What is included in a walk through?

Walk throughs should include a complete tour of the unit and its features. If the tenant comes across issues with the unit during a walkthrough, they should take notes and pictures of their concerns and address them with the landlord prior to move in. If these fall under the disclosures of the landlord then it is up to the landlord to fix these issues before the move in date. Tenants should look out for the following before signing:

  • Holes or cracks in ceiling or damaged floors
  • Signs of leaking water or water damage in the floor, walls or ceiling
  • Mold that could be a safety hazard
  • Rust in the taps or water pipes
  • Leaks in kitchens, bathrooms and sinks
  • Lack of hot water
  • Poor lightning and insufficient electrical outlets
  • Insufficient heating/cooling systems
  • Issues with electrical wiring and fixtures
  • Damaged furnishings in furnished units
  • Signs of pests (insects, rodents, vermin)
  • Poor sanitation (dirt and debris)
  • Insufficient garbage/trash receptacles
  • Chipping paint in older buildings, paint chips could potentially contain lead
