The moving out date is the
next weekday following the ending date of your tenancy agreement, on which the
keys of the apartment must be handed over to DAS by 12:00 in the afternoon. If
the ending date of your agreement is on a holiday or on Saturday or Sunday, the
keys must be handed over on the next working day by 12:00 in the afternoon.
Moving out- and final cleaning
Have you ever had to move into
an apartment in which the sink has been covered in soap residue and the stove
knobs have been covered in a sticky substance the chemical formula of which
many glue factories would be ready to pay for? DAS is very eager to make sure
that no one would have to experience a situation like this.
Make the next tenant happy by
leaving behind a fresh and clean apartment!
The main cleaning tasks:
- empty the
apartment, the storage locker and balcony of your belongings and trash
dust, trash, magazines etc.
- wash away
The apartment must be handed
over in a good and clean condition. More guidelines you’ll find from the
moving-out instructions and cleaning guide. Remember that tenants living in a
shared apartment are responsible for cleaning the shared areas together.
The tenant must leave the
apartment and its shared areas in clean and good condition upon moving out. A
final cleaning must be done according to the provided guidelines, which is also
an attachment to the tenancy agreement. If the cleaning is not done properly,
the lessor has the right to order a cleaning from a cleaning company and deduct
these reasonable costs caused by the cleaning from the tenant’s deposit without
hearing the tenant.
Alternatively, the lessor can
deduct a penalty fine from the deposit to cover for the cleaning expenses as it
is mentioned in the terms of DAS tenancy agreements.

must be done during the final-/ moving-out cleaning:

Remember to tell your flatmate
about your moving-out date well in advance and agree on cleaning the shared
spaces. In shared apartments, both the staying and moving out tenant are in
charge of cleaning the apartment.
In shared kitchens, the person
moving out empties and cleans the cupboards and shelves s/he has been using.
The shelves and cupboards of the other tenant need not to be cleaned. In other
parts the kitchen must be cleaned either alone or preferably with the other
tenant and the parts must be clean when the inspection is done. The stove,
fridge and other machines and equipment must in all cases be cleaned
