How can I submit feedback on a potential housemate?

Alcove takes into account the feedback of current housemates whenever a new applicant applies for an open bedroom in the home.

Whenever an applicant applies for an available bedroom in an Alcove home and is approved by the property manager, the current housemates are sent an email from the sales team requesting feedback on the applicant. Current housemates are asked fill out our housemate feedback form with constructive feedback to within 24 hours before the applicant can proceed with signing a lease. All applicant information can be found on a housemate's Alcove portal here.

If the sales team receives substantial negative feedback within the 24 hour time frame about an applicant from the current housemates, the applicant will be redirected to another Alcove home or out of the Alcove community altogether. Any feedback received outside of the 24 hour window may not be considered, all housemates are encourage to check the settings on their personal email so feedback emails are not missed.

Below are examples of housemate feedback that will not be accepted:

  • Differences in age
  • Not liking and/or agreeing with listed interests
  • Disapproving of a pet in a pet friendly home. For info on approval of ESA or Service Animals, please see our FAQ page
  • Un-preferred gender in a co-ed home

Alcove cannot discriminate against  applicants based on certain protected characteristics such as race, color, religion, national origin, sex, familial status, or disability. This is mandated by various federal, state, and local laws such as the Fair Housing Act, which prohibits discrimination in the sale, rental, and financing of housing based on these protected characteristics.
