Life at Restly

Restly is an experiment in shared living. We hope you’ll be considerate to your flatmates. We have to live together to make it work. Here are some thoughts on the type of behaviour we hope to see.

No Smoking

Due to the risk of fire and the effects of second-hand smoke, smoking is prohibited in all areas of the property. Restly reserves the right to enforce fines for those failing to comply.

Keep Communal Areas Clean

  • Please look after your room and the communal areas of the flat.

  • Use the bins provided and empty regularly.

  • If you see something that needs repairing, please report it.

Respect Your Flatmates and Neighbours

  • Do not do anything in the property which may become a nuisance to any other occupiers of the property or nearby premises.

  • Do not organise parties inside or outside of the property.

  • Guests must leave the premises at a suitable time before 9 pm.

Please ensure all doors and windows are locked when you are not in the property. If you lose the keys, please contact us immediately. Also, please note that Restly is not responsible for any theft inside the property.


  • Do not throw any materials or substances into the sink/toilet.

  • If you fail to keep the toilet unclogged, it will be your responsibility to clean and this may result in charges.

If it is found that the drains are blocked due to a tenant’s negligence, the tenants will be responsible for the cost of unblocking.

In order to maintain the good condition of the bathroom, it is important to mop the floor daily. It is the tenant's duty to ensure the bathroom is thoroughly cleaned and clear of personal belongings.
