Your end of lease cleaning checklist

To ensure a smooth exit from your lease Gold Coast Property has put together a comprehensive cleaning checklist.


One month before end of lease

  • At Gold Coast Property our lease agreements state that your carpets must be professionally cleaned before you vacate the property. Now would be the best time to organise a carpet cleaner to arrive the day before you hand back the keys – always remember to keep a copy of the tax invoice.
  • Gold Coast Property highly recommend getting a professional to take care of your end of lease cleaning. Most companies will offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee
  • If you had pets in the property throughout your lease, Gold Coast Property insists that you organise a professional pest spray. Now is the perfect time to organise them to come along with the carpet cleaner.
  • Lawns should be mowed in the week leading up to the end of your tenancy. If you don’t have a lawn mower we suggest booking a gardener to mow the lawns and tidy the gardens.
  • To save you the hassle of disconnecting all your utilities, Gold Coast Property offer a utility connections service. Simply email the property manager and we will organise it for you.
