When completing your housing questionnaire, it is important for us to know as much about you as possible (such as will you have a car, or be bringing pets). This will help us to see what direction we should take in our search.
When requesting assistance for a long term stay, advance notice is always appreciated; but in order to do a true search, the client must be here and ready to put down a deposit and the first month's rent.
When requesting a room in a home or one of our furnished studios for five nights or more, we would also like as much advance notice as possible. We are able to pre-book these accommodations and will reserve them on a first-come-first served basis.
