On the last day of the tenancy, an inventory clerk can meet the vacating tenants at the property to collect the keys and report on the condition of the property compared to when the tenancy commenced.
After the property has been handed over to us, we work our way through the property, detailing its condition in comparison to the inventory and check in report when they moved in. The inventory clerk will take a new set of pictures of defects or issues plus overview pictures of each room/area; to compile a check out report. The clerk meticulously details any damage, marks, cleaning or maintenance issues. Meter readings are taken and recorded then keys are recorded and returned to the landlord or agent. Major issues are reported immediately.
The report is then compiled to show the original check-in report with an extra column added to describe conditions at check out next to each item, itemising any defects to fully support any claim that you may have against the tenant’s deposit and stand up to scrutiny if it ended in dispute. The defects and issues are additionally compiled in a handy section at the bottom of the report for ease, along with the action relating to the specific defect.
