It can be hard for landlords to collect all the documents that they need to rent their place before listing and showing it for the first time. New landlords and property managers will find this even harder, as they are not sure what to expect before getting someone in the door. Though there are several important forms that need to be used to rent the property (rental lease forms, rental applications, etc) some of the less critical (or legally required) forms still have a practical purpose in the process and should not be left out.
Almost everything that constitutes the dwelling - inside and out - should be included in the checklist. The more specific and detailed the rental checklist is, the more beneficial for both parties (though in general, its more beneficial for the landlord as it ensures that the tenant knows what they are responsible for). If the unit is a multi-family home or large complex, the exterior of the property probably does not need to be included as the property manager is almost always responsible for maintenance and upkeep.
One thing that every professional party planner uses to guarantee their success is a party planning checklist. With so many details and dates to remember, not having a checklist is a sure way to allow details to get away from you and see your stress levels soar through the roof.
The first independently owned restaurant was a success because the restaurant provided exactly what their customers wanted, and found a way to build on it. They built success by being consistent, providing the food and beverages their customers wanted, and having excellent customer service. Using consistency in the restaurant can be maintained by using forms, checklists, spreadsheets and other systems designed to build success.
