Rental inspection checklist

Download this rental inspection checklist when tenants move in or out of your property to document any damage.

A rental inspection report is a document used to assess the condition of a rental property after or before tenants move in or out. It ensures that the rental property is well-maintained and has good condition during, before, and after the tenants’ occupation, and that any repairs are covered by the responsible party.

  • Rental inspection report requirements
  • The purpose of the rental inspection report
  • Benefits of using rental inspection report app

What are the requirements of a rental inspection report?

Several areas are considered in the rental inspection report depending on the requirements of the tenant or landlord. A rental inspection checklist report usually includes the general condition, cleanliness, maintenance and repair, and other property and tenant-specific conditions. This helps both landlords and tenants to have a general overview of the property’s condition, cleanliness, and other important matters.

Who uses a rental inspection report and why?

Landlords, property managers, tenants, and property owners use a rental inspection checklist to document the rental property’s condition before or after tenants move in or out. It helps in listing any property damages before and after the period of the tenancy. This enables the landlords or property managers to identify the repairs or maintenance issues that are the responsibility of a recent tenant.

Why use a rental inspection report app?

With a rental inspection checklist app, the landlords, rental property managers, and owners can document the rented property’s condition when tenants move out or a new tenant moves in. Instead of a paper checklist, a rental inspection report app provides a quick and effective way to record and share the details of property inspections.

A customizable rental inspection checklist app ensures a streamlined and comprehensive inspection process, whereby the inspector can assess the property (and take photos and videos) with just their mobile device and instantly save it to the cloud. You can efficiently keep the records of all your rental properties without the hassle of handling bulk paperwork or running back and forth between the property and your office.
