If you are reading this page as an investor with a rental property in Newcastle or Lake Macquarie, it is highly likely you have had a tenant in your property who may not be leaving your investment in the clean condition you expect before renting it out to another tenant or returning to the home yourself.
Of course, the level of cleanliness of a rental property is crucial for both landlord and tenant. As a landlord, ensuring your home is in top-top condition at the start of the rental period will help ensure this is the state the property is returned in. A beautifully prepared and presented home will also often achieve higher rental return and a greater number of high-quality applicants.
When a tenant is vacating a property at the end of their term, the condition of the home is required to be similar to the condition it was provided in at the start of the term - as documented on the ingoing condition report and accompanying photos. If not, the rental bond paid at the start of the tenancy can be withheld to recover costs of cleaning and repairs which may be required to return the property to its previous condition.
