If you’ve ever lost a deposit on an apartment for something that happened before you moved in then you’ll know how important it is to inspect everything before moving . This guide walks you through what you should do when moving to a new apartment so you can protect yourself against ever loosing another deposit for something that wasn’t your fault again!
Whenever you move into a new apartment make sure you have your phone camera waiting in the wings. Taking pictures of the entire apartment beforehand will give you a visual reference of how the apartment looked before you moved in.
Remember, you’re renting not buying, so it’s the responsibility of the management staff to fix any and all problems with the apartment before you move in, not after. The last thing you want to do is move into an apartment that has previous damage on the promise that they will ‘fix it later’. This could lead to a he said, she said, situation about the damages in question.

If you’ve ever moved out of an apartment and not gotten your security deposit back due to something that you didn’t do, you know how frustrating it can be.
