As per the local tenancy laws, a property owner must provide a tenant with a prior condition checklist for a property. In the absence of said condition checklist the owner bears the burden of proof of damages caused by the tenant to the leasehold premises. If a condition checklist signed by the tenant and owner/landlord is not signed at the start of the tenancy, the owner may not be able to withhold any monies from the tenant's security deposit for damages. It is important to generate a written initial inspection of the condition at the time of move-in which is mutually agreed upon by both parties.
Any owner/landlord who fails to provide the tenant with a written list of damages shall forfeit all rights to withhold any portion of the security deposit.
Our goal is to present detailed documentation of the condition of the property when a tenant moves in, so it can be compared to the condition when the tenant moves out.
We feel that mid tenancy inspections are important to review the condition of the premises to determine whether any preventative measures are necessary to eliminate the future need of maintenance and repairs.
