Match Search

We search for a successful match based on your application and personal preferences.

Agreement includes the lease as well as expectations regarding lifestyle and communication.

 

This agreement will be used for the 1-month trial period.

After the trial period, the Living Together Agreement is revised, and a new, long-term agreement is signed.
