Required move out standard
Although the condition of the property at move-in will be taken into account, as will a degree of fair wear and tear, the expected standard at move-out is set out below:
- Work surfaces and Units: All work surfaces and kitchen units, including drawers, should be clean and free of grease (inside and out).
- Sinks and Taps: The sinks and taps should be cleaned and made free of limescale
- Cooker and Oven Hoods/ Microwave: The cooker / oven hood should be thoroughly cleaned inside and out (including shelves, glass door, grill pans and oven trays) and made free from grease and marks. The filter in the extractor hood should be replaced if the filter is disposable and cleaned if the filter is permanent. If electric, the power should be switched off. If the cooker is free-standing it should be carefully pulled out and both the sides and the back cleaned. Cleaning of the cooker should be undertaken with an appropriate oven cleaner. The microwave, if applicable, should be thoroughly cleaned inside and out and the power switched off.
- Fridge / Freeze: Fridges should be emptied, cleaned both inside and out and made free of grease and marks. The door should be left open and the power switched off. If the fridge is freestanding it should be carefully pulled out and both sides and back cleaned. Freezers should be emptied, defrosted, thoroughly cleaned inside and out, the door left open and the power switched off. Again, if the freezer is free-standing it should be carefully pulled out and the sides and back cleaned.
- Washing Machine / Dishwasher: The washing machine should be cleaned both inside and out (including the soap dispenser, inside door seal and if applicable, the filter). In addition, if it is freestanding it should be carefully pulled out and both sides and the back cleaned. The door of the washing machine should be left open and the power switched off. The dishwasher, where one exists, should be thoroughly cleaned both inside and out and again, if free-standing, carefully pulled out and both sides and back cleaned.
- All other kitchen appliances (kettles, coffee percolators, toasters etc.): All other kitchen appliances should be thoroughly cleaned (free from marks and grease) and with the electrical power switched off.
- Crockery, Cutlery, Utensils, Glassware, Cookware and other: All crockery, cutlery, utensils, glassware, saucepans and other kitchenware should be thoroughly cleaned and free of dust, marks and grease.
