As a landlord or landlord’s agent you will be conscious of the problems of dilapidations due to wear & tear resulting from those not-so-respectful tenants. A very effective way to protect your or your client’s interests is for a move in – move out inspection of the property to be conducted by an independent, professional inspection company like Snag & Inspect.
The inspection can be tailored to reflect the requirements of the landlord, both in terms of breadth and depth of coverage, and the resultant reports will quite clearly demonstrate to the Tenant and to an arbitration body how the property has deteriorated during occupancy by the Tenant.
So you are about to agree terms on the lease of your next home, but you are concerned about a number of aspects of the lease details or the building, such as the inventory and the condition of some of the items, there are patches of mould on some walls or ceilings, there are light switches that ‘buzz’ when they are operated, but the landlord or agent is not really listening, what can you do.
You can have a move in – move out inspection done which will provide an independent assessment of the state of the property, and since Snag & Inspect are recommended by RERA, the contents of the report are less likely to be ignored.
