Landlord Question and Answer Forum

Forum / Canadian Landlord-Tenant Laws & Issues / Security deposit question
Hello. I have a few questions regarding landlord rights and what tenants can be billed for. 1. Tenants left all their belongings on tree lawn. There is no bulk pick-up so we had to pay to have someone remove their trash/furniture. Can they be billed for the removal? 2. Tenants did not do any cleaning of the property. They left the toilets, tubs, appliances and floors filthy. Can they be charged for cleaning. 3. They also violated several clauses of the lease, such as removing smoke detectors and fire extinguishers. Their lease expired on 4/30 at midnight and my husband was meeting to collect the keys on 5/2 since that was the only time they could meet. They had entered the house and were moving out items on that day (two days after their lease expired). 4. There were also multiple damages to doors, cabinets, etc. We do have some before pics, but not of everything. We do have after pics of everything. We used a standard Ohio lease. So I am just making sure I am covered to deduct these items from their security deposit.
