The Power of Check-In Reports

A check-in report might be a basic formality for some people. But in many regions and jurisdictions, it's viewed as a powerful document in landlord-tenant cases.

Having a signed check-in inspection can be the deciding factor in:

  • Tenancy deposit disputes
  • Proving tenant negligence or damages
  • Eviction proceedings over property destruction
  • Taking action to recoup repair costs
Arbitration puts significant weight on these reports when tenants try to claim pre-existing damage.

This is a bulletproof check-in inspection that shuts down any "he said, she said" arguments in their tracks. If you took a rental car back with a huge scratch, but had pics from the end of the rental period showing it was pristine, you'd be off the hook for damage costs. Same deal for tenancies - that check-in report is your card for false damage claims.

Do Check-In Report Matter That Much?

You might be thinking - "My properties are pretty basic. As long as the big stuff is covered in the tenancy agreement, do I need an inspection for every little ding and dent?"

The short answer - yes! Even minor damages can become big headaches without documentation.

Just one check-in report showing the bathroom fittings were pristine? Case closed - you win and the tenant has to pay up. For a little bit of effort upfront, it's the ultimate insurance policy against spurious claims.
