Landlords with end of tenancy cleaning on their minds have been urged to ensure they communicate with departing occupants.
Buy-to-let and private rented sector expert David Lawrenson has suggested that unnecessary disagreements surrounding the property’s inventory can be avoided if landlords take a more hands-on approach.
He recommended sending a copy of the document to the tenants around a month before they are due to move.
This, Mr Lawrenson argued, gives people more time to raise grievances with their landlords, especially regarding charges that have been issued due to damage to furniture.
“Unfortunately, what happens is that many letting agents and landlords are not so proactive and don’t tell the tenants anything,” he commented.
End of tenancy cleaners may also find their lives being made easier if communications between the landlord and tenant are improved, as the property owner can make it clear that the house or flat must not be left in a state.
This month, a study by Zoopla.co.uk showed that more house hunters may be best served looking to buy a home outright.
Figures indicated that in many parts of the UK, renting is now more expensive than paying towards a monthly mortgage.
