With house prices soaring all over Australia, more and more people are being forced to rent for longer. However, whilst renting a home can be more affordable in the short term, you can also end up getting stung by agents and landlords when it comes to vacating your property – either through extra charges or a loss of your bond. To make sure that you get the majority or your entire bond returned, make sure that you leave the property as you found it.
Rental Rubbish Removal – for the tenant
Before you vacate your rental property, you need to ensure that you are leaving the apartment/house in the state that it was found. Property experts suggest taking pictures when you move in so that you can use it as evidence if any disputes arise on your departure. Taking photos of the condition of furniture and carpets is the best way of proving whether any damage was there already or if it’s just general wear and tear.
Removal of waste, rubbish, junk and old furniture and disposal
It’s also important to make sure that you have removed all of your furniture and belongings, otherwise landlords will charge you to have them removed. You might think you’re doing them a favour by leaving that extra bed or a new table, however most furniture in rental properties have to abide by certain safety rules, so you may actually be charged for leaving them.
Rental property cleanup for real estate inspection
Make sure you give the property a thorough clean and check your rental agreement before you leave. Some agents and landlords make it a requirement that you have the carpets industrially cleaned before you leave, otherwise the landlord will do it for you. Always do this type of work yourself, as landlords tend to charge extra to organise it themselves, taking the money out of your bond.
Skip hire and skip bins don’t work for real estate rental cleanup
So whilst you’re busy scrubbing the walls, give 1300Rubbish a call to come and remove any rubbish or furniture that you might want removed. We organise our collections within two hour windows and always try to work around whatever time is convenient to you. If you have to hand over the keys and have the property inspected at 12pm on a Monday, for example, we can guarantee that we will be there between 9am and 11am to remove any last minute rubbish.
Rubbish Removal for Rental Properties – for the landlord.
As a landlord, you need to ensure that every property is fit for the next person to move into. Unfortunately this can also mean cleaning up after your previous tenants. We’ve been called out to properties where tenants have left their furniture outside on the nature strip, or where they’ve just left, leaving all their furniture behind and the washing up in the sink. Wherever the rubbish, we are on hand to remove it quickly and efficiently, allowing you to focus on finding new tenants or preparing the property for inspections.
