There are many ways to get closer to a roommate agreement. Many agreements are a model and can provide you with general areas and proposed rules. Now that we have determined how many roommates there are, who they are and where they will live, it will be time to document the conditions under which they have agreed while living together. We begin with the “study periods” paragraph. Use the specified areas here to set preset periods in which a minimum of noise is not allowed. Enter the daily start time of this period in the first sentence of empty lines, then check the box titled “AM” or “PM” Use the second line sentence to record the end of this daily study period, then activate one of the boxes to note if it is morning (“AM”) or afternoon/evening (“PM”). Next, check one of the odds boxes under the words “Study hours above” to indicate whether this includes weekends (first box) or not weekends (second box). The next paragraph, which requires attention, is labeled “Sleep Time.” This paragraph discusses what roommates should agree if periods are to be noise-free or guest-free, so that any roommate who wishes to sleep during this period can do so freely. Use both lines to document the start time of this period and the time it ends.
Be sure to specify if you are in the AM or PM each time by activating the corresponding checkbox. Then check the first box under this paragraph if the period above contains weekends or the second box for the time of sleep, if the weekend is not included. In most roommate situations, each roommate has potential access to another roommate`s property. Since different individuals have different limits, it is generally a good idea to determine what those limits should be and then document them. Several statements were made in the “Personal Effects” section. Use the empty lines of the first instruction to document each item that should not be used by other roommates (z.B. “Toothbrush,” “Terry`s iPod”), the second instruction to document items that can be borrowed, as long as the owner has been consulted and agreed to lend it (i.e. “Liftlift,” “Pat`s Blender”). and the third instruction to list the items that each roommate can borrow without authorization (i.e. “Stapler,” “Pat`s Blender”), and the third instruction to list the items that each roommate can borrow without authorization (i.e.
“Stapler,” “Pat`s Blender”). Of course, if the common use of housing has common expenses. Look for the “Common Cost” paragraph, then select the “Week” or “Monthly” box to document the number of times roommates have agreed to jointly purchase the items you have declared (i.e. coffee) in the area made available. The following paragraph addresses the issue of cleaning. Document the day of the week or month when the roommates agreed that everyone would help clean the premises on the empty lines of the “CleanUp Plans” paragraph. Below, there are two checkbox instructions to choose from. If all roommates participate on this scheduled date, mark the first box to check. If a cleaning plan is assigned, check the second box and report it in the empty lines provided or as an appendix. Then look for the instruction entitled “Sex opposite.” Use the space available to document the last hour of the day at which a client of the other sex can be admitted to the site. Select “AM” or “PM” to finalize this report. During these hours, a roommate may have friends: A roommate may have friends at a time.
Contracts for roommates can take many forms and are sometimes necessary for all students living in residence.
