The duration of the initial lease is for six months from the effective date of your lease. The Fuller Housing Lease is a Legally Binding Document. If you break the six-month term of the lease agreement, you will be charged rent for the entire six-month period, regardless if you have not moved in or have already moved out of the apartment or even if you no longer attend Fuller Seminary.

After six months, the lease will be automatically extended month-to-month as long as you pay your rent and remain eligible as defined above. To terminate the lease, you will need to give written notification 30 days in advance by completing a "30-Day Notice Form," available at the House office.
