The property check out

The purpose of the end of tenancy check out report is to formulate an accurate assessment of the condition of the property when the tenants move out.

Failure to provide a check out report can prove highly problematic in the event there are any damages or missing items in the property.

There will be no documented proof  of the condition of the property and therefore it would be difficult to prove tenant liability, in the event of a dispute.

It is therefore important to have a tenant check out report which may be compared with the original inventory and schedule of condition, to avoid this situation.

Our check out reports are thorough and compared with the original check in inventory report. Suggested advice is noted on the report which includes comments on if an item or fixture requires maintenance, is damaged and requires replacement, or requires repainting or redecorating.
