As a landlord and property manager, I am sure that at some point, all of you have had to deal with messy tenants.
Receiving tenant complaints about dirty dishes, oily cooking worktops, dirty bathrooms full of hair and many other issues is not fun at all, especially when you are paying the housekeeper who cleans the property every week or two for it to be messy again the next day.
