Frequently Asked Questions

What is Cios?

Cios is a platform that allows you to move out early without breaking your lease. We help renters like you move to take new jobs, move in with their significant other, and close their dream homes without remaining responsible for thousands of dollars of rent.

How does Cios Work?

The Cios platform connects you with a replacement renter if you move out early. In many states, this is a legal requirement regardless if you want to terminate your lease early.

To make the hand-off easy and stress-free, you can submit your initial request, keep tabs on progress, and check-out online from the comfort of your phone.

What do I have to pay for Cios?

There are no upfront fees to use Cios. We charge a simple 15% service fee per month for each month remaining on your lease to cover the costs of managing the lease termination process.

For example, if you had 5 months remaining on a $1100 per month lease, you would be charged $165 per month for 5 months after moving out — a savings of 75% and dozens of hours of your time compared to the typical lease break penalty of 3 months rent.

What is the typical penalty for breaking my lease?

Without Cios, a typical penalty for breaking an apartment lease could be anything from 2 months of rent to the entire remainder of the contract in one payment. In some states, leaving an apartment lease with no forewarning and reason could face a lawsuit and additional legal fees.

We estimate that most property managers across the US charge 3 months rent on average for breaking an apartment lease due to early termination.

Do I get my original deposit back?

Yes, you will receive your original deposit back through Cios after your replacement renter has paid their deposit through our platform.
