A: The Mandatory Disclosure Form (MDF) is a property condition report filled out by the Landlord. The report is presented to prospective Tenants before signing the lease, so that they are aware of major defects on the property. Items listed in the MDF include cracks in the foundation, defects in the plumbing system (not leaking taps), and defects in the roof. These issues are ones that are typically not picked up on from simple observation, but informed through expert inspection. As such, Tenants are presented with the Mandatory Disclosure Form, but an ingoing inspection also takes place to note more patent defects, such as scuffed skirting or cracked tiles. Should a Tenant wish for an item on the MDF to be further inspected, this inspection will be for their account.
