A safe bet is to assume that areas pictured on each listing are available for your production and spaces that are not included are not. When it comes to communal and public spaces like lobbies, elevators, hallways, rooftops, pools or gyms, we encourage you to reach out to the location owner through their listing and find out what is accessible to you.
Most homeowners will be able to tell you right away what is allowed and not allowed, and if they aren’t sure you’re welcome to inquire that they ask their landlord or building superintendent for you. You are also welcome to speak with their building management directly as long as the homeowner gives you permission and contact information. Do not book a viewing until you know for sure that the space is accessible to you, and that you would be able to meet with the appropriate person in charge.
