(Current renters: Use a *different email* as your primary email address for the new rm - all other info may remain the same; you can use old rm's Secondary Email as the Primary of new rm & vice versa).
Placeholder Info: A Placeholder is a half-deposit, in the amount of 1 month's rent, reserving the next available room in your chosen rate & size & location. When your selected size/location becomes available, you receive email notification. You'll have 48h to convert your Placeholder to a New Room Booking. Your Placeholder may be any amount; however you will only receive priority access to rooms whose rate is equal to or less than your Placeholder. (Should your Placeholder exceed the monthly rate of the available room, you'll receive credit towards 1st months rent). Your Placeholder is refundable any time prior to placing New Room Booking.
Deposit Info: Your 2-Month Deposit is paid upon Booking and is returned to you at the end of your stay in the form of your final 2 months rent being free provided you are in good standing. We require at least 2 months Notice, with VacancyDate on the 1st. When you give Notice, you can consent to Leave Early (before your VacancyDate). If you consent to leave early and a renter rents your room before the 2 months elapsing, you can receive a prorated DepositReturn. As we maintain waitlists, this is often the case.
