What is the Check-in Report used for?

The Check in report records the condition of the property and its contents at the time of move-in. Commonly, the check in report documents a walkthrough of the property with pictures and comments. It is commonplace for both the landlord/agent and the tenant to contribute to the check-in report. The tenant(s) may be asked to sign off on the check-in report within 7 days of collecting keys.

Unless a tenancy agreement states otherwise, subject to fair wear and tear, tenants are required to leave the property in the same condition as when the Tenant moved in. The check-in report provides a baseline assessment of the property, which is used for comparison during the check-out inspection at the end of the tenancy.
