Handback inspection

Handback inspection

Before the end of the lease, we will arrange a handback inspection with you.

You can attend the handback inspection in person or appoint someone to represent you. You will authorise them to:

  • accept or negotiate repairs and agree on acceptable wear-and-tear
  • accept the return of the property
  • sign documentation.

You or your representative will sign an acknowledgement and release document. This formalises the handback and releases us from any continuing obligations. We will no longer hold an active lease on the property. We will then provide you with the keys to the property.
