RENTAL AGREEMENT TERMS

1. TERM: The term of this Agreement shall commence as of the date first above written and shall continue on a month-to-month tenancy until terminated. All terms and conditions of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect regardless of any such rental increase.

2. RENT:
Tenant agrees to pay rent in the sum of the total amount of rental units selected below













Please note, all options above are not available at all times. We will notify you immediately if your choice is not available.

per month, payable in advance by close of business on the LAST DAY of each and every rental month to Lessor, or Lessor’s designated agent without deduction, prior notice, demand or billing statement, in the amount set forth herein, with the initial monthly rent due upon time of signing of this Agreement. Tenant agrees to pay rent by credit or debit card with automatic debit on the 20th of each month prior to the month of use. In addition, costs incurred by Lessor by reason of Tenant’s breach of any provision of this Agreement shall be deemed additional rent, and may be: (a) demanded by Lessor of Tenant at any time, (b) withheld from Tenant’s deposit, or (c) waived, all at Lessor’s sole discretion. Lessor may change the monthly rental rate at any time by giving Tenant written notice at Tenant’s last known address at least thirty days prior to the effective date of the new rent. If Tenant has made advanced rental payments the new rent will be charged against such payments, effective upon notice. Tenant shall not be entitled to a refund of the first full month’s rent for any reason. Tenant shall not be entitled to a refund of any portion of rent for the month rental period in which the rental agreement ends. Close of business is 5:00 p.m. weekdays only, and not holidays or Saturday or Sunday. All leases will be charged for a minimum of two months, with a thirty (30) day vacancy notice required.

3. LATE CHARGES, FEES AND DEPOSITS: Payments are first applied to late charges and fees and then to rent.
(a) Late Charge $25.00 if rent is not paid within 10 days of the monthly due date. Rent paid more than 20 days late causes Lessor to incur damages (such as extra administrative time) which are extremely difficult to measure. The late charges are additional rent and accrue without notice. The late charges will be automatically debited from the credit card or debit card on file.

(b) Security Deposit:
Tenant will pay in advance a security deposit equal to the first months rent as marked above to secure Tenant’s faithful performance of all terms of this Agreement. Upon surrender of the Leased Space to Lessor, the security deposit will be mailed to Tenant at the address in the application, or such other address as provided to Lessor with Tenant’s notice of termination, within 30 days after the end of Tenant’s rental month.

Tenant understands and agrees:

(i) Lessor need not segregate this deposit from other funds.

(ii) No interest will be due for the period of time during which the deposit is held.

(iii) At Lessor’s sole option, after the Tenant relinquishes abandons or otherwise loses possession of the Leased Space, amounts may be deducted from the security deposit to compensate Lessor for rent, cleaning, repairing, preparing the Leased Space for rental to others, or any other charges due and unpaid under this Agreement.

(c) Returned Check Fee/Failed Automatic Debit Fee: Tenant will be immediately notified by phone, email, and mail for failed credit and debit card debits. Tenant must provide updated information for automatic billing by the last day of the month to avoid late fees as outlined above. $30.00 late fee for each returned check.
