In London, as everywhere else, owners of properties want to ensure that their properties are kept in as good a condition as possible and so if a property is to be leased the property owner will hire a property manager to ensure that it is. In order to maintain a property in their charge to a high standard, most property managers will create a tenancy agreement which every tenant must sign prior to being allowed to move into that property.
As well as stipulating certain rules for the property such as to whether pets are allowed, the number of people allowed to reside in the property or any types of businesses which will be allowed to be undertaken in the property, the property agreement will also state the condition that the property should be in when the end of the tenancy agreement is reached. The condition that the property will have to be left in will be very high and will usually include a very high state of cleanliness.
This is a reasonable request as the property when taken over will already be at that high standard and so it is only a matter of maintaining that high standard which is required. However, thye standard of cleanliness in the agreement is usually way higher than most of us would maintain our properties in and so at the end of the tenancy agreement a lot of hard cleaning work will be required in order to get it back to its original high standard. If the tenant does not have the property to the high standard of cleanliness, stipulated in the agreement, at the time they are to move out, the property manager will charge the tenant the amount that a service charges for end of tenancy cleaning in London and then hire the cleaning service business to complete the cleaning.
In London there are many such businesses that are available for end of tenancy cleaning of properties and so they know the standards expected and have trained their staff to meet those standards and showing them how to meet those standards if necessary. As a tenant may find, after the property manager has inspected the property, that they have to pay professional cleaners to come and clean the house, they often hire a cleaning service themselves and spare themselves a lot of cleaning tasks they would have had to do themselves.
Of course these services may cost a considerable amount but as the tenant may have to pay that anyway, they may as well pay it one time and save themselves some work and stress. These end of tenancy services do not only do end of tenancy cleaning though, they may also do routine cleaning of offices and if you wish, you could even hire them to do your annual spring cleaning of your home. If you do not want to pay them to do all the cleaning, they are even available to do individual cleaning tasks like cleaning ovens or cleaning carpets.
