Renting in Australia – Condition Report

When you do secure a rental property, ensure that you thoroughly go through the Condition Report for the property after signing the lease. Mark down any discrepancies on the form right down to the last detail – marks on walls, holes in flyscreens and stains on carpets. Take photos. Video everything. You only have a limited amount of time to send the revised Condition Report back to the Real Estate Agency and it also coincides with a very busy time (moving house) so it’s important you make this a priority.
