Is it legal to insert a clause in the tenancy agreement to prescribe that if at the end of the tenancy, the tenant leaves any items in the property the landlord will dispose of them. And also deduct the costs of disposal from the deposit. I have read advice saying that a landlord is obliged to try to sell and return any proceeds to the tenant. And then only a period of time. I think 28 days.
In this situation I would need to rid of any stuff left behind immediately so that the place could be marketed for rental as soon as possible. Just want to know if I can avoid this particular problem by making a tenant agree upfront to give up rights to any items left in the property and to make them liable for the costs of disposal
