Help for 'rent'

RENT

On Sindome, if you want a safe place for your character to sleep, you'll probably want to rent an apartment. There are apartment buildings scattered throughout the city. Sleeping in a safe location is the best way to safeguard your character and their belongings. Sleep on the street or in hideyholes at your own risk!

CUBES

Cubes are rented by using a kiosk in the lobby to rent the cube for 1 or more days. These are typically less expensive than apartments.

APARTMENTS

Apartments are typically (though not always) rented by finding an apartment building, entering the building, and finding a specific unit you wish to rent. Each apartment has a door facing a hallway.

Apartments are typically rented on a weekly basis.

'check ' on an apartment door to see if it is VACANT.

'rent ' to rent the apartment. You will provide a weeks rent, and set a code for the door. THIS ALONE MAKES YOU THE RENTER.

'payrent ' to pay your apartment rent. If you fail to pay your rent you will not be able to access your apartment. There is a grace period of a few days in which you can pay your back-rent and gain access to your apartment. However, if you fail to pay your back-rent for too long, all of your belongings will be liquidated, and if you are in the apartment, you'll wake up in a city sleeping coffin or on the street.

'push on ' to unlock your apartment from the outside.

'open ' to open the door

'' to enter the apartment.

'close ' to close the door.

'lock ' to lock the door.

'push on to unlock your apartment from the inside

Many apartment doors automatically lock when you close them but not all. Be sure to check your door to be sure. You might have to manually lock it with 'lock '. Use 'help door' for more information.

THE RENTER

The IC world actually cares who THE RENTER is. This comes into play in various ways that are best discovered ICly but it is important to remember that if you are not THE RENTER then you don't have all the rights, privileges and assurances that you might think you have.

PAYING THE RENT OR HAVING THE MASTER CODE TO AN APARTMENT DOES NOT MAKE YOU THE RENTER. BEING THE ONE WHO ACTUALLY RENTED IT DOES.

MEMBERSHIP PADS

More information on this specific type of living situation can be found with 'help membership'.

TRANSFERRING AN APARTMENT

If your character wants to exchange apartments with another character they will need to take IC action to make it happen. This means each character needs ICly contacting the manager responsible for their apartment and convincing them to make the other character the new owner. This will almost always require a favor or fee and, as this is an RP required scenario, you could be denied for IC reasons.

NON-MEMBERSHIP RENT AND WEEKLY EARNINGS

There is a weekly earnings cap for automated jobs like crate runs, working a factory, selling items to NPCs, and coded jobs where an NPC pays you or you are paid by an employment terminal. If you are a non-member, any money you spend on rent for a cube or on an apartment YOU rent (you cannot get this benefit paying the rent for an apartment you are not the official renter on) will act as an offset on your weekly earnings cap, allowing you to earn that money back. This only applies to non-members, and is a way of evening the scales since members do not need to spend time earning money for rent.

WARNING

It is not acceptable to ICly tell someone they should pay their rent before going to do an automated job. It's not dissimilar to telling someone to 'raise your strength' if they keep failing to get out of a grapple instead of explaining it in a more IC manner. If someone is unfamiliar with how the rent & automated income system works in relation to paying rent and having it increase the weekly earnings you can make (for those who haven't donate), point them to the help file on local OOC and leave it at that.
