When will I receive the initial invoice and when is it due?
Within 5 days from the date of contract signature. The invoice is due 6 working days upon receiving.
What does the initial invoice include?
Prepayment for the last month's rent*
*Note: This covers your final month in LifeX and not your first or second month's rent.
Note: Some cities do not require a prepaid last month's rent. Please contact the support team through the app in order to verify if this applies to you.
The initial invoices must always be settled and proof of payment sent before the due date and before the contract start date. Otherwise, you might lose the right to the room. Without proof of payment, there will be no key handover. For further information, please refer to this article.
When do I pay my first month of rent?
Your first month's invoice will arrive the day your contract starts. The rent may be pro-rated in case your contract is not starting on the 1st of the month. In other words, if your contract starts on the 15th, then your first month's rent will include the remaining 15 days of the month.
What payment methods are acceptable to use?
Bank transfers both local and international;
Money transfers using TransferWise, Monzo, The Currency Cloud etc.
Credit Card Payments
Where should I pay my invoice to?
Invoices should be paid into the bank account specified on the invoice that you receive from LifeX. The total paid should match the amount stated on the invoice regardless of the currency you send money in.

Is there anything I should keep in mind when making the transfer?
