What is a Move In Checklist?

A Move-In Checklist is a document used to list any damages, defacements, or out-of-order aspects of a rental property before the tenant moves in. Move-In Checklists help document any pre-existing issues with the rental property and serves as a record to protect against any future legal claims.

Move-In Checklists are often completed during the initial walkthrough with both the landlord and the tenant and may also be referred to as Walkthrough Checklists or Inspection Checklists.

When to use a Pre-Rental Inspection Checklist:

  • You're a landlord who has a new tenant.
  • You're a tenant who just moved in.
  • You manage properties.
