Please note: This list is to help you clean the property to an acceptable standard. This list is only a guide as every property is different and may require further cleaning than what is detailed above. If we have to get you back because the cleaning of the inside is not acceptable, or work on the outside is not completed we will charge rent on a daily basis as the new tenant cannot move in until it has been done.
