contract end date Monday 31 AUGUST BY AFTERNOON 1 PM________________
Now your studies should be going well or near finished ,you should all be cleaning and tidying up as soon as possible . Please notify me of your preferred inspection slot for inspections commencing end of AUGUST .Inspections can be carried earlier by request from the tenants if they are leaving early only. You should do your fair share of cleaning of the communal areas .Any damage should be reported for any deduction in deposit.
Normally inspections will take 1/4 an hour . Then the day you are due to leave the landlord may meet you at the house to collect the keys(by default) or they can be left on the table of your bedroom/bedroom door (landlord must be notified before if you wish to leave keys in your bedroom table/door ) ,or if you want to return them by post you much first ask the landlord for special permission.
The Deposit will be put into your bank accounts , so do not close your UK bank account early. It must be reminded that it is a breach of the contract to use your deposit as last months rent. Please note your meter readings few days before the end of your contract .Please request the final bill to be sent . Failure to do so could cause delay in receiving your deposit back. All final bills must be requested for all properties( Must see the full final bill with the closing meter readings )i.e GAS, ELECTRIC and WATER(sometimes council tax bill if you are not a student). Deposits will not normally be returned straight away after the contract due to the sheer workload for the landlord , but will be returned according to the relevant tenancy deposit procedure or within 10 days of requesting them with due regard following the correct deposit procedure, having complied with the deposit procedures fully BELOW. For tenants in shared houses leaving early , there is a bill form that the remaining tenants must sign to say you have paid your fair share of bills.
Please note you must remove all your own rubbish in the bins provided for the property .No rubbish should be placed outside the premises. If you have many black bags then you should make your arrangement for removal . NO RUBBISH TO BE LEFT IN THE GARDEN (to be placed in bins provided). If the house is not clean , then a cleaner may have to be employed to cover the cleaning and this will be charged by the tenants Please note we reserve the right to ask for evidence of forwarding address before administering deposits, especially if the bills have any issue. It is your responsibility to tell the Utility suppliers of your move and note the meter readings accordingly and forward them to the landlord also ( for prepaid meters).
The deposit will be returned as soon as the following have been complied with. This information is ONLY relevant to tenants who’s contract ENDS 31 AUGUST 2020
