Free Rental Move In Checklist

Are you starting a new lease? Then our move in checklist for renters will help you save time and effort on your move in inspection.

Whether you are a landlord or tenant, conducting a property inspection before the lease begins is essential. This is where our moving in checklist for renters come in.

Landlords: This move in checklist for rental property is a written record of the property's condition before move in. This is important for two reasons:

1. It's proof that you delivered the property to the tenant in a habitable condition that meets the local health and safety codes.

2. Making security deposit deduction for property damages. Tenants are never pleased when you make claims on their security deposits - This checklist (signed by both parties) shall be proof that the property damages were caused by them or their guests so they won't be able to dispute your deductions.

Tenants: This moving in checklist for renters is equally important for you.

You need to make sure that you are receiving the rental property in a habitable condition. If there are any serious faults that violate health or safety codes, you can withhold paying rent until the landlord makes the repairs. Other than noting down the faults in our renters move in checklist, you should also take photo evidence of all damages.
