I can’t thank them enough for their proficiency in helping and consulting with us in the hand over which went smoothly with no charges levied. I highly recommend them, Andrew’s skill is in finding a more efficient way, it’s a credit to him and APT.”

Property clearance is more than just removing waste and debris; it’s about ensuring safety, hygiene, and a fresh start. It plays a pivotal role in:
Safety: Property clearance rids the space of potential hazards and ensures a safe environment for the next occupants. Hazardous materials left behind can pose significant health and safety risks.
Hygiene: Waste and debris left unchecked can attract vermin and pests, leading to property damage and health hazards. Property clearance eliminates these risks.
Appearance: An unkempt property can deter potential buyers or tenants. Clearing waste and debris enhances the property’s appearance, making it more attractive to prospective occupants.
Property Value: Cleared and ready-for-occupation properties are often more valuable than those needing extensive work. Property clearance can boost your property’s value.

The cost of house clearance can vary widely depending on several factors, including:
Size of the Property: Larger properties with more rooms and possessions will generally cost more to clear than smaller ones.
Amount of Items: The volume of items that need to be removed will affect the cost. A property with a lot of furniture and belongings will be more expensive to clear.
Type of Items: The nature of the items also matters. Hazardous materials or specialized disposal requirements can increase costs.
Accessibility: If the property is easy to access, the clearance may be more straightforward and less expensive compared to a property with limited access.
Location: Regional differences in labor and disposal costs can impact the overall price.
Additional Services: Some clearances may require additional services like cleaning, disposal of hazardous waste, or specialized removal of certain items, which can add to the cost.
As mentioned, APT provides a full quotation to assess the extent of the work and determine the specific cost for your house clearance needs. This allows for a more accurate estimate based on the unique circumstances of the clearance.
House clearance typically involves the systematic removal of all items and debris from a property to prepare it for a new tenant or owner. Here’s how it generally works:
Assessment: A professional house clearance service, like APT, begins with an assessment of the property. This assessment determines the scope of the clearance, including the size of the property, the volume and type of items to be removed, and any special requirements.
Quotation: Based on the assessment, the house clearance service provides a detailed quotation outlining the estimated cost and the specific services to be provided.
Scheduling: Once the quotation is accepted, a schedule is arranged for the clearance. This includes setting a date and time for the work to begin.
Clearance Process: On the scheduled day, the clearance team arrives at the property. They use specialized cleaning products, cleaning solutions, and equipment to systematically clear the property. This includes removing furniture, appliances, personal belongings, and any other items.
Sorting: During the clearance, items are typically sorted into categories. Some items may be suitable for reuse or recycling, while others may require disposal.
Disposal: Items that are no longer needed or cannot be reused are disposed of properly. This includes ensuring that hazardous materials are handled and disposed of in accordance with regulations.
Cleaning: Once the property is cleared of all items, it is thoroughly cleaned to prepare it for the next occupant. This may include deep cleaning, sanitization, and removal of any remaining debris.
Final Inspection: A final inspection is conducted to ensure that the property meets the required standards and is ready for occupation.
Handover: The property is then ready to be handed over to the new tenant or owner.
House clearance services are often used in situations such as end-of-tenancy clearances, preparing a property for sale, or addressing issues like dilapidations. Professional house clearance services have the expertise, equipment, and resources to efficiently and safely carry out these tasks.
“Dilapidations” refers to the breaches of the repairing and maintenance obligations of a lease on a property. In the context of property management and lease agreements, dilapidations typically involve the condition of the property at the end of a lease term.
If a tenant fails to properly maintain or repair the property as per the terms of the lease, they may be liable for the cost of rectifying these issues, which are known as dilapidations.
These costs can include repairs, refurbishments, or even a financial settlement to the landlord to compensate for the property’s diminished value. Dilapidations can be a subject of dispute between landlords and tenants, and they are often addressed through negotiation, arbitration, or legal proceedings.
