If you’re nearing the end of your lease, I’d bet cleaning your home is not at the top of your list of things you’re looking forward to getting done…
You may be more concerned with packing up your belongings, and how to get all of your furniture to your next house or apartment. Yet it is essential to make sure the place you’re renting is spic and span before you leave, to ensure you get your bond back.
We’ve compiled a handy guide to help you with everything you need to know when it comes to end of lease cleaning. Read on to find out what you need to do to avoid losing your bond!
Call professional cleaners
To save money you may need to spend some money. Having professional bond cleaners come in to provide a full move-out clean means that your landlord will have nothing to complain about when they come to do a final inspection.
“Most professional cleaning services will back their work. Our Gold Medal Service Guarantee is one of the best because we ensure you can speak to a real person who can identify your needs and the service you require, organise a free quote at a time that best suits you and we turn up when we say we will every time. We also offer a 7 Day workmanship guarantee so if you’re not satisfied, we will come and fix for no extra cost.” Said Mike Dowling, CEO of James’ Home Services.
At James’ Home Services our service franchisees are police checked and fully ensured. Our teams work together to eliminate stress for clients and make a move-out clean seem like only a small price to pay for getting your hefty bond back.
Know your rights
No matter how long you’ve been renting at your current property, it is important to always remember that at the end of the day the residence does not belong to you. As such, it is essential that you are aware of your obligations and — even more importantly — your landlord’s obligations.
The below may vary depending on your state of residence and should not be construed as legal advice. Check your state tenancy authority’s website for full details.
Generally by law, landlords are required to provide repairs to properties to ensure that acceptable living conditions are maintained for tenants at all times. Unfortunately, landlords — either unwittingly or purposefully — may ask tenants pay for repairs that landlords are obliged to provide instead.
Repairs that landlords are obliged to provide may include urgent repairs, such as broken appliances in the bathroom or the kitchen, to less urgent matters like mould growing because of structural dampness or broken elements on stove tops. Make sure that you’re not paying for repairs that are meant to be provided by your landlord.
