Welcome your new flat mate
As the new academic year in all the universities is starting soon almost every available TOAS apartment is getting a new tenant. In shared apartments with empty rooms this means that the current tenants will get a new flat mate.
Now would be an appropriate time to clean the apartment thoroughly as it is more pleasant for the newcomer to move into a clean and tidy apartment. To make sure the cleanliness meets the TOAS requirements, read our instructions for the final cleaning.
Please pay attention also to the tidiness of the apartment in general, so that the new tenant has room for his/her belongings not only in the bedroom but also in the common areas of the apartment. The newcomer will surely appreciate your effort.
If the flat is untidy when the new tenants are moving in, the new tenant has a right to complain to TOAS and TOAS will order cleaning from a cleaning company if necessary. In this case the costs are charged from the current tenant. This for sure is a bad way to kick off the new semester so show your new flat mate that you appreciate his/her presence and welcome him/her into a clean and tidy apartment.
