  1. Guest agrees to abide by all rules and regulations contained herein or posted on the premises related to the Rental Property.  Guests obligations include but are not limited to keeping the premises as clean and safe as the conditions of the premises permit and causing no unsafe or unsanitary conditions in the common area and remainder of the premises that Guest uses.  Guests agree not to use the premises for any commercial activities or purpose that violates any criminal law or governmental regulation.  Guest's breach of any duty contained in this paragraph shall be considered material and shall result in the termination of guest occupancy with no refund of any kind.
