In India, when you move out of the apartment, normally you are not charged any cleaning fee. Some property owners insist on it and one has to go by what has been settled at the time of signing of the contract. If you are in India, normal “wear n tear” is borne by the property owner, but you will be liable for any damage. There is no regulation governing the same but the owner can only charge directly applicable and reasonable damage. The following are examples of what damage you will be responsible to pay for:
- Holes and hooks in the wall for pictures/drawings.
- Damaging, staining of walls requiring repainting.
- Scratches on the floor with heavy furniture.
- Damage to furniture and fixtures like TV, washing machine etc.
Even if the above are by accident, you will be charged for repair upon move-out.
One is legally bound to return deposits at the time of vacation and the property owner cannot unreasonably over charge for damages and cleaning (if applicable). The damages and cleaning fee will be deducted from the deposit if any, one has to pay for damages that have happened and are not caused by "wear n tear". Normally the terms of the lease mentions penalties in the form of interest and continuing to hold possession in case of delay in payments of security deposits.
