FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Your ownership of a TAARD guest apartment is flexible, and it is not for a specific duration or period. You have the freedom to possess it for as long as you wish if you adhere to the terms of our agreement, including fulfilling the requisite time needed to lease the same to offset its financial acquisition cost. Furthermore, should you decide to sell your guest apartment, the same can only be sold and transferred to an entity that seeks to use it for its designated purpose of promoting TAARD’s stated mission. Nevertheless, the ownership agreement to be signed with you allows TAARD the “right of first refusal” in the event of a sale.

As such, the ownership agreement to be signed with you seeks to prevent and/or effectively manage such conflicts of interest, especially when the overarching interest of the organization you seek to enter an agreement with erodes the exclusive and unique nature of our offer and negatively impacts the potential income to be derived from TAARD’s operations.
