Monthly rent





(For example: If the rate of the room is $600 and two adults share the room as a double room, then each person's rent will be ($600+$150)/2 = $375 each. Or, if a parent is sharing a room with their child, they will pay an additional $100 or $150 depending on the age of their child.)

3.4.6. Changing from single to double: The house may authorize a person to change from a double to a single when:

3.4.7. Rules for doubles: Persons with double contracts must accept roommates. They must make every effort to cooperate and make the living arrangement work for both persons. Unacceptable behavior is grounds for eviction. Examples of unacceptable behavior are:

3.4.8. Living as a single with a double contract: The only time a person may live as a single and pay double rates is if the house ends up with and odd number of double contracts.


[Note: The above rules were likely taken from 21st St Co-op, from which Sasona spawned, and which has rooms that are always doubles, and the co-op assigns people to live in doubles together. Early on, Sasona stopped having rooms that are always doubles, and has never assigned strangers to live together in a room. So the rules don't make a lot of sense for Sasona at this point. - parker, Treasurer, March 2010.
