Also, we are generally 10 minutes drive from any of the properties, in case of emergency. We will endeavour to resolve any problems as soon as we can, and generally replace all faulty equipment with new, if repairs cannot be achieved quickly.

Our houses cater for groups of 3 to 5 students, mixed or otherwise. The lease agreement is a joint lease, i.e. the tenants sign as a group, not individually.
