Leaving the flat

Hey folks !

I will leave my flat very soon.

Is there anything to take care of regarding the handover ?
For example: is it a big issue that you can see the "left-overs" of the places where nails where ?
Or oily stains of blue-tack / prestik ?
Do you have any advice for removing that?; or also generally for that "big day" ?

Thanks in advance

Before we rented this place, we so many others.
All landlords said the same about when we would leave :

The walls and paint work will be inspected, where needed the wall be re-painted on your expense.

All depending how strict your landlord is but chances are he is going to charge you to clean/repaint the surface that is stained or dirty.

There are about 1 million threads about this topic on the forum. It might be a good idea to read at least some of them

Guess what titles like these may say:
READ ME FIRST - Apartments and Housing forum (THIS IS NOT THE PLACE TO ADVERTISE!)
or this one
Tips on Giving Back Your House or Flat
You don't have to read one million of them, just the ones who have the appropriate title (what are you interested in).
If you would have searched you would have find everything you needed.
It is so easy .

Re: Leaving the flat

Hi, I would recommend reading your lease to understand what you are obligated. If you have questions about your specific situation, consult an attorney. It is worth it, especially if you have a substantial security deposit.
