Preparing for check-out
PLEASE NOTE: As your tenancy is Joint & Several, you are all jointly & severally liable for any charges for cleaning & damages when you vacate the property, and any charges will be split equally between all tenants (including those related to bedrooms). If one or more tenant/s contact us in writing to take responsibility for something (i.e. a breakage), we may apply the respective charges to them only.
You are required to leave the property in the same condition of decoration and cleanliness as it was at the commencement of the tenancy, reasonable wear & tear excepted. We would advise you to thoroughly prepare for the check-out appointment to avoid unnecessary charges. – Any charges for repairing or replacing damaged items or cleaning will be deducted from your deposit.
The check-out appointment will be undertaken by an independent Inventory company. They will have a copy of the Inventory from the commencement of the tenancy to compile a check-out report which will list any damages or cleaning required.
Please make sure the house is prepared for your check-out appointment; if the agent attends and is unable to undertake the check-out, we will reschedule the appointment and you will be charged the abortive fee which is a minimum of £55.
