Tenancy Check-Out Report
During the Check Out, the inventory clerk will check through the original Inventory Report and Check In Report, recording any new marks, damage, missing items and the cleanliness of the property. Photographs will be taken of each room and of all significant marks and damage and will be included in the new Check Out Report. Meter readings will be taken and all keys taken from the tenant are listed.
Check out reports form the basis of the majority of landlord claims. A claim is likely to be viewed more favourably if it has been compiled by an independent inventory clerk, who remains unbiased – particularly when going into arbitration under the proposed Tenant Deposit Scheme, or in a court of law.
