carpet clause on new lease

I am signing a new lease with the new owner of my condo. The last item says that the tenant is responsible for having the carpets professionally cleaned. I find that a little weird especially since I am paying a deposit. Is this common?

My apt has that clause--we either have to pay for it to be done, or they charge us if they have to do it--so either way you're paying.

My last apartment required it, and it was in the lease. My apartment before that tried to sneak it in on my paper I signed saying that I was moving out, but I didn't do it because it wasn't in the lease.

Yep, when I rented from a property manager, I was supposed to get it professionally cleaned every 6 mo We rented a machine and gave that receipt. We spent so long cleaning that place when we moved, and they still charged us for cleaning. Pissed me off! That place was cleaner when we left than we moved in.
