1475_190412025905_506What is a Property Condition Report?

This is a report that is compiled at the commencement of a tenancy prior to your tenant moving into Plumpton rental property. This report outlines the condition of the rental property in Plumpton at the commencement of the tenancy and is used when the tenant vacates to ensure that the property is left in the same condition. This is the last inspection carried out by the owner or a property management company in Plumpton as soon as possible after the end of a tenancy, when the tenants have returned their keys. The Property Condition Report is used at this inspection and each item is checked off to make certain that the Plumpton rental property is in the same condition as when the tenant took possession. It is at this inspection that any items that need to be rectified by the tenant are identified.
