    Default Hand-over

    1) During the last day of the tenancy for hand-over, do I need to be present or leave it for my agent to do it, my agent said that if I don't want to go, never mind, he can handle for me?
    2) Do I do the checking of the unit after the tenant leave (hold their deposit and refund later) or check on the same day of the hand over?
    3) If I have already got a new tenant immediately after the last day of the hand-over, do I still need to clean the house for the new tenant. Actually, I asked the new tenant to come in 2 days later so that I can clean the house.

    1) up to you whether you want to go...if there got dispute or issues/disagreement can discuss/resolve on the spot...if you have good agent then can probably leave to him/her
    2) check when tenant is present...got to sign a form for the handover process...once signed cannot (and not fair) to raise anymore issue when tenant is gone...must return deposit within stipulated timeframe mentioned in your contract...if no problem and your tenant is always prompt for rent payment...then will be good manners to return deposit immediately through cheque or internet banking
    3) basic courtesy to arrange for a professional cleaning so your next tenant can move in with peace to a clean and fresh home

    hi Irisng


    guess you got the answers already.

    i recently just took back a unit that has been rented out for 7 years..

    i was there at handover...not necessary really as my agent can handle and protects my interests.

    out going tenant cleaned up well... so i just locked up just to make sure no dust etc.

    but usually as a good practice, do a thorough cleaning , touch up paint if needed, etc.

    it will make handing over to new tenant much smoother....

    be sure to take back all the appliances manuals....


    depending on house type, you might need to change the lock.

    for condo ... easier ...

    for landed, i always reprogram the digital lock, and change a new pad lock for the rear gate.

    Thank you so much for the valuable reply. Normally what are the things to check during the handover? If the new tenant doesn't want some of the furnitures eg bed or dining tables and chairs, how do you all dispose off?

    If you find that your solid surface top is stained with curry or other marks, do you just leave it, clean it yourself or get professional to clean, then claim it from the previous tenant?
