The Georgia move-in/move-out checklist is a document used to report damage to the premises of a rental property both at the start and end of a tenancy agreement. It allows the landlord to make a distinction between issues caused by the new tenant and any damage that previously existed in the rental unit. If the landlord requires the pre-payment of a security deposit, this checklist will need to be filled out and presented to the tenant for inspection before the initial date of occupancy. Both parties must sign the completed form to acknowledge the correctness of the condition report. After the tenant moves out, the landlord will have three (3) business days to compile a list of property damage and itemize any charges to be deducted from the security deposit.
