Our condition reports, whether they are periodic (with tenant) or move-in/move-out (without tenant), are considered visual reports. We will not be going through structural or mechanical checks with our agents.
The purpose of our condition reports is to catch the big-ticket items and common lease violations.
A typical condition report contains the following:
Overview photos of each room/area
Notes regarding water damage throughout the entire property
Check the status of windows and blinds
Checks under each sink
Updates on any shower, tub, tile and grout
Common lease violations, like the presence of pets.
Exterior notes, including landscaping maintenance checks
We also report the presence and location of all smoke and carbon monoxide detectors at the property.
