End of Tenancy Cleaning Organised by Your Landlord
Having an end of tenancy cleaning is vital for getting your deposit back. However, your landlord can hire a professional cleaning company instead of you to perform the end of tenancy cleaning. As a result, he/she will deduct the amount from your deposit. This actually doesn’t work in your favour, as your landlord would rather hire a high-quality professional cleaning service than a domestic one off clean. Have in mind that he/she cannot charge you more than the actual price for the service. For this reason, always ask for the receipt as a proof of the professional cleaning service performed at your residence.
If you decide to clean yourself, make sure you have the check in inventory handy and follow the checklist in order not to miss a thing. Otherwise, your deposit might not be returned in full.
