Are You Required to Do Rubbish Removal Before End of Lease?

In today’s society, contracts are common when acquiring or giving out something.  A good example is the lease contract. A lease is an agreement where one party (owner/lessor) gives an item to another (lessee). It is usually over a certain period. The item, in this case, is a house. When you lease a house, the contract is bound to expire, and there are certain things you are required to do. 

One of them is rubbish removal. Many people usually wonder if this is really important. Well, it is. 

Here’s why.


Two parties are involved when signing a leasing contract: the owner and the tenant. Therefore, it all depends on who the contract says should remove the end-of-lease rubbish. This is because any of the two parties can do it. So here, we will look at why it is important for the tenants (outgoing).

To Get Back Your Deposit

When getting into a lease of a house, most landlords ask you to set a deposit on top of the first month’s rent. The deposit is usually returned immediately your lease is over. Also, the house is back to its original state for you to get the deposit back.

In essence, it is a security if you do not return the house to its original state. Returning a house to its original state includes removing rubbish. That is why you need to do this to get your deposit back


As stated earlier, the landlords /owners can also remove end-of-lease rubbish. Here is why they must do an end-of-lease rubbish removal.

  • Great Outlook 

When you do proper rubbish removal in your house, it will obviously become clean and look great. This will go a long way in building your reputation in the real estate industry, which is what you need to get to the top. 

  • Increased Occupancy Rates

Everybody likes a clean and well-maintained place. That is why you stay ahead of the competition when you have a rubbish-free house. This is because you will always attract clients easily.

How to Go About End of Lease Rubbish Removal

If you want to enjoy these benefits, you must know how to remove the rubbish. This is because it is not a straightforward task, as many people may think. Basically, there is a lot that goes into your end-of-lease rubbish removal. 

There are two ways to remove rubbish depending on your preference. These methods are;

  • DIY (Do it Yourself)
  • Hiring a rubbish removal firm

Let us look at these two ways in depth.

DIY (Do it Yourself)

Here you choose to do the rubbish removal all by yourself. You need to set a few things in place to do this effectively. 

Here are some tips:

  • Always ensure that you have all your tools ready before you begin. 
  • You should then make a checklist. This will help you know what to do at every rubbish removal stage. It will also help you monitor progress.
  • Thereafter, choose a certain point in the house and work from there. While doing this, move systematically from one place to the next. In essence, do not jump from one place kitchen then all the way to another in an unorganised manner. This is because moving systematically will help things go a little smoother.

Hiring a Rubbish Removal Company

You can also choose to hire professionals to do your end-of-lease rubbish removal. Numerous benefits come with this. One of them is that you get to have great cleaning services because they are experts. You also do not have to lift a finger, which is convenient.


End-of-lease rubbish removal is necessary for both tenants and landlords. A tenant wants to get back his/her deposit. On the other hand, the owner wants a clean house to attract customers. All of these are impossible without rubbish removal. Of course, something that comes with such benefits is not easy.
