Basically my landlord is taking the piss and trying to bill us for 17 hours worth of cleaning after we moved out. I know this is ridiculous because even though I was first to move out a few days ahead of everyone else the house was already clean and my housemates spent that weekend cleaning. I mean really cleaning, doing the ovens, even wiping all the skirting boards down. My housemate said she was going to take photos because we suspected he'd try and fleece us for cleaning as he had already done earlier in the year. I suspect he just cleans the houses regardless of what state they're left in and then just bills the tenants. He's even trying to charge me for cleaning my room even though he inspected it himself when I moved out and I made sure it was spotless. I know we can refuse to pay the share but the trick is getting in touch with my former housemates to discuss it. All but 2 of them have become pretty elusive so unless we all agree then he's going to bill us. Is there anything we can do?
