Deposit and Membership Fee

What Deposit do I need to pay?

Your deposit is 5 weeks of rent and will need to be paid prior to your move in. Your deposit is protected in escrow by DPS, the Deposit Protection Service

Why do I need to apply to be a member?

Anyone can find some random people to call housemates and four walls to stick a poster on. 

However, we're more than just a home and services that make your life easy. Being part of Lyvly means you actually want to connect with and help others.

We want to welcome members who are committed, can add value and want to build community. We're not for people who are just looking for a room or who are too busy to make time for each other.

Please be mindful of this when applying and keep living it when you join. Other members will hold you to account.
