What to do when Tenants Leave their Belongings at your Property

By |Published On: 14th February 2018|

This article is an external press release originally published on the Landlord News website, which has now been migrated to the Just Landlords blog.

Although most tenants look after their rental homes, some have different ways of living that can cause issues when they move out, to say the least!

If the tenant has left a lot of their belongings at the property when they’ve moved out, the landlord will want to get it cleared as soon as possible to avoid a tenancy void period where rental income will be lost. Similarly, if the landlord wants to sell the property after this tenancy period, he or she may need a house clearance service to clear the property completely of old rental furniture, fixtures and fittings.

In extreme circumstances, the landlord may find that a tenant is a hoarder, in which case, once they have left or been evicted, action may need to be taken for hoarder house clearance, which is more specialist. Hoarders collect and save an excessive number of items, often things that most of us would consider junk, like old newspapers and magazines, broken electrical equipment, piles and piles of old clothes and even, in extreme cases, food and biohazardous bodily waste, which then constitutes a real health hazard and requires specialist clearance.

The good news is that Just Clear House Clearance can help in any of the above situations. Just Clear is a multi award-winning property clearance company working with landlords all over London and throughout the UK. They offer a great value, award-winning, reliable, friendly service. Moreover, the fundamental goal at Just Clear is zero-to-landfill, making sure that reuse (now 42% of their waste turnover) and recycling is prioritised in every job they undertake.
