The Council fines anyone leaving rubbish at the front of the property out with pick up time. (In light of circumstances stated, your co-operation in this matter is greatly appreciated).
  6. The cottage will be left in a clean and tidy condition, if there are breakages or damage caused we will be told and recompense will be made prior to departure.
