I am renting a large studio (around 33 sqm) and my tenancy is finishing soon. I am keeping the studio in immaculate condition (as also noticed by the Estate agent when popping in to show the property to the new tenant). In my contract it is written that the flat has to be professionally cleand at the end of the tenancy but I was wondering if I can still do it by myself (I even clean the outdoor windows using the specific tool bi-monthly). I know for sure that I would be able to clean the studio flat very well but I was wondering whether there is still a way for the agency to find out it was not done by an external agency. Will the contractor responsible of the check out ask for a receipt?
The Estate Agent provided contacts of three contractors for the professional cleaning that I might wish to use but they were not particularly pushy about it.
I know it might not be right to try to get away with it without paying this fee but I honestly spend so much on cleaning on a daily basis and I would be keen to save this money. Would you also know how much would approximately be an end of tenancy cleaning service for a 33 sqm flat? There is no carpet, it is wooden floor throughout.
