Hi See Wan,

There is usually a clause to indicate that tenant should clean up the property thoroughly prior to handing over the apartment to the landlord, with some specifically mentioning professional cleaning. Some landlords who maybe more particular may nitpick on the cleanliness, thus engaging a professional cleaning company to do the cleaning will likely be the better option, since any spots that are not cleaned properly, they are usually obligated to come back to touch up. This has happened to my cases a number of times where tenant was made to clean up the place further on their own, affecting their work schedule and etc as they were not ready to pay professional cleaners to do so.

I have been in the real estate business since 2009, with more than 14 years of experience serving the Singapore real estate market.

I am very active in the residential segment of Singapore real estate market, having transacted hundreds of deals from HDBs to private condominiums and landed properties in Singapore, and have handled many unique cases in sales and purchases as well as rental deals.

Over the years, I have also established a network reaching out to more than 9,400 expatriates, bringing my market presence to both in and outside of Singapore. This has created an additional exposure when I manage my client's portfolios, on top of the conventional on and offline platforms, where other estate agents are relying on. This has allowed me to consistently convert leads into results.

With an evolving market, where change is the only constant, I have also been investing in upgrading of my knowledge and skills sets to improve myself and meet the demands of current and future market.

Tenancy Agreement:

Cleaning Clauses: Carefully review your tenancy agreement for clauses related to cleaning and handover condition. It might specify:
General Cleanliness: The expectation for the unit's cleanliness upon your move-out.
Professional Cleaning: Some agreements might require professional cleaning at your expense.
Deductions from Security Deposit: The landlord may be entitled to deduct cleaning costs from your security deposit if the unit isn't returned in the agreed-upon condition.
General Practices:

Returning the Unit in Reasonable Condition: It's generally expected to return the unit in a reasonably clean and tidy state. This includes:
Removing all your belongings and rubbish.
Wiping down surfaces, floors, and countertops.
Returning the unit in a similar condition (minus normal wear and tear) as you received it.

Schedule a Pre-Handover Inspection: Before moving out, request a pre-handover inspection with your landlord. This allows you to discuss any cleaning expectations and identify any potential issues that might lead to security deposit deductions.
Clean Thoroughly: It's best to clean the unit thoroughly yourself or hire a professional cleaner to ensure it meets the agreed-upon standards. This can help avoid disputes and deductions from your security deposit.
