Just a little bit of mutual respect. I will give you a clean & tidy flat and in return, I would hope due from you. This is a residential house. Come in quietly if you are out late, but feel free to come and go whenever you want. No smoking inside, however, smoking in front and back garden permitted. No guests to be permitted in house without prior consent.
Please take care of the keys given to you at the start of your stay. If a key is lost, the cost of replacing lock barrels and keys cut to suit is £350. In order that the safety and security of my guests is maintained a loss of a key will mean a forfeiture of Deposit to cover cost of lock barrel replacement.

Hi there, I am an Australian, who stopped off for a week in London after travelling and stayed 15 Years! I work as a Handyman, so decided to buy the flat you see at auction, and use all my experience to make the most comfortable place I could from the delapidated old wreck that it was. I had a flatmate for 6 years, who loved the place and is still a good friend, but decided it could be interesting to try something different and meet people from around the world.
