Hello, we have been in our house since December 2012, when an inventory was finalized and we got a copy. Most, if not all things on the inventory are marked as bad. We asked what that meant, and we were told, after being in the property of 6 months, they will take care of replacing the poor objects, mainly carpets. Since June 1, 2013, we have been asking if carpets can be replaced (they are disgusting, covered in paint, etc.), the owner keeps telling us, “Yes, I can`t see it as a problem, we will send an email to the owner” or “we call the owner”.” Every time we hunt, we get shot. Where are we now? Any occupant in the property mentioned in the rental agreement must sign the inventory and date it correctly. All photos must also be signed and dated. Last month I moved from a property I had rented for 2 and a half years. When I started my lease, no `inventory` or `status plan` was provided, the house was old and needed an update, so no deposit was requested from the owner. After the extract, I discovered that the stand order had not been cancelled and that two months of rent had been transferred to my landlord`s account, and since then the owner claimed that the house had been left in an unclean state and that I had broken the oven, he took $324 of my money for cleaning the carpet and for a new oven.
The house was cleaned and “well done” when I went and was rendered in reasonable condition taking into account fair wear. I accept that the oven had not been cleaned (an error) and had agreed to pay the professional cleaning costs, but later they claim that I had broken the oven and that it now needs to be replaced. Can someone tell me if the agents need to check if the heating and water are all working when they do the inventory? It is important to note that tenants cannot be held responsible for “fair wear” and should not be marked as a sign of damage if the inventory is referenced during the final check. Even if the property is not furnished, an inventory should be created that records the condition of devices such as carpets, walls, sinks, etc. “If, at the end of the lease, there has been damage or if the cleaning standard is not the same as when the tenant moves in, without an inventory start, there will be no evidence that the magnitude of the differences occurs and that a deposit deduction is unlikely to be successful.” Usually, if you move into a property without inventory/check-in, you should take pictures and save all items that are damaged. I received my inventory from an agency and I felt it was missing in some areas, so I updated it and made it more specific to the individual real estate I rent. However, if you (as the landlord) and the tenant do a thorough inventory review and make changes, as you both think, and both parties make the changes to each other at that initial time, I do not understand why that would not exist in court. I recently paid an inventory company to do an inventory and I can honestly say that I could have done a better job and saved the $110.00 it cost me! Check all issues in advance on your inventory model, as well as the status of certain items or features.
If the couch is new, note. If you already know of a scratch on the kitchen surface, calm your tenant. Proof of photo and video can be very useful here to help you make direct comparisons. If you`re looking for a rental model, Portico Direct also offers a great version. An inventory should always be carried out, as it can be used to avoid further disputes over the condition of the items. The short answer is yes. Even if a property is considered non-furniture, there are still objects that can be damaged and expensive to replace, for example.B. sinks, carpets, condition of the walls, etc.
