We are moving out of our rental property which we've been here 12 months.
I haven't rented before and want all of our bond back.
So what's some tips to make sure this will happen?
I've cleaned all windows and tracks. Oven, doors, walls, there's no damage.
We've mowed, weed, whip snip yard
I gernie the outdoor concrete.
Would I worry about the patio roof. It's got some patches of dirt nothing bad at all.
So any tips please let me know

Cleaning at end of lease

Top of doors and windows. Some are very pedantic and will check this!
Make sure there are no dead bugs in light fixtures. Also the top of any ceiling fans

Exhaust fans in the kitchen and bathroom
Fly wire on doors (it's a PITA to clean but they will pick you up)
Dust anywhere! The smallest bit they want to hire a cleaner to come in and fix it
Cupboards and drawers need to be clean with no marks
Bascially, leave the place cleaner than when you moved in and keep a copy of your property report handy in case they dispute anything.

I'd pay the $300 and get the pros in, as well as do the carpets. After seeing my fiancé and my brother both have to do that after they thought they'd done a proper job, I wouldn't even bother myself

We paid $600 for professional cleaners last time but that was everything inside and out. DS was only 4 months and there was no way I was going to spend 3 days on it. We've always done it ourselves before that, ughh what a pain.
Other things I can think of-
under the eaves clean and free of cobwebs
gutters cleared of leaves
No marks in the the cupboard under the bathroom sink
The S bend part of the toilet that always collect so much dust

We paid to get it done last move & it was so worth it! Made the move less stressful & I will never bother spending hours and hours cleaning when the pros can come in with all the right products.. Plus you have to get carpets cleaned anyway so find a company that does it all!
ETA: we paid 320 for a 3 bedroom house, carpet throughout, they cleaned everything! Including windows inside & out.. Looked much better than when we moved in!

Thanks for the replies. I'm pretty much on the suggested items.
I got a quote to cleaning and it would cost us $500.
I'm a bit of a scourge cause I know it's something I can do myself plus I'm a clean freak.
So I will do my best and I won't let the agent get someone else in to fix up what I can do.
Ive already told my agent this.
Plus the owners just sold so every week I made sure the house was immaculate for open homes so they know I was keeping the house tidy.
I just really need our bond.

If there is any carpet they have to be professionally cleaned. With everything else it sounds like you're on top of it all. The only things I can think to add would be AC filters (if you have it) and the top of the kitchen cupboards. If you have a stand alone stove I'd pull it out and clean behind it too.
Good luck with the move.
