The Addendum (page 1-2) is an extension of the main Lease Agreement which represents an agreement between all members in the house and LifeX, it refers to the terms agreed in the original Lease Contract which is attached at the end of the agreement. The Internal Tenant Agreement (page 3-7) is an agreement between all members in the house regarding the use of the apartment and the co-living arrangements you agree to. It identifies the room allocations (ie. ‘parts’), termination of the contract, and house rules. The Service Agreement (page 8-14) is an agreement between yourself and LifeX regarding the benefits you receive as a member such as cleaning, maintenance etc. It outlines the various services LifeX provides in Schedule 2, and the costs associated with these in Schedule 1.

Yes, you can. But please note that the total paid should match the amount stated on the invoice regardless of the currency you send money in.
Unfortunately, we do not accept partial payments. The entire amount as stated on the invoice needs to be transferred in once and before the due date.
Monthly invoices will be emailed to you as a reminder on the first day of each month and the payment should be settled by the 6th of every month, regardless of whether you have received the invoice or not.
Interest will be calculated for any unpaid and overdue invoices according to the local legislation.
If your company is paying for your stay at LifeX, or for a part of it, we have the possibility to send invoices to your contact person directly. However, you do remain personally responsible for the rental agreement and have to sign the contract in your name. The city requires you to register yourself at the address where you are living and for this, you need proof of residence in the shape of a rental contract in your name.
- If you are working for a LifeX partner company ie. if you have signed up via your company’s LifeX landing page, then this means your company is partnered with LifeX and we will already have made arrangements for how invoices should be taken care of with your hiring manager/HR. You do not need to do anything.
- If you don’t work for a LifeX partner company ie. you signed up normally through our website, but still have arrangements for your company to cover part/all of your invoices, then have your manager/HR reach out to our team on email@example.com to confirm which part the company covers for you.
