A. Procedures and Safety
The renter must arrive on time; time will not be extended for tardiness. Renter must vacate their space on time to accommodate the next Renter.
There will be an overtime fee assessed if the Renter stays beyond the booked time. The renter may add time to bookings subject to availability by making a new booking online up until the desired start time of the booking.
It is the Renter’s responsibility to set up and return to the original place all equipment used during the allotted time, including chairs, music stands, tables, musical equipment, etc. Please do not remove music stands and/or chairs from rooms without prior consent from Management. It is the Client’s responsibility to turn off any lights and/or equipment when leaving a room empty.
All doors must be kept closed when rooms are in use.
All studios must be kept clean and free of debris. All trash and recyclables should be placed in appropriate receptacles throughout the space.
Common areas (hallways, waiting areas, bathrooms) are to be kept quiet, clean and clear of personal belongings. These spaces must NOT be used for loud conversations, warming up or rehearsing.
Do not leave personal belongings in studios and make sure you have all your personal belongings when leaving the space. Somerville Music Spaces, LLC is not responsible for any personal belongings left on the premises.
All pianos and percussion instruments must be treated with respect. No food, drinks, purses, backpacks, clothing, etc. are to be placed on pianos or percussion instruments. The renter will be held responsible if damage occurs to any property or instrument belonging to Somerville Music Spaces during their reserved time.

Management reserves the right to move Renters to a space of equal or greater size with the same equipment without prior notice.
The individual or company that makes a booking on behalf of a group will be held responsible for the behaviour of the entire group. Please ensure all members of your group and/or your clients are aware of these policies.

After scheduling a booking, Renters will receive an invoice to be paid immediately upon receipt. Renters will not be given access to the Spaces until payment has been received.
C. Remote Access System
We use a cloud-based remote access system called Kisi in order to reduce the need for full-time staff members on-site. This helps us keep our rental rates affordable. Regular users of the space may be asked to download the free Kisi app in order to facilitate frequent access. Infrequent and one-time users will be sent a one-time access pass through e-mail.
Access to the space will be granted for a period of 10 minutes before the reservation start time until 10 minutes after the reservation end time unless otherwise specified.
Renters are NOT permitted to share this access pass with others or let others without reservations enter the space unless they are a guest of the Renter.
Abuse of this system will require us to raise our rates in order to be able to have a full-time employee on-premises.
The renter may NOT prop open locked doors at any time. If Renter is holding an event that necessitates an exterior door be unlocked, the Renter MUST pay $20/hr for a staff member to be onsite for the duration of the booking.
If, for any reason, the Kisi system is disabled and Renter cannot gain access to the space, the booking will be reimbursed in full within 48 hrs.
