Yes, the tenant needs to be present. Moreover, you should take pictures and/or video to document everything, for your own protection, in the event you deduct money from the deposit for repairs and they dispute it.

I am scheduling an inspection for tomorrow, March 1, 2012. Tenant says her schedule does not permit. May I procceed with out the tenant being present?
Lawyer: LandlordTenantAnswer, Attorney replied 6 years ago
You need to do it at a time which is mutually agreeable, to some extent. Give her more then one date and time, so work with her and if those don't work and she is unwilling to work with you, you could then proceed after making a good faith effort.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
