Under the terms of our tenancy agreements, tenants agree at the end of the tenancy to (amongst other things):

  • Clean to a good standard, the property, its fixtures and fittings and contents (if any), including the cleaning of any carpets, curtains (including net curtains), blankets, bedding, upholstery etc. which have become soiled, stained or marked during the tenancy.
  • Deliver up the property to the landlord at the end of the tenancy in the same good and clean state of repair condition and decoration as they were in at the commencement of the tenancy, fair wear and tear and accidental damage by fire excepted.

However, effective 1st June 2019 landlords can no longer include terms in a tenancy agreement that require the tenant to contract a third party as a condition of their tenancy such as a chimney sweep, pest controller for treating the property for fleas or parasites, professional cleaner, tenant liability insurance provider, tenant referencing company, third party liability insurance for a pet, vet or waste clearance company for septic tanks.
