Who should be held responsible for the cleanliness of the accommodation before new tenants move in? Should it be the landlords job or the old tenants?

When you come into a new property you only deal with the landlord, not the previous tenant. You care that it is or it isn’t clean. You don’t care that somebody who you never met or spoke to didn’t do something they agreed with your new landlord.

So, in terms of responsibility, it’s always the landlord who is responsible in front of new tenants.

I ask this question in a real sense of understanding who is really held responsible for having the accomodation cleaned before a new tenant moves in. There are cases of landlors depending on old tenants on doing a good job to get the flat cleaned their selves, without considering a professional cleaner who will get the job done correctly and will clean places where we would not even think to clean.

All depends on how the property was when the tenant moved in, if it was professionally cleaned then the tenant should leave it the way they found it and the landlord should have the right to deduct money if he has to get an end of tenancy cleaning company in.  www.first4cleaning.co.uk
