Setting up your Custom House Rules

Last updated August 28, 2023

To help us ensure the happiness and safety of the entire PadSplit community, all Members are required to adhere to the Membership Rules. Violations of these rules are subject to the Member Behavior Management system.

Hosts will now have the ability to add and customize certain rules for their properties.

How do I set custom rules for my property?

In the house manual section of your property profile, you’ll find “House Rules”. If you have never edited the rules, you’ll see PadSplit’s default editable rules:

  • No animals except approved service animals
  • No kitchen appliances in bedrooms
  • Due to the nature of co-living, no guests are allowed
  • Quiet time is observed from 11 pm to 9 am
  • No outside furniture is allowed

Hosts can choose to deselect any of these rules, which will allow that action for Members. If a host chooses to allow guests, they have the option to still disallow overnight guests.

In addition to these optional, preset rules, hosts are able to write their own rules for the property. Please limit these to rules you will actually enforce, and think carefully about what the rule is adding to the Member experience. Rules should adhere to PadSplit’s non-discrimination policy.

Members will see all rules on the property listing page before booking, during booking and on their Member profile.
