Move In/Move Out Rental Inspections
Let ProTec document the condition of your rental property prior to new occupancy.
When required by your county, you will need to conduct a rental inspection for your property before taking on tenants.
Baltimore requires rental inspections every two years or between tenants. This is done to ensure that the units meet local requirements and ensure you’re protected if anything goes awry within your property.
You will need a state-licensed home inspector to assess your units, following the county’s provided forms to make sure it’s approved. To find out what yours may require, refer to their website for more information.

What Do Rental Inspectors Look For?
As stated above, rental inspections will vary by county and city, but to get a general idea, we’ve pulled examples of requirements from Baltimore County’s rental inspection checklist:
"Smoke Detectors must be present and operational on every level excluding unoccupied attics, garages or crawl spaces. "
"Electrical wires are not visible in living areas."
"There is hot and cold running water in kitchen and each bathroom with no leaks below sink area and all toilets flush."
"There are no sleeping areas in the basement or if there is a sleeping area in the basement, there is a secondary means of escape."
"The furnace is either operational or because of outside temperatures it is unable to be tested"
"Hand Railing is present for interior and exterior steps with more than 3 risers."
" Homes with 2-6 apartments; Do the wood balcony railings meet the requirements of the minimum livability code?"
"Carbon Monoxide Detectors are present on every level of the dwelling and audible in sleeping areas."
" Are there any other readily observable problems that in the inspector’s opinion represent an immediate threat to the health or safety of occupant? "
