When we take possession of a property from owners, one of the most common things missed is the trash can. Many homes have an HOA that includes trash disposal as part of the HOA dues. That's perfectly fine, but the cans really need to be cleaned before giving us possession.
It's not always tenants who leave a shocker for the property managers. Even trash companies sometimes refuse to take things owners leave behind for the property manager to handle. Think about that... a trash company refusing to take back something they own. It then becomes our responsibility to clean the can, and haul it to the company ourselves
The best thing we can do for a new tenant is provide a completely clean property. When this is done, we can expect the same thing back from them because we have set a standard.
