Renting a house? Want to make sure you get your bond back? You need to carefully complete your condition report. Unfortunately, many real estate agencies and property management firms believe it is their job to find as many examples as possible of wear and tear around a property when a tenant leaves. That way they can claim part – or all – of a tenant’s bond on behalf of their client (the landlord). Your condition report sets out the condition of the property when you moved in. Every significant mark or scratch on the walls, every torn section or carpet, every loose floorboard, and every untidy section of garden. That way a property manager can never claim those things were your fault and should come out of your bond at the end of your lease. Luckily, there are experts capable of completing your condition report for you; often they are ex-real estate agents, ex-property managers, or condition inspectors from other fields. They can review the condition of the property you are moving into and provide helpful summaries and suggestions for highlighting instances of damage or wear. And the great news is that BorisDoes now has expert condition report Taskers and Businesses from around Australia, so you should have no trouble finding one in your area.
