It is highly recommended for all Landlords to take advantage of our check in service. At the start of a lease it’s important that you obtain a signed schedule of condition from the Tenant. The schedule of condition will include an inventory list which will include any furniture items and kitchen appliances (if applicable). The report will document the overall condition of the property upon handover of the keys to the Tenant. The report will also highlight any damages or defects prior to the Tenancy handover. At the end of the tenancy the report will determine any deductions to be made from the Tenants deposit. A member of our Property Management team will attend the property on the agreed move in date to handover the property. The tenants will sign the completed report as acceptance of the condition.
Once the tenancy comes to an end the Landlord will have the chance to identify any damages caused by the tenants, the cost of these damages will be deducted from the tenants deposit. Any damages reported will be subject to the terms laid out in the tenancy contract. Most tenants will mention that the damages were there upon the commencement of the agreement but this can be cleared up with the detailed schedule of condition and photos to back it up. Espace Real Estate can help with any rectification work using one of our approved contractors.
