Environmental Residence And Hotel

For People With Multiple Chemical Sensitivities (MCS)

Conditions For Extended Stay

1. There is a 3-month trial period. This is to make sure that the prospective extended stay guest understands the Quality Assurance Agreements, and has no problems keeping them.

2. The prospective extended stay guest pays regular hotel rates, including taxes and security during the 3-month trial period. As a hotel guest $300 breakage security is all that is required because your time of departure is known and the apartment can be re-rented in advance. As a prospective long term guest your time of departure is uncertain. Therefore a 30-day notice security deposit, amounting to one months rent is also required. Initial payment is as follows:

  • First two months plus the 30-day security deposit in advance.

    3. The guest may commit for only one month if they are unsure, but risk unavailability if they then decide to stay.

    4. At the end of the three month trial period, if everything works out, a six months plus one day, or one-year agreement will be entered into starting from the start of the occupancy. This allows us to not have to charge the 11% tax. The taxes and breakage security deposit paid as a hotel guest will go towards the one month security and last months payment required to be paid in advance as an extended stay guest.

    5. When the extended stay agreement is signed, the payments will be reduced to the yearly monthly rate from the 4th month on, guest will be presented with a monthly electric bill and linen will no longer be provided except for barrier clothe covers and mattress pads.

    6. When a six-month stay is entered into, the payments will be reduced to the 6-month rate. Electric, and linen will still be provided.

    7. One month’s security will be held back and returned within 45 days of the end of the stay. Security and last months payment will be forfeited if the tenant leaves before the end of the agreed upon time period or if 30 days notice is not given.

    8. The extended stay guest must not bring a lot of things from home. It has been our experience that those things, plus the additional clutter, make our safe space less safe and can affect the other guests.

    These things include, but are not exclusive to:

  • Books, magazines, newspaper, any printed and/or paper products.
  • Audio and video tapes.
  • New electronic devices.
  • Any clothing that has ever been washed in scented detergent and especially scented fabric softeners, even if they have been washed in unscented detergent afterwards, or moldy smelling clothing.
  • Scent of any kind, even natural and organic.
  • Fabric, such as quilts, curtains, wall hangings, bedspreads, rugs, etc. New have fire retardant and fungicides and old can be moldy or scented from where they have been, as well as harbor dust mites.

    Large popcorn tins are recommended for storing some of the above items that you may want to bring as well as B vitamins, and other supplements and/or medications you are taking that have an odor.
