Repairs listed on the Entry Report
When you move in, you may notice items that require repair. You can record this on the Entry Condition Report. Making a note on the Entry Condition Report that items are not working and need repair does not automatically mean they will be fixed, you still need to ask the lessor, agent or provider to do the repairs.
Remember that the lessor, agent or provider is responsible for organising and completing repairs. It is your right to ask for repairs to be done.
Before you sign the agreement, if the lessor, agent or provider has agreed to do repairs or improve facilities write this down as a special term in the agreement.
If the lessor, agent or provider doesn’t carry out the agreed repairs or improvements this is a breach of the agreement. You can then follow the breach process described in this in this Tenancy Facts.
