When it’s time for a tenant to move out, you want the process to go as smoothly as possible so that new tenants can be screened and onboarded without delay.
Much of the move-out process is ensuring that the tenant adheres to the contract and leaves you with as little to do as possible. While you, of course, cannot control everything, a clear process coupled with frequent communication helps enable your tenants to do their part and prepares you to deal with the situation in the case that they do not fulfill their contractual responsibilities. That is why we’ve put together this tenant move-out checklist for landlords.
Run this checklist every time a tenant is moving out to efficiently prepare the property for the next tenant while making sure you do not incur any lost revenue or have to face a messy legal situation.
