Information

 

Before you sign a lease or rent an apartment, take a look around with the landlord or maintenance staff. Take a move-in check list and mark any damage to the apartment. Sign and date it and have the apartment owner or agent sign it right after your walk through. If you decide to rent the apartment, you'll have noted any damages and won't be charged for repairs of those items when you move out.

The Move-In Check List is below. Here's a link to a Move-In Check List you can print and use.
