At the end of a tenancy, a comparison is made with the original inventory and check-in report. The check-out report details all significant changes to the condition of the property including cleanliness and any damage that may have occurred during the tenancy. Meter readings and forwarding addresses are recorded and keys checked back in. Unbiased recommendations for "assignment of liability" between landlord and tenant are made during check-out. E.g. fair wear and tear, cleanliness, general maintenance or damage/ negligence.
Why is a Check-out report necessary?
The check-out report is necessary at the end of a tenancy to ensure that prompt agreement can be made to refund any deposits due back to the tenant. The check-out report gives closure to the tenancy agreement.
