Tough argument between landlords and tenants is a common experience. More often than not, landlords are hardly aware of the damage done to their property until the tenant packs out. Some tenants when moving out leave a lot of debris behind for the landlord to clear away. They wont even sweep the apartment. Is this right? Please put yourself in the shoe of the landlord and you will realize is not a fine idea at all.
Indeed, you are supposed to clean up as you leave. But this is not the case with most tenants. In fact, as landlord inspects property, he sees walls battered with holes, door knob broken, toilet in bad state, the floor of the bathroom covered with scum, the environment hardly ever swept. Heck! The list is endless.
The landlord then spends his money to effect maintenance on the property. In one case, the landlord had to clear the outstanding 6 months light bill of a previous tenant.
