Do I have to sign a long-term lease and do you pro-rate Rent? All of our leases are month-to-month. We pro-rate rent when you are moving in. For example, if you move in on the 28th of the month, you will only pay for two days that month. However, we do not pro-rate out. If you are using the unit on the first of the month, you are required to pay for the entire month, so make your move out plans with this in mind.
