CLEANING & DAMAGES:  A reasonable cleaning fee has been charged.  Laundry in excess of three loads or any other excessive cleaning required after tenant’s departure may result in extra charges that will be deducted from the security deposit.  In addition, any damage caused by the tenant or any charges for service calls for misuse or mistreatment of equipment (i.e. garbage disposal blockage) will be deducted from the security deposit but is not necessarily limited to the amount of the security deposit.  Normal wear and tear is taken into consideration.  Repairs and maintenance problems must be brought to the Rental Agent’s immediate attention or tenant will be held liable for the damages.
