Property maintenance has always been a grey area when it comes to property rentals, and this is the area where most disagreements fall between landlords and tenants.
Landlords have to adhere to a set of regulations, with regards to the upkeep of their property. Once a tenant moves in, the basic upkeep of the property is in the tenant’s interest to keep it to the standard on the day they moved in.
This includes the general upkeep of the garden. If you return the house/apartment back in a state where the grass is 6 feet high, you could be expecting an amount to be deducted from your deposit.
So whilst the weather is good, spring into action and get on top of all those household tasks.
If you have green fingers and want to make any permanent changes like; adding a vegetable patch a garden path or patio, it is best practice to always gain permission form your landlord first.
