It is stated in the rental contract....
Yes, it is. I am not very familiar with your rental legislation, and the contract was made by a letting agent.
Thus which jobs am I not responsible for? Chimney sweep, septic tank, garden (hedge cutting etc.)? Do I have the right to do my own carpet cleaning, or can a professional receipt be required?
Thank you very much, your answer was really helpful. How about garden maintenance like hedge cutting etc.? My job, or the landlord's?
