We save you money by controlling all housing-related expenses and streamlining the invoice process. We provide the most cost-effective property by first determining the type of temporary housing that best fits the given situation. We then locate all available properties that meet these criteria to develop the most cost-effective housing solution. We keep expenses low by shopping among all available options, leveraging relationships with property owners, and being adept at negotiating short-term residential leases. We also provide significant savings on furniture, housewares, and appliance rental costs by passing along the savings that we have negotiated with most nationwide and regional rental companies.

We make it our goal to contact the policyholder within minutes of your request. We typically locate properties within one day and make them available for viewing by the insured at their earliest convenience. Upon approval of a property by you and your insured, we set a move-in date. Furnished corporate suites are usually available for immediate occupancy. Properties that we furnish take several days to prepare. Trailers typically take 7-14 days to deliver, set-up, and furnish. While we are arranging for suitable long-term housing, we can arrange for direct billing of hotel charges for room and taxes.
Immediately after you contact us with your housing request, we contact your insured. We locate housing, negotiate a lease, obtain your approval on the rate, coordinate the showing of the property, and all paperwork. We facilitate the move-in and set up of furniture, housewares, and appliances. We handle any issues that arise and monitor the policyholder’s need throughout their temporary stay.
ALE bills upfront for the duration of the stay. The invoice will list each month on separate line items. The security deposit, if any, will be listed separately. Any extensions will be billed as they are incurred.
The policyholder will need to sign the residential lease as presented by the property owner. The policyholder will also be expected to sign a housing agreement with ALE Solutions if they agree to accept a property we are providing. The agreement outlines the responsibilities of both parties and gives authorization for housing related insurance payments to be paid directly to ALE Solutions.
All our leases are negotiated with a 30-day move-out/extension notice provision. We will contact you in writing and by phone 45 days prior to the end of the lease so that you will have sufficient time to determine if the lease should be ended or extended. It is important that a notice is sent out on time so that additional charges are not incurred.
When requested, we will coordinate utility connections and transfers.
We accommodate domestic pets in most of our placements. Often the landlord charges a pet fee in the form of a non-refundable deposit.
Yes, we accommodate solutions for policyholders with special needs. Upon initial contact with the policyholder, we will ask about any special requirements of the family. Most hoteliers offer handicap accessible rooms with first-floor access.
Accurately estimating the length of stay helps to control costs. It is important not to significantly underestimate the length of stay needed. For example, it is more expensive to ask for a three-month stay with (3) one-month extensions than requesting a six-month stay from the outset. Property owners become more receptive to short-term rentals and lease prices tend to decrease with longer lease commitments.
ALE stays informed of all Federal, State, County and City tax-exempt policies and credits taxes according to the laws.
Our experienced relocation specialists utilize a number of tools and techniques for finding all available properties that suit the specific needs of the family. Among our resources are an exclusive nationwide database of properties and a custom search engine for locating listed properties. Many available properties are not listed and are found by following an exhaustive manual search protocol.
Each property is furnished to suit the specific needs of the family. Our furniture packages come in several levels of quality to suit the family’s lifestyle. Specific requests can be accommodated from home offices to special needs furnishings.
The optimum property is one that meets the expectations of your insured while remaining within your budget and policy provisions.
