How to avoid disputes with tenants when they move out
If you’ve been a landlord for very long, you know that move-outs can be a common time for disputes to arise, especially if you had to use part of their deposit for maintenance, cleaning, etc.

- Absorb the costs and return the deposit to the tenant…
- Or thoroughly document the condition of the property before tenants move in, then hold them to that standard.
This video offers some tips on proper documentation before tenants move in to help you reduce absorbed costs, and tenant disputes.
