Conducting a Proper Move In Inspection

Conducting routine, consistent inspections at your rental property is one of the most important ways you can monitor your home during the leasing process.

Here is Carlin Symmes, lead inspector at Realty Masters, discussing the importance of a move in inspection.  

We document the condition of the property one to two days prior to a tenants move in for many reasons. 

  • Most importantly, to ensure the home is ready for move in and that all necessary repairs were completed. 
  • Secondly, to have documentation needed in case there are damages beyond normal wear and tear when the tenant moves out. Photos and a written form are completed during every inspection. It is also important to note that you should have photos of the home in good condition also and not just photos of any discrepancies found. 

Not conducting routine inspections before, during, and after the tenants move out is one of the most common mistakes rookie landlords and inexperienced property managers make. 

A move in inspection is also valuable to a tenant.  Each of our clients are given a move in inspection to complete within 72 hours of move in. Make sure if you are moving into a new property, you document any issues with the home in writing and submit to your landlord upon move in. This protects you at move out! 

Let us know if you have any questions about the move in inspection process.
