5. RULES. Make sure in your studio description you include any and all rules you have in order for rentees to know how your space operates. Examples: No food or drink, no smoking, parking instructions etc. Limit your risk of having misunderstandings or altercations with unruly rentees.
6. SET UP AND BREAK DOWN. Setting up and breaking down of music equipment can take some time. Be sure to remind the rentee to manage there time accordingly. It's a good idea to have a 30min break in between scheduled sessions to account for any delays or clean up.
