Re: additional costs after moving out

No, in short, unless the appliance is more than 10 years old.

Its perfectly normal for you to pay to have things like, steamers, washing machines, tumble dryers etc serviced and the certificate presented at handover.

It's nothing to do with cleanliness and more for calc' build up, and to make sure the machine is in good working order. Failing to treat washing machines etc to reduce calc' build up is your responsibility, and damage due to calc is not normally covered by warranty. If you check your dossier there will probably be 1 when you moved in, unless the appliance was new. If you have a fireplace you will need to have the chimney cleaned to.
it was new when we moved in as first tenants.
the agency tells me that this is standard procedure if changing tenants.
now I only don't want to accept this as there was nothing like this in our contract when moved in.
