we are completing tomorrow (we finally sold our flat to the sods who gazundered us and left us 10k short) Now, I promised myself not to trash the place/ play tricks etc. But am certainly not cleaning it before i go (when you pack everything away you realise the place is very dirty), but there are holes in the walls from our many painting hooks/shelves etc
Are they likely to replaster/redecorate anyway? If so I wouldn't bother. Obviously any big holes you should but fair wear and tear is expected. I spent ages replastering a wall after the removals firm bashed a wall on the way out only to find the new owner then removed that wall a week later .
See how you are for time. The odd hook/screw hole isn't a big deal. We meant to replace light fittings but in the end ran out of time on the day so left it till last but by then the packers had packed them ! Did a quick hoover and mop though.
Don't bother. I know most people clean and hoover everywhere, but the new movers-in will prob do this anyway. Holes in walls, so long as not enormous, are not a prob - after all what will they do? Run after you demanding the polyfilla?
I agree with whomovedmychocolate, even in filling them in its likely that there will still be an outline of your picture/mirror, even in a NSmking house. They will prob fill and paint. Leave the picture hooks or nails in and let them try and sort their picture/mirror frames out to what you had!!
