Rent-Up Checklist (by Leigh [TN]) Posted on: Dec 2, 2022 7:28 PM

Hi! We've been reading Jeffrey's Landlord's Kit book. He refers to a Rent-Up Checklist to have before you check in the tenants. We can't find that any where and tomorrow we will be checking in our 1st tenants. PTL!

Do any of you have time to tell us what you have on your Rent-Up checklist?

Thank you!!

I have a rent OUT list that outlines important issues that I go over after my move in sees the Rent Talk video.

Trash service, what is an emergency, importance of keeping utility serve current, clear now, guest and complaints are all covered. I also provide a property information sheet for each place. Its a pain to do the first time but it isn't hard to keep up after that. The place you vote typically doesn't change, the local grocery store, hardware store, maintenance man number, and police phone number
