The Nevada move-in/move-out checklist is a record completed by the tenant and landlord before the start and after the end of a residential tenancy that details the condition of a dwelling. It is used to provide proof of any damage to the rental unit that occurred during the tenancy in order to avoid any dispute concerning security deposit deductions. A portion of a security deposit may be withheld to cover repair costs for any damage indicated in the move-out portion of the checklist, not including normal wear and tear. If the tenant disagrees with an item in the landlord’s move-out inspection, they may deliver a written dispute to the landlord within thirty (30) days of receiving the landlord’s notice, whereupon the landlord must return the full deposit unless the claim is refuted. The checklist must be signed by and agreed upon by both parties to be deemed accurate.
