The information listed below is offered to help you understand what is expected of you at the end of the lease term, in order to receive a refund of your cleaning and damage deposit.These items are referenced in your lease agreement.

Place All Trash in Designated Containers

  • This means in the garbage can(s).If you have more garbage than will fit in the cans, it must be bagged and placed at the curb.The recycle can provided to you is not designated for garbage, and the city will not pick it up if used as such.If we are required to do this for you, you will be charged a fee of $100 for trash removal.
    • Professionally Clean the House

      • This includes:baseboards, fan blades, blinds, windows, light fixtures, in and behind the oven and refrigerator, surface of and inside cabinets, counters, kitchen sink, garage/laundry, floors, bathrooms (sink, tub, toilet, fixtures).Charges are assessed according to the amount of work necessary to make the house ready for the next tenants — the dirtier the house is, the more it will cost to clean it.
        • Steam-Clean the Carpet

          • Obviously this doesn’t apply to the houses without carpet.However, if you have carpet, it is the tenant’s responsibility to have the carpet steam-cleaned.
            • Repair and Repaint Damaged Walls

              • You are required to repair holes caused by nails with caulk (not putty), and larger holes with the necessary materials, and touch up the paint after doing so.Our standard wall color is a Lowe’s brand paint — Olympic FastHide Semi Gloss Interior Latex in Off White (item 110491) .The standard charge for wall repair and repainting is $100.Any walls painted without prior consent must be returned to the standard color.The cost of repainting will be determined by the amount of work necessary.
                • Remove Belongings/Furniture

                  • Any furniture left in the unit beyond the end of the lease term, without prior consent, will be considered abandoned, pursuant to Florida Statutes Chapter 83.The standard cost of furniture removal is $100.The landlord cannot be responsible for agreements made between tenants, and the items involved in those agreements.
                    • THE COST OF CLEANING AND DAMAGES IS ASSESSED AT THE END OF THE LEASE TERM AND THEN DIVIDED EQUALLY AMONG THE NUMBER OF TENANTS. A TENANT NOT PRESENT DURING THE SUMMER, FOR EXAMPLE, IS STILL RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ITEMS LISTED ABOVE AND AN EQUAL PORTION OF THE APPLICABLE CHARGES.
