My AST with my tenant is coming to an end on 20th February

Customer Question

My AST with my tenant is coming to an end on 20th February after 2 years. In the 'cleaning' clause in the contract I have mentioned that he needs to get the carpets professionally washed, all linens and curtains dry cleaned. It is mentioned that he must provide me with receipts for the same. He has duly signed everything. Would a clause such as this be considered illegal in the eyes of the arbitrator at the deposit protection service?

Its not illegal. It may be unreasonable, but that does not make it illegal. The tenant signed the condition and agreement. He did not have to but chose to and therefore is bound by it.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
