When a renter takes financial responsibility for the rent payment himself or herself, then he/she is considered an individual client. These renters may work for a corporation, theater group or government entity, but their organizations are not taking financial responsibility for the lease, even though the renter may be reimbursed for their expenses.

The industry is divided into 3 products: serviced apartments; managed private residences and by owner rentals.
