In preparation for moving out day:

  1. Vacuum all carpets and floors and clean any marks or stains.
  2. Thoroughly wash any hard floor surfaces.
  3. Make sure the oven, hob and extractor fan are clean.
  4. Move the fridge out and clean behind it.
  5. Defrost freezers and clean dishwashers.
  6. Clean all cupboards, drawers, shelves – inside and out.
  7. Clean shower cubicles, baths and sinks. Ensure they are free of soap residue and mould.
  8. Clean the toilets inside and out.
  9. Clean washing machines and don’t forget the soap drawer.
  10. If there’s any mildew, this will need to be cleaned off ceilings or other surfaces.
  11. Wipe down walls and woodwork – don’t forget the top of skirting boards, window sills and internal windows.
  12. Light fittings, ledge and tops of doors also need to be dust free.
  13. Check and clean under beds, sofas and all other furniture to ensure the rooms are completely clean – you’ll be amazed at what you find!
  14. Put all rubbish in the outside bins and leave the outside area tidy.
  15. Take meter readings.
  16. Replace any broken lightbulbs.
  17. Replace any batteries in smoke alarms.
  18. Empty vacuum bags.

 On moving out day:

  1. You must be out of the property and return all keys to the Let Leeds office before 11am on the date that your contract ends.
  2. The best (and easiest!) thing to do is to get your property professionally cleaned. We can offer preferential rates through our contractors, so get in touch.
  3. Make sure you have fulfilled your list of responsibilities. We have compiled a full list of your responsibilities as a Tenant here.
  4. Log any maintenance issues on FIXFLO. You can do this by clicking here.
  5. Remove all your possessions and rubbish from the property.
  6. Notify all the relevant parties of your new address.
  7. Contact all your utility companies and request final bills to cover up to (and including) the last day of your Tenancy.
  8. Re-direct post to your new address.

Following these steps will ensure that moving out of your property runs smoothly and that you’ll get your full deposit back – the beers will be on you!
