A well-kept garden adds certain amount of extra appeal. This is not always a major priority for landlords or agents . Some merely state in the tenancy agreement the outdoor areas must be kept to a “satisfactory standard”. However, any any special arrangements about the maintenance should be listed.
Over the last few years an increasing number of end of tenancy agreements are making this clause more relevant, requiring garden areas to look their best. They have always been important but perhaps now, more than ever, landlords are demanding a guarantee and, if necessary, withhold part of the deposit to pay for the maintenance. Outgoing photographs may be the ideal evidence to support any possible deductions after the tenant's departure.
Any garden services hired need to be wide ranging and versatile enough to cover a broad range of situations. Usually the company taking care of the professional clean would quote and deliver garden maintenance as an additional service. When you combine your garden services with an end of tenancy cleaning quite possibly you will be able to make some savings as a result of multiple service booking. Often the list of tasks include the basic such as tidying the garden, tree and hedge trimming, grass cutting but it may well include other more specific such as weeding, composting, last minute landscaping, land levelling, patio or driveway washing.
Again it is always worth checking with your cleaning company so they may be a one-stop-shop. There are many out there with excellent and personalized customer care providing specialist staff who can meet the landlords and agents’ expectations at the end of an agreement . Their expert advice may be valuable when it comes to decisions regarding the future well-being too. Last but not least please ensure the removal of garden waste at the end of the work is included in the quote so the areas are left as expected.
A lot of people find it hard to get into the routine of keeping on top of things. This is an awesome example of how to save time at the end of a tenancy.
