Full Answer

A checklist ensures that the prospective tenant has asked all the right questions. Typical questions address issues such as the monthly cost of the rent, when it's due each month, whether utilities are included, if a security deposit is required, whether pets are allowed and what cleaning fees to expect at the termination of the lease. Other questions may address what amenities are included, whether there is an assigned parking space and the distance to the nearest grocery store. A checklist typically includes a record of the visual condition of the apartment. This helps renters ensure that they are not held responsible for any damages already present on the property.
