Move-In Checklist

Before and during the time of the tenant move-in, there are many tasks you need to complete to ensure the property is ready. One of the first tasks is to ensure the applicant meets the tenant criteria; this includes conducting credit checks and checking references.

property managementOnce the applicant has been screened and approved, the property must be prepared for the tenant. Allow the tenant to inspect the property for any defects so they are not held responsible at the end of their lease. Review the property rules, their contact information, and make sure the lease is signed and the security deposit is obtained before handing over the keys.

Move-Out Checklist

When a tenant is ready to move out, you will also need to ensure you check off every item on the list before they return the keys. Set a specific move out date so you can meet them to inspect the property for any additional damage that may have occurred during their lease period.

Do not return the security deposit until the inspection has been completed. Let the tenants know if any deductions will have to be made from the deposit due to incurred damages.
