1. To book a room, you must sign a contract. Once you receive the contract, you have 48 hours to review and sign it. If we don't hear back from you during that time, we will cancel the contract and the room will become available for other applicants.
2. Membership starts on the date specified in the contract and is not based on the arrival date.
3. The booking process is complete once you sign the contract, make the first payment (first month of rent), and send the payment confirmation before the move-in date. You will receive the first invoice within 5 days of signing the contract.
The minimum rental period is three months. For instance, if your stay begins on April 1st, the minimum rental period ends on June 30th.
Under Section II B - Duration it says that the contract is for one year, but you can stay as long as you want. It is a legal obligation in France that furnished apartment contracts have a max 1-year duration. That said, we tacitly renew the contract if you stay for more than one year upon the expiry date for a duration of one year under the same terms and conditions.
You may terminate your contract at any time with one running month's notice. Our contracts always end on the last day of the month. For example, if you terminate your contract on May 31st, your lease will end on June 30th. If you terminate your contract on June 4th, your lease will end on July 31st.
Yes, our contracts our always open-ended and you still need to terminate your contract in the LifeX app to confirm your end date. Please be aware that if your stay does not have an end date in the LifeX app, your contract has not yet been terminated and our termination policies as mentioned above/below apply.
Your contract consists of two parts - FURNISHED COHOUSING CONTRACT (pages 1-24) and SERVICE DELIVERY CONTRACT (pages 25-37). Your rent is outlined in Section III. - FINANCIAL CONDITIONS of FURNISHED COHOUSING CONTRACT. Your service charge is outlined in Section IV. - PAYMENT of SERVICE DELIVERY CONTRACT. Your total rent is the sum of the rent and service charge.

You are signing both the Furnished Cohousing Contract (pages 1-24) and Service Delivery Contract (pages 25-37) as they are integral components of the LifeX experience.

These two contracts together ensure a seamless co-housing experience in line with the LifeX concept.
