When moving into a new rental, you typically have to meet up with your property manager for an initial walkthrough inspection to document the property’s condition before you settle in. It may be a hassle, but the best way for a tenant to protect their move-in deposit is to thoroughly and accurately document move-in conditions so that you won’t be charged for any preexisting issues upon move-out.
With the Tenant Move In app, your new property manager can invite you to complete own move-in inspections. You will receive a welcome email including your username, password, and links to download the mobile app, Tenant Move In.
Once you’ve installed the app on your mobile device, simply sign in with your username and password to begin a full move-in inspection. You can mark each detail (e.g., sink) in each area (e.g., kitchen) of the home as new (N), satisfactory (S) or damaged (D), and can even indicate if an action (such as a repair) needs to be taken (!). The inspection template is preset by your property manager to include all areas specific to your property. Once you have completed the inspection, a PDF of the inspection report will be emailed to you and to your property manager.
When the time comes for you to move out, your property manager will compare your move-in inspection to the current condition of the property and assess any damages that may have occurred during your tenancy. Protect yourself by performing a thorough move-in inspection!
