Tips For An Easy Property Turnover

Updated: Feb 14, 2021

Getting your home ready for new tenants or visitors is very important. It can affect how quickly your home will rent, have a hand in what tenant you get and even value of your home long term. The process can be stressful if you are living in another area and cannot do it yourself. It is easy to overlook something that needs to be replaced.


Check Your Home Spain can manage property turnovers for you. We know exactly what to look for once the old tenant has moved out and how to get everything completed in a reasonable amount of time. Here are some tips and tricks we have accumulated over time to help make the transition a smooth one.


Have a Comprehensive Move In and Move Out Form

Asking each new tenant to fill out a move in and move out form will be one of the best things you can do for yourself and your home. This will cover anything the agent and tenant notice in the home like scuffs on the wall, chipped paint or anything visibly broken or worn and keep you and property manager on top of maintenance issues. Photos of each room after move out and cleaning is also very helpful before new tenants arrive!


General Maintenance and Cleaning

This goes without saying, but getting your home professionally checked and cleaned before new tenants and visitors is a must. Giving the property to tenants in top shape gives them the expectation that it should be kept that way. Checking that appliances and fixtures are functioning, carpets are clean, furniture and surfaces disinfected. General maintenance like checking electrical outlets and wiring, light bulbs are all working, caulking of sinks/bathtubs, fixing broken doors and handles are also key. Don't forget about the outside of your home too! Pool maintenance, lawn mowing and weed pulling is always necessary.


Change The Locks To Your Home Regularly

When renting your home or having outside guests visiting, it is important to change locks regularly. You don't want anyone to have access to your home after they have moved out. Even if your previous tenants may have returned your keys, they may have forgotten copies somewhere.
