Lease openings and landlords are integral to Isla Vista living. With a high demand from students, IV landlords have the ability to choose the time and price at which leases opens. Students are therefore forced to adhere to the artificial deadlines created by leasing companies. 

Most leasing companies, including the largest ones like St. George & Associates, Playa Life IV, and Wolfe & Associates, opened their 2020-2021 leases in October of 2019, forcing students to commit to binding documents and thousands of dollars in security deposits months before they can even move in. 

For most students, this causes an unnecessary intense amount of stress and anxiety, especially for UCSB Freshman who just moved into Isla Vista less than a month prior. With the unpredictable nature of student life (i.e. decisions to study abroad, roomate fall outs, etc), expecting residents to sign leases this early causes a large amount stress and regret.

The Solution: If all leasing companies could agree to open leases closer to June 2020, students could make more informed decisions, leading to less stress over housing.
