need to enter your information (CC/Paypal) each month.
-Anyone with a CC/bank card/Paypal account can make payments on your account (& you can change CC/bank card/Paypal account any time). We don't accept cash or checks. (PaymentHelp)
Rent Raises: Rent is raised every 12 months & for each new booking. Rent is generally raised 4-6%/yr depending on size, location (for New Facilities or Discounted rooms, the 1st raise or 2 will be higher), in keeping with annual building escalations.
Discounted rooms revert after 12 months to non-discounted rate or current per-sf rate per location. Rent raise notifications are sent at least 1 month prior to the rent raise date. You can avoid paying the raised amount by changing rooms or giving notice by your raise date. More on Sizes & Discounts.
MOVE-IN: Add email@example.com & spaces@ to your address book. Contact Us within 24h of your StartDate if LeavingRenter did not leave the room broom-clean per MoveOut Conditions. If you move in before your StartDate you will be charged rent per day.
IMPROVEMENTS: Alterations/shelves/additional fixed soundproofing must be left in place when you leave and no existing shelves may be removed (you may also leave up any fireproof "soft" soundproofing if you wish. Any replaced items (original lock/door etc) must be shown & given to Super. Read Policy before doing any alterations). Soft sound baffling (acoustic/eggcrate foam etc) may be affixed to walls (using adhesive spray glue) to reduce high frequency room noise.
If you give late notice, you will lose your deposit.
We require *at least* 2 months notice (or) to leave or change rooms and VacancyDate must be on the 1st. Once given, notice is not retractable. There are no refunds. Your deposit is returned to you in the form your final 2 months rent being at no charge. All keys must be returned upon MoveOut and room left broom clean and in MoveIn Condition to maintain good standing.
-Carpets etc: Unless you are otherwise notified, please remove all carpets, wall coverings etc. These may be left in place only if the incoming renter requests it.

When you give Notice, you can consent to "Leave Early" (before your VacancyDate). If you are willing to leave early and a ReplacementRenter *found by you or us* rents your room prior to the 2 months elapsing (*you must be prepared to vacate on any day, on 24h notice*), you receive a prorated DepositReturn upon request, sent within 48h after MoveOutDate (ReplacementRenter StartDate), provided you leave early per MoveOut and are in good standing and have not damaged the rooms. As we maintain waitlists, this is often the case. (Your consent to MoveOut and/or to <Leave Early> on Notice form or via email or by any other communication cannot be retracted or altered; if no EarliestDepartureDate is specified, your EarliestDepartureDate will be considered to be two full months before your VacancyDate).
If you find a ReplacementRenter (other than the LeavingRenter) for your rm you may qualify for a ReferralCredit.
-If you consent(ed) to leave before your VacancyDate ("Leave Early") on notice form or via email or by any other communication, then per Policy:
Your consent cannot be retracted. You must be prepared to moveout on 24h notice. If a ReplacementRenter *found by you or us* books CurrentRm(OldRm) before your VacancyDate you'll receive confirmation email from us. If you Leave Early per MoveOut and are in good standing you will receive DepositReturn per ReplacementRenter StartDate (rent for CurrentRm(OldRm) is increased to $EmailUs). Unless and until you receive confirmation email, your DepartureDate will remain your original VacancyDate.
Monitor your email closely & add add firstname.lastname@example.org & spaces@ to your address book. You may leave at anytime before VacancyDate but *no DepositReturn will be sent unless* your room is booked by an IncomingRenter starting at least a week before your VacancyDate.
