apt walk-thru this thursday-
Hey Y'all- I am finally getting out of the apt and into a house! My lease ends Thursday, and I am having a walk-through that afternoon. Any advise? At the end of it, can I expect them to have a final list of dings, or do they have the option to add things later?
--My bro and I shared this apt - he had a dog in there, so there are carpet/urine stains which have been cleaned up well, but still noticeable. He paid $500 pet deposit, understanding that half would be forfeited. We would like to get the other half of that deposit back. The dog did no other damage; didn't chew baseboards, tear up carpet, etc. And the place does not smell like a dog even lived there!
Also- the apt had a ceiling leak in a bedroom. They patched it up (without fixing the roof leak). It emerged again: a crack running along one of the boards in the ceiling. I told apt employee who jotted a note on some scrap of paper. no one ever came to repair, and I never told them about it after that - I worried that the leak would run farther along to where I couldn't predict where it would drip in heavy rain.
Any advice would be helpful.
