The Utah move-in/move-out checklist is a form used during the assessment of a rental unit’s condition before and after a resident’s lease term. Before entering a rental agreement, the owner must provide a written inventory of the rental unit’s condition and allow the prospective resident to conduct a walkthrough inspection of the premises. Upon entering into a rental agreement, the owner must furnish a move-in checklist for the resident to record the state of the dwelling, to which the owner must provide a reasonable time for the resident to complete. Once the lease expires, the owner will use the move-out portion of the form to detail any damage beyond ordinary wear and tear, and then use this information to make deductions to the tenant’s security deposit. If the property owner/manager and residents accept the inspection results, the move-in/move-out checklist must be signed by all parties.
