  1. I moved into a flat last year with one flatmate. I was out of the area when the contract needed to be signed so the contract was posted to me and I posted it back after signing. My flatmate then went to the estate agents to sign the contract. However, I've just found out that they had him sign an extra clause which states that we will have the flat professionally cleaned and provide the receipts for this to the landlord when we leave the property. This extra clause says that my flatmate is signing on behalf of himself and me but I was never told about it by the estate agents, landlord or my flatmate. Is it possible for the landlord to deduct the cost of professionally cleaning the property from our deposit which we paid jointly) if we clean the flat ourselves rather than paying someone else to do it? I can't afford to get professional cleaners in and the flat is clean anyway.
