Q. I don't know how long I will need the apartment;
can I rent on a month-to-month basis?
A. Yes. It is our
policy that your temporary corporate apartment shall remain yours until you
notify us that you do not need it any longer. Unlike other interim housing
providers, we will NOT re-rent your temporary corporate apartment (forcing
you to move, temporarily, again!) prior to your approval. We require a
minimum of 30 days written (email or fax) notice of your future intention to
end your lease term. We even can provide you with a form letter!
Q. Oops I miscalculated! What do I do if I need to
stay beyond my initial lease term?
A. It's simple. Just give
us notice, 30 days prior to your lease expiration date. Then we can continue
on a month-to-month basis (see previous answer).

short term rentals?
A. The one month's rent + security
deposit. Also see Rates
