What type of space can I rent out?
On SpaceiShare, you can rent out your home space for storage, parking and events. For storage, typical spaces include basements, spare rooms, attics, crawl spaces, garages and sheds. For parking, you can rent out a spot inside your garage or outside on your driveway. And, for events, you can offer up any part of your house. Some ideas for event space rental include your backyard, pool, rooftop patio, kitchen, living room, games room, basement or even your entire home.
What does it cost to list my space?
Putting up listings on SpaceiShare is free so if you want to put up multiple listings, go for it! SpaceiShare charges a small service fee simply to cover merchant transactions fees.
How will SpaceiShare advertise my space?
To help build up the SpaceiShare community and to drive Renters to your listings, SpaceiShare advertises both online and offline. Advertising includes things such as internet ads, paid search, targeted emails, newsletters, social posts, blogs and flyers.
How am I protected as a Host?
When renting out your space, it is imperative that both you and the Renter complete the SpaceiShare Agreement. For storage and parking, the Agreement must be submitted to SpaceiShare within 3 days of the contract start date. And, for events, the Agreement must be sent to SpaceiShare at least 48 hours before the start of the event. The SpaceiShare Agreement was created to ensure that both Hosts and Renters are protected. SpaceiShare Assurance provides further protection for Hosts. For more information about SpaceiShare Assurance, see our
Terms & Conditions.

How much should I charge?
As the Host, you get to decide what your space is worth, but remember that one of the reasons Renters use SpaceiShare is because they are looking to save money. Typically, your price should be 30-50% less than what a Renter would pay for corporate space. If you want help setting your price, check out the
Why do I need to complete the SpaceiShare Agreement?
Completing the SpaceiShare Agreement is important because it ensures that you and the Renter are aligned on expectations of the space rental. The Agreement includes all the important details of the space rental and will allow you to clearly outline your House Rules. In addition, it verifies information and allows you to be eligible for the SpaceiShare Assurance program. Both the Host and Renter need to complete the form and send back the signed version to SpaceiShare within 3 days of the occupancy date for storage and parking or 48 hours prior to an event.
Can I decline a Renter’s request for a reservation?
As a Host, you have full control of who can rent your space. If you choose to decline a Renter’s request, you should respond promptly (within 24 hours) and ideally let the person know why the space rental won’t work out. Remember to keep your listing calendar updated on an ongoing basis to ensure you don’t get any inquiries from Renters for dates that aren’t available.
How do I cancel a reservation?
All Hosts are given a Cooling Off Period which means you have 48 hours, from the time of a Confirmed Booking, to cancel a reservation. If you decide to cancel a Confirmed Booking outside of the Cooling Off Period, either before or after the Renter’s Occupancy Start Date, you must provide 4 weeks’ notice in writing to the Renter. For more information on SpaceiShare’s cancellation policy, see our Terms & Conditions. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to us at
What do I do if a Renter damages my property?
If a Renter causes damage to your property, the Renter is 100% responsible. For additional protection, we strongly recommend you purchase or review your homeowners or renter’s insurance to ensure you have suitable coverage. For more information, please review our
Terms & Conditions.
What should you do if you have issues with a Renter?
To avoid potential issues with Renters, make sure the SpaceiShare Agreement is completed by both parties and you have open communication with your Renter. If any issues do arise, it is best for you to try and resolve the problem directly with the Renter. Remember, SpaceiShare is a community, so don’t be afraid to talk through issues with your fellow community members. If you are having difficulties settling an issue with a Renter, please contact us at
Do I need insurance?
As a Host, if you damage a Renter’s property, you are responsible. We strongly recommend you purchase or review your homeowners or renter’s insurance to ensure you have suitable coverage. SpaceiShare Assurance was created to provide both Renters and Hosts protection and peace of mind, but it is not an insurance policy. SpaceiShare Assurance only comes into effect once all insurance policy options have been exhausted on both the Host and Renter side.
I’m selling my home; what notice should I give the Renter?
As a courtesy to your Renter, you should give them as much notice as possible. For storage and parking, the minimum amount of notice you should give your Renter is 4 weeks. For events space, you should try to honour your commitment. After all, the Renter has chosen your location to host an event, and changing venues can be very difficult. If you absolutely won’t be in your home on the date of the event, you need to notify the Renter immediately.
I now need the space for my own stuff, how do I cancel our agreement?
If you decide that you need your space back and want to cancel your agreement with a Renter, you must give the Renter 4 week notice so they can remove their belongings and find an alternative location. If the Renter is unable to collect their belongings in that time frame, please contact us at
to find a solution.
What if the Renter only needs ½ my space? Can I put up another listing?
Absolutely! As it is free to list your space, simply create a new listing with the price for half the space.
