What is expected from you

Moving and washing out is time consuming. How extensive it is depends on how well it is cleaned daily.

The whole apartment must be cleaned thoroughly including in common areas, balcony and storage rooms, Even if your roommate is staying or moving out later.

All of the stains and dirt should be removed and you must clean places that you do not normally clean during regular cleaning. The bathroom and kitchen must be cleaned thoroughly.

Injuries and defects must also be registered well in advance of inspection. So it can be remedied in the tenant's rental period. If this is registered too late, it can incur a rental income loss that the tenant will  be responsible for.

Tips before you start

Start with the tiles in the bathroom and kitchen well before the handover. Many find that they have to spend several rounds on this. It may be smart to take a thorough cleaning a few weeks before handing over. Remember to use the right products for different areas.

Remember:

  • Leave the mailbox key hanging on the hook in your apartment.
  • The apartment must be completely emptied and cleaned before handover.
  • If you rent a parking space, this must be handed over at the same time. The booth must be emptied and swept
  • Please remove your name label from your mail box.
  • Outlets after using a washing machine must be sealed with a sealer

Parking cards

are issued upon relocation during our opening hours, please contact the reception in good time before you need the parking card.  It is given up to 2-3 hours at a time.
