Note about Homestay Programs: If you wish to live with an American family, we highly recommend you apply to a homestay program directly.  For a fee, a company will match you with a pre-screened, compatible family. All of these companies have their own rules and regulations.  Applications must be submitted directly to the company and be processed before your arrival.  Payment for the application fee and security deposit is required when you submit an application.  Some of these companies require full payment in advance on the day you arrive.  Please read their information and application form carefully.  If you have questions, please contact the person listed for each agency. 

 

Usually, you will complete an apartment application form and pay an application fee.  It is normal for the landlord to require first month's rent, a refundable security deposit (minimum one month’s rent) and a cleaning deposit.  Utilities (water, gas, electricity) may or may not be included in your rent.  You may wish to rent month-to-month as opposed to leasing a unit for one year.
