A rental inspection checklist documents the condition of your rental property, and keeps the status of each room updated.
This checklist can be provided to your tenant before they move in, giving them an opportunity to report any issues found in each room of your rental.
This checklist provides a record of the current condition, and helps protect both landlord and tenant from misrepresentations of the condition of the unit.
Once a tenant vacates, you can refer to your original copy of the rental checklist and determine if any excessive damage was caused over the course of their stay. Any repairs that aren’t normal wear and tear can be deducted from their security deposit.
