Q. Will there be a house cleaning service or gardening service included?
A. Yes, cleaning of common areas takes place weekly and gardening generally takes place twice per month – depending on the weather. Cleaning of private rooms is up to each housemate.
Q. What if I don’t get along with the other housemates or there is a dispute?
A. We often find it is best if issues are dealt with directly without our involvement in the first instance. However, if necessary, we will act as mediators and we can also try to find a more convivial alternative room for you.
