  • Light up your life by replacing light bulbs
  • Bleeding the radiators – Google this if you don’t know how!
  • Unblocking sinks and drains and keeping them clear – not the most pleasant of jobs but it needs doing!
  • Testing smoke detectors and replacing batteries – crucial for your safety
  • Resetting any ‘trip’ switches
  • Reading your appliance manuals to ensure you are using them correctly – these can be downloaded online
  • Re-lighting pilot lights on the boiler
  • Turn up the pressure – keep the boiler pressure topped up 
  • Ensuring external drains are kept clear of debris – they won’t clear themselves!
  • Unleash your inner window cleaner and clean the windows inside and out
  • Look after your keys and keep your property secure – again for your own safety
  • You are responsible for any damage other than that which has already been noted on the Inventory or fair wear and tear
  • Keep the property clear of rubbish and use the appropriate bins for refuse
  • Ensure your property is properly ventilated, especially in the kitchen and bathroom, to avoid condensation and damp
  • Have green fingers? Make sure you keep outside areas weeded, clean and tidy
  • Return any post for the previous occupants to the sender – just write ‘RTS’ on the front and pop it back in the postbox
