While many people are fortunate enough to own their own homes, some people rent. I’ve rented a few homes in the past many years and one of the things that we’ve always done is fill out a condition report on the home when we move in so that when we move out, we can prove that the stain on the carpet (hole in the wall, tear in the screen…) was already there and we won’t be charged for the damage. I’d advise anyone moving into a rental house or apartment to fill out a form like this to help cover them for any damage charges (or at lease fewer charges) when they move out.
