ADVANCED RESERVATIONS - "EXPLAINED "

Our software works in the "present time", so when you rent a unit
in advance it charges out your card now to hold your unit. 
This is most often the case for students since full pre pay is required.
However, it is understood that the payment will be applied to the future 
reservation period.*  I will send you email confirmation of "actual" rental 
period. Reservations / Rentals are non-prorated and non-refundable. 
* Example: applied to May-Aug (4mos) or study abroad term  (8mos) 
   of May-Jan or Dec-Aug.        Questions, please call me.
NON STUDENT : The above does not generally  affect you. 
Rentals are month to month/ pro ration  of 1st mo. is upon move in,   
( ex:if you rent after the 1st).  I will work with you, 30+ years of ownership..
