Arizona's Premier Homestay
Host Legal Responsibilities and Liabilities:
Hosting international students and scholars is a great way to stay home and make friends from all around the world. The host application process includes an application, a criminal record check for all household members over 18, personal references, and a home visit and interview.
Homestay is not a rental agreement. Its purpose is to include international students (homestay guests) in your life for the purposes of helping them learn English and experience American culture. Hosts must be excited about this mission. If you are strictly looking for a roommate to supplement your income, then hosting may not be for you.
Hosts provide each homestay guest with the following:
Hosts must complete our application, interview and have a home visit. A criminal background check will be performed for anyone over the age of 18 that lives in the home.
Arizona Homestay will place the student and collect the first months fees from the student(s), and in turn, pay the host less the background check fee and monthly management fee to Arizona Homestay. Thereafter, the host will collect the monthly fee directly from the student(s) after the first 4 weeks. Arizona Homestay is available for support throughout the stay of the student(s).
Hosts will be generously compensated for their hospitality and are responsible for paying a $40 monthly management fee per student to Arizona Homestay LLC each month. Hosts will receive an electronic invoice monthly and any subsequent months that the student is actively paying the host. Invoices are payable upon receipt or host will no longer be allowed to have students placed through Arizona Homestay.
