Do you clean your place when moving out?

If you've ever moved out of a rental property, did you clean the place up before turning in the keys?

Example ::

Vacuum

Sweep

Dust blinds and windowsills and fans

Clean oven

Clean refrigerator/freezer

Clean bathrooms

Clean walls and doors

Things like that.

Did you do those things the last time you moved out of a rental property?

  • I have always cleaned the houses that I've lived in before moving out. It was my mess (or, partially, depending on who else was there, too) and I will take care of it.

    I figure that I would be upset to discover inconsiderate neglect if I was ever to rent a property, or if I moved into one (either rental or purchase) without fully realizing the extent. People need to take responsibility, in my opinion.

  • Way too much trouble. I place a case of beer on the living room floor, then break the lock on the front door. Then I stop at the nearest homeless camp and tell the doors open and there's a case of beer on the floor. I then drop the keys off to the agent and tell him how hard I worked cleaning the place spotless. When he gets there he finds the place full of drunk homeless people, and assumes they trashed the place. Life's too short for scrubbing floors.

  • I think you're obligated to do so. I'm not sure if it's a law that obligates or the contract, but at least in Finland you have to clean the place up.

    I'm moving this month and plan on doing everything but the walls and doors from your list.
