What happens if our tenant vacates, and leaves the property dirty or needing repairs?

Truckee Meadows Property Management will conduct a move-out inspection of the property, within 3 business days of the day the home becomes vacant. We then compare the move-in inspection with the move-out inspection, to determine what items are chargeable to the tenant. Repairs and cleaning that are the tenant’s responsibility are charged against the tenant’s security deposit. If the charges exceed the deposit, we will recommend either small claims action or collection action to collect the difference. Because we are very selective with the tenants we place, we have not once in 9+ years had to pursue collection of damages after a tenant moves out.
