At the end of a tenancy, a check-out inspection is carried out, this important inventory records the changes and dilapidations that have occurred in the property during the tenancy.
Tenants are expected to return the property at the end of the tenancy in a similar condition to that at the start, with allowance made for fair wear and tear.
IAM Inventories apply reasonable everyday usage guidelines which are determined by such factors as the length of the tenancy, the different parts of the property and the quality of the property or its contents.
The check-out process is important to the tenants, as it is now they want to know if they will get all their deposit back. We recommend the check-out report is carried out after the tenant has cleaned, removed their possessions and left the property.
We compare the condition, contents, and cleanliness of the property to the inventory that was agreed during check-in. We will also verbally notify the instructing party if there are any problems that need immediate attention ie: broken window, leaking tap.
