New to having to clear your home? Never done this before? Not sure what to look for in a house clearance team? Don’t worry, we’ve got your back.

There are so many unlicensed house clearance companies and ‘Facebook fly-tippers’ out there. It can sometimes be hard to know which companies are genuinely professional and which aren’t. That’s why we’re dedicating this week’s article to help you understand what to look for in a professional house clearance team.

We’re telling you what you can expect from us, Clear and Clean House Clearance, as a gold standard.

1. A friendly service

We value each and every one of our customers. You can expect a warm, friendly, genuine team who are a pleasure to work with. We're warm, genuine, trustworthy and will put your mind at ease.

2. A personal service

We appreciate that no 2 individuals are the same. The same can be said for house clearances. We provide a unique, person-centred approach to all house clearance projects. The project is focused around the needs of yourself and this will form the base plan of how we conduct the project.

We work on small to large house clearances, end of tenancy clearances, deceased estates, hoarders’ properties, garden/garage clearances, nursing home clearance and more. This hopefully gives you the confidence that we’re equipped with the house clearance and personal skills to complete your project to exceed your expectations.

3. Fully licensed

This is one of the most important points. We’ve written before about the risks of using an unlicensed house clearance company. If your belongings are fly-tipped and there is documentation that leads back to you, you could face up to a £50, 000 fine/12 months’ prison sentence.

4. Insured

Again, this is an important one. A professional house clearance company should have public liability insurance. This will protect them (and you) against any accidents/damage during the project.

5. Proper disposal of waste/ethical values

We always ensure that we do more than our bit for the environment. One of the key parts of our clearance process is segmentation. After this, we use our relationships with various charities, recyclers, upcyclers and scrapyards to ensure the avoidance of landfill. That’s our ethos.

6. Uniformed staff

A lot can be said for a professionally dressed team. Our team always look smart, consistent and are proud to wear their uniform. The uniform ensures that all employees are equal and equipped to undertake their job to the highest standard.

7. Not just a ‘man with a van’

We think the most important thing to recognise when you’re hiring a professional house clearance company is that we aren’t just a ‘man with a van’. We’re an ultra-professional service, with years of experience, who very much pride ourselves on the personalised experience we’re able to provide to every single customer.

We’re not just there for the removal, we’re there for the initial assessment/quote, segmentation, removal of items and everything in between.

Tenants leave rental properties for many reasons. Many leave on good terms when it’s time to move on, or their circumstances have changed. However, unfortunately for many landlords, there are often tenants who leave on bad terms, for reasons such as rental arrears, noise/nuisance or simply keeping the property in a bad way and not abiding to their tenancy agreement.

Sadly, we work for many landlords who are in the latter position. Normally, the tenant will have been evicted, rent hasn’t been paid and the property is in a dyer state. Fortunately for those who find Clear and Clean House Clearance, we are experts in this sort of work and can take so much time and stress off landlord’s hands, getting the property in the perfect condition to rent out again.

Here is our 4-step guide on sorting an end of tenancy property when the tenant has been evicted:

1. Speak with your estate agent

If you haven’t already evicted your tenants, it’s a good idea to get in touch with your estate agent who (dependent on your agreement with them), should be able give you advice and issue the eviction notice for you.

If you’re a private landlord, you’ll need to be careful to ensure you’re abiding by the correct legal processes. Find more information here.

2. Consult a licensed House Clearance company

Clearing a property at the end of any tenancy can be stressful, especially if the tenancy has ended badly including mess. Clearing time to sort the property following a bad tenant can be difficult and stressful. So, why not get a professional to sort it for you?

In most circumstances, if the tenants are being evicted due to property damage, lease violation etc., the notice period can be as little as 14 days. This gives them 2 weeks to obtain their items. Giving you time to do your research, get some quotes and book the best house clearance company for you.

3. Time to clear the property

Once the tenant has left the property, it’s time to start clearing. This can be a daunting task if you’re tackling it alone. However, if you’re using a professional house clearance company such as ourselves, you won’t have to worry about anything.

We will arrive on the agreed date, head into the property, segment the items left behind and clear them from the property. You also have the assurance that we will dispose of/donate all items accordingly. We work closely with scrapyards, charities, up-cyclers, recylcers etc. to ensure that we are contributing to the reduction of landfill.

4. Getting the property back to re-rental state

Once all of the leftover belongings are removed, it’s time to get the property back to pre-rental condition. Again, this can be time-consuming and involve a lot of hard work.

If you chose to work with Clear and Clean House Clearance, this stage would include cleaning the carpets, bathrooms, kitchen, cupboards, skirting boards and more, to a professional standard. If the walls are in a bad condition, we can even liaise with decorators to re-paint them.

Once this is complete, we’re ready to hand the property back over to you and your estate agent to start the rental process again. It’s as easy as that.

We take great pride in our work and ensuring all of our customers are more than satisfied. If you’re dealing with an end of tenancy property by eviction at the moment and don’t know where to turn, get in touch with us for a friendly, no obligation quote and we’ll see how we can help you.
