Prior to leaving the rental unit, there must be a moving inspection. You are welcome to find an allotted time for a preinspection with the contact person mentioned in the letter, in which we confirm the termination. Under this preinspection it will be determined how the lease must be delivered when moving out of the property as well as the extent of the repairs that needs to be done.
The lease must be remodeled during your rental period. This means that the taking over and moving out of the property must be done on the same day.
The remodeling therefore often happens in one of the following ways:
- The lease is remodeled by craftsmen prior to moving out the property
- Refurbishment that is required is agreed (depends on the rent contract wording to that effect), and the cost for this purpose shall be determined, where appropriate, to obtain discount on the agreed work
- The actual refurbishment is carried out later.
Small leases are often redone, while in the case of larger leases, it is agreed which refurbishment works are to be carried out based on the formulations in the rental contract.
During the moving inspection the property caretaker, manager or project manager examines the lease, and it will be indicated in the report, which works are to be carried out on the lease, in accordance with the lease contract.
At the moving inspection, the caretaker or project manager records the number on the electric meter that provides the leased property with electricity. If you have not read the meter and reported the figure to the utility company – then we will do it.
When the moving inspection is over, you will no longer have access to the lease, and therefore all keys/cards for the lease and the centre must be handed over.
There are taken pictures of the lease as proof of the condition of the lease when moving out the property.
When the moving report is filled out, you or your representative will get a copy. As a receipt that you have recieved the moving report, it needs to be signed by you or your representative – alternatively it can be forwarded by registered mail to the tenant.
If you do not agree to the listed works that should be performed on your behalf, we have to know this. You can do this by writing it on the report or send us a letter with the points you cannot accept and therefore object to.
When all bills on the refurbishment work is available, or it is agreed what planned refurbishment works will cost, then DEAS will prepare a settlement for the move. If the settlement exhibits a surplus, the amount will be settled by cheque or by transferring the amount to the account we have been informed of.
We will try to settle within 6-8 weeks from the date of the transfer, but with the moving out of very large leases it may take a while longer.
