Other things to note
The building has only one elevator. The elevator does NOT have automatic doors; hence, you will need to open and close them manually. It is extremely that guests close BOTH sliding doors; that way anyone calling the elevator will be able to use it.
Avoid meetings in the elevator, landing areas, building entrance. Keep in mind that this is a residential building, and respect them by prioritizing the elevator use and common areas.
The elevator can only take 3 people at a time. Avoid by all means being more. Make two trips if necessary and follow the instructions.
Always be courteous with the doorman and other residents.
Never open the door to unknown people; the building door is the first door to your Buenos Aires apartment.
The apartment has a boiler that controls the hot water temperature - it is normally set up at the right level. It hardly needs adjustments.
The AC remote control is in English, yet the temperatures are shown in Celsius.
The internet network and key will be provided upon check in.
Please, keep in mind that Argentina uses 220 volts. You will find adapters for US equipment in the apartment; yet, NO converters inside the apartment. Most computers and Smartphones/i-Phones do have a built-in converter that reads 100-240 volts.
Lessee further agrees to abide by the terms and policies as outlined on Addendum A to this contract. Any breach of this rental agreement and addendum may result in forfeiture of all rental payments made by Lessee or Lessee's Guests (including deposits, rental fees, etc.) as liquidated damages, and/or eviction from the premises, at Lessor's discretion.
REFUND OF SECURITY DEPOSIT and CHECK-OUT REQUIREMENTS: On the last day of this lease term, Lessee shall surrender the premises to Lessor, including appurtenances and every part thereof, in good condition and in the manner in which they were received, including household furniture, fixtures, goods and chattels belonging to the Lessor, and shall agree to pay for all breakage, loss, and/or damage, with the exception of ordinary wear and tear. If the home is left in a condition that takes longer than 5 hours to clean, or, if any of the following are encountered: excessive accumulation of garbage, staining of sheets and towels requiring extraordinary laundering efforts/or replacement, furnishings re-arranged, etc., our costs and expenses for additional labor and time to remedy these situations will be deducted from your security deposit.
HOUSE RULES: Lessee and their guests shall abide by these rules: No smoking anywhere on the property. No pets/animals of any kind shall be permitted in or upon the premises.

A charge for excessive energy consumption will apply.
REPAIRS & MAINTENANCE: Lessee shall notify Lessor of items needing maintenance or repair at the earliest convenience, rather than at the end of the stay, so that problems may be remedied promptly.
