GETTING THE TENANT MOVED IN

Florida Real Estate Investors

By Bobbie Witt

INSPECT THE UNIT

This is key to a successful relationship between you as the Landlord and the tenant.  The Move In Inspection is the most important inspection as you will document the unit in the condition it is in prior to the tenant moving in.  The best practice for this is to download an App that is specific to property management inspections.  This App will have a floorplan template that you can create, you will mark the items condition and you will take pictures and video.  A well-documented inspection should take about an hour and one-half to two hours.  Once you have completed the inspection you will be able to create a report that you can share with the tenants.  Then you will repeat this process at move out and compare the two side by side.  Or, you can hire a Home Inspection professional; this will require a fee, but well worth the cost.

TENANT MOVE IN PACKET

We provide the tenants with a Move In Packet that contains the following:

  • Welcome Letter that details the move in packet and utility and/or association information
  • Fully executed Lease Agreement
  • Resident Handbook that detailed; such as how to pay the rent, where to report maintenance items, how to handle emergencies, cleaning and care information (to name just a few)
  • A copy of the rules of the association if they are moving into a restricted community.
  • A copy of the Florida Statue Landlord/Tenant law brochure
  • A magnet for their refrigerator listing the daily contact and emergency contact

ISSUING THE KEYS AND TURNING OVER POSESSION

Once you have collected the security deposit and first month’s rent and the funds have cleared you are ready to turn over the unit to the new tenant.  Another thing to verify before you give them the keys is  to make sure the utilities are out of your name and into theirs.  If they haven’t done this you will not give them the keys.  Once they are moved in it is very difficult to get them to switch the utilities.  If you require renters insurance you will want to make sure they have taken care of this as well.  Now that all your “T’s” are crossed and “I’s” dotted you will welcome your new tenant into their new home!

Congratulations!
