STATE OF THE PREMISES ON ENTERING FROM THE TENANT’S POINT OF VIEW

YOUR CASE

  • You’ve chosen the ideal property to live in and you need to take care of the lease
  • • Should you prepare a state of the premises document before taking possession ?

YOUR SOLUTION

  • Is your future landlord a company or an individual ? What will be the length of the lease ? Which specific clauses should be included in the lease agreement ? The bailiff will be a reliable adviser for you. S/he will be able to give you useful advice and even draft the lease for more security.
  • Why risk having problems at the time you move ? As soon as you enter into the premises, as much for your comfort as for that of the future landlord, demand that a state of the premises document is drafted by the bailiff. It is often worth spending a bit of time at on it when moving into the property than a lot of time on it when leaving.
  • The bailiff, professional, independent and rigorous will faithfully make a detailed and precise report in the state of the premises document at the date of the handing over of the keys. Admit how comfortable it feels to say to say to yourself that in maybe 10 years’ time, the bailiff will still be able to tell you if there are two or three plugs in the kitchen.
