Check Out Report

Check Out ReportThe check-out report happens to be the opposite of the check-in report. The check-out report is usually compiled and prepared at the end of the rental agreement or leasing contract. The document is an integral and inseparable part of the rental agreement as it describes and confirms the current state and content of the rental property as matched against the initial landlord inventory report and the check-in report prepared by the independent third party.

The purpose of the check-out report is to determine if the property has sustained any damages beyond the expected daily wear and tear during the course of the rental agreement. The report will also indicate whether or not certain items or appliances have been replaced or are missing altogether from the property. The check-out report also looks after the interests of both parties involved in the rental or lease contract and aims at mitigating the rental risk.

The report is also used to settle any potential future disputes and disagreements without having to go to court as it describes the exact, current state of the property and lists its contents. The document, which is usually prepared and signed just before the end of the lease or rental contract is also important for the end of tenancy cleaning of the property and the rental deposit of the tenants. In order for the check-out report to become a valid, legally recognized document it has to be signed by all parties of the agreement, just like any other type of property report.

The check-out assessment and reporting is done using written and photographic material and evidence of the property and its state and condition upon end of tenancy. The check-out report is matched against the check-in report to determine and single out any issues or damages which may be the cause of a serious dispute. Again, the assessment, compiling and reporting work is carried out by high qualified, professional reporting clerks serving as witnesses and independent third parties to the whole rental agreement and its successful conclusion. All reporting clerks are AIIC certified.
