Move-In/Move-Out Walk-Through Checklist

Landlords/property managers are required to account for any expenses which will be taken from a tenant’s Security Deposit for damages at the end of a tenancy. The best and most accurate way to assess what damages were caused by tenant, is to track the condition of the home from the start by using the ezLandlordForms Move-In/Move-Out Checklist.

The Move-In/Move-Out Checklist is comprehensive, reliable and convenient. At or just prior to lease signing, you should plan a walk-through appointment with your tenants. Every room is accounted for on the Move-In/Move Out Checklist however, if your property encompasses additional rooms not accounted for in the Move-In/Move-Out Checklist, additional sheets may be used. The important thing to remember when completing the Move-In/Move-Out Checklist is that the tenant(s) and you (or your rep) walk the property together and carefully visit every room checking every item on the list.

The form has a section for notes, and, of course, dates and signatures. These become essential if there is ever a dispute about whether or not tenant caused damage. Keep in mind that all damages should be accounted for on the form at the time of the walk-through, regardless of how minor they may be.

Of course, you will keep a copy and maintain in tenant’s file. The tenant should also be given a copy immediately following the walk-through. A copy should also be made readily available should they misplace the original.

The same procedure must be followed at the time of a tenant’s move out. Be sure to schedule the move out walk through appointment for just a day or two after the tenant actually moves out. Scheduling a move-out walk-through before a tenant actually moves out can prove fruitless as there are many things that can be damaged in a move-out. Any items, including trash left in the property after move-out should be noted on the Move-In/Move-Out Checklist.
