Upon the commencement of your lease, your Property Manager will complete an inspection and full condition report; this is also accompanied by photos of the property. You will be given the opportunity to check this report make any additions to it and return it to Release Property Management within 3 business days. This report is referred to at the final inspection of the property. It is therefore in your best interest to read through the condition report thoroughly, provide comments to us within the timeframe listed, and ensure you retain a copy in a safe place.
Periodic Routine Inspection
As managing agents of the property we are required to conduct regular Routine Inspections and submit a report to the Landlord. Routine Inspections are conducted 3 months into the tenancy and every 6 months after that. You will be sent a letter advising when this inspection will be conducted. Also included in this letter will be a tenant routine inspection report which we will require you to complete and sign. Should you not be home at the time of the inspection we can use our office keys to access the property and leave a business card confirming that we have completed the inspection.
Final inspections are conducted upon vacating the property. The final inspection report is closely checked with the condition report completed during the initial inspection to ensure that there has been no damage (beyond normal wear and tear) and that no fixtures have been removed (e.g. light fittings).
