Frequently Asked Questions
If smoking will not be allowed in the residence, consider acceptable smoking areas for residents or guests who do smoke (e.g. on the balcony, on the porch, in the back garden).

What if, when smoking outside, the smoke drifts inside and leaves a smell in the residence anyway? What if the smoking area becomes crowded and makes it difficult for people to enter or exit the residence? Consider potential difficulties in advance where possible.
Flatmates may wish to consider:
- What is considered a "party" and what is an informal gathering? If a flatmate brings a couple of friends over late at night and they drink for a couple of hours, is it considered a party? Should it be allowed?
- When are parties allowed (e.g. anytime, weekends only) and what arrangements must be made in advance with other flatmates?
- Is there an established guest list for the party/gathering?
- Who will clean up after the party and when should the cleanup be completed?
Decide before you move in when the "quiet hours" will be — at what time will the TV and stereo have to be turned down (e.g. 10 p.m. weeknights; midnight on weekends)? Also, decide on a time for quiet hours to end in the morning (e.g. 8 a.m. weekdays; 10 a.m. weekends).Flatmates may wish to consider:
- If allowed to stay over, where will guests sleep?
- How much notice is needed before a guest stays overnight?
- How do you reserve common areas such as the living room couch?
- How many nights of sleepover is too long a stay?
- How should flatmates address unwanted guests?
- Do the other flatmates have the right to request that the host only see unwanted guests outside of the property?
Flatmates may wish to consider:
- Can personal items such as stereos, TVs, kitchen equipment, bikes, and motor vehicles be shared?
- Can flatmates borrow each other's clothes, books, CDs, etc? Must they get permission each time?
