Procedure at end of tenancy?
1. Tenant gave one month's required notice verbally and followed up 1 week later by letter - is effective date the verbal or written date?
2.I will check inventory with tenant - no obvious damage but some carpets very worn/dirty and will require replacement - is this fair wear and tear or is it reasonable to withold damages deposit contribution towards new carpets?
3.How to deal with electricity bill - check reading with tenant and ask for forwarding address?
4.Any particular way to deal with damages deposit balance - cash or cheque?
5. Want to write to tenant to advise leave clean and no rubbish - if these requests not complied with - can cleaning / rubbish removal costs come out of damages deposit?
many thanks in anticipation of your advice on above and anything else of importance I should do before tenant leaves.
I will obviuosly go through and check inventory with Tennant, but is there anything else i need to do.
My apologies in advance if this sounds very basic, but this is the first tennat that i have leaving a property.
