The Checklist Every Landlord Needs The Checklist Every Landlord Needs Document Transcript

  • The Checklist Every Landlord NeedsOne of the most taxing activities tenants and landlords must do is to conduct the moving in andmoving out inspection of the property. The moving in "grand tour" of the property is done primarily soboth parties would be aware of the present condition of the unit. This way, the new tenant would knowhow he should leave the unit at the end of his lease period.This same grand tour is conducted just before the tenant hands in his keys and moves outpermanently. If the moving in tour was done for the benefit of the tenant, the moving out round ismore for the landlord. This activity is done to show the landlord that units condition is the same aswhen the tenant moved in (save probably for a few minor damages due to regular wear and tear).When this moving in and moving out tour is done, the tenant and the landlord both hold a documentwhich itemizes all the important parts and fixtures of the unit or house. As they go through each andevery nook and cranny of the house, they both tick what condition these items are in. This documentis called the move in / move out form.A move in / move out form is something that anyone can make. There is no need to consult with areal estate agent or with a lawyer because this is simply a checklist of all the fixtures in the house.You also only need one set of these, as the form you used during the move in inspection, is the sameone that will be used when the move out inspection is done.If you dont want to prepare a move in / move out form or would want to just follow a standard format,you can purchase and download this form from the internet. There are several real-estate relatedsites that provide users with various real estate forms and these can be downloaded by piece or bybulk or set, depending on the needs of the user.If you opt to download a move in / move out form from the internet, you are still at liberty to modify thecontents and format as you see fit as most of these documents can be opened using regular wordprocessing programs.real estate encino
