I have just resigned an agreement to stay at the property I have been renting for a year now. Two of the other 4 girls have also done this. Having started the new term the landlord now wants the property to be deep cleaned. As we haven’t vacated the property we don’t agree with this. We are happy to do this when we vacate the property.
It must be taken into account the unreasonable expectation that the property be cleaned professionally when it was not let to us in such a manner.
Furthermore she is asking 3 of us to pay for cleaning costs for 5 people’s usgage. Obviously this is grossly unfair and clearly incorrect.
Our landlord did not make any effort to see us in the first year, this was the first time we met her having exchanged contracts via an agency before. She has seen the property is in a good state. In addition to all of this, we have continually asked for the front door to be repaired/refitted. It is insecure and let’s in so much draught. We emailed the landlord this at the beginning of the last agreement and she largely ignored us and refused when pushed to do anything. This is in addition to stalling when agreeing to clean the garden which was not done for months.
What would be the best way to go about this? Thanks in advance.
