Leaving a property in good condition will keep you in a positive light with the landlord and any future correspondence you will need to have with him or her will be cordial and positive. When you move in to a rental space be it domestic or commercial, it is common practice for the landlord to keep a deposit or bond. Most often at the end of the tenancy period, the renter can get the bond back, but this depends on the condition the apartment is returned in. This bond or deposit is usually used to pay for any damage to the property while in use by the tenant. So how can one ensure that he or she can get the full bond or at least most of it back at the end of the term? Here are some tips a tenant can make use of to make the process easier.
Make it a practice: if you are normally a cleanly person, then cleaning would come naturally to you. However even if you are such a person, having a busy schedule and kids and the elderly to take care of can put such chores to the back of the list. In such situations, it is best to hire professional cleaning services in Melbourne to do the job for you in a timely and efficient manner. Though this may cost extra, it can save you at the end of the tenancy and make daily life a little bit better.
Improvements: these are usually billed to the landlord. It is his responsibility to make sure that the house is in working order. Plumbing, heating etc should work as promised or stated in the agreement. So before you put your DIY hands in to the business of any repairs, contact the landlord to get his input. You can avoid unnecessary expenses this way and be in the good graces of the landlord. And he may already have home improvement contracts signed with agents or service providers that he can make use of at a better rate than you. So it is always better to keep him in the know. And do not wait till the end of the tenancy to let him know either.These are a few things to keep in mind, and if you follow them regularly then there is no need to worry about being over charged at the end of your tenancy.
