Your Housing Officer will visit you before you leave to consider various matters with you.
When you leave the property, you must clear all your belongings from the property including any items in the loft, gardens or outbuildings. If you rent a garage and are terminating the licence, the garage must also be cleared. If you leave any items at the property without the Council’s agreement, the Council will clear them and charge you the cost of removal. Any items left at the property cease to be your property and become the Council’s property.
Any rubbish which is left at the property will be removed and the costs recharged to you.
When you leave your home, please ensure that the property is left clean and in a good state of repair and decoration. All cupboards should be swept out and surfaces washed down and the bathroom and lavatory must be thoroughly cleaned. Any damage to fittings in your home should be made good before you leave. You will be charged for the cost of any damage not made good.
The property should be cleared of floor coverings unless permission to leave them has been given by the Council.
If work on the property has to be carried out because you have failed to make the necessary repairs, you will receive a bill itemising the work and the costs.
