Moving out of the property
Learn more about the final inspection of your rental property, and what is considered reasonable wear and tear.
When moving out, you have certain rental rights and responsibilities.
You’re responsible for:
- removing all your belongings
- leaving the property in a similar condition as when you moved in
- repairing, or the cost of repairing, any damage.
You’re not responsible for reasonable wear and tear, including:
- furniture indentations on carpet
- scuffed wooden floors
- chipped paint.
Your landlord or agent will carry out a final inspection of the property once it's empty.
The condition report you completed when you first moved in can help if you have any disputes about the condition of the property.
Your landlord or agent can make a claim against part or all of the bond if the property is not left in a similar condition as when you moved in. Find out more in the section Getting your bond back.
