The move-in and move-out process can be a difficult task for both property owners and renters alike. For renters, this stressful chore revolves on bringing their personal assets and setting up in their new house. For landlords, however, the move-in and the move-out process involve a long list of interior and exterior elements that must be checked, as well as maintenance and repair tasks that must be completed, all in a short amount of time. If it’s being done properly, completing a move-in and a move-out checklist can be an elaborate process compared to just taking a hasty peek around the premises.
When looking over a Johns rental home after a renter moves out, it’s important to perform a detailed evaluation of each interior and exterior element, as well as document any issues with the condition. This means that each part of each room of the house must be inspected and a detailed checklist filled out. Walls, doors, trim and baseboards, windows, screens, carpet/flooring, and so on must be gone over carefully and information on needed maintenance and repairs collected.
Other interior elements that need to be checked and documented include window coverings, light fixtures, vents, and fans. By all means, it’s important not to forget to check fireplaces, smoke detectors, appliances, cabinets, countertops, faucets, showers, plumbing, closets, and so on. From one space to another, the complete list of interior elements must be looked at and the particulars collected so that if anything needs mending it can be done quickly.
As you work your way through the move-in/move-out process, it’s also considered a good plan to not fail to think of the rental home’s exterior elements. The roof, gutters, siding, and garage door should all be checked, and their condition recorded. To be able to get an idea of where to focus your preparations for the next renter, sprinkler systems, landscaping, fences and gates, swimming pools, decks, patios, and all other exterior features need to be properly inspected.
You never want to take chances with the move-in/move-out process. Nonetheless, it can be alluring to quickly go through it just to get a new lease signed on your Johns rental home. Be mindful that acting foolhardy can do you more harm in the long run. You can markedly shrink the possibility of missing important maintenance and repair items and giving your new tenant’s a great experience in the home by looking over each interior and exterior feature thoroughly.
