In summary we allow you to break contract each quarter on (Q1) 1st Dec, (Q2) 28th Feb, (Q3) 31st May and (Q4) 31st Aug.  There is no charge for breaking at the end of the tenancy on 31st Aug, however breaking after Q2 incurs a cost of a weeks' rent, whilst breaking after Q1 or Q3 incurs a cost of two weeks' rent.  In each case, please give us six weeks' notice of your intention to break.  


If you have no heating or power, have a serious leak or are locked out, call us immediately on the numbers above.  Although please be mindful we are not a 24 hour porterage - we sleep at normal times - just like you.

TOp bathroom macerated wc

Please note the WC, basin and shower in the top bathroom operates using a macerator.  This means its waste is mashed and pumped away down a small bore pipe.  It will block if anything other than toilet waste is flushed down the WC.

Please do not flush tampons, dental floss, face wipes etc as they will clog the pump.

Internet and Wifi

  • 19RR - the main Virgin router, located in the cupboard under the stairs

  • 19RR R3 - access point located in room 3

  • 19RR L1 2.4GHz - NetGear WiFi booster located on the first floor landing

2.4Ghz wifi generally broadcasts over a longer range but at a slower speed, whereas 5Ghz has a shorter range but faster speed.  Therefore use 5Ghz wherever possible

Passwords for all routers and access points [case sensitive] = rainbow19RR
