Prior to or on your move out day we will conduct a room inspection together with you. This is to determine if there’s any damage to the room/apartment. You will get a full bond refund if there’s no charge incurred for damage or cleaning. Otherwise, your bond will be refunded partially less the damage/cleaning charges. You will not be entitled to a refund if the bond is not sufficient to cover damage/cleaning charges and you are required to pay the balance before your departure.
