Steps to take before or upon move-in:

- Document in writing with the landlord any issues with your unit upon move-in. Some landlords have a check-in sheet.
- Document in writing with the landlord if the carpet is new or used upon move-in. Upon or prior to move-in ask the landlord about the age of the carpet and the lifespan of the particular carpet and document this conversation in writing.
