    We're moving soon and a bit worried about how it's going to go, there's a few bumps and scratches on the walls, and we're breaking lease, so I'm freaking out they'll stretch it out as long as they can.

    But our plan is to clean it as much as we can, do everything basically on the check list over the weekend (so maybe 6-8 hours over two days, we'll leave the kids at my mums house) and then get an end of lease cleaner to go over it so it's as perfect as perfect as possible. Also so we're able to give receipts to prove its been done professionally. But for us it's the fear if it's not absolutely perfect, if we have to come back to fix anything, that's time they're not finding a tenant.

    But like I've been cleaning windows, inside cupboards, scrubbing the bathroom grout, started on some walls, etc for the last week or so when I get a chance, so it's not all one big job at the end.

    When we moved out of our last place, the first place we lived in in Australia, we got an end of tenancy professional cleaner in. They had a guarantee that if the agent had any issues, they would come back. It was well worth paying whatever it was that we paid - they did everything and cleaned the carpets, etc. We'll definitely be getting someone to do the same when we move from this place, too!

    Ok 1 more bond clean question! There is mould underneath the caulk/sealant stuff in the shower. I can't clean it unless I rip up the sealing...will the RE attempt to rip me off for that?

    I've rented houses that have had mould build up in those areas and have never had an issue with getting my bond back.

    Spray it with exit mould?
    I don't think you would be fined for that?

    Bleach will hide the mould

    I second the exit mould or domestos, toilet cleaner with bleach in it.
    Was any of it there when you moved in?
    It may just come down to wear and tear?

    Eeee this thread has got me thinking...we are renting for around ten months while our house is getting built...we are renting for the first time. When we moved in the place was filthy!! Hairs of many varieties (if u know what I mean) left all over the bathroom, dust everywhere, dirty oven and tiles. It is a two year old place. The condition report confirmed that the agent knew it was dirty, it was a video condition report and some of the agents comments where things like "filthy" and "disgusting".

    No body came to clean again and us never renting before thought it was normal and cleaned it ourself.

    My question is because we received it dirty can we give it back in the same condition? My pride won't let me leaveit filthy with pubes in the bathroom but I don't want to spend time on every nook and cranny when it wasn't done for us.

    Yes, that is how it works. You hand the keys over, leaving the property in the same condition you rented it in.

    If it was really feral, you should get away with doing a very basic clean.
