Dont know what property this was but where a property is professionally cleaned (check inventories or copies of receipts as proof) at the start of a tenancy, Tenants are asked to leave it in the same condition. We dont demand that tenants use one of our recommended cleaners but they are recommend for a reason. There are a lot of unreliable cleaning companies out there that don't do a good job and don't come back if cleaning is deemed unsatisfactory; leaving Tenants worse off as they then have to pay for additional cleaning to be done. Where a property is not professionally cleaned at the start of the tenancy, Tenants are not liable to professionally clean it unless they break any clauses that may require this service to be carried out. Ie. by having pets, smoking etc. We are always happy to clarify or advise tenants what their position is on cleaning and any other vacating obligations.
