I must be one of the lucky ones. I moved into a apartment on Robinson road a stop gap measure when I first arrived here from London. The place was spotless aired and sweet smelling. You could see your face in the parquet flooring.
I remember my partner saying as she ran a finger over the second floor railings no need for a maid we will be outta here before it's dirty.
I can't believe anyone would move into a dirty apartment. Call me naive but isn't this the landlords responsibility? Insist. Better still get someone from the office if you dont have a relocation company to do a complete check before you arrive.
I hope you get it all cleaned up to your standards. Im rather shocked about this.
Following your advice, I contacted Johnson, and they give me a quote of 15,000 HK dollars for a 750 square food apartment. I just moved in two months ago, so the apartment is not very dirty, especially I am a very clean person and all furnitures are new.
