[Resolved] End of Lease Cleaning and Inspection
Last edited 02/07/2018 - 18:40
After a year living in an apartment (approx 40sq meters), my girlfriend and I are preparing to move out.
A month ago, we contacted the real estate to inform them, and they answered us a list of things to do before leaving, such as carpet steam cleaning, and a link to their preferred cleaner.
The cleaning company sent us a quote :
- $88 for a carpet steam cleaning
- $350 for a full cleaning (including carpet)
Our question is the following:
Is it worth it to opt for the full cleaning in order to get our full bond back? In other words, does the real estate really care about who did the cleaning, as long as the property is clean?
Our second question concerns the final inspection.
On the vacate mail, nothing was stated about us participating in the final inspection. I did some research and apparently, I can (and I should) ask to be present during this inspection, is it true? (We live in Victoria)
Thank you very much for all your messages!
We decided to go for the Full cleaning with the agent's recommended cleaner. After some researches, that seems to be the price when you include oven, fridge, and balcony cleaning extras.
We also realized that cleaning ourselves will be harder since we only have a cheap vacuum and almost no cleaning products.
