A landlord/property manager is required to document any expenses that are taken out of a tenant’s security deposit; therefore, good documentation is vital. A move-in/move-out inspection with a checklist, pictures and/or a video is essential.
These Checklists can be Beneficial to the Property Owner and Tenant
The Move-In/Move-Out Checklist is a convenient, all-inclusive and reliable way to document the property’s condition. Tenants can benefit from a Move-In Checklist because any existing conditions will be predated to his/her occupancy. This checklist helps the landlord/property manager by reducing liability risks due to disagreements related to security deposit reimbursement; thus, protecting the value of the property.
