End of Tenancy Cleaning London Aims to End Cleaning Disputes Between London Landlords and Tenants

A London end of tenancy cleaning company aims to help landlords in London reduce the end of tenancy cleaning deposit disputes, which has risen by 13% over the past three years.

 

London, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/10/2015 -- In the UK and London, landlords and letting agents face a running battle with tenants leaving their properties unclean at the end of their tenancy. With thousands of tenants claiming they left the property as they found it, the cleaning issue now accounts for 53% of deposit disputes. Citi Clean, a leading London end of tenancy cleaning company, has now found a solution to the problem.

Citi Clean aims to solve the growing cleaning deposit disputes by providing the landlord with written confirmation the property has been professionally cleaning. This confirmation can then be given to the tenant at the start of their tenancy where they can sign it to confirm the property has been professionally cleaned.

A spokesman for Citi Clean said: "We understand the frustration landlords and letting agents have when it comes to the end of a tenancy. By putting a procedure in place, it will give the tenant two options. Give the property a good clean before they move out or lose some of their deposit to pay for an end of tenancy cleaning service."

According to reports, there has been an increase with tenants leaving the property in an untidy state at the end of their tenancy. That has led to tenants being shocked when their landlord deducts money from their deposit to have the property cleaned by a professional company. These tenants expect the landlord to foot the bill and give them back their full deposit even though the landlord is out of pocket due to the extra end of tenancy cleaning that is required.

Although each landlord needs to hire an end of tenancy cleaning company to have the property ready for the next tenant, if the property is in an untidy state, it means an increase in the cleaning charge.

By putting into place the Citi Clean procedure where the tenant is aware that the property has been professionally cleaned, the deposit disputes will be reduced.

A spokesman for Citi Clean said: "We also advise landlords and letting agents include in the contract that a deduction will be taken from the deposit if the property is left untidy."

Citi Clean has become one of the most recommended London end of tenancy cleaning companies, and as such the majority of their clients comes from referrals.
