Your move-in inspection

Your move-in inspection will be used at the end of your lease to compare the move-in and move-out conditions of your home. It's important to complete this thoroughly and in detail to ensure you receive your maximum security deposit refund at the end of your lease!

We always recommend completing this with your landlord present! It helps make sure you're both on the same page about the condition of the home at move-in. If your landlord is not available, ask them if they're comfortable with your completing it on your own or see if they have a trusted agent who can be present on their behalf.

Once your lease is signed, schedule a time with your landlord to complete the move-in inspection, either before move-in or within 48 hours or move-in.
