Inspection Guide to Consider Before You Rent
When viewing a rental unit, be prepared to inspect for problems or damages. Take note of how well the property has been cared for and how the landlord or owner showing you the unit responds to your questions, concerns or requirements. Laws require landlords to repair some problems, however, if the repairs needed are not required by law, it is up to you to reach an agreement with the landlord before renting the unit. Write a description of all problems that exist before you move in and ask the landlord to sign an agreement that all or certain problems will be corrected by an agreed upon date. This procedure will help to avoid disagreements about your responsibility for pre-existing problems. It will also reduce disputes over the landlord using your security deposit to repair pre-existing problems.
