The lease we signed was just a standard BC Residential Tenancy lease provided by the BC government.
According the lease I am expected to return the place in clean condition. However, if I am reading things right, he wasn't allowed to charge me a non-refundable cleaning fee on-top of my security deposit. It appears that the security deposit can only be half a months rent and then on top of that only a few certain fees for keys, nsf cheques, etc.
However, I don't plan on disputing the fee. My thought was that I would at least take out the garbage, vacuum, and do a quick surface cleaning. However, I was thinking of not cleaning inside the appliances, bathtub, balcony, etc overally thoroughly. Then again, I might just clean the place like I normally do to keep a good relationship and avoid any hassles. I guess I will ask my landlord what his expectations are.
