The Condition of the Property and Disrepair
You must not make any alteration or addition to the property, or do any redecoration without sending your written request to us via letter or email and receiving back our permission in writing (which we will not refuse or delay without good reason).
You must keep the inside of the property, and the fixtures and fittings, in good condition, undamaged (other than by fair wear and tear), and clean and tidy.
You must keep any shared areas clean and fit for use by you and anyone else living in or using them.
You must tell us promptly about any repair that is needed, or any act of vandalism done to the property or any fixtures or items that we are responsible for.
You will be responsible for the repair of any damage to the property, or the shared areas, or to our fixtures and fittings, that you have caused (except for fair wear and tear), and you must refund us for any money which we have to pay to repair the damage.
You must not block or obstruct the drains and pipes, gutters and channels in or around the property, and you must take all reasonable steps to prevent any part of the draining and heating systems becoming frozen during the winter months. You will be responsible for paying for or refunding (as far as is reasonable) all losses which we and any of your neighbours suffer as a result of your failure to follow this condition.
You must keep the garden (if there is one) neat and tidy and maintained to the same standard as it was in the start of the tenancy agreement.
You must not allow anyone who is not named in your tenancy agreement (apart from, where appropriate, your husband, wife or civil partner and any children of the family aged under 18 years) to live in or share possession or occupation of the property with you. This does not apply to visitors but these should not normally stay at the property for longer than three weeks without our written permission (which we will not refuse or delay without good reason).
You must use the property as a private residence only. This means that you must not carry out any profession, trade or business at the property.
You must not do anything on or at the property that:
Causes or is likely to cause a nuisance or annoyance to anyone else living in the property or anyone else who owns or lives in nearby premises.
Is illegal or immoral.

You will be responsible for paying (as far as is reasonable) for all losses which we, and anyone else, may suffer as a result of you not following this condition.
You must not leave the property empty for a continuous period of more than 30 days without telling us, either beforehand or as soon as possible in an emergency, and you must make the property secure when you are leaving it unattended.
You must not keep any pet or any kind of animal at the property unless you have our written permission (which we will not refuse or delay without good reason).
You must not do anything on or at the property that will in any way affect the insurance of the property and its contents, or which will increase the premium that the landlord has to pay. If you do not follow this clause you will have to re-pay the landlord, for the period of time you are living at the property, any extra amount the landlord has to pay for their insurance premium which is due to your conduct or the conduct of anyone you have allowed to live at or visit the property.
You will be responsible for arranging and paying the premiums for any insurance cover for your personal belongings.
