OK, so you are about to close in a few days on your apartment and you need to know what to look for before you sign. Here is a checklist of things that you should be aware of.

____ All receptacles and switches work, proper polarity checked
____ GFCI receptacles tested and working
____ Switches and receptacles are the proper color
____ All device plates installed straight and tight to the walls
____ Light bulbs installed in all fixtures and all in working condition
____ Telephone Jacks working
____ Cable TV Jacks working
____ Network jacks working
____ Door Bell working
____ Toilets all working
____ Faucets all working
____ Showers, bathtubs, and whirlpools all working
____ No scratches, chips or nicks on any plumbing fixtures
____ Hot water heat, each zone working properly
____ Painting satisfactory in all rooms, closets and stairways no touch-ups required
____ Walls, no dents, scratches, nicks or bad finish
____ Windows all working and sealed properly
____ Doors all working and sealed properly.
____ All the glass windows and doors good with no cracks or chips
____ Wood floors properly installed and finished with no stains or marks
____ Carpets properly installed with no stains and all seams match
____ All interior wood trim and moldings in place and properly installed
____ All Air Conditioning working properly
____ Heating units working properly
____ Appliances like the washer, dryer, and oven ect. are all working properly
____ All cabinets and counter tops checked for scratches, nicks, cuts, cracks or chips
____ All tiles checked for scratches, nicks, cuts, cracks, or chips
____ All cabinet doors open and close properly
____ All cabinet hardware installed properly
____ Check all options such as garbage disposal, multi jet showers, steam baths, saunas, intercoms, concierge phone, alarm system, etc.
____ Received all instruction manuals, directions and warranties

____ Check all the common areas of the building

The worst thing is to find damage after closing. At that point it is very hard to get things fixed. Do I recommend bringing a home inspector to the walk through? Not really. These are things that most people could check and evaluate on their own. One small trick of the trade is bringing your cell phone charger to check all the outlets.
