Firstly, you should have the clause about drains, gutters etc in your AST, if you haven't already then make sure it is for future. Once a new tenant checks in, you should "inventory" the gutters and the drains so there is no argument, it is their responsibiltiy to keep them clean and if they don't you must charge them for any work needed to unblock them.
