Moreover, we will confirm the dates on which rent is due by e-mail. If rent is not paid by the required date tenants will be charged an additional £3 per day late.
A mandatory deposit of £170 is required. For single rooms, the required deposit is 2 weeks in advance.

4. ILLEGAL DRUGS
The use of illegal drugs is absolutely prohibited. If any tenant is caught using any illegal substance we will report it to the police and the tenant will be immediately evicted and lose their full deposit.
In accordance with UK law smoking is prohibited inside any CasaLondres property. Any tenant caught smoking inside one of our properties will be asked to leave immediately and will lose their deposit.
Damage to any of properties is strictly forbidden. This includes damage to walls. It is forbidden to put photos, posters and banners on walls as this damages the wall. Any damage caused by a tenant will be paid for by that tenant and that tenant and will lose their deposit.
All visitors must leave by 10.30pm. No tenant can permit a visitor to spend the night without first obtaining our express permission. If permission is granted, the tenant will be charged at the rate of £10 per person, per night. In addition, if the visitor requires either a letter of accommodation or any of mattress/duvet/bed linen, the tenant will pay CasaLondres a one-off £30 fee. If we discover that a visitor has spent the night in one of our properties without our permission, they will be removed with immediate effect and the tenant who brought the visitor to our property will be asked to leave and will forfeit their deposit.
We pride ourselves on being good neighbours and responsible members of the local community. Parties disturb our neighbours and the peace of the community. If a tenant holds a party it risks our good reputation and the tenant risks breaking the law. If any tenant is found guilty of breaching the peace they could face jail and/or a fine of up to £20,000. For these reasons we do not allow parties in any CasaLondres property. NO PARTIES.
9. ITEMS FROM THE STREET
Items left on the street are waiting for the council’s refuse disposal services to collect them and may be infected with insects and may be contaminated. Tenants are not allowed to bring any item taken from the street into our any of our properties. Such items include chairs, signs, mattresses, traffic cones etc. If any tenant is found bringing in an item off the street they will return the item and pay CasaLondres the sum of £100 to cover additional cleaning expenses.
Tenants must pay in advance for the whole period which they are away from the property.
Waste must be recycled according to the signs near the area of each property reserved for garbage. Recycling is the law and if the recycling laws are broken a fine can be imposed on the property. If one of our properties is fined, the fine will be paid by the tenants in the offending property.
