. The Tenancy Act states that tenants are required to leave a property "reasonably clean and tidy." Landlords and tenants sometimes have a different take on what is "reasonably clean and tidy". The best you can do is help guide your departing tenants towards your preferred level of cleanliness. The best way to initiate this is with a Cleaning Guide.

We have recently noticed a good number of TINZ members returning to TINZ after trying a "cheap" alternative. The common theme is the lack of data compared with a TINZ check. What is the cost of just one bad tenant slipping past your 'fence' and into one of your properties.
Also consider that if you make use of the simple lodgement system on TINZ, which credits your account, TINZ is incredibly cost effective compared with anything else. You get $3 credits for lodgements plus $1 credits for photos. Learn how simple it has become to make lodgements on TINZ.
