Our property manager goes over move in and move out videos. Move in videos are done prior to the tenant moving in. The tenant is not allowed to be present. Depending on the size of the house, it can be 5-20 minutes long. This gets the condition of the home documented before possession is given to the tenant.
Move out videos are also done without a tenant being present. These videos are done after the tenant has vacated the home.
Video documentation like this really protects the property. It’s hard to dispute video evidence, especially when they agree that the move in video was in fact accurate.
