Cleaning charges after handover [ZH]

Dear all,

Does anyone have any experience how much can charge agency for handover not clean apartment?
Do they apply some hourly rate or squere meter rate. Or they arrange cleaning company and sent bill after?

Thank you,

It can vary wildly from one agency to the next. Your best bet is to clean it beforehand - either yourself or hire a professional with a guarantee clause that they will make it right if the landlord finds problems at the handover. Also consider joining the tenant's association (Mieterverband) and having someone present for the handover. These suggestions will of course cost up front, but likely save you a lot of hassle and money in the long run.

Re: Cleaning charges after handover [ZH]

Well, I actually asking, because I have to charge my untermieter. She left her room and common spaces dirty, left some her stuff around apartment (like books she decide to not take with her home or removing something and leave cut band all around balcony) and either broken glass in the shower room (luckily noone step on it).
I try to find some references for charges. I was hopping that might be there are something for cleaning same as for broken items.

I would like to be reasonable, either I'm very pissed off by such handover conditions.

Hopefully someone will be along shortly with a better answer and some links for reference. If I were in your shoes, I'd hire a professional to clean it all up and then send the bill to the untermieter. But it may depend on what your contract with her says as well.
