The importance of your Property Condition Report

The Property Condition Report (PCR) will detail the condition of your home, noting any damage, the state of repair and condition of all physical aspects of the property, including any furnishings and appliances.

You must be provided with two copies of a PCR within a certain time of moving into your new home.

The PCR will detail the condition of your home, noting any damage, the state of repair and condition of all physical aspects of the property, including any furnishings and appliances.

Check this document very carefully. This is your opportunity to change anything that you think is not correct on both copies. Keep a copy of the changes made, and send a copy back to the landlord or property manager. If you don’t return your PCR within the time period specified, it will be considered that you agreed with everything listed on the report.

If you have any issues with the content listed in the PCR, discuss this with your landlord or property manager and come to an agreement.

Down the track, you will be given another updated report completed at your final inspection. If there has been any damage over and above what is considered ‘normal wear and tear’ during your tenancy period, you may be required to pay for the replacement or repair of such damage, and such costs will likely be deducted from your Security Deposit (Bond).
