For both renters and property owners, the move-in and move-out process can be taxing. This problem for renters is centered on transferring their personal property and establishing themselves 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 right, completing a move-in and a move-out checklist can be an intricate process.
It’s important to perform a detailed evaluation of each interior and exterior element, as well as document any issues with the condition when looking at a Lake Los Angeles rental home after a move-out. This means that each section of each part of the home must be looked over and a detailed checklist filled in. 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. Certainly, it’s important not to forget to check fireplaces, smoke detectors, appliances, cabinets, countertops, faucets, showers, plumbing, closets, and so on. From one area of the home to another, the whole list of interior elements must be checked, and details assembled so that if anything needs fixing it can be accomplished speedily.
As you work your way through the move-in/move-out process, it would be ideal for you to not fail to remember about a rental home’s exterior elements. The roof, gutters, siding, and garage door should all be checked, and their condition recorded. Sprinkler systems, landscaping, fences and gates, swimming pools, decks, patios, and all other exterior features need to be looked at in order to get an idea for the starting point of the arrangements for your next renter.
You’re taking a chance if you mishandle the move-in/move-out process is. However attractive it can be to hurry through in order to get a new lease signed on your Lake Los Angeles rental home, refrain from doing so. Keep in mind that doing so may hurt you in the long run. By examining each interior and exterior feature painstakingly, you can greatly lessen the risk of missing crucial maintenance and repair items.
