Landlords: Preliminary Walk-Throughs Are Important Before a Tenant Moves In!

Landlords should always, without exception, conduct a preliminary walk-though at the rental unit, with the tenant, before the tenant moves in. The landlord should also do a similar walk through when the tenant is about to leave the rental unit.

The move in/out form will detail every item in every room of the rental unit. The landlord and tenant can check off the condition of the rooms. It is crucial for the landlord to do this, and to have the tenant sign at move in and again at move out. This will greatly protect the landlord against claims of damage and habitability defenses in the event that an eviction is necessary. It will also help the landlord when it comes time to account for the security deposit.

Landlords: Make sure you conduct a preliminary walk through with all tenants before they move in to your property!

Here’s what a typical move in/out form might look like (you should include pages for every room in the unit):

Landlords Duty to Deliver Possession of Rental Property to the Tenant

When a landlord agrees to rent property to a tenant to begin on a specific date, the landlord is obligated to deliver possession on that date.

In order to deliver possession of the rental unit to the tenant, the landlord needs to make the unit available. This can be done by giving the keys to the tenant. The landlord also needs to make sure there is no one currently living in the unit. The landlord must also deliver the unit to the tenant in a habitable condition.

If the landlord does not deliver possession to the tenant, the tenant might be able to abandon the tenancy and sue the landlord for damages.

Tariff Publishing for Moving Companies

Moving companies that transport household goods between states are required to have a tariff.  A tariff is a document that sets forth the rules a company will follow and the rates that a company will apply to all of its shipments.

The Law Office of David Piotrowski will create your custom tariff for you that complies with legal requirements. Attorney Piotrowski has been assisting interstate household goods moving companies for many years with their tariff publishing needs.

With Mr. Piotrowski’s tariff solution, the client will be provided with a tariff questionnaire form to complete.  The questionnaire form asks for the name of the moving company, it’s rates, packing charges, policies, and more.  Once the questions are returned to Attorney Piotrowski’s law firm, the firm will begin creating your very own custom tariff. Your tariff will be compliant with USDOT regulations.

Once you answer the tariff questions and finalize your payment, Mr. Piotrowski’s firm will get started immediately. Normal turnaround times for a complete custom tariff publishing solution is about 3-5 business days. The firm also offers an expedited, 1 day tariff publishing solution.

When your custom household goods tariff is completed, the law firm will mail a copy to you that meets tariff publishing requirements. Upon request, the firm will also email you a PDF version of your published tariff.

Give us a call at (877) 875-6958 to get started.
