I've totally forgotten we've been due for an inspection and they have turned up befire I've cleaned! they are not looking to see how clean you are, they are checking that you haven't destroyed the place.
One time my brother (landlord) asked me to go with the property manager to do the inspection for him because he couldn't make it. All we looked for was to make sure no damage to walls and place looked ok ie neat and not trashed. Was really quick walk around. I dunno maybe our standards not as high as some other places.
Btw all the best with the upcoming arrival of your baby
These places get lived in im pretty sure thats classed as regular wear and tear and carpets have to be steamed cleaned upon vacating anyway??
Some marks do not come of walls and the re agent when we moved in to our current place pointed it out on walls here and said theres not much they can do.
Holes in walls etc is obviously different.
Yeah some property managers sound scary. I live in the house so it's not a show home. But I keep it clean and I tend the garden as best I can at 8 months pregnant and I love the house, and take pride in living there so I hope they can see that even if the windows aren't sparkling, or there's a weed in a garden bed.
Pregnant for the first-time?
Not sure where to start? We can help!
