- HVAC ductwork is acoustically lined to reduce sound transmission but is not separated nor individual
- Renters may add sound baffling/foam/wall treatment or structural soundproofing (2nd door etc) as necessary. (must be fireproof)

A Placeholder is a half-deposit, in the amount of 1 month's rent, reserving the next available room in your selected size & location. When your selected size/location becomes available, you receive email notification of the room's details & StartDate (may be 1st or the 15th). You'll have 24h to complete your deposit by placing a second (final) months rent. Rent commences as of StartDate. Your 2-month deposit (1 month of which is your Placeholder) will be returned to you at the end of your stay, in the form of your final 2 months rent being free. If you decide for any reason to not take the room, your Placeholder will *not* be refunded except:
a) If we (or you) find a ReplacementRenter to take the room (in which case you will receive a refund in the amount of your Placeholder minus $50 fee)
b) If no room opens in the size and with the same (or less) monthly rent for which you have submitted a Placeholder within 3 months of submitting your Placeholder; in this case, your Placeholder is refunded in full.
