Phoenix Property Management-Give the tenant a move-in inspection form.
With Respect to tenants who first occupy the premises or enter into a new written rental agreement after January 1, 1996, upon move in a landlord shall furnish the tenant with a move in form for specifying any existing damages to the dwelling unit.
Landlords and tenants often forget that there was existing damages to the property. A property inspection checklist ensures that tenants are financially responsible for damage that they caused and not responsible for pre existing damages.
After January 1, 1996 upon move in the landlord shall furnish the tenant with written notification that the tenant may be present at the move out inspection. Upon request by the tenant, the landlord shall notify the tenant when the landlord's move out inspection will occur.
This does not mean that you must schedule a time that is convenient for the tenant. On the other hand, you should not schedule that in intentionally inconvenient either.
Now, keep in mind you are not required to notify the tenant of a move out inspection if you have evicted this tenant for a material or irreparable breach.
