Just do what's right. Clean everything and makes sure you pay what your owe. U should ghetto talking about those things in here.

Honestly I don't see the big deal....

So you pay 50k to pay for cleaning bed supplies. You do realize that most schools don't lend bed supplies and you would've had buy those out of your own pocket, right? Would've cost a lot more than 50k.

A 6,000 won difference that the landlord has asked for re: utilities is a pittance.

20,000 doesn't sound unreasonable for maintenance repairs either.

The only thing I wonder about is the recycling fee, haven't heard of it before. Maybe it's unique to your area?

i had to pay 50k for cleaning when i left my place. i'd imagine it's for the whole apartment, not just the bedding?

be happy, in australia you have to get everything professionally cleaned and it cost me over $300 *sigh*

also, maybe the recycling fee was for the whole year? why not just ask?

In apartments/one-rooms I have stayed in before there is usually a $30 or so monthly cleaning fee for the common areas (stairwells, lobby, lift etc.), which I paid independently of rent.

Your school will not shaft you, but it sounds like you are being overly concerned about legitimate charges that are, quite frankly, miniscule.

Why?

Isn't it obvious? Because people were being hostile to the OP by giving her advice.

I think it's good to hear about the different kinds of scams that people experience.  And even if it's 100 dollars.    Clearly there should be no surprises about fees or not getting your holidays etc....   They know but they are too ashamed to tell you up front.  Then there is this year long awkwardness, because the employer has plans to screw you over .  So for one year they are quiet about it;  it feels like a betrayal.   People who put up with it only contribute to the decline in teaching conditions here.  It's not about the money.  It's about the big f u at the end of working for them.
Bonzai!

just because OP didn't understand what the charges were for, it doesn't mean it was a scam
