Completion of your rental property

You will move and have canceled the rental agreement. We can imagine that sometimes you do not see the forest anymore. What will you expect when you move house? In which state must the house of room be delivered to the landlord? What should you not repair or remove? Everything at a glance.

When we have received your tenancy notice, the landlord of the administrator will contact you. We want the delivery of your home to run as smoothly as possible. That is why you are put off when a pre-inspection is done. A final inspection will follow at a later date at the time of the key handover. [Ap_spacing space = “15px”]

What does the pre-inspection mean? [Ap_divider2 topMargin = “15” bottomMargin = “15”]

A rapporteur makes an appointment for the pre-inspection in your home. It is important that you are also present at the pre-inspection yourself. At the pre-inspection you will hear from the rapporteur what you need to do to properly leave the house behind. This means that you do not have to carry out any maintenance work before leaving the house that you have to repair defects.

It is also possible that you have to cancel the changes made by you from the previous tenant. The rapporteur records everything in the pre-inspection report. This report was signed by the rapporteur and signed by the rapporteur. You will receive a copy of that report.

The pre-inspection you do not live in the house. Your contents are still in the usual place. Therefore, it is possible that the rapporteur can not detect all the flaws of changes. Also, something can simply be overlooked. You must be made for each other. If you have your practice if there is any damage, it is advisable to inform the rapporteur at the pre-inspection. Even if you are in doubt as to whether certain work will be carried out, you can ask the best and call the rapporteur to send an e-mail. In this way you will come across surprises later in the final inspection and confiscate with defects of changes that you also have to carry out of a maintenance that you also have to carry out.

What is the main rule? [Ap_divider2 topMargin = “15” bottomMargin = “15”]

The owner uses the usage rule of the use rule: u ud ud, ud ud ud, ud ud, ud ud ud, ud ud ud, ud ud, ud ud, ud. The prime state is the state. It goes without saying that the trusted custodian, the guard, the care provider and the guard are out of the field.

This main rule and the other rules apply as pre-treatment facilities, such as a storage room, shed or garage.

Two exceptions apply to this main rule.

Changes have gone into the landlord’s permission in the home are not afraid of taking possession of it. The agreements between you and the new tenant will be made in an agreement between you and the tenant.
There are also leases. You should think of floor coverings, net curtains, curtains, curtain rails, sun blinds and the like. This must also be mentioned. It is possible that there is a moment that your money is no longer retained tenant. Then an agreement can also be concluded. Sgp is no longer required

What does the final inspection mean? [Ap_divider2 topMargin = “15” bottomMargin = “15”]

With the rapporteur you will discuss the final inspection of your home. If possible, this appointment will be made with you at the pre-inspection. The rapporteur also draws up a report from the final inspection, which is signed by him as well as by you. The living space must be at the time of the final inspection and be clean. This also applies that that moment does not exactly coincide with the moment when you formally terminate the rental agreement. Only in the form of surgery and worth it to be made and to be removed from being removed.

At the final inspection you must also hand in the keys to the house. [Ap_spacing space = “15px”]

Control based on the pre-inspection report

During the final inspection, it is checked whether all activities have been carried out that are listed in the pre-inspection report. If this is not the case or only partially, then this will be included in the final inspection report. This also applies to items that you had to remove from the home. If at the final inspection it appears that repair work that you should have carried out according to the pre-inspection report has not been carried out, the lessor will have this work carried out at your expense. We point out to you emphatically!

New defects or changes

It is possible that during the final inspection damage, overdue maintenance, other defects or changes that you had to undo at your expense and that the rapporteur did not detect at the pre-inspection. If that is the case, it will be included in the final inspection report. It depends on the circumstances if you still have a short time to undo these defects. If the house has already been re-let, the landlord can not give you the opportunity to carry out work in the house after the commencement date of the new lease, unless the new tenant gives you permission to do so. If the landlord or the new tenant does not give you permission or if you do not make any or incorrect use of the opportunity offered, the landlord will be obliged to recover from you the repair costs of the damage, maintenance or repair work.

KRACHT Makelaars has prepared a handy checklist for you. This contains the most common activities that must be carried out by you before the final inspection takes place. This way you can take that into account at an early stage. The list is not exhaustive. The checklist offers you a guide to check the property.

Frequently asked questions

Can I get compensation for improvements that I have made?
The landlord is not obliged to pay you compensation for improvements that you have made. Sometimes, however, this is unreasonable and the landlord still has to pay you a fee. There must then be all the following requirements: – the improvements remain in the house, and – you have not yet (fully) recouped the costs you have incurred (for example insulation), and – the improvements provide the landlord with an advantage on. For example, he can ask for more rent or save costs. Does the landlord not want to give you compensation for your improvements, while the house has become more valuable? Then you can ask the judge for a ruling. In practice, however, these are often difficult procedures.
Can I bring the improvements made when I move? Yes, you can bring improvements in a rental home if you clear the house. You have a so-called road breaking right. You may therefore bring a parquet floor, kitchen or other improvements made by you from the house and take them with you. You must leave the house undamaged and in the original state.
Can I have any improvements made by the new tenant? A new tenant is not obliged to take over your improvements or pay a fee for this. If the new tenant agrees to this, it must reverse the improvements made upon delivery of the rental property. The new tenant is also responsible for maintaining the improvements. The acquisition can be recorded in an acquisition form.
Do I just have to pay a bill for repair costs? It is possible that you do not leave your rental property in a good condition. Then the landlord may pass on the costs that have to be incurred for the restoration. Certain conditions do apply: – the landlord must inspect the property in good time after cancellation of the rent and clearly state what needs to be repaired – the landlord must first give you the opportunity to carry out the requested remedial work yourself; costs charged must be reasonable. For example, the lessor may not charge the full cost of renewal if a damaged door needs to be replaced.
Can the landlord inspect my home when I cancel? The landlord may inspect your home if you cancel the rent. Usually there are two inspections: a pre-inspection and a final inspection. Every inspection is announced.
