Everything about delivering a rental property:

Cancellation of rental agreement

You / tenant / surviving relatives / executor terminate the lease. Please take any possible into account notice period, this is in most cases 1 month. As soon as the rent has been terminated, the landlord / housing association will schedule an appointment for the preliminary inspection.

Pre-inspection / pre-recording condition

After the lease has been terminated, the landlord will schedule a preliminary inspection to check the property. During the preliminary inspection, the requirements that the home must meet are made known and included in the inspection report by the supervisor. The costs for the work to be carried out are identified and will be charged by the landlord/housing association unless they have been carried out on the day of delivery.

ZSM House Clearance can take care of both the pre- and final inspection with the landlord on your behalf.

Final inspection / delivery of rental property

The final inspection takes place on the day of delivery. During the final inspection, it is checked whether all work noted during the preliminary inspection has actually been carried out. Any work that is not in order during the final inspection will be carried out by the landlord/housing association. The costs of this will be passed on to you / the tenant / surviving relatives.

NB! The costs passed on by the landlord or housing development are very high!

How should a rental property be delivered?

Landlords and housing associations set strict requirements for the delivery of the rental property. One even stricter than the other.

  1. Deliver the home clean and empty

Takeover new tenant:

You may be given the opportunity to receive any new tenants in the home before the delivery date. The potential tenants can then not only view the home, but also view any items and furnishings that you do not wish to do anything with. Items or furnishings that the new tenant wishes to take over do not have to be removed if the new tenant signs for this. That can make a big difference, especially if it can prevent you from having to remove the entire floor, for example.
