Many landlords will require the Move In Checklist as a part of the process, just like signing the lease. But as a tenant, you should be glad because it protects you as well.

Taking the time to complete such a checklist carefully will eliminate misunderstandings when you move out.

  • Carefully noting any damage to the property will mean that you won’t be held responsible for it when you leave.
  • It’s also important to note any personal property (furniture, window coverings, and appliances) included in the property, so that you aren’t liable for the disappearance of something that was never there!
  • Be sure that the list is signed by both you and the landlord, and get a copy with all signatures for your file.
