Using This Form For Inspections
The BC Notice of Final Opportunity To Schedule A Condition Inspection is a form issued by the Residential Tenancy Branch of the Office of Housing & Construction Standards in British Columbia. This notice can be used when both the tenant and the landlord were unavailable for the first attempt at scheduling an inspection.
This form can be used when the landlord or tenant is not available at the time and date proposed by the opposite party. This is the final notice to perform a condition inspection, which must be done at the beginning and the end of the tenancy.
This inspection is completed at these times so that both parties can examine and note the unique features and issues at the property and then assess any differences or damages that may have been caused when the time comes to determine whether or not the security deposit should be returned to the tenant.
Security Deposit Disputes
Having a condition inspection is in the best interest of both parties. The tenant has the right to have their security deposit returned at the end of tenancy should the property be in the same condition as when it was first rented.
The landlord, however, has the right to keep the entire deposit or a portion to cover costs they might not be responsible for because of damage the tenant has caused. The landlord may make a claim for the money if there has been damage:
- To the structure of the property,
- To the floors, walls, or fixtures,
- To the appliances and cabinets,
- Caused by a pet.
Any dispute that the tenant may have when a landlord wishes to keep some or all of the security deposit can be solved by comparing the condition inspections from when the tenant moved in and when they are moving out.
