Condition report—start of tenancy

    (1)     A lessor must, not later than the day after the tenant takes possession of the premises, give the tenant 2 copies of a report about the state of repair or general condition of the premises, and of any goods leased with the premises, on the day the tenant is given the report.

    (2)     A report under subsection (1) must be signed by the lessor.

    (3)     The tenant must, within 2 weeks after receiving the copies of the report mentioned in subsection (1), return 1 copy to the lessor, either—

        (a)     signed by the tenant; or

        (b)     endorsed with a statement, signed by the tenant, indicating whether the tenant agrees or disagrees with the whole of the report or with specified parts of it.

    (4)     If the tenant returns the copy signed but without further endorsement, the tenant is taken to have agreed with the whole of the report.

    (5)     To remove any doubt, a condition report for premises may, but need not, contain a list of items at the premises, other than goods leased with the premises.
