 Please do not leave your rubbish disposal until the last week and your final bin collection. Experience tells us that there will be far too much for one bin load and the refuse collectors will not take away rubbish not stored securely within the bin. The bin-lid must be firmly shut with no rubbish left on street – failure to do this can result in fines from the Council. Please click into the link to request additional sacks from the council, if you feel your property will have too much waste to fit in one bin. These sacks will be the only additional ones to be collected.

Please also note they will be a fee of £35 to transfer your contract to your replacement tenant.

Please rest assured that the property will be cleaned as quickly as possible and will be carried out to a high standard. Houses left in poor condition by the outgoing tenants are of course prioritised. If your house has not been cleaned at the point of moving in, please keep your belongings tidy until the cleaning is completed.
