Lease Check Report
Lease Check Reports are carried out to record the condition of a property and ideally, are undertaken prior to taking possession of the property.
They are independent & objective reports used to identify broken, damaged or non-complying parts of a property immediately prior to the commencement of a lease.
A Lease Check Report includes a photographic record with observations, to minimise the risk of disputes about the condition of any area of the property
A written Report is typically available within 3-4 days following inspection.
When you lease property you take on strict responsibilities to maintain the area you lease and contribute to any shared repair costs of certain amenities and external maintenance.
Before signing the lease, it is important to know the condition of everything you are leasing or you may end up paying to have something that is broken or damaged fixed at the end of the lease. For example, cracked basins, damaged doors, defective hardware or water damaged cabinets can be costly to fix.
A Lease Check Report highlighting what should be excluded may you save many thousands of dollars in rectification costs. In some cases, we will advise that you ask the Landlord to replace or install damaged or missing items, such as fire safety measures, so the defects or damage don’t become sore points over the duration of the lease.
