Should we find any damage to the flat/room, the repair cost will be deducted from your deposit.  

Remember to clear your storage unit before moving out. 

Washing/drying clothes
All washing and drying of clothes should take place in the laundry provided by the Landlord. Drying clothes in your apartment creates a lot of dampness, which in turn leads to a poor indoor climate. Consequently, we encourage you to dry your clothes in the clothes dryer at the laundry. You are not permitted to install your own washing machine/clothes dryer. Exceptions to this rule are the apartments where outlets have been installed for this purpose.  
Cleaning

Your unit
Tenants are responsible for cleaning and tidying their own apartment or studio apartment/bedsit. Tenants are also obliged to cooperate with the other users to keep any common areas (bathrooms, corridors, etc.) clean. In cases where several tenants share a bathroom, those concerned should follow the schedule of who has responsibility for the cleaning each week 

 

Common kitchen, lounge and corridors

Each tenant shall clean and tidy the communal kitchen and any common areas after use. All kitchen utensils, cutlery, etc. shall be placed in the respective cupboards and drawers. Tenants shall also keep their kitchen cupboard/drawer and space in the fridge/freezer, clean and tidy.

Everyone is responsible for ensuring that rubbish is properly sorted in accordance with the current recycling guidelines, and that it is emptied daily and placed in the rubbish container.
In cases where there are multiple users, a schedule shall be set up showing who has responsibility for cleaning each week. The main tasks include keeping the rubbish cupboard clean and tidy, washing the floor, cleaning the ventilator, washing the fronts of the kitchen fittings, refrigerator and freezer and washing the stove/oven. If you will away in the week you are responsible for cleaning, it’s your responsibility to swap internally.

The Student Welfare Organisation will conduct regular inspections of common areas. In cases of inadequate cleaning, the tenants concerned will be given an opportunity to clean properly. If on the next inspection the cleaning is still found to be inadequate, the Student Welfare Organisation will arrange cleaning of the common areas at the tenants’ expense.
