Honourable and personal residential letting experts

Typically 39% of the deductions made from deposits are because there is cleaning still required and the carpets have not been left in the same standard as found at the start of the tenancy – a requirement of our tenancy agreements. Sadly these deductions are often made despite residents working hard to get the home clean.

Some residents buy end of tenancy cleaning services from contractors who are not on our approved list. We have experienced some residents have received very poor value, sometimes getting little more than the receipt and no recourse for shoddy work.

We check if the property is clean, not the effort or cost that has gone into the work. Where things have been missed there is then a minimum cost to get someone in to get the work completed.

To prevent this we offer a check-out cleaning service by an approved contractor, which means residents do not have to do any cleaning or worry about whether their home is clean enough when they leave! As these are approved contractors, if the cleaning is inadequate, they will come back at no cost to you, with authority to use our keys for access, and they underwrite to deliver the standard required.

We work with a number of contractors to deliver this service. Their cost to provide this is:
