I have a policy of making sure that all of our properties are in good repair and spotlessly clean when tenants move in. During a tenancy you can soon see if the tenants are going to look after the property and in particular if they are going to keep it clean.
Recently I have visited properties that havenít been damaged but are quite frankly filthy. I always feel like telling the tenant to clean the place up, however I feel that it is not my place to comment on peoples cleanliness. In the past I would simply deal with it at the end of the tenancy by charging for cleaning the property.
How do other landlords deal with this issue?
Any comments would be appreciated.
