Tenancy Inventory Check Out Form Template

The purpose of a tenancy checkout form template is to inspect the rental property, including its walls, furniture, paint, appliances, floors, etc. to see if its present condition is comparable to when the tenant first moved in. This is to ensure that there is no excessive wear that could depreciate the property’s value. If there are any gross damages that the tenant is liable for, a landlord has the right to claim the safety deposit and use the money for repairs.

Streamline Your Tenant Check-Out Process with This Comprehensive Form Template


When a tenant moves out, it’s important to conduct a thorough check-out process to ensure everything is in order and any necessary repairs or cleaning can be made. Using a tenant check-out form template can help streamline this process and ensure all necessary information is collected.


This comprehensive template should include sections for documenting the condition of the unit, any damages or necessary repairs, and whether the tenant has returned all keys and equipment. It should also include a section for documenting any outstanding balances or fees owed by the tenant.


Having a standardized form for check-out can help prevent misunderstandings or disputes between the landlord and tenant and can ensure a smooth transition for both parties. By using this template, you can save time and effort in conducting check-outs and have peace of mind knowing that all necessary information has been collected.

Please note that this checklist template is a hypothetical appuses-hero example and provides only standard information. The template does not aim to replace, among other things, workplace, health and safety advice, medical advice, diagnosis or treatment, or any other applicable law. You should seek your professional advice to determine whether the use of such a checklist is appropriate in your workplace or jurisdiction.
