Preparing to lease your property

What is done after a resident moves out?

Gordon James Realty performs a move-out inspection of the property, usually within a day after the resident moves out. During the inspection, we compare the condition of the property to its documented condition when the tenant moved in, recording it with digital pictures and/or video.  We are experienced at determining the difference between “normal wear and tear” and damages that can legally be charged to the former resident. We follow all legal requirements for documenting deductions from security deposits and returning the remaining portion to the tenant.

Gordon James can also make recommendations to preserve the value of the property and decrease the vacancy time. We can arrange for one of our reliable contractors to complete any needed work to return the home to optimal, ready-to-rent condition quickly and cost-effectively.

We hope this covers it, but we may have missed something. If you still have questions, drop us a note:
