An End Of Tenancy Clean Can Actually Save You Money
An end of tenancy clean should be on your moving out checklist and landlords and letting agents will specifically ask you to arrange one.
The stamp duty holiday means that people are buying houses while they can so that they can benefit from the tax break. But before they leave their existing house, they have to restore it to the same condition that it was when they moved in.
And there are also many of us that are or will be moving out of properties anyway regardless of the stamp duty holiday.
That’s where end of tenancy cleaning comes in. While they do cost money, having one done can actually save you money in the long run for two reasons:
Quite often, letting agents will charge you an admin fee if they have to book a cleaning company themselves. While a fee of around £40 might not seem like a lot, but it could cover your week’s shopping or other essential expenses. Plus, we all want to avoid unnecessary expenditure.
More Expensive Services
Letting agents will know reputable companies. But they could appoint a different cleaner that is more expensive than the one you would have gone with. This will eat into your deposit, so it is advisable to book your own cleaning company. That way, you know the exact price of your clean.
It is also advisable to take your own before and after photos so that you can prove the cleaning was carried out. The photos should also show the standard of the work.
End of tenancy cleans are important for homeowners and those renting, but they have commercial appeal too for landlords and letting agents.
