The Entry condition report – general tenancies records the condition of the property at the start of the tenancy.
The form will be an important part of the bond refund process. It will help support the property manager/owner’s claim for compensation if the property has been damaged beyond normal fair wear and tear. It also protects a tenant from unsubstantiated claims.
Property manager/owner completes and signs the form and gives a copy to the tenant at the start of the tenancy.
The tenant must return the signed and completed entry condition report to the property manager/owner within 3 days.
The property manager/owner must return a copy of the signed and completed report to the tenant within 14 days.
Photographs and video can support what is written on the form.
Extra pages should be added if there is not enough room on the form.
