Professionalism creates a good relationship
Having a checklist of actions to review before a tenant moves in can help make the transition easier and ensure you do not miss any important steps. While having a solid onboarding process will help establish a good relationship with the tenant.
The exact steps of your new tenant checklist will likely depend on your specific procedures for screening tenants, how in-depth your lease agreement is, and the steps involved in having them move in. You can and should create a list that's unique to your rental property.
