Apartment Inventory List

We strongly recommend that you go through the apartment you are moving into together with your landlord or flatmates, check what items are in the kitchen, living room and so on. Create an apartment inventory list. This will help you avoid disputes with your landlord or flatmates when it's time to move out.

If there already is an apartment inventory list then go through everything carefully and update the list accordingly. If the landlord claims that something is missing when it's time to move out but it's not listed in the apartment inventory check list it will help settle the dispute since everything in the apartment should be on that list.

When you are going through the apartment make sure to take photos to support the information in the inventory list. Take a picture of any damages that are not documented.

When you are satisfied with the inventory list you can sign off on it. If there is any incorrect information or discrepancies make sure to work it out before signing.
