Our Leasing Only service package includes a basic habitability check during the Property Walkthrough. The habitability check will address specific items within the home that could impact habitability as defined by state or federal law.

Walkthrough checklist:

  • 1 smoke detector per room*
  • 1 carbon monoxide (CO) alarm per floor of the home (preferably in hallway)*
  • All utilities turned on and functioning
  • Gas and heat fully functioning
  • Property is clean and decluttered for photos and showings (including carpets if applicable)
  • All lights and light bulbs are working
  • All doors and windows are operational. Open, close, and lock.
  • Both hot and cold water are running throughout home
  • No visible leaks under sinks or in bathrooms
  • Ideally 2 copies of the front door key, but at least 1 is required
  • 1 copy of all other access door keys (spider door, back door, sliding door, screen door, etc)
  • At least 1 copy of any community keys or fobs (mailbox, storage, garage, gates, pool, gym, etc.)

*If your property does not have smoke detectors or CO alarms, our Field Operations team can install them for a small charge. Please check your local laws regarding requirements for smoke and CO detectors.
